20140331_125114_281x375.jpgThe schooling fish are on in the peppergrass beds, the shad are starting to spawn in the peppergrass and the bass are right with them. I have been throwing a 3/8 oz.  white swimjig with a small swimbait trailer. Look for the birds at first light and  when you find them going to the water you have found the fish. The good thing is this year there is much more peppergrass than last year, this is a great sign for Lake Okeechobee. Senkos and Dshad have been my go to baits after the schooling stops in the morning, just stay in the same area and slow down with these baits, you will catch fish. For the big fish bite the jig and crawfish trailer in the reeds is still working best. Come fish the best bass fishing lake in the country Lake Okeechobee.
