Sept 16 – Sept 28, 2016 – Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing Report

Lake Okeechobee and the surrounding area has had another couple of weeks of inclement weather and lots of rain. Overall, the fishing on Lake Okeechobee has been pretty good even though the heavy rainfall has caused the water level to be higher than usual.

 With the higher water levels comes cooler water temperatures in spots that have been home to many of the trophy fish I have caught in the past.  The water temps are from 85 – 90 and throughout the lake water clarity is good.  The  winds has been from the South/East with a mixture of some North wind in the morning.
The Kissimmee grass bit is slowing down some but there is some fish there but small. The best bait for these fish are swim jigs and spinnerbaits in the morning. Then get out the Big stick and flip/pitch the rest of the day. Keep in mind every day I find some thing they are not there the next day and I thing it is because of all the high water. You can check water levels on Lake Okeechobee at Here is a picture of a couple of fish I caught this week
