I posted this on the Open Water forum, but thought I'd put it here too, since I know some of you are waiting for open water.

On Sunday morning (8th) about 11.00, I will be on my way to Orlando. Temps down there have been in the 70's & 80's this week, and the WeatherUnderground forecast for next week is a slight "cooling" trend - partly cloudy and temps in the low to mid 70's.

I have to work M/T/W (attending a software user group conference at the Disney complex), but come Th & F, I will be sitting on Lk Okeechobee, fishing for LM Bass. For those of you who aren't familar with the Big "O", it is to LMB as Mille Lacs is to walleye, and Leech is to muskie.

With a little (OK - ALOT) of luck,
I hope to put something 6# or better in the boat.

According to the info I have (from guys I know down there), the bass are busy spawning right now.

Will be returning to the frozen tundra on Sat, and may hit the ice on Sunday (15th)
(bringing this thread back on topic).

Will post the details when I get back.

UG,

Good luck on the big "O". I myself have hired a guide and fished there once. The guide was great and we caught many fish. The guide told me there are more 10lb bass is Lake O than all the rest of the lakes in the USA.

Now the bad news. There is about a million 1-1.5 lbers for every 10 lber. He actually said that if I was looking for a trophy bass I should have hired a guide and fished the lakes in the Orlando area like the Kissimmee chain or Toho. The density of large fish is much higher in thos chains than it is on the big O.

Good luck. It is a fun lake to fish!

Have fun...I'm leaving in a week to Sanibel Island and going to get into some Bone fishing and maybe some Tarpon. Tired of all the snow, I am!

The joke may be on me gang.....

Check this snippet I just lifted from Weather Underground (a/o 4am) for the Orlando area:

"Wind Chill Advisory in effect until 9 am."

A flippin' cold front blew in.

AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!
