Hello, I am Captain Bill Goudy Jr., 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 of having 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, 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 bait can be a fun way to bring fish to the boat. I can educate clients and anglers on using some of the best lures to catch bass across the United States.

Amazing experience!!

Bill Goudy
I brought my Dad down from Ohio to fish Headwaters with Captain Bill and Captain Mike. We had an amazing 3 days of fishing catching 4-5lb fish and even a 10lb monster!! Both Captains are friendly, knowledgeable, and a lot of fun to fish with. We will be repeat customers! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great trip!!
