Central Florida Fishing Guide Reviews

waited a lifetime for this!!!

WAITED 47 YEARS TO GO TROPHY FLORIDA LARGEMOUTH FISHING! And Captain John Leech made the wait well worth. I caught 7 ln 9 once on the first cast. Not kidding at all. Caught large bass the entire trip. But just as important was the service I got from Captain John. It was like fishing with an old friend . I will be back with my boys. This is a trip of a lifetime. Learned more in 2 days fishing with Captain John than I have in 40 years prior. Do not hesitate to book a trip with this man !!! I also never leave reviews for anything but this trip and guide deserves it!!!
