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.

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.

Great day on Lake Toho!

Captain Bill was an awesome guide! Super easy going and personable, and tailored the whole experience to exactly the way I wanted to fish. Caught largemouth, gar, and pickerel. Even got visits from a gator and an osprey! All in all a great day, can’t wait to do it again. Thanks Capt Bill!!

Great Capt. - BIG FISH !!!

Bill Goudy
Fished with my buddy, Rick Payne from Indiana, using Live Shiners and Artificial baits. Very windy day but Capt. Bill came thru and got it done. Rick caught his personal best 10lbs. 110z. We caught over 35 fish, smallest was 2 lbs. Lost a couple more fish that we guessed were in the double digit weight. We would definitely recommend Capt. Bill Goudy !!!!

We fished with Capt. Bill yesterday. The conditions were very windy and the bite was off. That didn’t stop Bill from finding fish and putting us on some very good fish. He worked hard and kept his vey position attitude. We both would highly recommend him and will definitely fish with him again.
