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.
