Fort Myers Bass Fishing Charters - Largemouth and Peacock

Please take the time to watch video to learn more about our Fort Myers Bass Fishing Charters. You will be bass fishing on large private lakes in the Fort Myers area where there are bass over 10lbs, and bass from 6lbs to 8lbs are common.

It has taken us years to find the few lakes that meet these demanding requirements. We do not fish golf course ponds, and every lake we fish is at least 15 years old so they have trophy potential.  We have been working very hard for years planning the logistics for these trips.

Hours of fishing each lake to judge its trophy potential and overall bass population, to find the few that met our requirements.  We know you want to catch bass, and have a shot at a big bass.  Please take the time to watch this Peacock Bass video and PLEASE Subscribe to our YouTube Channel

Fort Myers Largemouth Bass Fishing

Our Fort Myers Bass fishing trips are 3 hours long with a 2 person maximum. See the boats section below to understand why only two can go. You DO NOT need a Florida freshwater fishing license, we take care of that. Time Of Day – We only take one trip per day, regardless of what month it is.

In the winter we start fishing from 9:30 – 11:30 am , the bass need to warm up in the sun for a couple of hours. In the summer the opposite is true, we need to be on the water at first light and fish until about 10am when it gets hot and the fish shut down. These are personalized bass fishing trips so we will have spoken to you several times and you will know exactly what the plan will be.

Fort Myers Bass Fishing Season

The calendar below gives you the times of the year the Fort Myers Bass fishing is best for each species. Peacock Bass are tropical fish and get very lethargic when the water temp drops below 80 degrees. However if we are in the middle of a winter warm spell with days over 80 and nights in the upper 60’s they can turn on immediately. All it takes is a rise in water temps of a degree or two and they will go on a feeding binge. So keep an eye on the weather forecast for the time you will be visiting, and you just might hit the perfect warm snap and be able to get in a Peacock trip. Call us if it looks like that might be happening.
