Speckled perch are being caught lake wide; large bass are making their presence known...
All the bass in the lake are in a feeding frenzy as they eat to prepare for the long spawning season.
November is prime time for great shiner fishing; no other bait draws the interest and the eye of a big bass like a live wild golden shiner.
The cooler water will trigger Lake Okeechobee’s many bass to go on a feeding spree, gorging themselves on shad, shiners and whatever else they can track down.
The catch rates vary daily according to the amount of sunlight; some days 15 bass can be caught during that early morning bite and then other days 25 to 30 will fall prey to the spinnerbait.
