For almost two years I communicated off and on with BassOnline to relocate my family and start guiding full-time. After many lengthy discussion with BassOnline and my family we made the move with a three year plan. Were 1.5 years into it and it is going better than planned, I am building clients and have more customers than forecasted. The system works, it's proven and being part of the TEAM is incredible and very helpful. Capt Jimmy

We always say we will write reviews for places and never do. This one is much needed, we booked a 4 hour Bass trip in middle of August 2016, and ended up with an amazing guide, Capt. Mike Groshon. It started with a check in phone call the day before which was very informative and helpful. In the morning we met Capt. Mike and couldn't of been any happier with the turnout. He was professional yet personable and it truly exceeded our expectations. We had fished many times before but never on a bass boat. He was there to help when we needed and to stand by and watch when we doing what we already knew. Both of us learned so much from him. I can't thank him enough for being our guide and giving us an adventure we will never forget. Over a dozen fish were caught and we left feeling like our money was well spent. Highly recommend!

We went out with Capt Robert Miley hunting for Peacock Bass and had a blast. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. Capt Miley is very knowledgeable and had a lot of patience in dealing with a novice angler. The fishing and conversation was fun. Capt Miley and I fish some of the same waters in North Alabama. So not only did we catch Peacocks, I have some new tips on my home waters!

Left all the research up to my 14 year old son! Capt Leech was the best! We let him guide us and it was perfect! He called us to confirm 24 hours before the trip and he advised us on what we should be doing! It couldn't have been any better. Good man, great guide w/ a wealth of knowledge not just on Lake Toho but fishing! We spotted an amazing symbol of Freedom! Bald Eagle! Truly couldn't thank you him enough. We can't wait to come back! Challenge now is we're spoiled! We want fish like this at home in Virginia!

Wife and I had s blast fishing peacock bass with Capt. Brett. He had us on quality fish from start to end. Peacock are the prettiest fish to catch. Glad we returned all of them healthy as well. We are from Texas and don't have peacock bass in our lakes. Hopefully the peacock fisheries will be conserved. Thanks Brett.

My dad and I had a great time fishing with Capt Brett Isackson, on Thursday June 5th, out on the south eastern beginning of Lake Okeechobee. We each caught in the high teens, lost another 5 or so each. Dad caught a superb 10.5 lb Lake Okeechobee largemouth bass. "Brett really knew where to take us, and had the patience for us to ride out the lulls. The fish came back to the holding area he directed us to. Wish I could go more often!"

Fun and Conveint!

This is the 4th year Capt. John Leech has taken our group out on Lake Toho. Each year seems to get even better than the year before. Capt. John seems to know exactly where the fish are and gives us great tips on how to hook and land them. He's a true professional and treats his customers, the lake and the fish with respect. We're looking forward to next year!

My husband and I went on a half day trip with Capt. John Leech and was amazed at how many large bass we caught! John was the best guide we could have had. He was polite and very helpful. The average bass was 6lbs and my husband caught over an 8 lb fish! Next time we go to Florida we will definitely use him again! Highly recommended

Since my husband was 25 & going fishing with his father in Ohio, he has always wanted to go bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee. So for his 70th birthday, we booked a 6 hour charter thru Bass Online. We just took that trip today, 4/19/16, and it was a fabulous experience -- due to our outstanding guide, Capt. Rob Alfano!! We caught more than 15 bass between the 2 of us. But more importantly, we shared stories and time with a skilled fishing professional. Capt. Rob fulfilled my husband's lifelong dream. We both highly recommend him. Thanks again Capt. Rob.

My grandparents have a beautiful home here. I try to visit almost every other week. I don't know what the above review is saying. There are some giants here. Big ole bucket mouths!!Flipping seems to be key. But my buddy has pulled 9.4 lb time before last we were fishing on a spinner bait. But medlock jigs and creature baits/flipping craws on reeds and laydowns seem to pay out. Top water is great and so are swim baits. Absolutely love this lake! Prefer it over the big O. Not going to give out my spots but drive around. The lake is beautiful.

Four Brits took a half day off from theme park rides and had a great mornings fishing on Lake Toho, Florida in March 2016. We used the services of Captain Steve Niemoeller, who put us on the fish from the first cast. Total of about 26 bass and a couple of pike (thats the British version). One bass went 8 pounds 5 ozs. Never been bass fishing before, thoroughly enjoyable and made all the better by a great Captain who was a great help to us bass novices. Really recommend the both the fishing experience and Capt Steve.

