Haulin Bass Guide Service:Bass Boat

616 Hibiscus Trail
Melbourne Beach FL, United States

Haulin Bass Guide Service is ready and waiting to take you for a trip you won’t forget in the pristine swamps, lakes, and rivers of central and eastern Florida. With a good sense of humor, a track record for putting people on seriously big fish, and two quality boats in their inventory, there is no need to look any further for your freshwater Floridian fishing experience.

This 21 ft Bass Cat boat is designed to take up to three people plus the captain fishing in the local area. Its size makes it very easy to transport to whichever local lake has the best bite for the time of year you are fishing - if you’re looking for flexibility, these guys have it. Recently restored and equipped with top of the range electronics, the boat works just as well for serious anglers as it does for beginners. And with excellent boat to shore communication taken on board as standard, you will never be out of reach even in the very unlikely event of an emergency.

Choose from a half day, three quarter day, and full day fishing trip and see how many Bass you can hook. These lively fish could probably win an award for being most of America’s number one freshwater fishing target, and Captain Mike will teach you his tried and tested techniques for coaxing them to the boat for that all-important photo (and the bragging rights that come with it). He will provide a variety of artificial lures for you to use, with plastics, spinner baits, rattle traps and many more making up his inventory. If you’re more of a live bait kind of person, that can also be arranged, with live shiners available to purchase at the market price.

Haulin Bass Guide Service also runs trips on a speedy airboat - click on the captain’s name below for more information.
