The water level remains at safe operating level. The bass bite has remained good fishing, some days the bite is in spurts, other days it can be slower but the bites are bigger and days when you catch quantity and quality. Fishing vegetation and some open-water hot spots have been producing. For the most part, the water clarity of Lake O is beautiful and as you fish the lake you’ll notice variations of water clarity. Some parts of the lake are always known to be tan-icky in color other areas stained and other parts are very clear. All these variations of water color hold fish and have been very productive with senkos, frogs, and swim baits.
This fall is a great opportunity to brush up on techniques. The staple plastic colors that have been working are: gold-shad; white; june bug; red bug; green-pumpkin and some watermelon red. Gold-colored spinner bait blades; baby-bass and shad-colored crank baits have been producing as well. Crappie can be found/ caught in the deeper-water areas of the lake also the canals as well as the canals and river early morning and late afternoon till dark. Typical minnow-tipped jig presentation works best. If you want to learn to jig for crappie with plastic lures in vegetation, visit Okeechobee. You’ll learn a new technique, what to look for, lure presentation etc. It’s fun for the whole Family – you can apply this fishing your own body of water.
