This trip is run on Beautiful Lake okeechobee. This lake has come back well, the water level is up and the fishing is hot. If you like top water action come and check it out. Lake Istapoka has not been producing quite the numbers but quality Big fish. Sept. through March 1st is when you will catch the biggest bass as they are fattening up on shad schools.Sometimes I can catch you live bait sometimes you have to buy it.
