I booked a five hour guided bass fishing trip with Captain Bill Whipple January 22, 2018. Surprise Christmas present for my dad. We had a blast and caught so many fish! My dad caught his new personal PB! What an awesome day! Captian Bill was so knowledgeable about the lake and Florida wildlife! Would highly recommend to anyone considering a guided tour of trophy bass fishing. We will be repeat customers for sure!

We had cold tough conditions for fishing but captain Bill knows the lake very well and got us to the fish. For tough conditions ie 40 degrees we caught fish and Captain Bill worked hard to get us fish and fish we got.
Very hard worker very knowledgeable and makes it's enjoyable for all. If you want to catch fish let captain Bill work for you.

Went out with Capt Bill April 17.Started early and enjoyed the sunrise and some willing Bass, a couple af hours with action, hooking Bass and a couple of long nosed Gar. Bill is the man to contact in order to get a nice trip on Lake Toho, his knowledge about the fishing and wildlife is amazing, and he´s on top of that fun to be around:-)

Came down to Florida from Wisconsin on Feb 24th 2017 and booked one of the best fishing trips ever!! Captain Bill and I had some great times talking about fishing along with catching some nice Bass. Got us on bass right away and Bill kept us on bass all day! Great time! Nice Captain! All around just what I wanted! Coming from that far away one never knows what to expect. But after talking to Bill he kept his promise to catch fish! Thank you Bill!

I booked a bass fishing trip on March 14th 2017 and the weather was very windy 10 to 25 MPH. But that did not affect the catch. Caught many fish (17) plus others like gar and dog fish. took some nice photos and threw all the extra over the limit fish back.
Captain Bill get's you on fish. I was very satisfied, he does a great job as a guide.
Thanks for the great time fishing Captain Bill.
I would highly recommend booking your fishing with Captain Bill.

Had a great time. Captain Bill knows how to catch big fish and make your day on the water enjoyable. Took mom (75 young) out and she was the big winner on our boat. Will definitely book again next year.

Captain Bill Whipple is one great guide and will take care of you. I have fished with a number of guides over the years but Captain Bill truly stands out. The fishing at Lake Toho is the best I have ever seen and I attribute this to Bill's knowledge of the lake. Conditions can change daily and Bill really knows this lake. My wife is not an early riser and Bill was able to get the bait and have everything ready before we joined him and had a great time. Roughly 14 large mouths made it to the boat. This is really my favorite place to fish and with my favorite guide. Cannot wait until next time.

We got so much for our money! The wildlife was worth the price and the fishing was a bonus. We were even able to catch a few on our own using the pointers we got from you. Thank you! We will be back for sure.

This was my third guided bass fishing trip with Captain Bill Whipple and the first for my friend, who was on short leave from the US Air Force. We fished with wild shiners on West Lake Toho and were on the bass immediately!

My friend landed his personal best and I lost count how many bass we caught in total. We also caught a huuuuge bowfin, saw Bald Eagles, rare Snail Kites (hawks) up close, and a couple of gators.

Best of all, my friend was able to get in dozens of reps at setting the hook with live bait. I was hoping for a high numbers day for that very reason and we got it. Captain Bill provided pro tips throughout the day which will absolutely be utilized for a lifetime. Take note Florida residents: if you think you have live bait fishing down, I suggest you take a guided trip on nearby Lake Toho for a master class with Captain Bill Whipple.

Hey Bill, I just wanted to tell you thanks for taking us fishing. Even though we didn’t catch and big momma’s we had a great time. I attached a pic of my fishin hole, some stripers we caught and my pet rattle snake. I will call you when we come back down. Hopefully cooler weather = better fishing. If you are bored one rainy day check out my buddy on You tube (Kayak bass fishing with Chad Hoover) he is a clown but a good fisherman. Take care buddy.

Captain Bill was a great guide and very professional. You could definitely tell he is a hard worker and will do whatever he can to get you on some big ones. He'll also teach you a heck of a lot about fishing if you're down to learn. Thank you again Bill'

Just finished had another great day on the water with Captain Bill. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to have a chance of a lifetime to catch a trophy bass to book him. He absolutely works his butt off for you and enjoys your successes as his own. My dad and I have been booking him on yearly basis for 9 years now and the memories we have of him and the Giants we have caught will always stick in our minds, especially when we are fishing back home in Ohio. Thanks Bill

I brought two of my friends from the Ocala area and they loved every minute of the trip . They are already making plans to return with the better halves this month

From: Ann and Jeff Davis - We had the most amazing trip with Capt. Bill! As a double birthday gift, we wanted to spend a day fishing. We didn't just fish...we caught! Our arms hurt from reeling (and posing with a 12lb. bass), and our sides hurt from laughing at Capt. Bill and his hilarious stories from a life spent on the water! What did NOT hurt was our wallet. The trip, the bait, the whole experience was affordable and well worth every penny we spent.
We highly recommend Capt. Bill and will absolutely be joining him for another adventure!

