Bio: I am Scott Martin and would love to take you Bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee or in the Florida Everglades. I have been Bass fishing for 19 years and pride myself on making sure that you have a Florida Bass fishing Trip of a lifetime as well as learning a lot of fishing techniques to make you a better fisherman.
Lake Okeechobee is world Famous for it's Largemouth Bass fishing as well as being known as the greatest lake in the country for it's "year-round Bass fishing". Lake Okeechobee and the Florida Everglades have continued to produce large numbers of Trophy Bass with that number steadily on the rise year after year.

[Lake Okeechobee,FL] Clewiston-----The wind the past week has been relentless on th lake Okeechobee, with north and east winds blowing up to twenty five miles and hour the lake has become muddy on most of the south end of Okeechobee. The West Wall has remained fishable but it too has become dirty from the wind, We did ok on wild shiners in this area most of the week with the inside area being the most productive.
[Lake Okeechobee,FL] Clewiston-----The fishing on Okeechobee is improving by the day not to say it is great yet but we are starting to catch more and bigger bass almost everyday. The nights are starting to cool off and the water temperatures are also dropping a few degrees and all of this have the bass starting to feed much better.
[Lake Okeechobee,FL] Clewiston-----The bass fishing this past week has taken a turn for the better in spite of the cold front that came through at the end of the week. The lake level is at 13.07 above sea level and dropping slowly and the water is clean in most areas from Ritta Island to Tin House Cove.
[Lake Okeechobee,FL] Clewiston-----The fishing is starting to pick up as the fall season approaches and the water temperatures start to cool off. We are just coming off a full moon and the bass are finally starting to eat both wild shiners and artificial lures.
[Lake Okeechobee,FL] After tropical storm Ernesto went through our area and did little damage except for the rain that has the lake level rising and the fishing really starting to pick up.
[Lake Okeechobee,FL] With the heat of summer upon us and the lake level staying low, the fishing hasn't slow down much. You will want to try and get an early start so you can be in before the afternoon thunderstorms,as they can be real bad ones this time of the year.
