Service Areas:


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 for 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.

Share My Techniques

Steve 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 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.

Morning trip Headwaters

Steve Spatafora
Had a great trip this morning. Me and my grandson Riveur Caldwell were here for vacation and booked a fishing trip. It far surpassed any of our expectations. Caught a 7 lb last fish before heading to the dock. Thank you for memorable day.
