During the winter months, no other bait accounts for the catching of more bass and big bass on Lake Okeechobee than a wild golden shiner.
As we approached December’s full moon, the large bass made their presence known, when anglers caught bass to 9.8-pounds along with numerous other fish in the 7- to 8-pound class.
Great numbers of big bass are beginning to make their way in off the main lake fast and hard.
Crappies are beginning to make their way in as the temperature changes which is always a signal that things are about to begin for largemouth bass fishing.
The bass have already started moving toward the grass beds chasing bait so the spawning season will be just around the corner
