Jul 11, 2014 by Larry D

This was about my 14th fishing trip to Florida. I have fished Okeechobee several times, the phosphate pits near Tampa, and one trip prior to his to Toho. I can honestly say that this was the best fishing trip that I have ever been on. I have caught large fish in the past or caught quantity fish on trips but never have I been on a trip where both occurred. We were catching bass when no one else around us was….this can only be attributed to the fact that Captain John Leech knew where and how to get us on fish.
This was to be a special trip with my uncle and his 14 year old grandson. It was to be a reward for a young man working hard to make good grades and who loves to fish. This was his first Florida fishing trip and as much as he has talked about it , I am sure it will not be his last. He is still talking about the trip, as well as his grandpa and myself are, days later.
Though we did catch the fish and the trip was a great success, none of it would have been possible without all the help from Lori in reservations, she is awesome to work with, and Captain John who knew where to put us to optimize our opportunity to catch fish and who had to put up with all our mistakes in catching fish. So to both of them, the three of us send our heartfelt thanks for an unforgettable trip.

To anyone reading this and wondering which pro service to go with, use Bass Online, you will not regret it.

Response: Larry, thank you so much for the 5* review and your business!
