Arti-Fish-Ial Entmt Guide Svc

Welcome to Arti-Fish-Ial Entmt Guide! Meet Captain Lou, born and raised native of South Florida, who has been chasing Bass for over 35 years. The Everglades has been his playground for over 25 years, and the South End of Lake Okeechobee for the last 8 years.

Capt. Lou’s passion is teaching visiting anglers and/or anglers who are new to this sport from all walks of life, the nuts and bolts about Largemouth and Peacock Bass fishing. When you’re on the water, his focus and goal is for you to have a great time, and learn something new about Bass fishing. In a sense, Capt. Lou is a unique guide, as he’s an artificial-lure-only guide service.

Enjoy your outing on a sleek, spacious 19’ 2019 Vexus boat. Propelled by a quiet, but yet strong Mercury ProXS 115 HP outboard engine, this bass boat is not a speed demon, but it cruises nicely allowing you to enjoy all the scenery our South Florida waters have to offer.

To catch Peacock and Largemouth Bass, you’ll be using heavy tackle, alongside spinning reels, available for both adults and children. If you already have your favorite fishing equipment, feel free to bring it with you.

Please bring your fishing licenses (you can purchase it online), snacks, food, and drinks. Lastly, remember to bring sunscreen.

If you’re up for an adventure and looking to learn how to really fish with artificial lures, then Arti-Fish-Ial Entmt Guide is perfect for you. See you on the water!
