      Trip of a lifetime
      I had a trip of a lifetime! Captain Bob was a pleasure to spend the day with. I caught loads of fish with his guidance even though the canals had gotten 10 inches of rain in the days prior to my trip. Fishing for peacock bass in the Snapper Creek canal was the best part of my trip to Miami. We don't have those fish in Montana where I'm from and they fight like crazy. Captain Bob was very patient with me as I felt with snags and line issues throughout the day. His 25 plus years of experience were not lost on me as I pulled in bass after bass. I would go back on that trip in a heartbeat and will carry the memories of that day with me always.

      Utah man gets his bucket list filled.
      Captain Fellows was simply awesome. His knowledge was amazing. He was super nice and fun. Made the trip worth the money. When I told him a largemouth from Okeechobee was on my bucket list...bam, He fulfilled my dream. I'm from Utah.

      Unbelievable Trip!
      Captain Ken Walker was outstanding! We did the 4-hour trip on Rodman. I've fished all over, for all types. As has my buddy. This was over the top on expectations and results.

      Lake Okeechobee bass vs Captain Galen
      Today was a great day on world famous Lake Okeechobee. Fish were plentiful and so were the stories. Captain Galen Fugh was a great guide and outstanding “Wang” man! It was a day for checking off something on our bucket list and making memories. We highly recommend you let them hook you up with some bug bass!

      An awesome day on Lake Toho with bassonline.com guide and Captain John Leech January 2024
      My wife had a business trip in the Orlando area so I tagged along and scheduled a trip with Capt. John Leech in late January hoping to catch some big pre spawn bass on Lake Toho. A big cold front came through the day before our trip so the potential for a tough day was there. With the expert help of Capt. John, and despite the very cool conditions, we were able to catch fish all day long! We caught a lot in the 2-4 pound range with a couple of 5 pounders and one that went 6.32 for big fish of the day. It was an excellent day and John was wonderful company! I Highly recommend Capt. John Leech if you are looking for a person who flat knows where they are and how to catch them! By the way this is my second trip to Florida in the past year. I have booked through bassonline.com both times one on Okeechobee and then this trip to Toho. The trips were professional and exactly what I asked for and paid for each time. Book with confidence!

      "Bass Online" on Lake Ida, FL...Disappointing
      I used Bass Online on January 5, 2023 for a half day trip on Lake Ida in Del Ray , FL for some bass fishing. Would rate the guide, Bobby Kimble, a 3 out of 5 overall. He was knowledgeable and had a good disposition. He was on time and ready to go with good equipment. I would have given the guide a higher rating except for being up charged $50 extra for live bait at the end of the trip even though I did not request live bait and was NEVER informed ahead of time by the guide that live bait would cost me another $50. Did not know of the up charge until I received a final invoice in an email. In fact the guide's online profile indicated that both artificial lures and live bait were both included in the original booking price. This was a classic "bait and switch" practice as I see it. I would also rate "Bass Online Fishing Guides" a 3 of 5 given what I feel was a deceptive business practice by sneaking in the live bait up charge and refusal to refund me for the live bait up charge. I never requested live bait on my reservation and the invoice sent to me at the time of booking did not include a charge for live bait. So be aware of this additional surprise charge to the pricing at days end. I am rating Lake Ida as 2 of 5 stars for fishing during the winter months. I do think Bass Online could be more forthcoming as to the current fishing report. I was not aware the fishing would be so slow. The water temps were in the high 60's that chilled the bite to a crawl, with 4 netted fish in 4 hours, with two casting, myself and the guide. Only two of the fish caught were bass (Peacock). Also at this time of year we were fishing mostly under docks, back up against the seawall. This required precision casting each and every time to get in the target zone with a difficult skipping the bait technique. Not a simple task. This was not discussed by the guide prior to the trip. End of day, the fish caught were off of casts made by the guide. Just not as much fun when your own casts amount to nothing. Casting is actually an essential aspect of fishing. Bottom line, I would not fish Lake Ida again until the water temps were well into the 70's for me to get my money's worth of action. In the end I was charged $355, plus tip, for a 4 hour trip. Very disappointing. I would also not use Bass Online to book a guide given what I would consider a deceptive business practice regarding the charge for live bait . Best of luck to all the anglers.

