I fished with Mike Powers from Colorado on 5-21-13. This was Mike’s first trip to Lake Okeechobee and we had a fun day sharing stories and catching some fish. Mike was on a family vacation in Orlando and drove down to fish with me for a chance to catch a Lake Okeechobee monster. The fishing was slow for most of the day with dirty water present in almost every single place we fished. We did manage to catch a few nice ones but it almost seemed as if the fish didn’t want to eat. Look for the bite to get better throughout the week.
