Fall Fishing on Lake Okeechobee

Posted by tom on September 15, 2014

20140629_072124.jpgFall is almost here and Lake Okeechobee is in awesome shape. Water level is 14.50 and it took 28lbs. to win this weekend. As always, flippin is the main deal right now for the big fish. For me it’s been the Yamamoto Flappin Hog, black blue, that been working best. There is a good swimjig bite for the first hour in the morning, and as always the Senko is working well. Most fish are on the outside grass lines but the water temp. is coming down and the fish are starting to move back somewhat. It looks like it’s going to be an awesome year on the Big O. If you or someone you  know is thinking of coming down this fall or winter they need to call soon, I am booking up fast. Come fish with me on the best lake in the country.

20140530_084007.jpgWow is all I can say about the fishing on Lake Okeechobee right now. The water level has fallen to 12.46 and the fish have moved to the outside. In the morning a swimjig with a Yamamoto swimming senko has been best for me in black blue. After that we have been pitching a Flappin Hog black blue with a ¾ tungsten weight in the outside grass lines. The whole lake is good right now, you can catch 30 to 40 fish a day with no problem. Lake Okeechobee is in the best shape I have seen it in for a long time. Come fish the best big bass lake in the country with Tom Mann Jr.
