What time is best for the bass trip?– 7am is our recommend start time if it is available on our booking system for your desired date. 9am start time is available as a mid morning start high success is still to be found especially in the cooler months. Afternoon trips are popular for folks who have morning plans and looking to go later in the day. They can be productive as well but during the warmer months thunderstorms are likely in the afternoon.
What will we use for bait on the bass trip?– Majority of our charters we use live Wild shiners. We highly recommend live bait for the best possible experience for size of bass and quantity. Artificial trips are optional but not always as productive as our shiner trips.
What does live bait cost?– Live Wild shiners are a separate charge from the charter. Prices vary depending on the season and availability. Call for current shiner pricing. Typically 3-4 dozen shiners will supply 2 anglers for a half day trip. Captain Grady will pick the bait up the morning of the charter and the total is added with the remaining balance of the trip.
Do you provide rods and reels?– Yes, all the equipment is provided with the charter. The only additional charge is for livebait.
Where do we meet? Captain Grady guides primarily on the Harris Chain of lakes and surrounding lakes in the Eustis, Leesburg and Mount Dora area. Captain typically has a recommendation on specific lakes for the charter. Captain Grady will contact you with a boat ramp address before your trip.
