Florida’s Best Kept Secret: Catch Trophy Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Speckled Perch and more! Lake Okeechobee is nationally recognized as supporting high-quality largemouth bass and black crappie fisheries. The lake also supports a commercial fishery dominated by catfish species. However, the commercial fishery is also nationally unique in that a limited entry fishery (10 nets) exists for haul seine gear, which is permitted to legally harvest and sell bluegill and redear sunfish. Freshwater fishing retail sales in the five counties surrounding Lake Okeechobee were estimated at more than $117 million during 2000.” –
