Captain Shea Arnold welcomes you to Big Bass Guide Service, operating out of Winter Haven, Florida. As a USCG licensed captain and full-time professional bass fishing guide, Captain Shea will guide you on the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, including Lake Toho, Istokpoga, and the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes. Whether you are a local or tourist, Central Florida offers some of the best bass fishing in the country. Let Captain Shea guide you to the bass!
Captain Shea fishes off of a 21ft bass boat that is fully equipped to get you on the fish. It can comfortably fish 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 small children. This fishing machine has everything you need for a great day of reeling in some trophy-sized Largemouth Bass!
Captain Shea specializes in trophy bass fishing and will tailor each trip to your needs. He will also provide all the gear required for a great day on the water. You will need to bring a valid Florida fishing license. You may also want to bring appropriate seasonal clothing, rain gear (just in case), sunglasses (preferably polarized), sunscreen, a hat, a camera and your favorite drinks and snacks. The boat is equipped with an ice chest and Captain Shea will provide ice and water to drink.
Located just minutes from Orlando, in Polk County, which is home to over 554 lakes, Captain Shea and Big Bass Guide Service fish in many of the most sought after public and private lakes throughout Central Florida. Captain Shea has been fishing these waters for years, and knows just the right spots to get you hooked up.
Fishing for Largemouth Bass in Orlando is unlike any other fishing experience you’ve ever had! The fishery in Central Florida is abundant thanks to the conservation efforts of anglers and FWC. Largemouth Bass is a catch-and-release only species, so there’s plenty of fish waiting for a good fight!
Grab your gear, hop aboard, cast your line and wait for the tug on the other end. Big Bass Guide Service and Captain Shea look forward to providing you with a fishing adventure that will leave you with memories to last a life time.
If you have a group of more than three, Captain Shea can accommodate six passengers on his pontoon boat, available here.
