WOW ! What away to end 2011 for Bill Dean from Georgia with a 10 lb. Okeechobee “Hawg”. Bill has been a client for the past 12 years and we always had a good time , but nothing like this trip.
We decided to sit back, relax, and fish wild shiners all day, this turn out to be a great choice.
After Bill missed the first three one being a 7 + , he started to connect with his first one.
Then he got a double.
After 6 more in the 3 – 5 LB. range he connected with what he thought would be his biggest, a 8 lb. lunker.
As the wind kicked up I decided go move deeper in the High Grass , first shiner caught a 4 lb. and in the next was his trophy 10.4 oz. life time Bass. This was one of those moments when the boy comes out of the man. Bill has never experienced a day of fishing like this, totaling 25 bass mostly over 3 lb.
Lake Okeechobee is on fire right now and if you want to catch that Big Bass now is the time and Capt. Frank Carbone , “The Original and Only Hawghunter” know where to find them. We are into our busy season which is also the prime season for bass, so book early while there are still some choice date’s.
