Central Florida Bass Fishing – Winter Haven

Central Florida Bass Fishing aims to stay true to its name and be the primary destination for all your Bass fishing needs. Captain Scott Taylor will be your guide, and you can always count on him to get the job done. Whether you’re a novice angler or someone with years of experience, he’ll tailor the trip to your individual needs.

His boat is a Skeeter FX21 Limited Edition that’s powered by a single 250 HP Yamaha SHO. You need an agile boat like this one in order to reach some of the best fishing spots in this part of Florida. With a wireless trolling motor on board, along with a full array of navigation electronics, you’ve got everything you need to get on the fish and stay there.

The fishing grounds you’ll be in lend themselves wonderfully to some really big fish. Your main target on any given trip will be Largemouth Bass, but you might also run into some Bluegill and Speck along the way. A fish that can pose a challenge, but is also loads of fun to fish for, what else could you possibly need on a trip like this?

Capt. Scott will provide you with quality rods, reels, and terminal tackle for the trip. Please note that all trips have a mandatory catch and release policy. While there will be water and Gatorade, you are more than welcome to bring your own drinks and food if you like.

If freshwater fishing is your type of fishing, come on down for a trip to remember!
