One of the best bass fisheries in the United States is right here in the state of Florida. Lake Okeechobee has been pumping out lunker catches for as long as I can remember. Even when I was bass fishing in Wisconsin in my younger days, Lake Okeechobee was viewed as the destination of choice amongst bass anglers.

Now is the time of year where you get those big bass to start moving around. We’ve had our first snap of cold weather, and the one thing that does to the bass on Okeechobee is to put them in a pre-spawn mode. The big fish will start moving around and feeding. They’re getting ready to hide out and wait for their time to lay their eggs.
