Southern Fried Charters - Bass

Southern Fried Charters invites you down to Orange Springs, FL, to spend the day fishing for trophy Largemouth and other great freshwater species along the winding waterways of the famous Rodman Reservoir and beyond.

Largemouth Bass are many an angler’s favorite fish thanks to their intelligence and hard-fighting nature. Captain Chris is no exception. He has been fishing these waters for decades and knows all the best spots to get you on the biggest fish out there.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 20’ Sundance skiff. Built in 2004, she can carry groups of 6 with ease, cruising at speeds of up to 30 knots to get you to the best and most remote spots without wasting half your trip.

The boat is equipped with everything you will need for your day on the water. GPS and fishfinder will sound out the murky depths below in search of ideal fishing spots and will pinpoint all Captain Chris’ favorites.

Once in place, you will be given high-quality tackle so you always have the upper hand. You can fish with a selection of lures or Captain Chris can arrange live wild Shiners for your trip at a cost of $20 a dozen. Whatever you prefer.

Southern Fried Charters offers trips to suit any schedule, at rates that won’t hurt the wallet, so there really is no reason to say no. Get out on the water for a day of awesome fishing, and Captain Chris will make sure you catch something special!
