Bass Fishing with Capt. Jonathan
Based in St Cloud, Florida, Capt. Jonathan Wilson fishes the exceptionally clear waters of East Lake Tohopekaliga nearly every day. Situated within easy reach of Orlando, St Cloud is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and Capt. Jonathan will help you make the most of your time in the beautiful scenery of the Lake by providing a first class fishing experience.
Capt. Jonathan fishes aboard a 20 ft Eagle Tournament Edition boat that was designed specifically for fishing for Bass. Featuring a 150 HP engine, the boat can travel quickly around the local lakes to wherever the best fishing happens to be. A trolling motor is fitted on the boat, allowing anglers to approach spooky fish quietly, and a GPS and Fishfinder will make sure the experienced captain will get you to the best spots to fish. There is also plenty of dry storage on board for all your personal belongings.
When you fish with Capt. Jonathan you will mainly be targeting America’s most popular game fish and Florida’s state freshwater fish, the Largemouth Bass. You will be fishing with high quality light tackle by Shimano and Penn and could be using both live bait and lures. Wild Shiners, one of the most effective Bass baits, are included in the price of the trip. Great tasting Crappies are also frequently targeted on Jonathan’s fishing charters.
All rods, reels and terminal tackle are included in the price of the trip and the captain will happily clean and fillet any fish you want to take home with you at the end of the day.

Two things. No, three. (No one expects the Spanish Inquisition…) One, it’s always toughest to fish in August. Regardless, it was a great day fishing with Captain Jonathan. We fished (catch and release, so that there will be more fish in the future) a large portion of the lake, but nearly all the fish (Largemouth, Bowfin, Pickerel) we caught were from one, single, small ten (10) foot diameter hole on a weed bed edge. Two, we had great conversation all day on a wide variety of topics. Captain Jonathan is no slouch in the rhetoric department. And finally, every time we had a strike, Captain Jonathan would call out, “Steve, get the rod…” I would respond, and try for the fish. By the way, my name is Ken. But today, during a great experience, I was proudly “Steve” for a day.

We had a great time on the morning fishing trip! Jonathan was great coaching to putting us on the fish all morning.
He made us feel welcome, comfortable, and took care of everything. We will definitely call Jonathan on our next trip. Thanks Jonathan!
