Bass Whisper Guide Lake–Okeechobee

9 reviews
In demand!

Lake Okeechobee Bass Whisper Guide is referred to as God’s gift to Bass anglers. Here is why. JP Mckay has been fishing this area since 1982 which makes for over 30 consecutive years on the waters of Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades. He has been a tournament angler for 27 of those years, taking home over 100 victories and some great fish!

Captain JP is a positive person who likes sharing his knowledge with his guests. He knows the feeding patterns, the spawning patterns, the seasons, and the fish. And enjoys nothing more than seeing anglers giddy with excitement over catching their biggest Bass. Or their first Bass. Or big quantities of Bass - 40 to 50 a day is a norm on Lake Okeechobee.

Largemouth Bass is a fish with good game and qualities, which is why it’s famously fished for throughout the country. It has tournaments dedicated to it and is available year round. The beautifully colored Peacock Bass attracts a lot of attention from anglers for two reasons: it’s fun to catch and photographs better than almost any freshwater fish! Panfish are also available in this area and are always fun for kids to catch due to their size.

Lake Okeechobee Bass Whisper Guide provides all the fishing gear you need including an assortment of Shimano spinning rods and reels, top quality bait casters, and lures. If live baiting is your thing, you can purchase Shiners prior to the trip. Native Shiners go for $10 a dozen, whereas Wild Golden Shiners can cost you $20 for a dozen.

Fishing is done aboard JP’s 21’ Storm Bass boat built in 2009 with a capacity for two guests. The speedy vessel is powered by a 250 HP Mercury Pro XS engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots.It features a fishfinder, a livewell, an icebox, and a wireless trolling motor.

So, if you want to catch indecent amounts of Bass and have the best time doing it, Lake Okeechobee Bass Whisper Guide is a great choice for you! Just make sure you bring your camera to capture the moments with JP forever!

JP has been guiding for over 30 years, as well as catching trophy fish and winning tournaments for more than 27 years. He is an extremely pleasant and interesting person with tons of fishing and tournament tales to tell, so when you go out on your trip, pay close attention to what he's saying!

He says, "There is nothing quite like seeing a grandfather catch his biggest Bass or a grandson catch his very first Bass!"
