Hey folks this is Captain Mark Shepard with your Lake Okeechobee fishing report.

Fishing with Jeffrey and his dad, long time friends! We go way back! We had a two day trip, such an honor to be part of this adventure. We had a lot of fun…We fished in Ohio together a couple of times. Today we got started and the wind was blowing 30+ MPH, the sawgrass was laying down and it was kicking our tail. Of course, being from Ohio, they were wearing shorts! They like this 50 degree weather. You guys think you are though because you are from up north? When it gets cold in florida…it gets COLD! Finally, the wind went away, sun came out and we settled in a place. We got slammed, really good fish, wild factor on Lake Okeechobee always surprises me… 3 pounder after 3 pounder, very consistent! We got a couple of big ones too…It was one of those days you dream about, sun came out and it got a little warmer.

Well folks, this was Captain Mark Shepard. When you have the chance take a kid fishing! Tight lines everybody!
