Short Take: 467,000 acres (second largest lake wholly within U.S. boundaries); shallow, abundant vegetation, some rocks. Whenever the words “bass fishing” and “South Florida” are mentioned in the same sentence, the subject is likely to be Lake Okeechobee, the 467,000-acre mini-ocean at the mouth of the Kissimmee River. Not only is the lake huge, it has bass fishing to match; Okeechobee unquestionably ranks as one of the finest fishing lakes in the United States. “It’s almost ironic that we have more than 460,000 acres of water to fish, but we probably really only utilize about 75,000 acres,” laughs Steve Daniel, a Clewiston-based guide who has been fishing Okeechobee since 1984. “The simple truth is that the best way to catch bass here is by staying close to some type of vegetation, and that means working around the shoreline or in the Rim Canal.” Lake Okeechobee is known for producing numbers of fish as well as trophy fish, and either can come on any given cast. Even tournament anglers who normally fish too fast to catch many trophy-sized bass catch big fish on this lake. Primary Species: Largemouth bass.
