This past week I enjoyed the company of K Ota and his lovely wife Miku. The first day we tried our luck with snakeheads . The fishing was a bit tough with catching only one Snakehead 1 peacock and a few largemouth.

Now day two was a much differant story as the couple caught over 40 Bass on Lake Okeechobee. We started out the day chasing schooling bass ,which turned out to very successful. We caught the bass on Rattle Traps , spinner baits and gambler Studs, up to 4lb. We then headed over to another spot and catching a few more worming in the open water. At one point the couple had three doubles.

Next Miku took charge catching these nice bass, as K took the pictures. She was also excited when she caught an 8 lb. Bofin. These are the biggest fish she as ever caught.
