About Your Trip

If you've been looking to whack some epic freshwater fish in South Florida, look no further and join Captain Roy for a Peacock Bass bonanza! Peacock Bass aren't really bass at all, but are a type of large cichlid that originate in South America, where they dominate warm freshwater environments in Brazil, Colombia, and elsewhere. They're invasive here in Florida, but they're loved by anglers for their insanely aggressive fighting and flashy yellow, green, and orange colors.

In addition to Peacocks, you can chase Largemouth Bass—the state freshwater fish of Florida—plus Cichlids, another remarkable invasive species that's a blast to catch. Cichlids are one of the coolest fish you can find in freshwater, and will hit on all kinds of bait and lures. With all these species, this trip is sure to be a blast!

Captain Roy will put his experience to work, guiding you to the best holes and canals where fish love to congregate. His 20' Stratos bass boat is ideal for fishing this warm, shallow water, and he has tons of helpful tips to make sure you're hooking as many fish as possible. He provides almost everything you need to hook that prize trophy. All you need to bring on this amazing trip is water, appropriate clothing, and your family and friends. No matter how much experience you have fishing, this trip will be one for the books.

I’m a local well-known tournament angler with many awards. I’ve been fishing in South Florida since I was 10 years old, targeting almost every species of fish. I also have young children of my own, so teaching others comes easy to me. I look forward to having you on board!

Captain Roy was an excellent guide. He took me and my 7 year old son all over Lake Osborne. We caught a bunch of Peacock and Striped Bass. He was very patient and extremely knowledgable. Highly recommend this service and will definitely be back the next time I am in Florida.

Roy is a very knowledgeable guide and easy to get along with. We had a memorable day on the water with Roy on Lake Ida, the suburban canals, and Lake Osborne, catching many Peacocks. I will book with Roy again in the future.

Captain Roy was fabulous! He put us on the fish, especially Peacock Bass, which we came to Florida to catch, all day! And, he took special care with my grandson to give him professional tips on HOW to catch the fish! We plan to return, and it will be with Captain Roy!

Captain Roy was amazing in every facet of our trip. He communicated all the pre-trip info, including dropping a pin for the exact location to meet. He knew all the fishing hot spots and we caught quite a lot of fish (mostly peacock bass). He baited out lines and taught us how to flip cast. He is also a great guy with great stories.
