About Capt. Bob

Capt. Bob Stafford

As well as being a second generation hunting and fishing guide I am also a Florida native. I was born and raised in south Florida and grew up fishing and hunting with my best friend – my dad. My dad has since passed away but not before teaching me to be a successful sportsman and also how to be a wise steward of our natural resources. If I’m not fishing or hunting you will find me on my airboat riding and looking at the constantly changing conditions. For over 30 years the Lake Okeechobee and everglades region has been my home.

As I grew older I started developing my skills as a competitive angler and became quite successful winning club tournaments, Bass weekend series, WalMart BFL, HT3 pro series etc. 20 years of running a bass boat on Lake Okeechobee and fishing at a competitive level has given me wealth of knowledge of not only fishing areas around the lake but also navigation. To this day I am a fierce competitor on a local scale even when it comes to guiding.

When it comes to guiding whether we are fishing or hunting my goal is for you to be 110% satisfied.

I have been guiding part time for bass, gators and ducks since 1995 but converted to full time in 2007. I am fully insured and licensed USCG approved captain.

If you are contemplating coming to Lake Okeechobee for bass, gators or ducks I hope you would give me the chance to be your guide.

Thanks,
Capt. Bob
