Another week has passed and fishing continues to be great. On a 4 hour fishing trip my guests have been catching 12-20 fish. The fishes sizes continues to vary from 1 lb to 6lbs. Soft plastics seem to be doing the best for catching these bass. Super flukes in watermelon red, and silver have been working the best. A close second has been green and black sinkos, weightless; these sinkos are producing the bigger fish that are caught. The month has brought warm weather, but at times some strong winds, making fishing with weightless plastics a little more challanging. The water temperature is around 72 degress and the fish have been very active even after a cold front has come through.

This past week, between trips I was able to take out my wife, brother and sister-in-law out for a few hours. They have very little fishing experience but in total they caught 9 fish in less than 2 hours. My wife leading the way with 5 solid keepers. I really enjoyed spending that time with them we were all very relaxed after spending those few hours away from the attractions we went to earlier that week.

Orlando Trophy Bass

This is my first blog and I am very excited. I hope people get something out of this blog and to be honest I hope to get some business.

I am very dedicated to raising as much money for Cystic Fibrosis as I can. Trying to gain sponsors and business partners to joining my battle. This though has been tough, a bad economy, and not having proper contacts makes this very difficult. It also does not help by not getting what seem like any help from the place I donate so much money towards. Despite this I am still raising money, so far $500 has been raised and by the end of this month I hope to add another $150 to that total.

I big reason why I am trying so hard to make this work, is because I believe on day this money will find a cure. I love my wife, and everything in my life, and I don't want that to end to soon. I also want this to work because I want other CF patients to have the chance to live a great life like I have.

Yesterday I had a fishing trip with a 8 y/o who to has CF. This was the first time he and his dad have gone bass fishing. I am happy to say he caught several fish, one weighing 5 lbs. He did this all on his own which made it even more exciting. He was so happy, it just helped me realize why I am fighting to stay alive and make this business succeed. Not only was I an inspiration to him, but his dad as well. He was able to ask me all about my treatments and how I have been able to stay relatively healthy; he to was inspired after our fishing trip.

A little more about my guide service. I am located in Orlando, Fl, and fish on some of the best bass fishing lakes in the world. I am mainly fishing on a private lake that is loaded with fish. On a good day my guests have caught over 25 fish. My worst day on this lake was during a day a major front was moving in with 35 mph winds, and higher gusts, but we still caught 5 decent fish. I fish out of a 16 ft bass boat, and have all the gear needed to catch that trophy bass. What makes this place even more special is that I am the only guide on the lake, and its located minutes away from Disney.

Like I said I am using this to promote my fishing so more fishing updates to come.
