“The Fishing, The Sight Seeing, The Boating and The Catching…” Do you remember when your last fishing trip included all of these things, a simple reminder that could defined an entire summer or the greatest fishing vacation ever?
Lake Okeechobee is located in central southern Florida, north of the Florida Everglades and south of Orlando. Lake Okeechobee links the Atlantic and Gulf sides of Florida via the Port Mayaca Lock on the east side of the lake and the Moore Haven Lock on the lake’s western side. Drainage canals lower the lake and drain adjacent lands for farming. Agricultural activities around the Lake Okeechobee area include cattle ranching, dairy farming, and crop production of sugarcane, winter vegetables, citrus, sod, sweet corn and rice.
