Lake Okeechobee is the most “famous big bass lake” in Florida, well-known for the quantity and quality of bass the lake produces. This reputation on Lake Okeechobee has continued for many years as producing the biggest and best large-mouth bass fishing in Central Florida. On Okeechobee the two primary ways to fish are with artificial lures or wild shiners. Bass fishing on the “Big O” with wild shiners is the preferred bait for many anglers for trophy bass. It just happens that it’s the natural food that they feed on daily. Wild Shiner fishing became very popular many years ago when anglers fishing Okeechobee for largemouth bass would see their feeding habits. It has become the increasingly popular choice because once you’ve experienced this style of fishing you’ll quickly recognized that its much more than just sitting and watching.
