Mike and son Mark Hammus came to enjoy some time together and some Okeechobee Bass catching. The temp. this morning was only 43 deg. but the fish still bit for us! These guys sure can fish making the bites count today and landing several nice fish! Although the cold weather makes the bite a little slower some days the fish still eat and the fishing will continue to get better and better throughout the beginning of the year into Spring. These fish were caught on the South/West side of the lake but fish are being caught all over the lake on senko, worm, top water frogs, etc. The artificial bite is much much slower and can be extremely tough for anyone even the seasoned angler this time of year, but I was always told it a lot easier to feed them (ie.shiners) than fool them (ie.artificial)!
