April is still part of our trophy bass fishing season with fifty percent of the trophy bass that we are catching are still pre spawn. Were catching more 10 pound plus bass now then we were in February and March. We had a lot of bad cold fronts that held some of the biggest bass from spawning. The weather has become so nice, the big female bass will spawn during the month of April. We expect this month to be the best month so far for catching Toho lunker bass. We know where your trophy bass lives. Dates for our freshwater Florida Bass Fishing Charters are filling up fast so, get your guided bass trip reserved as soon as possible ,while we still have one of our 7 full time professional bass fishing captions available.

I have just developed a fishing technique that nobody knows about for catching Florida largemouth bass. Bass can’t resist this technique. It’s a wild shiner method for catching bass that is out of the box and takes bass fishing to a new level that we have all dreamed about. This is without a doubt the most exciting way to catch bass on wild shiners that has ever been conceived. The action is hot fast and furious. The bass seem to hit our shiners almost nonstop until we run out of bait. I can’t tell you what the technique is, for fear that our competition will find out what we are doing and copy my secret technique. We are the only ones that know about this and know one will ever figure it out. It is that out of the box and innovated. So come on down, let us at Freelancer Bass Guide Service show you the most exciting way to catch Florida largemouth bass on wild shiners. I can’t wait to show all our customers this new technique.
I think my son and I were one of the first to see this in action during our fishing charter and it works folks...it not only saved our day of fishing, when no one else was catching fish, but made for a really good morning of fishing. ~Keith Perryman
Looking forward to fishing with you!

"Bigger then biggest--That's what happened on a recent Thursday, Friday trip with Jamie. He put Dave Dunn and I on on a spot that yielded the two biggest bass I've ever caught. I thought Thursday's 10 1/2 pounder was a once in a life time shot until Friday. Then the mother of all bass I've caught was landed-- a 13 pounder. What a two day trip. Jamie did it two days straight-- two monster fish. He knows where to go to get record breakers. -Dwain Holmgren."
Ever experience the thrill of maneuvering a 10+ pound largemouth bass out of the

"Just a note to say thanks for setting up a guided fishing trip for me and my 6 year old grandson on short notice last week. You were correct- it was the fishing trip of our lives... Tre talked about the fishing trip all the way home, and he obviously enjoyed it more than Busch Gardens, baseball, the beach, etc!"
Bob Kramer, Villa Hills, KY
"I wanted to thank you again for helping us out in the huge pinch we were in with getting dumped by another guide service. I felt providing a testimonial was the best thing I could do. "I am a novice to intermediate bass fisherman and my wife fishes occasionally with me. We agreed during our honeymoon we would hire a guide and go out and catch some Florida Largemouth. I paid a guide the deposit, had $40 sunk into my fishing license only to have this guide cancel on me less than 12 hours before out trip! In a panic, I called AJ's guide service. He took care of us and got us a guide for the next day with practically no notice. We went out in what would easily be considered poor fishing conditions. A cold front was already passing and a strong storm had come in the night before. Our guide, Bill Hoosier, still managed to put us on fish with no problem at all. Sure I don't have gobs of photo's of 7 to 10lb bass to brag about, but fishing is cyclical and I understood the bite would be tough. He still gave me my best bass by about 10.5lbs, and my wife her best bass by close to a pound. When you go out on a a sub-par fishing day and two of us manage to land the biggest bass of our lives, that speaks volumes of what these guys can do for you. Simply put, I could not express enough thanks to AJ and Bill saving our fishing trip, investment, and experience. You guys made it one to remember. Do not ever think about selecting another guide in the area. I hope I get the chance to come back soon. If I do, I will be calling AJ's guide service and having Bill take us out on the water again, thanks for everything guys!" Matt Clark
Florida is the fishing capitol of the US, with more great places to fish than just about anywhere else in the world. When you are thinking about your next fishing trip remember the giant Bass are waiting for you here in Florida
