CAPT Steve Niemoeller was fantastic and put us on the bass right away in the morning. Great guide with good stories. My 13 year old son said the trip was one of the coolest things he has ever done.

Awesome as Always!!

Butler Chain of Lakes
★★★★★
I’ve gone with Captain Steve Niemoeller at least 10 times now and recently brought my wife and daughter. 80% of my family has fished with Steve. He’s more than a guide at this point, he is our friend and we look forward to seeing him a few times a year out on Lake Butler. It’s always so much fun to catch a lot of big bass with Steve. Cant recommend it enough. It is always the highlight of our trips to Florida!
