Fishing the outer edge

If you fish on any of the lakes that are part of a river system, you probably already know that right now that the water levels are receding. Water once again is being pulled to flood the fields for the farmers down south and to lower the water levels for the upcoming hurricane season. So let’s take a few minutes to go over a few things during this less-than-ideal time.

In my last tournament, we fished the Kissimmee chain of lakes. This next month we will be heading off to The Big O, Lake Okeechobee. On these two bodies of water, the water will be pulled and we will run out of places back in the covered areas to fish. Okeechobee is shallow anyway, and when that water is drawn down, you simply can’t get back to some areas that you can fish when the lake is at a normal level.
