WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT CAPT JOHN

We Caught Bass

John Leech
★★★★★
Had a great 6 hours on the lake with Capt John. I caught at least 30 fish. Many over 5 pounds and the largest was 6.6 Pounds. John knows the lake and where the fish are. Of course I left with a story of a the big one that got away. Mike from Canada

Best Bass experience ever

John Leech
★★★★★
Capt. John was excellent, we couldn't have asked for more. He took us to the fish, baited us up and the fun began. In the 4 Hour charter between my wife and myself, we caught more than 30 bass, most were 4 - 6 lbs. We had 3 - 4 boats roaming in the vicinity and None were hauling the fish like us. Not being experienced fishermen, Capt. John was very helpful and patient with his guidance and explanations. We walked away Very happy and better equipped for our next excursion. I would love to spend more time with him on a charter again. Thanks Capt. John

Lake Toho Dec 29

John Leech
★★★★★
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.
