Get Hooked Bait And Tackle

Chase Road
Windermere FL, United States

Get Hooked Bait & Tackle runs a variety of awesome fishing trips on the John’s and Butler Chain Lakes. Head out on the water with the guys who know them best, fishing the most productive spots according to the dozens of anglers and guides who stop by the shop on every day.

Spend the day fishing aboard a sturdy and reliable 20’ Kingfisher bass boat. This boat offers one of the most comfortable rides in the area, with room for 4 passengers and plenty of space for 3 anglers to fish in comfort. She comes equipped with all the latest electronics, including a Minn Kota trolling motor with spot lock to get you locked onto the spot where the bite is best. To top it all off, there’s a stereo system ready to play some country music while you sit back and relax along the way.

The local lakes are famous for their awesome Crappie and Largemouth Bass fishing. On a good day, you could be on the business end of over 100 hard-fighting fish. The most effective way to attract them is with live bait. Bait isn’t included in the trip price but you can buy it from the shop at a discounted rate of around $19 a dozen with a minimum order of 3 dozen for the discounted rate.

With four, six, eight, and ten-hour trip options as well as the choice of mornings or afternoons, you can always find a trip to suit your schedule. Get Hooked Bait & Tackle operates a catch and release policy on all their trips, releasing the fish to make sure future generations can enjoy them.

All trips come with tackle and lures and anything else you need can be bought from the bait shop – even your fishing licenses. Ice and cold beverages may be added for an additional cost. So jump aboard and get ready to catch a ton of great fish!

I have been fishing for almost 50 years. I grew up Bass fishing four days a week, riding my bicycle to go fish. I now own the bait shop Get Hooked Bait & Tackle, where hundreds of people come in weekly. We're able to find the best spots and give out the best deals on guided trips with our bait. I'm not one to spread all out and I stick with the waters I know. I guide on Butler Chain and John's Lake. I started guiding because it's like owning the bait shop, I want people to catch fish and what better way than being on the water getting them hooked up! Fishing is my life. we have started a fishing brand Hooked For Life (HFL) and started making shirts and hats as well at the shop. nothing makes me more happy than seeing people catch fish. Bass is my thing and we have caught them year round.

I decided last minute to take a guided trip while I was in the Orlando area.  I went out with Tim and had a great time.  Unfortunately it was right at the tail end of a nasty cold front, but Tim still got me on fish - both live bait and lures.  Great Time!!!

My son and I had such an amazing time out bass fishing with Captain Tim! The trip was originally a gift for my son but we had so much fun it became a gift for both of us. Captain Tim was very nice, professional and knowledgeable. He suggested we use wild shiners to get the maximum amount of fish and man was he right! Brought along 3 dzn am managed to catch 35 bass!!! Will definitely be booking our next trip with Captain Tim at Get Hooked Bait & Tackle
