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

Fishing Lake Okeechobee on pontoon boats provides the same high probability of success as if you were in a bass boat or flats boat.

Great time with Great fish!

I’m not sure if I picked the right activity option, but we spent four hours on the water in Lake Okeechobee with Captain and Larry Crossman. Captain Crossman was extremely knowledgeable of the area and made our fishing experience a blast! We will definitely be back and we will definitely be requesting him!
