Sunscreen and wind protection. It was warm and windy for sure. But, on the upside, no bugs !

A cold front had just gone through so the fish weren’t biting. I would recommend planning a trip from the middle of March through May, if possible.

Depends on time of year. Was hoping for some trophy largemouth but my first hooking up to some peacock bass was awesome

Plan for any type of weather, it was very nice day but then out of no where it rained hard for about 10 minutes, and got windy, but then it was nice again.

Don’t expect to go fully into Lake Okeechobee, as water levels run low in May, making it so you’re forced to fish the islands and canals on the perimeter of the lake. While you may not catch trophy fish, the bite is still extremely hot and you will put plenty of good fighting and good sized fish in the boat.

Talk to the operators of Slims Fish Camp. They are very knowledgeable and friendly. Great fresh bait and ready to serve you and offer advice. If you are going for the first time , it would be advisable to have a guide as the reeds and catlails could easily get you turned around. Our guide Captain William was fantastic.
