Three Day Florida Fishing Mania

When traveling to Florida you must experience the endless opportunities to get in the outdoors. You can spend a Three Day Florida Fishing Mania with family or friends. South Florida offers some of the best fishing you can set your hook into. I never could have imagined the amount of memories that could be created with Captain Wayne Fellows.

Captain Wayne had the pleasure of fishing with Laura and her dad Jim. They were traveling from Chicago on vacation with no expectation to what was to come. Laura was surprising her dad on a Florida Fishing adventure of a lifetime over the course of three days.

Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing

The first day out was spent Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing. Lake Okeechobee is looking beautiful this time of year. Fall is the perfect time to soak in the scenery and explore new parts of the lake. You could be highly surprised at what you can experience on a lake this size.

Laura and Jim enjoyed the partly cloudy weather conditions with temperatures in the mid 90s. While waiting on the bite, they sat back and relaxed with a nice breeze in the air.  Great weather promotes a great bite this time of year as they put over 20 largemouth bass in the boat. They caught some quality ones too with the biggest weighing 5 pounds 4 ounces.

They both shared the passion for fishing but never got a chance to key in on artificial baits. Wild caught shiners were the most effective technique to catch largemouth bass on Lake Okeechobee. It is also very exciting since you never know when you are going to land that fish you have been dreaming of.

Fort Lauderdale Offshore Fishing

Captain Wayne adventured out to something different on their second day. Fort Lauderdale Offshore Fishing for Mahi Mahi or Dolphin was something that was always fascinating to Laura and Jim. There is nothing like cruising off the shores of the beach and into an unpredictable day out in the ocean.

We had a window of great weather for most of the day with storms expected for the afternoon. The seas were at 2 to 4 foot most of the day which wasn’t a problem for catching fish.

Laura and Jim really wanted to catch this delicious fish that they haven’t gotten the chance to do before. We made it happen with a slow start catching non-keepers. Being patient is the game while you are Florida Fishing and we finally connected with the keeper we were waiting for.

It was not long after that one keeper that they got to experience something they would never forget. Two more hits and fish started a Mania that was highly unexpected. We came across a school of Mahi that rewarded us with 40 Mahi in the boat. It is always good to preserve the fishery so we only kept 14 of them and released the rest.

After an experience like that their arms were very tired and their faces were sore from the amount of laughs and smiles. They had dinner for multiple nights and they called it a day.

Florida Peacock Bass Fishing

On their final day with Captain Wayne was something they wanted to check off their bucket list for a long time. Peacock bass has always been the species of bass that they have wanted to catch. Lake Ida is the perfect location to catch a variety of the exotic species, especially your first peacock bass.

It was looking like a great day again with beautiful weather for another amazing fishing trip. The mostly sunny conditions promoted excellent fishing. A mix of 25 peacock and largemouth bass were caught along with mayan cichlids. They were excited to catch the quality peacock bass they did.

One of the many things people love about peacock bass fishing is the fight they put up. You could never imagine the strength they have when they are on the end of your line. Laura and Jim thoroughly enjoyed catching their first peacock bass.

It was truly an honor and my pleasure to provide Jim a gift from Laura that they will never forget. I am looking forward to the next time they return to catch more of these incredible species here in Florida.

If you are looking for a memorable fishing adventure that will provide you stories for a lifetime, do not look further than the great state of Florida. iOutdoor can provide all that you need to enjoy a great day out on the water with the ones that are important to you.

I know next time I am visiting South Florida and Fort Lauderdale, I will be chasing all the species I can from salt to fresh water!

Customer Fishing TripAdvisor Review

“Can’t begin to say enough good things about my experience with my guide through I was taking my dad for a surprise father daughter Ft Lauderdale fishing trip to Florida to target a few different species on a few different locations. They were able to not only set me up with idea locations but also give me ideas on where to stay that would be centrally located. Also, they even got me a guide that was able to stay with us for the whole trip. Setting me up with Wayne and it was instantly like fishing with a long time friend!!!

Captain Wayne was easy to communicate with even before the trip via text ( my preference). As well, he was an absolute blast to fish with, but he was knowledgeable about each of the various locations but was able to not only take us freshwater, but also saltwater fishing. He was honest and never tried to upsell me on the day / time. In fact, he even suggested that because of the rough weather to be able to book half days and as long as he remained free we could “upgrade” to full days if the fishing and conditions were holding out.

It was the best thing I could have asked for in a guide and made the trip with my dad something we will never forget. There are not too many chances in life to make such awesome memories and I am so glad that he is a part of this one for us. We actually hit it off so well, we have become friends that keep in touch and I cannot wait to return and do some fishing with him this winter!! He will forever be the guide I use and will recommend to everyone I talk to!!!” – Laura
