I only want to catch a giant fish--a trophy--a legend.
If this is your only objective, please call someone else. Or I'll gladly give you the number of a guide that only fishes on private, stocked ponds. Prices start at $1,000 a pound and go up from there.
If, however, you'd like to enjoy an entertaining and educational day on a legendary lake, with the chance for any cast to result in a 12 incher, or a 12 pounder, then let's go fishing and see what the day brings.
Do you supply the fishing license?
No. You must have your own fishing license. This is a Florida state requirement for every single bass fishing guide service on public water.
Here's a link to buy online. You don't have to have the actual paper copy with you, so a screen image of your license is fine. (if a guide says you don't need it, or if they say 'the boat covers it', please beware)
What do I actually need to bring?
Fishing license, as we discussed
Dress for the weather. Consider open water is usually cooler when windy and the sun is hotter than you think.
Any special food or drinks you require. We have sports drinks, water, and snacks.
Bring you GPS. No secrets here.
