Capt John Larsen is a full-time fishing guide in South Florida. Nothing compares to relaxing urban lake fishing in Southeast Florida. To get your slice of paradise, take a trip with Capt John. Join Capt. John on Lake Osborn, Lake Ida, Lake Okeechobee, or saltwater inshore fishing for a few hours and enjoy what these waters have to offer.

In freshwater, you will be spending your day out on a lake battling huge largemouth bass, peacock bass, or clown knife fish. This area is known for having some of the greatest bass fishing scenes in the state, so it’s a perfect opportunity to polish your fishing technique.

Hop aboard a 22’ Sterling boat that’s been newly built in 2020. She features the latest Garmin navigational electronics and she’s powered by a 250 HP Mercury 4-stroke engine. The boat has plenty of fishing space for 4 guests and also features a live bait tank, a cooler, and several fishing chairs.

Capt John Larsen will supply you with professional tournament equipment, including rods, reels, and lures. This equipment is great for light tackle fishing, but if you’re planning to catch fish on a fly, please bring your own.

Capt John also grew up in the Jupiter area and is very, very proficient in the area inshore fishing, especially the local snook.

You only need to purchase your fishing license and prepare some snacks and drinks of your choice. Don’t forget your sun protection to avoid getting sunburned.

Capt John offers incredible trips for trophy bass and summer trips for big snook, with a Captain who’s always ready to take you to your next catch. Welcome aboard!