Scheduling got messed up. Quide late then had to go all the way back to dock. Didn't start fishing till 4PM only 1 2.15lb fish in 21/2 hours, then got rained out. Will seek out new service next year......................................................................................................Management: "Jerry, we are sincerely sorry the trip did not work out as expected. After researching the trip, we noticed you waited to book the trip until a day before you wanted to go? This is never good to do, especially during peak season and spring break, all good services are sold out. We tried our hardest because you were a repeat customer to get you on the water and unfortunately the only availability was the late afternoon, which you agreed too...as for the weather that was just really bad timing and Florida afternoon showers. Next year give us a call earlier and we will make it up to you because we value your business!"

I fished with John Leech on February 7th and 12th and had a blast both days. It was just me and John the first day and the conditions were nasty (cold and windy), but we put a lot of big fish in the boat. The second day, my father-in-law and I both fished in nicer weather and John again put us on quality fish. John was a pleasure to fish with. He was good company. He changed depth, location, and presentation throughout the day to dial us in on the fish. And he gave us helpful, kind feedback on what we could do to connect with more fish.

Great Day !

My wife and I recently took a trip out on Lake Okeechobee with Capt Mark Rose and got everything we were looking for! Mark was extremely knowledgeable and informative on fishing tips, and he supported his side by putting us onto big fish! We hit several spots throughout the day hunting down the bass based off of current water changes, clarity, temps, etc...and it never failed that wherever he took us next had more bass. What made the trip even more enjoyable was the fact that Mark was very personable and my wife and I enjoyed his company. We look forward to our next trip with Mark and hopefully he can help us land that trophy 10+lbs bass!

Captain Dave Lauer made my first trip to lake Okeechobee the best. We hit a spot right away and we were on the fish for 6 hours. Catching 3 to 4 pounders almost all day was unbelievable. we were laughing all day. Dave is a very good guide and a great guy to just learn from, it had been 15 years since I last fished and he made me feel so comfortable. I am already planning a trip back in January. Thanks Dave for making my first trip memorable.

I want to thank Bassonline and Captain Jason Young for the memory of a lifetime last month. I called to inquire about a charter on Lake Okeechobee on Aug. 10th and the next day I was on the lake; as easy as that. Captain Jason Young was the best! Not only did he take my 8 y/o daughter and I to the "sweet spot" but was a great guy as well. And even more importantly, he paid extra attention to my daughter to help her haul in a "boat load" of largemouth bass! We had an awesome time and I recommend Captain Jason Young to anyone with or without children. Thanks again, Kevin and Mia

I have fished this lake for over 20years and have fished all my life thanks to my grandfather. This is by far the best lake I have fished from New Hampshire to Florida. I have fought a number of large mouth bass usually on a Charlie's purple worm that's all I use and most of the time I catch a bass within 10 minutes of fishing. The largest I have ever caught was 14 pounds of course I threw her back like I always do.

We knew our fishing experience on Okeechobee would be a memorable one, what we didn't know is just how an important role our guide would play. We had Dave Lauer and words can't describe just much Dave added to our experience. He knew where the fish were, how to catch them and how to get the most out of our trip. We're sure all the guides are good and know their stuff but can't imagine doing this again and not having Dave by our sides coaching us along. Thanks for the great memories Dave. Tracey and Darrin

I was with Captain Steve on Rodman reservoir and we had a fabulous two days of fishing. Steve found some good locations to fish. We did not spend a lot of idle time. Most importantly, I had my thirteen year old great nephew with me and Captain Steve could not have been more solicitous. IN the future, the boy will continue to play his video games like all teenagers but he will drop everything to fish with his great uncle and Captain Steve. Kudos to Captain Steve for helping insure that a kid becomes a fisherman for life!

Terrible Starke Lake

Have fished Stark lake ( only off the dock's) several times and I really wish i could get that time of my life back. Horrible horrible experience. Most everyone has no sense of decency, nor do they care. The lake seems to have been fished dry, not anything anytime i have went. Save yourself the time and if you really want to waste a day not catching anything by all means, you will have the same luck fishing in your local pool! Resp: Sorry to hear you had should a bad experience on Stark lake, it can be a lot better from a boat fishing deeper water...thanks for the review.

If you want French in North America, go to Québec or trek to Saint Pierre and Miquelon, two French territorial islands in the North Atlantic near Newfoundland. If, on the other hand, you want to visit Cuba without leaving the US, go to Miami. And if you also want, as I did, to experience fishing for the Amazon’s peacock bass, you can actually do that in South Florida.

Fantastic!!! Kip is a great guide! It was myself and my 8yr old son. Kip got us on the fish as soon as the sun as coming up. We caught a couple of small fish, then Lucas hooked up on the 10 pounder! I had to reel it in, but he got the hook set! Great times!!!! Thanks Kip!

