Lake Okeechobee

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.

The Another quality bass from Lake Okeechobee.Big “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.  You can send a check or money order to Fargo's, 1550 Sassy Rd., Clewiston, Fl. 33440 or give us a call and we will explain more in detail.
