Freshwater Fishing Charters

Freshwater Largemouth Bass Trips

Florida has some of the best bass fishing waters in the world. Capt. Brady knows some of these waters very well. Lake Okeechobee, Lake Istokpoka, Lake Kissimmee, Toho and more are on his list of personally well known lakes. All of these lakes have produced double digit bass in the past years. Capt. Brady has been fishing these waters for over 35 years on a consistent basis. It’s during these trips on old time Florida waters that you will encounter Bald Eagles, Alligators, Ospreys, Turtles, Otters and Turkeys on the banks along with some Whitetail deer and wild boar. Some of these trips will take you back in time to how Florida used to be. This is truly a great way to relax and do a little fishing and take in all that Florida has to offer.

Please note: bass fishing trips only get run January and February.


We offer artificial bait trips:

For the novice angler with one on one professional help from Capt. Brady and for those who want to learn more about artificial bait fishing. Or for the artificial enthusiast that just wants to sharpen his or her skills. Get in the boat at daylight while it’s cool and the fish are all fired up. Fish while everyone else is catching bait. On an artificial bait trip, you are rewarded by knowing you fooled that fish into biting. It will sharpen your casting skills as well as your awareness of different fish species lurking on the flat. Don’t get me wrong, live bait is awesome but when the sun is coming up and your working your lure of choice across the flat and a big redfish hits it so hard that he almost jerks the rod out of your hand, this will make you get out of bed and do it again and again. Get more involved in fishing. Pick up an artificial bait and take a kid with you as this is a great way to sharpen their casting skills as well.

We offer sightseeing tours

For those who just want to relax on the water, maybe go to lunch, and just enjoy all that the Florida outdoors has to offer. During your day, you will experience many different types of wildlife from Manatees and Dolphins playing to many different species of wading birds, bald eagles and osprey preying on live fish. We assure you that you will have a memorable experience while on board with Captain Brady and Bass N Bay Charters.

Half and Full day trips

Half and full day trips are available during the months of January and February when the captain is over in central Florida at the lakes. All of his bass fishing trips are run in the months of January and February. If you would like to catch some bass and are down in the area any other time of the year, I suggest you try snook fishing with the captain. It’s very very similar and you catch a lot of them during the day.

January 1st through March 1st is when you will catch the biggest bass as they are feeding on shad schools, transitioning to go on the bed, and spawning. Sometimes I can catch you live bait. Sometimes you have to buy it. I am currently running specials on these 2 lakes for 2, 8 hour days of fishing for $1250 bucks.
