Captain Steve Spatafora grew up in Orlando making him one of the few Florida fishing native guides. He is a Licensed Captain who has fished his entire life in Orlando for many freshwater species including crappie, largemouth, and peacock bass. Some of his favorite fishing holes include Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, Harris Chain of Lakes, St. John’s River, and several other area lakes.

His new favorite is Florida’s newest fishery called Headwaters lake. His lifelong pursuit of trophy largemouth bass makes for an exciting, educational, and safe time on the water for everyone. Captain Steve will always be positive, professional, and patient with both beginners and seasoned anglers.  He will do everything he can to make sure his customers are having a great time!

He accommodates half-day, three-quarter-day, and full-day trips for your convenience.  All trips include quality tackle (right and left-handed), artificial baits, all necessary safety equipment, cold soft drinks, and water.  Feel free to bring your own tackle and equipment if you prefer. Captain Steve will work hard to get you a beautiful trophy largemouth bass on any one of the surrounding Central Florida bass fisheries.

Capt Steve Spatafora preferred style of fishing for largemouth bass here in Orlando Florida is with live bait. It is the most successful method to land trophy-size 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 how to use some of the best lures to catch bass all across the United States.

Once again I had an awesome fishing trip with Capt. Steve on Headwaters Lake. This was my 5th trip out with Capt Steve and like the other 4, it was fully up to the high expectations he had set. I have taken out my wife, my friends, and my father and he has been very accommodating to all! It was not an easy fishing day, being in south Florida during a cold front, but we made it happen with 23 boated fish, including multiple 3-4 pounders and a 7lb8oz hog of a largemouth. Nothing but the highest recommendations for Capt. Steve and the time you will have when you book with him!

I've fished with Capt. Steve a few times. There are plenty of captains to choose from, but when you got the best, use the best. I always reserve Capt. Steve. He is dedicated, knowledgeable, and has a fun filled spirit. If you want results, choose Capt. Steve. We were in harsh conditions today to say the least. Cold! Rain for four+ hours. Wind! And we still landed 32 good fish! (We missed a couple hook sets, or the number could have been bigger).
