FLW Rayovac Lake Okeechobee - 9th - Recap 
My pattern was outside grass lines on the main lake near the shoal and north shore areas...Day 1 I caught my two best fish on a Bruiser Baits 10" worm (junebug) rigged on 20lb P-Line 100% fluorocarbon with a TrokarTK130....this was fun!...old school worming! Day 2 the wind picked up and I switch the M-Pack Lures swim jig...sweet jig with an awesome new weed guard design. I rigged this on a Okuma Fishing USA 7.6 TCS Heavy with 65lb P-line X-Braid...all while targeting main lake grass points with good water clarity. (muddy water is no good on Okeechobee) Day 3 was a mess!! 30 mph winds made it very hard for me. I had to resort to catching them on various baits. Swim jig, flipping, swimbait and worms. A special thanks to Bob's Machine Shop and Power-Pole® Shallow Water Anchor I couldn't do it without these products....huge difference makers for me!
