Headwaters Lake & Fellsmere Reservoir

Exclusive Fellsmere Charters with Captain Bill are the best chance at your giant Bass of a lifetime! Capt. Bill has been running fishing trips at Headwaters Lake and Fellsmere Reservoir since the beginning and now offers his experience and knowledge to you. He also has lifelong experience fishing and looking forward to sharing his skills.

There’s enough room on the boat for up to 4 anglers to go fishing. The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 19’ Ranger. It has everything you’ll need for catching fish at the lake or shallow waters.

Capt. Bill specializes in Bass fishing with artificial lures but is happy to use live bait if it suits your desires. The headwaters of Fellsmere are in the 4 to 8 feet range and are one of the best places with 10 to 20’ water. Let the captain know which techniques you’d like to master, and he’ll adjust everything.

It’s one of the top 5 trophy Bass locations worldwide, making it worth a trip. Since you are the focus for the day, all trips are private. There’s no one else on the boat, and you can choose between a morning or an afternoon adventure.

This is a premier guide service, and the captain provides quality equipment and bottled water. He welcomes vets, handicapped ladies, couples, and especially kids.

Fellsmere Lake Charters looks forward to fishing with you!

Hello, I am Captain Bill and a licensed master captain. Originally born in 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 of 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 heard about Headwaters Lake being open, so he moved to Florida to pursue his dream of being the first full-time fishing guide on Headwaters and now has a team of guides that work with him.  Captain Bill and the team will help get you experience Headwaters and Stick Marsh like no other, producing beautiful trophy Largemouth Bass all day long. Also, enjoy fishing Winter Haven Chain of Lakes and the surrounding Central Florida Bass fisheries are his kingdom! Don't look any further, choose the sure thing by clicking the book now button now. Let's go catch some trophies that the others only talk about!
