Bass Fishing!

Captain Harry offers Bass fishing in and around world famous Lake Okeechobee and other nearby lakes. Specializing in flyfishing for BIG Bass, his knowledge and experience is extensive. Whether a beginner or a experienced angler, Capt. Harry can show you a unique fishing experience. Bait and tackle is provided (with exception of wild shiners). All you need to bring is your freshwater fishing license and a big smile! If you have a favorite rod and reel, you are welcome to bring it along. Capt. Harry recommends 20-25# line. Plastic worms and spinner baits are the local favorites. If using wild shiners, Capt. Harry prefers you use his equipment since "the big ones usually come out of heavy cover, and you will need to wrestle them."

"I don't just fish 8 hours! The fish don't punch a time clock and I don't either!"

For prime Bass fishing in Central Florida, don't delay! Dates are still available, but filling fast! Don't forget that this would also make a great Christmas or Father's Day gift! For more information or to book Capt. Harry, contact us at the Florida Captains' Page!
