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.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
