Trip to Florida Bass fishing

7 posts in this topic

My Daughter is getting married on Sept 30th near Orlando. I have a chance to go Bass fishing 1 day while I am down there. I will have to find a guide service. Does anyone know of any guide service in the Orlando area that they would recommend? I googled a few places but maybe someone else has had a great experience and would like to share the guides name.

Also what lake would would you pick if you had the chance to go?

Lake Toho(shallow stained)

Lake Okeechobee (shallow stained)

Lake Conway (Deep Clear).

Thanks for the input.

Bob

I have fished all of the lake you mention. Also fished Stick Marsh farm 13 (if you put stick marsh farm 13 in a search engine you will get the site with recent fishing report) I really like Toho the best but if you dont know the lake fishing it can be tough. Everywhere you look seems should hold huge fish but they are not easy to find. The most fun I have had fishing in the Orlando area is the Winter Park Chain in Winter Park. A chain of 6-7 smaller lakes with good #'s and size. Enjoy your trip.

My dad use to be a bass guide in the late 80's on Toho and he always said it was one of the best lakes he has ever fished. He said the shiner fishing was absolutely amazing. Im not sure of any guides and my dad passed away 2 years ago but i would definitely look into a guide for lake Taho...We have a mount on our wall at home of a fish that went 12lbs 4oz and then the next week he caught a 13lb 1oz fish. Good luck and have fun

If you are in Orlando why not fish at Walt Disney World?

They have great guides and huge fish - although they are catch and release only if you're looking for a mount.

Thanks Guy's,

I was thinking Toho was my best bet as I want to top my personal best of 6.2# But after reading the Stick Marsh 13 site that Jim Porter has I will give him a shout and see if he has any openings.

Going to St. Pete/Tampa in May, but would be willing to drive inland a few hours. Any suggestions?

    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....

    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
