Lake Okeechobee is one of the most exciting places to fish in Florida. It covers 467,000 acres and is considered the “Mother of the Everglades” it is the second largest lake within the Lower 48. The Seminole Indian words ”Oki” (water) and “Chubi” (big) correctly describe it. Largemouth Bass, Black Crappy (Speckled Perch), Bluegill, and Redear (Shellcracker) are the dominant species.
Most crappie fishing efforts occur during the winter, but they can be caught yearly. Large-mouth Bass, Bluegill, and Shellcracker fishing are very consistent all year. Lake Okeechobee fishing
