Lake Okeechobee, which in Seminole
language means “Big Water,” is the second largest lake in the United States.
Lake Okeechobee is approximately 40 miles north to south and 30 plus miles
east to west and covers over 750 square miles. It is a very shallow
lake with an average depth of 15 feet.
Alligators, all types of
ducks, birds (ospreys, pelicans, and the occasional eagle, etc.) as well
as other wildlife are seen on Lake Okeechobee.
“O” is world renowned for its bass fishing, as well as speckled perch (crappie)
and bluegill (bream) fishing. Most of these species of fish are caught
in 2 to 6 feet of water, in areas of heavy vegetation. People from
all over the world come to fish Lake Okeechobee – especially popular is
the bass fishing (click on photo for a larger image, and use your browser's
back button to return).
Wild shiners, artificial
for bass, minnows, jigs for specks, crickets or spinners for bluegills,
along with normal tackle, fly rods & light tackle can be used.
Come down to Clewiston, Florida
and fish the Lake Okeechobee with Fargo.

I have 2 maps of Lake Okeechobee
- one is a laminated, what we call a place map; the other is a large Sportsman's
map with a lot of details on the lake and on this special introductory
offer, I will highlight about 20 of the better areas around the lake trying
to give you the how, what and when and a scale of 1 to 10 of the spawning
within this area. We will be glad to ship you both of these maps
for only $10.
