Largemouth Bass Lodge Recommendations needed

Net 30Net 30 Posts: 1,010 Officer
Looking to take a couple of clients out for a couple days of bass fishing. Any recommendations for a GOOD lodge, high quality, good guides. Can't cut corners with these guys so 1st class is a must. Would like to stay in FL but willing to travel out of state for the right place. October or November dates.

    I know there are some trophy bass in these lakes. I don't know much about the accomodations compared to other lodges. It does say Mid-November is some of the best fishing for big bass.

    There are some good guides here, but I don't think we have the accomodations you are looking for.

    Some great guides in Florida, but, if you have some topshelf clients and don't mind spending the money do a search for Mexcio bass fishing lodges. There is nothing in the U.S. like the Mexican bass experience. I've had friends who have gone and they say it's the fishing equivalent of an Argentina dove or duck hunt but closer and cheaper. I don't do alot of bass fishing anymore, and would normally spend my trip money on something more exotic like an international bonefish or roosterfish adventure, but after hearing their stories about the bass lodges down there I'm thinking hard about going. It's a once-in-a-lifetime trip for the lucky ones.

    Thanks for all the info. so far.....dumb question from a saltwater guy: when's the best time of year to fish for bass?

    For bedding fish, Late January all the way through February in Florida.March and April farther north.
