Discover the inshore riches of The Sunshine State with South Florida Fishing Charters! Captain Johnny Stabile knows the waters of Lake Ida like the back of his hand and he makes it his business to take his customers where fish are.
Lake Ida is famous for its ample fishing opportunities, especially when it comes to Bass fishing. Both Largemouth and Sunshine Bass are abundant here and they’re always hungry. This is also the playground of Clown Knife Fish that are peculiar looking good fighters that can weigh up to 12 pounds. They pull hard and are very acrobatic, so it’s a joy getting them into the boat.
Not only does Capt. Johnny know all the tricks and hideouts of the fish, he has a reliable boat to take you to your prey. His 22’ Pathfinder is well-suited for different fishing conditions and can fit up to 4 people on board. The vessel sports excellent electronics that will show you where the fish are, a live bait well, and a trolling motor to keep you quiet while sneaking up to your catch.
You’ll be using premium Penn, Shimano, and Daiwa tackle for your angling endeavors, and your guide will also provide live bait and lures as necessary. If fly fishing is your game, make sure to mention it to Johnny in advance, and he’ll prepare the fly equipment for you. Of course, you’re welcome to bring your own gear if you prefer.
If you’d like to come with your kids, they should be at least 6 years old, and you should bring their favorite life jackets. To prepare for your Lake Ida exploration, you’ll also need a freshwater fishing license, drinks, food, and sunscreen.