Fished with Capt. Kelby Waldrip on March 5th out of Clewiston. He knew where bass would be & what they would bite. We used artificial lures & put over 40 bass in boat by 2 pm from 6 1/2 lbs down. Most in 3 lb range. My side still hurts from setting the hook. Looking forward to next trip! Capt Kelby made it a great day on the water.

Nice to see an article on young fisherman, I wish them luck. Time on the water with a child is never wasted. It's a time that they relax and ask questions that will last them lifetime.

I fished The Falls Canals with Roger on March 12, 2015. Roger was able to put me on fish in great numbers and quality the entire trip. I lost count of how many we put in the boat but it was easily 40 fish. I was able to boat several fish in the four to five pound range, one fish that was over six pounds and the highlight of our day was a 7 lber.

Saw the show today, 2/18/2015 and enjoyed the show and the tip on tying a snell knot but did not get any information about what lake they were fishing on. So many of fl lakes have that kind of vegetation that they all look similar. Would love to fish this lake sometime. Thanks Mike

My brother and I spent two full days on Okeechobee with Capt Dave Lauer. We had an absolute blast! Dave was very knowledgable, fun to fish with, and a great guy. We caught a ton of bass up to 8 pounds using live and artificial baits. I highly recommend booking a trip on Dave's boat. Already looking forward to another trip next year! Thanks for the good time Dave!

Trip Of A Lifetime

My family surprised me Christmas morning 2014 with a guided Bass Fishing trip on Lake Okeechobee with Captain Jason Young of the Bassonline.com team they found on the internet site. I made my way to the Lake and met Jason after we had picked up some shiners at the local bait shop. Our first hour was slow and we made a move from the first spot, but the second spot was hot. Within 5 minutes I caught a 7 lb Bass followed by a couple 5 and a couple 3 pounders. By 10 o'clock I had boated 23 pounds. When that bite died off, Jason navigated us to another spot and we flipped plastic jigs catching several 2 and 3 lb bass on the jigs. About 1:45 PM a severe storm system moved in and washed out our last two hours but I'd had so much fun and success that we agreed to call it a day. Jason was an excellent guide and a pleasure to fish with. I referred friends to him and plan on returning again to go after some more Big Bass. Thanks Captain Jason for a great trip and helping me catch the fish of a lifetime!

First off Tharp’s Camp no longer exists. This lake is a great fairy shallow lake yes has some spots that reach 20+ feet but for the most part the lake is around 10 feet deep, In this lake you can catch Pike, Large mouth bass, warmouth bass and multiple species of pan fish including crappie. you don't need a boat to have a good fishing experience here...

I cannot say enough good things about our trip. I had 3 days booked and took different members of the family every day. Most of them rarely fish and were quite inexperienced. The first day we caught 70-80 largemouth. What a day! The second day I took my wife and daughter. They're not the most experienced but Mark put us on some nice fish, and they both caught penty...

Growing up in Mulberry some of my fondest memories are when our family would go and camp about once a month for a long weekend and fish and hunt and just enjoy everything this place had to offer. It was a much different place in the late 60's. The roads were dirt and during the summer my dads Dodge Dart would get stuck often!! Great times and lake!

Our guide on Lake Okeechobee was Capt.Terry, what an incredible fishing trip it was for my Wife Jan and I,she caught the first fish if the day which was a 5 pounder and to finish the trip,Terry suggested we make a move, we did and the result was an 11pound Hawg!! We're from Ohio and hope to make Florida our home soon and because of the people in Clewiston. Our decision is made to move in the area! Thank you Capt Terry for a trip and fish of a lifetime!

Wanted to say thanks to Dave Lauer for taking my son and I fishing on Okeechobee. He is a top notch professional and made us feel right at home in his boat. He shared many stories with us about his career and family and we are blessed to have met him. When we come back to this area of the country I will be back to fish with him! He also knows he's welcome out towards north Texas and our home anytime! If you are looking into a fishing trip on Okeechobee lake this is the man to go to. Highly Recommended by an avid bass fisherman!!! Thanks Dave, Brad & Jordan

I know Capt. Dave will send in a more detailed report.

Dave is not only a top of the line fishing captain with the knowledge and experience to keep us on fish all day long.

My daughter and I went out on Lake Osborne with Captain Dave Sunday 8/27. What a great day of fishing. We were catching peacock bass from the first few casts to the last. We stopped counting after the first hour, but probably caught over 30. I landed one over 4 pounds. Looking for a fun day with plenty of bass, take a day out with Captain Dave.

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...

Tony provided me with a very exciting and fulfilled day of fishing even though the bite started off pretty slow due to a cool morning. Capt. Tony never gave up on the search to find fish until he put me on them. The Peacock Trip is a definite must for all anglers and with the professionalism of Capt. Tony I would highly recommend his services...!
