As you may have guessed from the name, Okeechobee Guide Service is located on the largest freshwater lake in Florida. As well as being famous for its size, it’s also home to a huge and diverse Bass population! Come aboard and get ready to cast your line in these calm, fish-filled waters.
Captain Mike Jones will be your guide for the day. With over 15 years of experience running charters on the lake, he has unrivaled knowledge of these waters and hopes to make each trip a true pleasure for every guest. He runs trips targeting the different species of Bass that live here, as well as longer trips along the lake’s saline backwaters.
Capt. Mike welcomes you aboard his 20’ Ranger Trition bass boat – naturally, she’s the most suitable boat to explore these waters from! She can accommodate up to 3 guests. Powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine, she has a maximum cruising speed of 60 knots, which will definitely get some wind in your hair. The vessel is equipped with all the necessary navigational and safety equipment, too.
You’ll be targeting the most popular fish in the region: Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass. The lake is abundant with them, and they’re a real gem not only to reel in but serve as tasty table fare! Along the backwaters, you’ll go after Bonefish, Redfish, Snook, and Speckled Trout, which provide excellent game and food qualities. You’ll be mainly spin casting, but fly fishing equipment is available for the more advanced among you.
As well as an amazing day of fishing, you’ll get to learn plenty about the region’s wildlife from the knowledgable Capt. Mike. Rods, reels, tackle, and lures are included in the price, and you can purchase live bait at a cost of $20 a dozen. With drinks offered on board, just bring some snacks for your trip, as well as a fishing license.
A trip with Okeechobee Guide Service is something you’ll remember for a lifetime. Come once and you’ll definitely be back!
