Lake Okeechobee Fishing Forecast – May


Fishing on the big O has been good for bass fishing. The bream bite is starting so book your fun filled fishing day for bream and bass. The crappie season ended in April with another great year in the books, catching big numbers and quality-sized specks, book your crappie trips soon for the upcoming season to get your preferred dates. The water level of Lake Okeechobee is still being lowered so please use caution in areas of the lake that have a rock bottom! Bass fishing with lures has been very productive especially when using patience, some lures to consider are: hard top-water lures to the flip- ping-pitching bite with the most productive bites coming from swim baits; senkos; spinner baits and shallow crank baits.

For the beam bite, using live-crickets and small-red worms rigged on ultra-light tackle works best. Areas around the lake that have been productive and producing both bass and bream fishing have been around the Monkey box/Harney pond area; areas around Kreamer Is- land and Rita Island; some parts of the rim ditch on the south-end around South-bay; around horse island; a few areas around tin house; some areas between 3rd point and 1st point; the pass and the Kissimmee river. Bass colors for plastics have been: Junebug; Redbug; Black/Blue; Watermelon Red. For cranking lures: Shad and Bream and Spinner baits skirts have been darker colors to match the bream and white for the threadfin bite.
