Welcome and thanks for visiting Trophy Bass Expeditions of Central Florida! We are located in Ocala, Florida in the "Bass Capital of the World" section of Marion and Putnam Counties in North Central Florida. We specialize as a Florida Trophy Bass Fishing Guide Service on the following world famous fisheries: Rodman Reservoir and the adjoining Ocklawaha River between Ocala and Palatka, Florida. The St.Johns River from Astor to Jacksonville, Florida including Lake George. The Suwannee and Withlacoochee Rivers on the western side of the state. Orange and Lochloosa Lakes and the surrounding waters of Gainesville, Florida and numerous other Ocala National Forest and Florida waters.

My name is Sean Rush and I am a FULL TIME USCG licensed and insured Florida Trophy Bass Fishing Guide with over 29 years guiding and 39 years angling experience on these remarkable waters. I am blessed to operate perhaps one of the busiest Florida Bass Fishing Charter Services and am on the water over 300 days per year! I average between 300 and 340 guided bass fishing charters per year which is more than triple my closest competitor on my home waters. So by choosing my guide service you get unmatched time on the water and hyper accurate knowledge of water conditions that my competitors simply can’t provide. My specific area of specialty comes as a Rodman Reservoir Trophy Bass Fishing Guide. Legendary Rodman Reservoir has for decades been deemed by every bass fishing publication and authority imaginable as one of the top trophy bass lakes in the world. I believe this lake gives an angler of any skill level perhaps the best shot of landing a hulking 10 pound plus bass! Perhaps the best chance anywhere. The large number of giant Florida largemouth bass landed here annually seems unmatched. From the 17.23 pound bass caught by a Virginia fisherman in 2000 which nearly clipped the official state record, to the numerous 16 plus pound bass landed by local anglers, your next cast could literally be that fish of a lifetime! BOOK WITH ME AND YOU WILL FISH WITH ME! We are NOT a guide referral service. Please visit our "Important Tips to Consider When Selecting a Guide" page for some helpful hints on guide selection.

My headquarters are centrally located roughly less than 60 minutes from Jacksonville and Orlando and a mere 40 minutes from Daytona Beach, Gainesville and The Villages in the heart of Florida's horse country. This locale offers both our in state and out of state clients access to what is unquestionably some of this country's most legendary bass fishing! The area offers a unique old Florida charm and beauty, accompanied by American Bald Eagles, Osprey, Alligators, Manatee and too many aquatic waterfowl and fish species to list here. Perhaps best of all it is far removed from the noise and traffic of a bustling city. So whether in Jacksonville or Orlando on business or vacation, in Daytona for one of the many nationally prestigious events, or just trying to decide on which Florida Bass Fishing Guide Service to choose to catch that trophy bass of a lifetime, why not choose Trophy Bass Expeditions of Central Florida for a truly memorable fishing experience on some of the states most pristine and spring fed waters!
