Pontoon boats are much sturdier and roomier than other standard fishing boats on Okeechobee, such as flats boats, Jon boats, or bass boats. Pontoon boats don’t rock as much, have sides making it safer for young kids, and have much more sitting areas for those looking for a relaxing experience. Because of the excess floor space and set up of pontoon boats, accommodating those in a wheelchair or any handicap is no problem. Pontoon boats are higher up and more level with the dock, making boarding much easier as well. Bass boats are much lower and require more balance from a person boarding. Fishing charters on pontoon boats are undoubtedly the best option for young kids, the elderly, and handicapped situations.

Fishing Quality From Pontoon Boats

Your fishing guide knows all the best spots, so everyone has a shot at catching trophy bass regardless of which side of the boat you are on.

Lake Okeechobee Reviews

Catching fish with Mark Rose

When we arrived, we heard people coming to shore saying , “the water is murky”, “they’re not biting today” , “only caught one or two”. When we met up with Captain Mark, he prepared us to have patience. Mark brought us to clear water and put us on the fish. We caught at least 15 fish, had some laughs, and learned a bit about the lake and a lot about fishing with artificial.Would certainly recommend ! Very cool experience! Remember it’s Lake Okeechobee, be humble.

Great Day Fishing!

My brother and I went out for a 6 hour trip with Capt. Mark Rose on Friday, 2/3/23. Capt. Mark is a great and knowledgeable Capt. and his new boat rides like a "Cadillac" over the water and is a beauty with lots of room to move about and loads of places to pick a spot to fish from. We motored over in his new "Cadillac" to some really great areas on the South side of Lake Okeechobee. Within 5 minutes, we had bass in the boat on both a top popper and dancing fluke. That scenario continued for a few hours. When the fog rolled in, it felt surreal. So peaceful, quiet and relaxing. When the bite slowed down, Capt. Mark moved us to another secluded area where we again began to catch again. All in all it was a beautiful day on the lake and Capt. Mark was very hospitable, patient and friendly. I asked my brother if he wanted to say anything in this review and he replied "My brother and I went out with Capt. Mark Rose and we loved him". Great job Capt.! It was a beautiful day. Thank you so much. See you next time.
