20150502_141932 (375x211).jpgWell summer is here and it's hot! Water temperatures are in the mid 80's.Some of the fish have already moved offshore. There are still plenty of fish in the inshore grass with swim baits working best for me. I have been using a 1/2 oz. Gambler swim bait with a Yamamoto swim senko trailer either solid white or black and blue. The swim bait bite gets over pretty early then go to a 5" black senko pitched in the grass. All fish are relating to the outside grass line. Most fish are 2 to 2-1/2 pounds with a good one every once in a while. Water level is 13.59 as I write this report and that's a little high for this time of year. Navigation is easy, you can run about anywhere without hitting anything. Overall the lake is in great shape and fishing is good. Give me a call and let's book a trip. Don't miss the opportunity to come fish the best bass lake in the country...Lake Okeechobee!
