If you’re a Bass fishing fanatic and you want to absolutely make sure you’ll get hooked up, look no further than Making Big Bass Memories. Your guide, Justin Makin, is so certain that you can catch fish that he guarantees it with a no fish – no pay policy. He specializes in putting families and kids on the best Bass fishing lakes in Central Florida where they can get a shot at some seriously giant fish.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 20’ Triton bass boat, powered by a 200 HP Evinrude engine. Capable of a top speed of well over 50 knots, this vessel will get you to all the spots you decide to visit without wasting any time. Equipped with all the necessary safety equipment, GPS and fish finding electronics, wireless trolling motor and live bait tank, the boat still has enough room to accommodate 3 anglers fishing at the same time. 

Justin is a specialized guide and he only targets Largemouth Bass. This, however, doesn’t mean that his trips are only for seasoned veterans. Novice anglers and kids all ages are also welcome. You’ll be provided by top-notch Shimano rods and reels and any live bait you need will be bought before the trip and is always included in the price. You will need to bring a fishing license valid for the day of the trip.
So if you’re in the area anytime soon and in the mood for Makin Big Bass Memories, pack some drinks and snacks, grab your sunglasses and book your next fishing adventure right away!
