    Default Lake Okeechobee

    First of all I would like to wish everyone a healthy and happy Thanksgivings. Will be headed for Okeechobee January3 Never been there before. My method of fishing is spider rigging. Will be staying on the north end of the lake. Would you recommend fishing the lake or would the river be my best bet. Thanks for any advice.

    If you're set on spider rigging, the river. Most people on the lake will be jigging in the thick stuff.

    Good question, I'd like to know, myself. Lots of the thick stuff is just floating with a void from the top foot or so to the bottom. I could see it picking up fish under the mats. You need to report back, I'll be on the north end from Dec 10 to Jan 17.

    Captain k. When you say fish the bankís. Do you mean the brake line or as close as possible.

    I do best in the river on the break from 10 to 18 ft. When the bite is going good it gets busy and hard to maneuver around the other boats. I usually anchor with 2 anchors and use live minnows. Night fishing is usually better but have done well early morning at times. Name:  IMG_20201126_080701496_HDR.jpg

    Go to Fast Break tackle shop and spend 15 or 20 bucks on a couple telescopic rods.
    Then get into the tall grass along with most others. lol
    Actually its a pretty cheap way to get into spider rigging as well.

    You made a good choice with Suzuki. Itís my understanding theyíre pretty much bulletproof.
