March 24 – April 10, 2018 – Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing Report

This week on Lake Okeechobee the fishing has been outstanding despite the front that came through over the weekend. 

 The windy conditions made it a little more challenging. The water clarity on the lake is not as good as it has been and limits the area of fishing. Fortunately, my go to pockets still produced the numbers I have been catching and we’ve seen sizes up to 7lbs. 

 BASS fishing on Lake Okeechobee right now is consistent with my theory of how the fish move with the Moon Phase we just passed. The current water temperatures is approximately 74°,and the weather forecast shows warming temperatures which is a good sign for the spawn. 

The best bait has been the shiners in the morning. After the morning bite is over, throwing a SENKO has been really good, too. I highly recommend fishing the following areas like the Grassy Island, Tin House, Monkey Box and Shalee Island.

 Here is a picture of one of my charter’s catch the first week of April which landed one over 7lbs with wild shiners.
