Lake Okeechobee—Florida’s inland sea of freshwater, grass, and largemouth bass. This week, Das Boat dives deep into Florida’s watery heart with a Candian and a Californian. The host of our own Anchored podcast, April Vokey, meets up with big bass expert Oliver Ngy and they try to figure out one of the most notoriously complex and rewarding bass fisheries in the country. Along the way, they discuss the iconography of Okeechobee, America’s obsession with bass, glitter boats, and the founders of Captains for Clean Water explain what’s being done about Florida’s water quality problems.
In recognition of this episode, along with last week’s episode that both take place in Florida, MeatEater has teamed up with Captains for Clean Water to design a collab shirt that supports the awful state of Florida’s water crisis. Help us support this important cause by shopping the shirt here:
