Largemouth Bass and Black Crappie Fishing Charters

Lake Okeechobee & Central South Florida

We off Largemouth Bass and Black Crappie fishing Charters on Lake Okeechobee and several other fine fisheries. The “Big O” is so big it’s sometimes called Florida’s “inland sea.” But most of the bass fishing takes place from the edge of the vegetation lines closer to shore. Black Crappie fishing (speckled perch or speck) as they are called throughout the State of Florida are the most sought after panfish on Lake Okeechobee The biggest bass fish are caught flipping heavy cover from January through early April. Later in the spring, it’s not uncommon for anglers to release more than 50 fish per day, as the schoolies gang up. While the Florida crappie is often caught during the summer season, the best fishing is from from late fall to early spring.

Lake Istokpoga – Located just north of Lake Placid, this shallow, weedy lake has been producing a bunch of lunkers recorded in the state’s TrophyCatch program. The fishing will get better and better into spring. Frog patterns, plastic worms fished slowly, and Skinny Dippers are real fish finders. A solid flipping stick is also a must.

Kissimmee Chain of Lakes Area – This area spans more than 21,000 acres and includes numerous lakes along the Kissimmee/Okeechobee watershed. They include legendary Lake Kissimmee, Lake Toho and Lake Marion. The northern waters are close to Orlando. The watershed’s southern shallows tend to draw bedding fish first, by the end of January. Many anglers opt to stay in and around Kissimmee, St. Cloud or Haines City. These lakes are shallow and weedy, so bring rods loaded with heavy braided line. Jigs, worms and Skinny Dipper-type baits work well.

Stick Marsh – The St. Johns Water Management Area (SJWMA), known to most anglers as the Farm 13/Stick Marsh, is a 6,500-acre impoundment located along the east coast of central Florida in northwest Indian River County. Water depths range from 4 to 8 feet. Closest towns/cities are Melbourne, Palm Bay, Vero Beach, Sebastian and Fellsmere. No gas, food or bait available on site. Popular sportfish include largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, black crappie and several catfish species. This water body is noted for its excellent bass fishing due to the special no harvest regulation on largemouth bass. The SJWMA is one of the top 10 trophy bass spots in the state.

Join Captain Skeeter for a Lake Okeechobee freshwater fishing adventure with your family or friends together for an awesome day of crappie fishing on Lake Okeechobee. Lake Okeechobee comprises a 730-square-mile area and is the second-largest natural lake in the country, containing more than a trillion gallons of water.

Most fishing takes place along the southeast, west and north areas of the lake within a mile or so of the shoreline. Look for plants like hyacinths, hydrilla and others, where big bass lurk to prey on shiners, bluegills and other food sources. Crappie will eat frogs, crickets, worms, grasshoppers and almost any type of fish smaller than itself. Soft plastic presentations of those baits do very well.

Bag limit for crappie (speckled perch) is 25 per person per day. Possession limit is two days’ bag limit per each licensed angler.
