Service Areas:


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 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!

Great day fishing!

John Larsen
Boat, Captain and fishing was first class! My son, best friend and I recently did a trip with Captain John. Caught over 100 fish and 90 were Peacock Bass! Very enjoyable day had by all. Not only was John knowledgeable, he was a great guy to spend a day fishing with.

Captain Larsen

John Larsen
Captain Larsen was outstanding, he put us on fish all day. He was patient with us and explained what we were trying to do. Once we took his advice we began putting fish in the boat. I highly recommend Captain Larsen for your south Florida fishing adventure.

I am an experienced angler, but he offered me tips and taught me new techniques that I will definitely use/apply. I would definitely recommend Captain John Larsen to anyone looking for a great fishing experience.