      Miami area peacock bass fishing
      I went peacock bass fishing with Captain Kirk We went out and fish the Falls canal area for Peacock Bass was an excellent day. Captain Kirk is a great person and guide. He put us on fish very knowledgeable fun to be around one of the better guys I fished with it’s not the best he was a wonderful guide made our whole day. Call lots of fish I don’t give 10. Very often but I would absolutely give Captain Kirk a 10 had no complaints or faults just was a great all-around guide and experience today. Lots of fish right eligible on personal guide, and a great person would highly recommend him for anybody no matter how much fish and experience you have or how little hill. Hope you catch a lot of fish . Lee

      Mark put me on fish immediately (caught around 40), the boat was state of the art and the conversation was good. We will definitely book a trip with Mark in the near future.

      Great trip
      If you’d like to bass fish, don’t miss this fishing opportunity. Fished at headwaters lake in Fellsmere Florida. Fished it the first time loved it went back six weeks later because it was such a great trip. We booked our trip with guide Paul Dampier and he did a great job for us. Paul put us on fish every day and we were catching 30 to 40 fish. And those were only the ones we caught. We had at least that many that we had on the line that got off. I’m already getting ready to book my next trip at headwaters lake with Paul. Paul was a great guide and really took care of us throughout each day we fished.

      Awesome experience!!!
      We had an incredible time with Mike! He called us the day before and asked us to change locations because the fish weren't biting at his normal place. Well he definitely chose a good place to go!!! Within 20 minutes I had caught a 4+ pound peacock bass!!! It was a beauty!!! We went on to catch a total of 10 fish and 3 different species!! We will definitely be going back next year!!!

      Best Peacock Bass Guide hands down
      I booked an 8 hour peacock bass fishing trip with bass online. They were very informative about the different places they fish. Because we were staying in Pompano beach they recommended I fish Lake Ida. They hooked me up with Capt. John Larsen for my trip. Capt. John reached out to me to finalize things the day before the trip. He asked questions to see what kind of fish I wanted to target. Once I told him that I wanted to mostly catch peacock bass he let me know the fishing style and what we would be doing. He made recommendations for how much live bait we needed and let me know he would have a cooler full of ice and water. We could bring other drinks and food. I showed up at the ramp and Capt. John was all ready to go. We headed to our first place. I am a bass fisherman so he only needed to explain that we needed to skip the bait under the docks and watch the line. My second cast the line jumped and started to move. I reeled down on the fish and set the hook. The fish did not move and it was like setting the hook on a rock. Then the fish just started to dig. Capt. John let me know to keep him away from the pylons and get him into open water. After a brief solid fight Capt. John netted my fish. A 2 1/2 pound peacock bass. We caught over 30 fish that day and I had the best time. Capt. John used my camera and took some shots of me and then I had him fish and took some shots of him. You need to book a trip with Capt. John Larsen he knows his stuff and puts you on the fish!!!

    Capt. Wayne was very professional in his preparation and knowledge. I wanted my wife to catch her first peacock and Wayne made sure that would happen. We got to a great spot and caught a mix of peacock largemouth and even a Mayan Chiclid. Almost non stop fishing and conversation the entire trip. Great day.

    My son and I went out with Captain Mike today and had a blast! Captain Mike is a professional and engaging guide. His equipment was top notch and I really liked his boat. We pulled a nice amount of fish in the boat on a day they weren’t too active.
    I was lucky enough to bring in a 5+ lb peacock bass!!! I will be a repeat client and I highly recommend Captain Mike!

    We has an amazing time. Our guide was Capt Jose Carbonell, he was friendly, knowledgeable and put us on the fish we wanted to catch immediately. We had an amazing time catching a fish basically every couple minutes. Everything was taken care of by Jose and he help make the fishing easy. We were there for peacock bass and caught a bunch. Many were above the 4lb mark providing long, reel screaming fights. Other highlights were the cichlids and clown knife fish which provided tough fights when they rocket out of the water after being hooked. I would definitely go out with Jose again and would recommend his services to everyone.

    My husband and I booked a 4 hour trip with Capt Wayne to go peacock bass fishing in the canals off of Lake Ida. This was a “bucket list” trip for our 15 year old fish loving son. Our 10 year old son who doesn’t love to fish also came along. Capt Wayne was very knowledgeable and was a great guide. Although the fish weren’t biting real well the day we went, he still made sure we caught several and took pictures of us with the fish. In all, it was a great trip and I would highly recommend using this guide service and Capt Wayne!
