Service Areas:


Hello, I am Captain Bill Goudy Jr. and I am a licensed master captain. I was born in Southeast Iowa and raised on the Mississippi River. I’ve been fishing ever since I was a little kid. I caught the bass fishing bug early in life. When I was younger, I found an old Johnson spoon in my father’s tackle box tied it on, and caught a Bass. Instantly hooked on fishing, my pursuit to have a career in it was inevitable. Living on the river where his family owned a campground and bait shop he has been putting people on fish for years. He has been married for 21 years and is a father of 4 and grandfather of 1. He moved to Florida to pursue his dream of being a full-time fishing guide.  Captain Bill will help get you on some beautiful trophy largemouth bass on your trip. The Winter Haven Chain of Lakes, Lake Toho, Lake Kissimmee, and the NEW Fellsmere lake and other surrounding Central Florida bass fisheries are his kingdom, and he’s ready to show you around.

Share My Techniques

My preferred style of fishing for Largemouth Bass here in Central Florida is with live bait. It is the most successful method to land quality largemouth bass all trip long. Every month of the year, you can utilize this bait to help land fish. Also, it is perfect for anglers of all ages to get addicted to the action. Additionally, I love to catch bass with artificial baits. Artificial baits can be a fun way to bring fish to the boat. I can educate clients and anglers on how to use some of the best lures to catch bass all across the United States.

Bucket list fulfilled

Bill Goudy
Captain Bill is awesome! One of the things on my bucket list was to catch a bass over 10 pounds. The first day out with Bill and the mission was completed. 10 lbs. 11 oz. Also caught an 8, a 6 and many in the 2 to 5 pound range. Bill knew right where to go and how to catch fish.

Really big Bass

Bill Goudy
Capt. Bill is the absolute best. Catching fish steadily for 8 hours. Knows where the honey holes are for the really big Bass. Will definitely use Capt. Bill again. Great with experienced anglers and the beginner angler. If you are on his boat you are catching fish. Look no further than to Captain Bill Goudy Jr. Proof is in the picture!!

caught personal best

Bill Goudy
Amazing day on the water!! Captain Bill put us on the most fish we have ever caught in a day and all 3 of us caught personal best. We caught 20-25 bass and about a third of them were 4lbs or larger. I would highly recommend Captain Bill to anyone looking to get out on the water. Great service all around!

An old friend

Bill Goudy
My experience with Captain Bill Gouda JR. was amazing. Excellent guide. Put me on the fish and we caught them. He was like an old friend. Great personality. I was very comfortable fishing with him. I have referred him to many already and I hope to fish with him again in March when I’m in Florida again. I fish regularly so we had much to talk about. I will call him first from now on. Again, great guide and a great guy. Al Chaffin

Knew exactly where to go!

Bill Goudy
It was by far the most successful fishing trip that I have ever experienced and I have been fishing for 60 years. Captain Bill knew exactly where to go, and how to present the bait to bring in the fish. My buddy and I caught close to 35 nice Largemouth in 2 1/2 hours. We chartered for 4 hours but ran out of bait. Then we cast for the remainder of our charter and continued to bring them in. They were all in the 3 -6 pound range. Thanks, Captain Bill. You are amazing

Bragging rights

Bill Goudy
Capt Bill Goudy Jr is one of the Bass On Line Fishing Guides and If you want to check off an item on your bucket list, if you want bragging rights, if for once in your life you can be the person on the pedestal, then reserve Capt Bill Goudy Jr now. Within 7 minutes of arriving at his private spot, at Headwaters Lake, Fellsmere, Fl. we had our first fish. From there on it went UPHILL. Included in the 37 Bass that we caught was a 7.4 lb and a 5.6 lb once in a lifetime for me, Trophy Bass. Thank you, Capt Bill Goudy Jr
