August Fishing Report

Good¬†bass fishing in the earliest hours of the day, but don’t be late.
Try Kreamer Island’s Long Point and the shorelines from Coot Bay to the East Wall for bass. Sales of crickets have been good, with most anglers dunking baits along the Rim Canal in areas where there is moving water, like the Moore Haven Lock and John Stretch Park, at the mouth of the Miami Canal in South Bay.
Come on down to Roland Martin’s Marina to start your Lake O bass fishing trip.

Late March Okeechobee Fishing Report

Captain Tom Mann reports that the Lake level is 12.74 and falling. Most all fish are moving to the outside of Lake Okeechobee with the water falling and the water temps rising. Numbers have been good this week with a few good fish. South outside long point is a good area for fishing. Pepper grass early white swimjig. Shad spawn is about to happen and that means the early bite will be good. Shoal has been good this week for small fish on the outside. North shore remains good but is getting the most pressure. Live bait is still best for the big fish.

March Fishing Report

Pelican Bay has produced numbers of fish in the 1-3 pound range. Mostly male fish that are either guarding a bed or fry. We are in the period of pre and post spawn as well as spawning so moving baits such as Big EZ or Swim Jigs have worked well. Color seems to be white or shad colors along with Copperfield. Inside Buzzards Roost the holes and pockets around lily pads have fish hanging around them more in the afternoon when the sun gets up. Dead stick a Watermelon Red Zoom Super Fluke or a Gambler Fat Ace in Watermelon Red or Junebug. The Crappie fish are still biting around the Hog Pen and along the Rim Canal south toward Bear Beach Channel. Use Minnows around the cattails in 2-3′ of water . In the rim canal fish in 4-6’range. Good luck and stay safe.
