Homegrown Fishing Charters

Kissimmee, FL, United States
Kissimmee FL, United States

Take a relaxing trip out on Florida’s inland waterways to fish for Largemouth Bass and Crappie, or throw yourself into learning the ropes of tournament preparation with competitive local angler Colby Flinn. With over ten years’ experience on Florida’s lakes, Captain Colby will make sure you have a great day out on the lake, whatever you are hoping to get out of your trip.

You will be fishing aboard a 21 ft Stratos Bass boat that has been designed to cover the water quickly and smoothly. In fact, its 225 HP Mercury Optimax engine powers the boat at speeds of up to 70 mph, so you will be able to cover large bodies of water in no time. The boat features a Power-pole anchoring system, a live bait tank, an ice box, and seating for up to three anglers.

Your trip will take place on Florida’s “inland sea”, Lake Okeechobee. This huge body of water is the seventh largest lake in the United States, and it is the perfect spot for a relaxing day out on the water targeting Largemouth Bass and Crappie. Captain Colby will guide you round skillfully and introduce you to his tried and tested fishing tactics throughout your trip.

Homegrown Fishing also runs saltwater fishing trips aboard a 23 ft Parker boat. Click on the captain’s profile below to find out more.
