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 not included in the price of the trip and they cost $25 per dozen. 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.

I was born and raised in Vero Beach, Florida, and have been fishing since the of age 5. I learned to appreciate fishing at a young age. I've been a USCG licensed captain for over five years and I love to teach other people how to fish and show them the fun of fishing. I fish almost every day to make sure I'll always be able to bring the clients the most action when they're fishing.
