10 crazy awesome facts about bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee that fans always ask me. I collaborated with my friend Captain Joey Berg to go thru fishing tips, seasonal lake patterns, your YouTube questions, and break down Lake Okeechobee myths and facts so if you are fishing for bass you know where and how to start. We talk about what type and what size fishing line, what are the best color soft plastic worm colors to use on the Lake, what are the facts about summer fishing versus bass fishing in winter, as well as the craziest times to catch GIANT bass during the year. These are all facts and tips I wish I would have known when I arrived in Florida LOL! So I hope they can help to lead you to more fun on the water and a better more diverse fishing experience!!!

I’m afraid if this continues it could kill Lake Okeechobee – one of the best freshwater fishereis in the country. Who is doing it? The REAL STORY is not in the news but you’ll hear about the toxic algae blooms on the coast. Killing grass on the lake has increased annually since 2010 and it’s not just invasive species being targeted anymore. Lake Okeechobee water levels have marched up – a story that should have made news in 2013 but was passed over until the crisis we find ourselves in now. I don’t have the answers and you need to remember no matter what “real story” you listen too there is an agenda and bias behind it. This is how I’ve watched the killing of Lake Okeechobee unravel since 2010 when I first arrived in South Florida. There isn’t one person to blame for the destruction of the lake but Okeechobee has been victim to a wide range of interests and politics which all in in all jeopardize the future of Florida’s greatest freshwater fishery!
