Let’s explore the famous Lake Tohopekaliga and many of the surrounding lakes in Orlando. The adventure starts when you board a 20’ Ranger boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This bass boat is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and easily reaches speeds of 60mph. Besides navigational and safety gear, there’s also a live bait tank. No matter what trip you choose, this boat will always provide a safe and reliable ride.

Your main targets for the day are Largemouth Bass and Crappie. Switch between different techniques, such as trolling, spinning, and jigging, and see which one works best for you. One thing is for sure, no matter what you catch, you’ll have a very tasty meal afterward. Feel free to bring your cooler and keep the fish fresh till you get back home.

Your captain will take care of all the fishing equipment you’ll need for the day. But you’re more than welcome to bring what rods and baits you’re comfortable fishing with. Don’t forget to purchase your freshwater fishing license and pack some snacks and drinks for the day. Captain David will provide you with a yeti filled with ice, water, and some sodas. Let’s go have an absolutely amazing day on the water together!
