Discover Lake Okeechobee in a BIG WAY!

lakeinfohead258.pngLake Okeechobee offers fantastic fishing year round for trophy bass, and there is of course no better place to be in the middle of winter than fishing for huge largemouth bass on the beautiful warm waters of Lake Okeechobee. Typically, artificial bait is used here but shiner fishing is a favorite for many anglers. The guide fees are the same but shiners are extra if that is how you would like to fish. As always, the choice is yours.

Fish Like the Pros

We will be fishing from a Ranger Z520C powered by Evinrude Outboards, with top of the line rods and reels furnished by Lew's. Left and right-handed tackle is always available. If your trip is using artificial bait, we have everything we might need for the day including some of the latest and greatest in lures, hooks, lines, and more. There is no need for you to bring any of your own gear. That said, you may have a rod and reel you enjoy fishing with, and if so please feel free to bring it along. It's your trip and we want it to be the best guide trip you can have. Additionally, an ice chest is always on board, ready for your snacks and drinks of choice. As with any natural place, weather can be unpredictable on the water, so you may also consider bringing a jacket for those cool early morning starts, possibly a rain suit of sudden showers, and sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen for that beautiful sunshine. Don't forget your camera as well. A photo of you with your trophy catch, printed on premium photo paper, can be waiting for you at the end of the day upon request.


A Record of Success and Safety

Remember, you are not booking a trip with just any guide; you will be on the water with one of the country's top professional fishermen with over 27 years on the tournament trail, over 40 years of fishing on Lake Lanier and over 25 years fishing Lake Okeechobee. Tom is a professional with an incredible understanding of the environment, as well as a USCG licensed captain so you don't have to worry about putting your best client, kids, parents, and friends in my boat for a fantastic day fishing.
