Captain Bill Goudy Jr – Kissimmee

You may think that fishing in Florida is confined just to the coastal waters. However, just south of Orlando you can experience some great fishing on Lake Tohopekaliga.

Captain Bill Goudy Jr is ready and waiting for you in his 18’ Ranger 185vs bass boat. This elegant little craft is perfect for gliding across the lake’s gentle waters. It’s got fishfinder equipment and an onboard cooler with ice to keep your drinks cool in the afternoon heat

Lake Tohopekaliga has plenty of Largemouth Bass for you to reel in. Captain Bill is a lifelong Bass fisherman and knows every trick in the book to help get you some catches. He’s well supplied in light tackle and has Penn rods and Abu Garcia reels which make for great kit when you’re taking on the Bass.

You’ll be fishing with lures on this trip but live bait can also be provided for you upon request. Captain Bill provides bottled water for all of his fellow fishermen but feel free to take your own drinks with you along with some food. You’ll need to book your Florida fishing license beforehand which is available to purchase online.

Apart from that you’re all set for a superb day targeting Largemouth Bass and maybe even some tasty Crappie as a little bonus on this relaxed trip to the lake.

    An early wake-up call will reward you with plenty of action down on Lake Tohopekaliga. The Largemouth Bass and Crappie love to get up and moving at dawn so you have a great chance to bag yourself a few of them before you head back for lunch. You'll mostly be performing basic spinning techniques using light tackle as that's all that's required to tempt these guys to the bite.

    This is a great chance to immerse yourself into the world of fishing. Brig your kids along or a buddy that's been curious about getting started on the sport. Captain Bill is always on hand to provide some tips and pointers to get you into the swing of things. Not only that but spinning is a technique that is easy to learn and once you get going you'll never want to stop reeling them in.

    You can bag yourself a few extra beauties with a couple more hours on the water. Lake Tohopekaliga has enough fish to go around so you're sure to not get bored on this trip. Largemouth Bass is what you'll be after and if those aren't biting them perhaps the Crappie will in this wonderful little fishery just south of Orlando.

    If you're in Orlando and you love to fish then you'd be making a mistake to skip taking on this trip! There's no need to drive out to the coast as the inland lakes provide great scenic spots for some freshwater fishing. You'll be hoping that the Largemouth Bass and maybe even some Crappie will be tempted to latch onto your lure to take you on in a fishing frenzy!

Hello, I am Captain Bill Goudy Jr. and I am a licensed master captain. I was born in Southeast Iowa and raised on the Mississippi River. I've been fishing ever since I was a little kid. I caught the Bass fishing bug early in life. When I was younger, I found an old Johnson spoon in my father’s tackle box tied it on and caught a Bass. Instantly hooked on fishing, my pursuit to have a career in it was inevitable. Living on the river where his family owned a campground and bait shop he has been putting people on fish for years. He has been married for 21 years and is a father of 4 and grandfather of 1. He moved to Florida to pursue his dream of being a full-time fishing guide.  Captain Bill will help get you on some beautiful Largemouth Bass all day long. The Winter Haven Chain of Lakes and the surrounding Central Florida Bass fisheries are his kingdom, and he's ready to show you around.
