Dear Bass Online,
I’m an avid Bass angler, own a bass boat and fish 2-3x a week. My intentions on booking a trip to Lake Okeechobee this winter were to #1 have a memorable experience, #2 learn new techniques and #3 hopefully land a new PB (Personal Best) at one of the ‘hottest’ lakes in the country! Well fortunately all 3 expectations were met and exceeded as my father and I had a memory filled and exciting 2 days with Captain Kelly Waldrip. His knowledge and expertise on the lake showed as he found us quite a few honey holes where we would pull one after another bass out of. It seemed like the spots he took us to kept replenishing and the fish would not stop biting!
My dad was able to land his biggest largemouth bass ever at 7.0 lbs and also stuck a 6.4 and several 4 pound class fish! He was using live shiners which was like throwing out a magic bait because every cast the fish would just destroy it! I myself used artificial and even though the bite was a little slow after a major cold front, Kelby was still able to get me on fish and I even stuck a monster 8+ pounder, but unfortunately lost her at the boat!
All in all, this was an experience of a lifetime and I would recommend Captain Kelby Waldrip to anyone looking to have a fun-filled day, learn new techniques, be assured of catching fish and have a fishing trip with lasting memories.
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of fishing with Capt.Mark Shepard. Although we have fished with him several times in the past, it just never ceases to amaze us of how much of gentleman he truly is. As far as his guide ability all I can say is, he simply “the best professional guide” that the good Lord has made…if you want a great time fishing and catching lots of big quality bass Capt. Mark Shepard and bassonline are the folks to be with.
