Lake Okeechobee is still one of the best production in Florida lakes and is considered one of the best lakes in the country for bass fishing. Located in south central Florida, the "Big O" covers 730 miles square and is easily accessible from the east and west coasts of Florida. FWC biologists expect age ideal for this lake this year. The lake rose 16 feet in early 2003 due to higher rainfall than average in the upper lakes. Because of the drought 2001, the lake has experienced positive changes in vegetation. Lake Okeechobee has a 13 – to limit the 18-inch slot in the lower, ie, all under 13-18 inches must be released unharmed.
