CAPTAIN MIKE SHELLEN www.OkeechobeeBassFishing.com 863-357-0892 Our winter guest are pouring into town at record pace.

The launch areas around the lake are seeing heavy pressure as a result. I would like to offer several tips to those anglers that don’t launch their boat everyday and may be a little rusty . When you and your family are prepping your boat prior to launching, please do it well away from the ramp itself. Make sure that your straps are off of your motor and all of the equipment you need for your fishing day are loaded into the boat, in essence do not back down onto a loading ramp and then prep your boat for launching, so that when you back down the ramp all that you have to do is launch the boat and then go fishing. It makes the whole boat launch experience more enjoyable for everyone and keeps altercations at the ramp to a limit. Fishing around the lake has been at a peak! Speck anglers are catching daily limits of large specks in the heavy cover areas along the North shore. Jigs are outperforming minnow in the cover areas with minnow working better in open water. Bass fishing is offering something for everyone, senkos, flukes, top water baits, swim baits and flipping jigs are all drawing a lot of action. Shiners are getting eaten about as fast as you can get them in the water. An Okeechobee newcomer Jim Doll from Ky ventured onto the lake with us this week and caught a 10lb 8oz giant along with 40 other bass. It’s that time of year!
