With the summer patterns in full swing the guides here at www.okeechobeebassfishingguide.com have all managed to reach patterns resulting in lots of fish being caught. The best patterns all seem to start out the same with early morning bites coming on spinnerbaits and top water baits. However, once the morning bite is over the guides have had success on several other options. These options include; 10″ ribbontail worms, 5″ and 6″ senkos, trick worms (for those who choose to fish in deep water), and creature bait flipped on a (1/2) tungsten weight.

The guides have reported great fishing early in the mornings with trips ranging from 30-70 fish per morning trip. After 11:00 am the bite seems to slow down and is causing anglers and guides alike to slow down with the fish. Throwing senkos and 10″ worms have produced fish during this slow bite period. While other anglers have grabbed the good old flippin stick and cover water searching for those big bass. However, some guides have had success fishing in the Kissimmee River with trick worms during the middle of the day as the deep water provides fish with cooler water.

So what are you waiting for? Grab a buddy and get here on Lake Okeechobee and catch some great largemouth bass.
