Captain
Scott Taylor

Member since December 2017 Winter Haven, United States
Background
Capt. Scotty Taylor is the Senior Pro Guide at Camp Mack, a Guy Harvey Lodge, Marina & RV Resort, as well as bring the Official Guide for VisitCentralFlorida.org - the Central Florida Sports Marketing and Polk County Tourism Board. He guides these lakes on a daily basis and he knows where those big fish live and hide. Thanks to his in-depth knowledge of the area, he always knows how best to get you on the fish.
Techniques
Capt. Scott specializes in fishing for Central Florida trophy largemouth bass with artificial baits, and the boat is loaded with a wide array of soft plastics (including worms, flukes, craws, and swim baits), topwater walking baits and frogs, jigs, punch baits for heavy mats & grass, and jerk baits. We will also help guests who wish to fish with live shiners. The most popular trips focus on fishing with artificial baits while occasionally using shiners to entice and fire-up a few big fish. Scott Taylor's Central Florida Bass Fishing Guide Service accommodates anglers of all ages & experience levels. We offer artificial bait as well as live bait/shiner trips, depending upon the lakes and anglers preferences. Living in Winter Haven and having 50 lakes in or on the city limits offers us a wide variety of options. And since we run the guide service for Camp Mack's River Resort on the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes we have miles of Olde World Florida to fish for trophy bass.
