Are you looking for a professional guide service in the Orlando or Central Florida area? Captain Mick guides bass anglers year round on two of the best fisheries in North America! He has over 40 years experience fishing the legendary northern waters of Lake Champlain, and nearly 35 years fishing the most productive inland bass waters of Central Florida. He knows that the best time to target trophy Florida strain largemouth bass is around the spawn, from mid-December through March. That's why Bassmasters and the FLW hold major tournaments in Florida during these prime months, and that's why Captain Mick makes his annual pilgrimage to Florida during the winter. He also knows the optimal patterns to bring fish to the boat. Wild shiners are great but they're expensive and other guides insist you pick up the cost. Most of Mick's clients prefer using artificial baits. They enjoy the challenge of enticing a monster bass to inhale a jig, t-bone a spinnerbait, or crush a topwater offering. Mick patiently guides all anglers regardless of their skill level. Call Captain Mick Maynard today, you'll be rewarded with an exciting day of fishing with a seasoned pro.
