The Seminole Indian words”oki” (water) and “chubi” (big) correctly describe it. Largemouth Bass, Black Crappy (Speckled Perch), Bluegill, Redear (Shellcracker) are the dominant species.
Most crappie fishing efforts occur during the winter, but they can be caught all year. Large-mouth Bass, Bluegill and Shellcracker fishing is very consistent all year. Lake Okeechobee fishing
