Thank you for your interest in my guide service. I will try to answer most of the common questions about fishing Lake Okeechobee with this page. I have only listed the better motels in the area. I also will try to give a general scope of what a guide trip consists of.
I offer professional instruction that is geared to any level of expertise, from the young beginner to the advanced angler. I do not use live bait, only artificial lures. I furnish all tackle and lures, a favorable feature for those of you arriving by air. These are the latest in pro type rods and reels. This way I know you will have the best equipment available that is matched to the type fishing we would be doing that day. I teach everyone young and old, how to correctly cast and use a bait caster, the choice of all professional anglers. You may feel free to bring your own gear if you wish. Above all the goal of the days fishing is to have fun, learn, and have a safe trip.
Quality lodging may be had at Best Western Motel, Roland Martin's Motel, Anglers Motel, or the Clewiston Inn. Their phone numbers are listed on the link above. There are several smaller motels in town, but their rates are very close to those that we have listed. I will be happy to assist anyone in locating suitable lodging. There is a really great place to eat in Clewiston. for fantastic Bar B Q and steaks try Sonny's Bar-B-Q (863-983-4171).
I will as a normal practice pick you up at your place of lodging each morning and return you to your doorstep that evening. You will need to call me the evening before your trip at (863) 983-8692 to confirm time and meeting place the first morning of your trip. There is a new Wal-Mart Super Center and marinas that have fishing licenses, which is about the only thing you will need to buy except maybe a sandwich or snacks. I furnish coffee and bottled water on board for you. I have a large cooler on board if you wish to take other beverages along. As I am marketing director for Roland Martin Productions, early reservations are a necessity in order for me to schedule your trip around our filming dates, appearances, and fishing the Bassmasters tournaments.
