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.

Not sure how hard it is, but if you can book a trip fishing the DisneyWorld lakes I thinkm you will have a great day.

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.
