Any one on this site have any experience with fishing guides in the Orlando Florida area. Have a business trip in Nov and just wondering about doing a little Bass fishing.

Thanks

SteveO,

If you are headed to FL I highly encourage you to take a look at a saltwater trip rather then a bass trip. I love bass fishing as much as the next guy but saltwater fishing is a very unique thing that just can't be done in this part of the country.

I fished freshwater throughout the country (about 12 different states) and any time I get the chance to sample saltwater I jump. In Orlando you are only 2 hours either way from GREAT inshore or offshore fishing.

Take a look at it, Red Fish, Snook, Grouper, etc.... They will all kick anything that swims in freshwater right in the be hind.

If you wanna bass on a budget, visit Turkey Lake park in Orlando.They rent out "bass boats" for $15 half day! You gotta get there really early though.

Ive fished that lake (bay lake) several times. Its got really high numbers of fish with the majority 2-3 pounders with the occasional 5. The panfish in that lake are HUGE and dumb. 9 and 10 inch sunnies run rampant in there, even caught an 11".

Ive fished Turkey lake, too. Only from shore but caught a few small bass, big crappies, and locals were cathcing lots of cats.

Also fished Toho. I just googled Florida bass guides and went through them all and found one I thought would be good. Some will pick you up in the orlando area for little to no charge if you dont have a vehicle.

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
