After watching my daughter struggle on Lake Okeechobee during two one-day tournaments this past weekend, I decided it was time to teach her some of the basics about bass fishing real fast.

The first day she fished a tournament on Lake Okeechobee was this past Saturday. I had heard there were big bass being caught out on the main lake, but the wind was up a little bit and I was trying to get her to run the trolling motor all day — which she has to do in the high school tournaments here in Florida. So rather than see her get beat up in the taller vegetation trying to catch fish, I thought it would be best to take her into the rim canal and let her run the trolling motor and work on casting to spots.
