If you going to Lake Okeechobee then you must go fishing. Lake Okeechobee is the second largest freshwater lake in the United States. The 730 square mile lake is located in south central Florida. It is shallow (average depth 9 feet or 2.7 meters) and provides an ideal habitat for bass.
The “Big O” is the place to go if you want to catch big bass. It is a fisherman’s paradise. You can expect to tangle with 7-10 pound bass. The lake record is 15 pounds 5 ounces. While fishing is very good year-round it is particularly spectacular during spawning season.
Lake Okeechobee has a number of famous fishing areas including the Monkey Box, Moonshine Bay, Fisheating Creek, Hay Fields, and the Cow Pasture. Information from Okeechobee Bass Fishing
