South Florida Fishing Guides

South Florida Fishing Guides is a veteran-owned and operated business located in Lake Worth. Captain Jason has been fishing for over 40 years and would love to share his passion with you. He will work hard to ensure you have a day filled with laughs and hooksets, memories that will last a lifetime, and hopefully a new friendship.

The freshwater lakes and canals of Southeast Florida, between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, provide over 50 miles of fishable area that are all interconnected. Largemouth Bass, Peacock Bass, Clown Knife Fish, Catfish, Crappie, and several other species call this system home. On these 4 to 8-hour trips, you can expect to use techniques such as light tackle, heavy tackle, fly fishing, jigging, popping, and spinning.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 22’ Tracker 2072 Grizzly boat that can safely take up to 4 anglers. The boat comes with a wireless trolling motor.

Please make sure to buy a valid fishing license ahead of time. South Florida Fishing Guides offers only catch and release trips, so any fish you catch will be returned to the water. The boat will be supplied with drinks for your pleasure and feel free to let the captain know if you have any questions or want to bring your own.

Captain Jason is thankful for allowing him the opportunity to provide you with a world-class fishing trip. Once he gets you on the boat, he is sure he will see you for years to come.

Fishing being his passion, Captain Jason has fished his whole life. He has fished all over the country including Alaska and Hawaii. He spent 22 years in the military traveling and fishing the entire time. The captain started guiding when he retired in Alaska in 2016 and decided to opt for year-round warmth here in Florida. In 6 years, my business, Alaska Lakes Guide Service, became the #1 fishing guide business winning 2021 Best of Alaska. Now, Captain Jason wants to take his talent for putting people on incredible fish to sunny Florida.
