Lets explore 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 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. Lets go have an absolutely amazing day on the water together!

Captain David started fishing with his father when he was a kid. He then graduated to fishing tournaments when he was 16 to see how well he could compete against the best fisherman in the midwest. Starting in 2015, Captain David followed his ever-growing fishing passion all the way to the professional level for a few years. In 2018, he decided he wanted to be a full-time fishing guide, to show other people how to catch fish and fall in love with this sport that he so much adores. Come join him fishing, have a blast, make tons of memories, and learn some fishing tricks to take home for yourself!
