Lake Okeechobee is the second largest freshwater lake in the country.  It is arguably the best bass fishing lake as well.  The bass thrive in this lake with all of the forage and cover for them.  All types of grass are spread throughout this lake, which give the bass plenty of places to hide and rest.  The most popular way to fish this lake is with shiners and by flipping jigs or soft plastics around the cover.  If you are coming to Florida to catch a 10 pound bass, Lake Okeechobee is one of your best bets.  There are numerous bass over 10 pounds as well as tons of bass in the 2 to 5 pound range.  If you are going for a trophy bass, try the biggest shiners you can buy.  Big bass love shiners on Lake Okeechobee.  Take a look at our Lake Okeechobee Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