Now dad is 90 years young and again you take care of him like your father, you make is so easy to get him in and out of the boat and this year with his walker and the new floating dock makes it easy for him to get in and out.( Thank Wild Willy)
So for those of you from 5 to 90 if you want to go fishing in St Cloud Fl Captain Bill Whipple is the one you want to go fishing with....And you always catch fish..
Thanks for all the years of fishing and Great Time on the Water....See you in a few weeks with my grandson....and Dad again

That was my first time fishing with my 2 girls,my niece and brother in law it was alot of fun filled with alot of fish and great memories. The only bad part is now they want a boat to go fishing every weekend. Your a great fishing guide and I hope to go again soon. Thanks

From: Jay & Sonja - Just wanted to say Captain Bill is the man for great fishing while in the St. Cloud area. We actually had a BIG fish hooked and the rod went into the lake while Captain Bill was tending to the boat. Poor fella wanted to jump in & get it, but it just wasn't in the cards that particular day. About an hour or so after our excursion he called us back to tell us how he found the rod along with a 5# Bass tangled in the weeds. We're glad you got your rod back Captain Bill and wanted to tell you thanks again for a great fishing excursion.

From: Darren and Joseph Ruane - We would like to say a big thank you to Captain Bill for a fantastic morning of fishing on the 22nd October. My son Joe said that was his best day in Florida and not the theme parks! he loved all the wildlife and the boat ride as much as the fishing. Thanks for making it such a great day. I will post some of the pictures on your facebook page.

From: Scott Earls - Boy we sure did enjoy our trip with you yesterday! Fishing was good early; then a little later on I caught a 7.95 – which is my personal best!!! (which was 7.0 almost 10 years ago. I finally topped it!!!)

You were a terrific guide! Here are just a few things that I noticed:
* You were right on time and ready to go first thing in the morning
* Your boat was in excellent condition and was VERY clean – and you kept it that way all morning long
* Your fishing equipment was prepared and ready to go; and you had everything we needed
* You always kept us in the most productive areas to fish – which was a lot of work at times
* You (somehow) saw us getting hits when dad and I both had no clue at times
* You taught us how to catch fish with live bait and heavy equipment (something us mid-westerners had no clue about)
* You were especially patient with me when I made mistakes
* You were especially considerate of dad knowing that he doesn’t see very well
* And you were very pleasant to be with and visit with.

Honestly, you did everything and much more than we expected from a fishing guide! Thanks for such a great day of fishing!

From: Tim Carter - Just wanted to thank you again for the fantastic fishing. We greatly enjoyed the afternoon. The fishing was excellent and your knowledge of all aspects of the lake and bass fishing were ''"the icing on the cake". The pictures turned out great. Can''t wait for the mount to be completed. We already have a spot for it on the wall. If you ever need a reference, feel free to have people contact me.

He really loves fishing but that is not my specialty. Have a happy Thanksgiving. We love that work "sockalau" for the fish.

From: Joe McLachlan - Hello Captain Bill, I just have to tell you I loved the time my son John and I spent together with you. The entire time we spent at TOHO was a blast of fun. He caught some big bass that morning. I''ll never forget when you showed him how to set the hook with that shiner on the other end. He ripped it so hard that he pulled a buck bass over the top of the boat 20 feet and the fish landed in the opening of the creek mouth. Then we moved a bit to the Spanish hydrilla beds and then you set him up to catch the big one. I was so proud at that moment and I owe it to you Bill. What an excellent time we had. Redneck fishing can sure be fun. I have no plans to be back at Disney soon but I remember quite well how I felt fishing in Central Florida. Let''s keep in touch. I will send you the picture attachment of John and the big one he caught this week perhaps. Dropped off camera at Wal-Mart...Never got it back but I swear tomorrow.

From: Chi-Town Zed - I booked our fishing trip with Cptn. Bill for early August and we had an AWESOME expierience!!! I was a little worried about it being the begining of the hottest time of the year but Cpt Bill GUARANTEED a great time and boy did he come through! There is no more informative, people friendly person than Cpt Bill. He knew exactly where to go and took the time to tell us what to do get those big bass out!! If I had to mention any downfall from this outing it would be that I ruined the rest of fishing year back home in Chicago because I have NEVER pulled out any fish like I did that day. This was our fist time out with Cpt Bil and it will NOT be our last. HIGHLY RECOMMENED!!!

Your Great help and the fishing made this trip the BEST fishing trip in the last 40 years fishing in Florida.

Will be calling you for more fishing when we come down to St Cloud again.
