Fishing on Lake Okeechobee is a one-of-a-kind experience. The fishing is excellent, but that’s just the beginning. The lake is teeming with diverse wildlife, from alligators to wading birds; there are so many photo opportunities. Frequently, the action is fast and furious; anglers find it almost impossible to keep up with the pace at Lake Okeechobee. Lake Okeechobee is known for large bass ranging from 6 to 10 pounds and its substantial bass population. In a fully rigged Ranger Bass Boat, clients can either fish with golden shiners for that trophy bass or try their hand at artificial fishing lures on one of the most premier lakes in the country. A day of bass fishing is one of the best ways to experience Lake Okeechobee; it’s great for all ages and experience levels. We can also accommodate larger groups with multiple boats.
Captain Bob is well known for his Florida gator hunting, with over two decades of experience in the Lake Okeechobee area. Bob’s equipment has been fine-tuned over the years and proven again and again to be the best. Hunting gators according to Florida laws is a challenge; it is nothing like popular shows on TV depicting gator trappers. Florida laws allow recreational hunting with strict rules. The provisions disallow the use of guns, absolutely no exceptions. We use bang sticks to dispatch the animal. As your Florida gator hunting guide, we ensure that you stay within bounds and have an incredible experience on your trip. Captain Bob can provide gator tags, but he also guides clients who have obtained their own tags. Captain Bob highly recommends first-timers hire a guide and always think of safety. Whether you have tags or not, call Capt. Bob, you will get your trophy gator.
Lake Okeechobee is in the heart of the Atlantic flyway, with many species of ducks wintering all season. Capt. Bob scouts for ducks daily, ensuring that his clients have great success. Our early teal season starts in September and the primary season usually starts the Saturday before Thanksgiving every year. You can choose to hunt puddle ducks (Teal, Shovelers, Mottled Ducks, etc). or diving ducks (Ringnecks, Blue Bills, etc). Duck hunting is a fantastic way to see Lake Okeechobee and will be a memorable experience for even the most seasoned water fowl hunter.
For the adventurous, come and see the lake as no others. Cant. Bob takes custom airboat tours to remote areas where clients can view all sorts of marsh wild life, from wading birds to deer and hogs. Take a sunset ride, a one hour tour, or pack a lunch and go for the day. For a private custom tour contact Capt. Bob today.
