Lake Kissimmee. Fifteen miles long, almost seven miles wide with a surface area of some 55 square miles – it’s a fresh water fishery full of largemouth bass, bluegill and black crappie. As the most remote of Florida’s ten largest acclaimed bass waters with a shoreline of expansive aquatic grasses and vegetation, it’s a lake that holds plenty of wall-hanger sized largemouth bass, making Lake Kissimmee is a bucket list bass fishing destination. Little wonder the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes is a regular stop on the Bassmaster and Florida Bass Federation tournament schedules. Whether you flip plastic baits or slow-troll golden shiners for spawning bass during the winter and spring, or rattle and jerk artificials in open-water during summer and fall, a trophy fish isn’t far from your stringer.
And when you throw a 10-incher back as being “tiny”, you’ll know the excitement that comes from stalking the hydrilla beds with your ultralight for crappie, also known as speckled perch. Called the Speckled Perch Capital of the world for a reason, Florida and the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes serves up the action with a generous daily bag limit of 25 fish. This is great sportfishing for anglers of all ages, and their families, who want to spend more time catchin’ than fishin’!
To help you get off the dock quickly and onto the water ready for professional grade fishing, our fishing lodge is located on a secluded section of the Kissimmee River, with immediate access to Lake Kissimmee and the entire chain of lakes. Marina services include boat rentals, half and full day fishing charters with our Camp Mack Pro Team fishing guides, and for those bringing along their watercraft, a four-slot boat ramp and slip rentals for overnight and extended stay visits. Be sure to visit our the Bait House to stock the baitwell and the Outfitter Store for any light tackle or other provisioning needs, and yes, a Florida fishing license if you need it!
