Fish Hand Guide Service LLC

When searching for a superior Bass fishing, look no further than Fish Hand Guide Service. Captain Dan has over 30 years of experience fishing both freshwater and saltwater, and he would love to make your day on the water a memorable one.

You’ll be fishing from a 21’ Ranger bass boat, which is equipped with the latest Garmin electronics. The boat accommodates up to 3 guests but even 4 is possible (if the group has 2 adults and 2 kids).

There are lots of fishing grounds to choose from and some of them are Stick Marsh/Farm 13, Lake Garcia, Kenansville Lake, Blue Cypress Lake. To make the most of your trip and give you the best catching chances, the captain will suggest where to go. Get in touch in advance, as this also means your meeting spot will differ.

Your guide will provide all needed equipment and instruction for catching Largemouth Bass and other freshwater fish species. You’ll enjoy fishing in beautiful surroundings filled with a wide variety of birds and other aquatic wildlife. Be on the lookout for the American Alligator which inhabits the area and is seen regularly while fishing. A fishing license, sunglasses, sunblock, and a camera are "must-have" on this great adventure.

Fishing and viewing wildlife on Florida’s lakes and marshes is a great way to immerse yourself in nature. Join Fish Hand Guide Service and explore one of Florida’s greatest treasures!
