Chuck Pippin History
Hello, I am Chuck Pippin, Professional Bass Fisherman, Bass Charter, and co-founder of GuideFishing.com. I began my career as a Bass fishing guide in 1997 on West Lake Toho and the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, during my junior year at the University of Central Florida. After graduating, I moved to Clewiston, Florida and spent 5 years as a guide at Roland Martin’s Marina on Lake Okeechobee.
During this time, I began my career as a professional tournament angler fishing both the FLW Tour and the B.A.S.S. Southern Opens. In October of 2002, I moved back to the Orlando Florida area to continue my guiding career on West Lake Tohopekaliga, the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes and other Orlando area lakes. To this day, I continue to do approximately 300+ charters per year. I still thoroughly enjoy the sport of Bass fishing.

Two 12′ Minn Kota Talons
Minn Kota’s shallow water anchor system is called “Talons”. Only Talon has up to 15ˈ of anchoring, and User-Selectable Anchoring Modes that let you pick the perfect hold for any condition, from rough water to soft bottoms.
Minn Kota Ultrex 36v 112lbs. Thrust
Regardless of the weather, the 112lb Utrex gets me where I want to go. Sometimes faced with 30 mph winds, I need power and comfort so I can focus on the fishing. The foot pedal is so smooth, it makes long days on the water a breeze.
Humminbird Helix 10&12 MEGA SI G3N
Guide fishing requires a higher understanding of what’s going on below the surface. This is why we choose Humminbird Helix imaging products. We find the fish and stay on the fish year-round.
When you book a charter, we supply all of your fishing tackle, rods, reels, & lures. However, please feel free to bring your own if you like. Here is a review of some of the tackle provided on the boat.
13 Fishing Concept “Z” Casting Reels
The first-ever high-performance casting reel manufactured with zero ball bearings. Smooth reel that bomb casts. Most of our guests say they love how well this reel fits in their hand. At the end of a long day their hands do not cramp up and their arm isn’t tired. This is due to the ergonomics and lightweight of the reel. Another important feature is the drag settings and that this reel has zero ball bearings.
13 Fishing Casting & Spinning Rods
The perfect balance between form and function. Super lightweight for long days and very sensitive. The rods and reels are custom matched for whatever bait you happen to be throwing that day. You will immediately notice how much feel you get from these rods. You can almost feel the bass looking at your lure. Our guests love the lightweight and castability even in strong winds.
