Central Florida Fishing Guide Reviews

Caught Bass in a Cold Front

central
★★★★★
Capt. Bill knows his stuff. I was in Florida in Dec ‘22 and booked a trip with him. The entire souther US was blanketed by an extreme cold snap and it was in low 30’s the day of the trip. Capt Bill took me to Headwater’s Lake and we still caught them. Had 40 fish that morning with two over 5lbs and 2 over 4lbs. You definitely need to book a trip with Capt Bill because you can catch nice bass in any conditions.

Lake Toho Dec 29

central
★★★★★
Not only did Capt. Leech put me on multiple big fish, he was extremely kind, respectful, and knowledgeable. I think of myself as a fairly experienced Angler, but John taught me things that I had never even thought of. For example, while setting the hook, he was explaining to me the different angles in which you can do it, and the difference in hook placement in the fishes mouth it will cause. Being from up north, I had not done much shallow water fishing. Capt. Leech introduced me to the differences in techniques and how important it was to adjust. The knowledge he bestowed upon me in this fishing trip helped me win an MLF College event last Spring on Clear Lake, CA. The shallow water fishing I practiced on Lake Toho transferred over tremendously and played a big role in my victory. If you want to not only be put on massive Florida Largemouth Bass, but wish to become a better angler, I highly suggest you book a trip with Captain John Leech.

These guys know it!

Hat’s off to Bass Online and especially Captain Reno for making a memorable experience that I and my son will never forget Captain Reno he’s a gem of a guy! We had a great time and caught a lot of nice fish. All of the fish we caught were really nice size and healthy. I have never caught that many fish before on one trip, but that’s the difference when you have a pro guiding you….these guys know where the lunkers are and how to get them on the boat. If you are hesitant about taking a guided trip don’t be, it was definitely worth it and I will do it again next time I’m in Florida.
