20130525_081257.jpgThe past couple of weeks have been interesting on Lake Okeechobee. We had an early algae bloom that turned the water green, the good news is the fish are still biting. The last two tournaments took 37 and 34 last weekend. The live bait fishing has been great, the guys in the pic are Rocco (The Rock) and Jake Solomon, two brothers I took out this past Saturday. Rock caught his biggest bass ever…8.37 pounds and we caught lots of bass. The artificial bite has remained good. Some big fish are still being caught on the 1oz jigs. Numbers and big fish for me it’s the Senko in watermelon red. Another bait that I have fell in love with is the Kinami Psycho Dad. I have been pitching this bait in the isolated reed patches and catching some real good fish. If you have not tried this bait give it a try. I am sure you will like it. Lake Okeechobee water level is 13.40, still in great shape. As long as it stays high the fish will remain in the grass. Don’t hesitate to come fish the best bass lake in the country in the summer… it’s still good fishing.
