Lake Okeechobee Top 10 Baits

Okeechobee Midday Update Day 3

Okeechobee Top 5 Patterns Day 2

It’s official: the Costa FLW Series event presented by Power-Pole on Lake Okeechobee has turned into a casting and winding war. So far, there has been little talk of flipping or sight-fishing.

Okeechobee Midday Update Day 2

Day two of the Costa FLW Series presented by Power-Pole has been lights out at Okeechobee – not exactly the kind of “lights out” where it’s “game over, lights out,” but rather lights out in that it’s been dark and gloomy most of the day. The morning started with a thick fog over much of the lake. Then came a few wispy showers, followed by a crack of sunshine and then dark, low clouds. READ MORE »
