Bass Flats & Beyond offers a wide variety of trips targeting Largemouth Bass on Lake Okeechobee. Capt. John Larsen is a true Bass lover. His mission is to share these shallow waters with as many anglers as possible. Fish over 15 pounds have been caught in the lake before, and many anglers dedicate their lives to beating that record. Are you one of them?

Spend the day aboard a 2020 20’ Sterling flats boat. The boat lives and breathes Bass fishing, and is the perfect place to be when fishing Lake Okeechobee. She can cruise at an incredible 65 knots on the way to the best fishing spots. Once you get there, her Garmin electronics and quality tackle will have you bringing in fish that really put the “large” in Largemouth.

You have the choice of two, four, or eight-hour charters during your day on the lake. Two-hour “Run & Gun” trips are designed for anglers on the go, looking to fit great fishing into a busy schedule. If you have the time, changing up to a four-hour trip will let you get in even more hookups.

But serious anglers know there’s no rushing good fish - and Lake Okeechobee has some of the best! Eight-hour trips will see you fishing the area’s top spots to bring in what could we be the next state record!

All trips come with tackle and lures. Just bring along your fishing license, polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, and any food and drink you want for the day.

    A little more time on the water means you can make more casts. It only takes one good cast to catch that 10 pounder. The more casts you make, the more opportunities you have to catch that trophy largemouth.

My dad owned a dive shop in Jupiter. I got familiar with with the reefs and wrecks spearfishing when I was very young. Later on, at UCF, I was on the Bass fishing team and won some tournaments. I'd say that ever since then Bass fishing is my absolute favorite. I got intimately familiar with both freshwater and saltwater fishing in Florida.
