Lake Okeechobee is literally on fire! South Florida Water Management does controlled burns to manage the water quality. We took some pretty awesome drone footage of the fires!

@northCALIFA The season's barely started and I must've pulled about 500 miles of line from the water, off the bank, from trees and shrubs near the bank of my fishery already. If I catch anyone leaving a giant bird-nest of line on the bank, I'm throwing them in and snapping their rods...promise.

Id rather see a burn than the chemicals. My dad and I saw about 100 alligators killed due to sprays and they were belly up down on the bottom where the motor were scrapping them. It was a very bad situation and was a sad thing that could've been handled differently. Im the same age as you are and I was 10 at the time. It happened at south Loxahatchee off lox rd on 441. Thank you for communicating like you do with these politicans had you didnt they would have no idea what to do. I now fish the north end of the lake. Thanks again for helping out us Bass fisherman in Florida and saltwater fisherman as well. I know you and your family caught a lot of heck in the most recent years. Take care and ask your dad if he remembers the kelly green boat that use to come through the store a lot it was a ztriker (striker).

Out on lake Marion (Santee Cooper) in SC there are multiple tournaments almost every week... Stop doing pro type weigh-ins for small tournaments...I enjoy watching weigh-ins and I think they're great for pro level events, but for an the smaller clubs and trails that non pros fish in I'd rather see MLF style weigh ins...even if it stays 5 fish limit just weigh the fish and put it back... Less disturbance to bedding fish

Hi Scott. Have been fishing Big O since I was 2 years old. The southside, northside, east and westside. My dad and I would fish together and would catch some big Bass. Your dad in fact when he would see my dads boat he would stop and say hello just like we would when we fished Clewiston we would stop in to say hello.

I was fishing Lake Jackson last week and saw an airboat spraying the lily pads, made me sad to see them putting all those chemicals in the water :(

I would not be surprised if the company doing the spraying is from North Alabama. There's a company near me and Guntersville Alabama that does weed control spraying. They spend weeks at a time down on the lakes in Florida and surrounding states lakes. it's crazy how much spraying they do.

I learned about controlled burning in the Midwest. Burning is a natural cycle and helps reintroduce nutrients into the soil, improve habitats by decongesting thatch, germinating seeds, etc.. I didn’t know it also helps stabilize our lakes! Pretty cool stuff.

Rugged Fish thank you for this comment! Former firefighter with a strong aviation background and my first thought was the same thing.

I wish the federal refuge I fish here in southwest Louisiana would burn and manage our impoundment like that. Our fishery is VERY similar to okeechobee but they only "manage" for waterfowl. You'd be shocked the donkeys caught here. It opens back up for fishing march 15 and I'm back at it.

Natural wildfires happen all the time. Burning organic materials such as wood and vegetation have no long term impacts on the environment. Due to the urbanization of Florida, the big O has been impacted and needs human intervention to keep it as natural as it was before all the cities were put in north of the lake. These people are experts in their field trying to preserve a natural resource. The only other option is to tear all the cities down and you Surely don’t expect that right?

I just recently bought a place on Okeechobee, in the J&S canal. In the five years I’ve been coming down to fish, I have seen the lake change for the worse. I hope this burn helps bring my bucket list lake back to life. I’m sick of fishing in mud and seeing dead vegetation from spray. THANK YOU FOR THE VIDEO AND THE EXPLANATION. I learned something today.

You guys might want to look into a hexacopter instead of a quadcopter yuneec typhoon H makes a good one. What the quadcopter if you lose one motor one prop or an ESC it comes down wherever it's at a hexacopter has six motors you can lose up to two motors the computer takes over turns it into a quadcopter and can return home check out my Facebook page Tim's drones I've built over 200

Burning puts nitrogen back into the soil and nitrogen is one of the best building blocks of life for all plants, mammals, aquatics, all the way down the food chain. Around here it's a common practice to put any kind of wood like scraps from tree limbs, yard cleanup, leaves, and even firewood on top of your garden spot burn it down, then turn the ash under with the tiller. Grows Awesome tomatoes and literally anything you plant in that garden will do much better. Nature has been burning itself since the beginning of time. Proof: Set a small patch of your yard on fire then put it out, wait for rain and see how much greener that patch of grass is when the grass starts growing.
