Something to consider.
Lake Okeechobee can be very overwhelming for the first time fishing especially without a guide.
Yes, I am gonna be there without a guide. I am leaning more toward fishing the lagoon since it has more species. Is there a particular stretch of shoreline that I should concentrate on?, how far should I cast and what kind of general flies to use?
I don't know much about inshore fishing, specially from the beach. Jack is a very elusive fish and probably impossible for a beginner with 8wt like me to catch.
