Lake O

Recommended Posts

Anyone been to the Lake lately?  I think I'll give it a go later this week.  I see the water's holding about just under 16'.

Fishing big and sloppy.  Grass and hycnth everywhere. Their spraying like mad so lots of dieing vegetation.

 

But the fish still have to eat.

 

23 won the Christian Trail up north 60 some odd boats, we came in just out of the money with 15 I think 16 cashed a check.

21# won our club T out of Harney last Saturday, with second at 18. Some good fish. As mentioned, lots of veggies on Northshore, Bird and the Box, some alive and some sprayed. Water temp still in the low 80s. Green water on the shoal as you work down toward Cochran's. I don't think anybody in our group went much north of Horse

I fished Okeechobee yesterday.  First time on the lake in over three months.  We got a little bit of a late start...fished from 7:30 - 1:00.  Nothing going at all on moving baits.  Finally caught a few flipping.  Only caught about eight fish, but size was good.  I got one good one (7.3lbs) and a couple 3s.   I lost another fish that was an absolute beast... :cry4: (hoping it was a mudfish).  Scraped together about a 16lb bag....if that beast I lost was a bass I was well in the 20s (Jared McMillian won the tourney yesterday @ 23lb w/ a 10lber).

 

I fished about 15 stretches and only two of them had any fish at all.  I feel pretty good about those two stretches...need to find a couple more (going out again this Thursday) to feel OK for my tourney next Sunday.

Tale of two way different days for me. Just practiced up off north shore sat for a few hours, there was a cracker boys tourney going on (bout 65 boats) which most seemed to be around there, I didn't catch anything, but i talked to Solis up there and he had I think around 27. For some reason I am always around the fish up there and can't seem to find a way to put them in the boat. We were flippin the same stretch to, oh well.

Fished slims yesterday and had big fish of the tourney with an 8 even. Only weighed 3 fish. I was throwing back 13 inchers early cause getting bites early was no problem, then about 9 a 25 mile an hour wind started and getting any bites was tough. I finally found a good stretch to punch about 215, got 5 bited in 20 min, but with time running out i was jumpy and missed em. But was happy with the big girl.

That was pretty much our day too. Ran up to shoal and northshore from Clewiston and caught them pretty good. Then that NE wind came up and blew up our areas. Made a not-so-fun run back down south and added a few punching mats

I fished slims tourny yesterday and had 15 pounds. We didn't get there until 8:30 because we were on the St. Johns River the day before. Found a head at 2:30 that I flipped up two four pounders. At 2:40 we had to leave to make weigh in. The hyacynth was so thick in the rim ditch, that you had to go through boyscout cut to get to pelican. The guy who won the slims event had 18 and change. He ran through that mass of hyacynth and banged up his lower unit coming back in. It always happens, when you win some cash something goes wrong with your boat.

 

Fred I think I saw you yesterday at slims with that beast. I didn't recognize you or otherwise I would have introduced myself. Did that big girl make it? One of her eyes looked pretty crappy. Glad you won some cash.

That hyacnth really started packing into the rim canal Friday.  When I  left early in the am there was a bit of it the rim.  As I was heading in a few hours later, the whole canal was covered.

Yeah she was good, and I was hard to see from what I am hearing. All I have gotten on Facebook is hell about my headwrap. Just trying to get a little cover from that sun. I should have uncovered but the fish was struggling a bit and I was just in a hurry to get her back in the water. 

Wish we could have done the intro's, I'm kinda shy being new, most of the time at these things most of the guys know each other so I just go about my business, so if any of you see me and I dont say anything its not personal, but yeah sorry I missed ya. Anyone fishing that thing they have going on sunday?

Cant figure out the picture posting so the 8lber is my profile pic.

You and Mike were right behind us pulling out of that boat trail. We would have said hi but figured you needed to make the weigh-in. I had Noah King with me and we were just fun fishing out of Clewiston

I'm going to fish BLM's tourney Sunday out of Slims.  It's my first tourney in about four months and a little pumped to get back in the swing of things again.

 

Would love to meet up with any of you who happen to be there.

If you are fishing the BLM tourney out of slims, consider also fishing the FGCU Fundraising tournament we have talked and will be allowing people to fish both. if you don't want to fish, at least get in on the 50/50 or Raffle.

BLM stands for Bottom Line Mike (Lendl). Mike runs the King of the Glades Tournament Trail which runs roughly from January thru May or June. He also organizes a  monthly club tournament, also called King of the Glades, which allows open competition. Google King of the Glades and you can can more info.

Just to clear up any confusion, The FGCU Fundraising tournament and King of the Glades will be going on at the same time and same place, this sunday at slims. instead of moving one we are allowing anglers to pay both entry fees and weigh the same fish for both tournaments.
