Buzzbait Fishing at Lake Okeechobee FL- Topwater Largemouth Bass Fishing

Buzzbait bass fishing at Lake Okeechobee, Florida

This was my first time fishing legendary lake okeechobee in Clewiston, Florida and the fishing was tough.
We started off the day by fishing some topwater frogs around all the vegetation we could find. After getting no bites, I switched to a watermelon swimbait and started swimming it through the grass. We managed to catch a few largemouth bass that way, but our goal for that day was to catch a 5 to 10 pound bass. So what i ended up doing for the rest of the day was fishing a white buzzbait through the grass in search for a big bite. The topwater bite wasn’t strong, but I was confident I could catch a more decent bass on it than on the swimbait.
It got extremely hot with tempertures over 100 degrees! This really slowed down the bite, and I wasn’t able to get the big bass I was after.
It was still a great experience, and it was awesome to fish in the beautiful water of Lake Okeechobee in Clewiston Florida.
