ABOUT THE INSCTUCTORS

Captain Scott Taylor is the Captain of the Guy Harvey Camp Mack Pro Team. He specializes in fishing for Central Florida trophy largemouth bass with artificial baits. He will also help guests who wish to fish with live shiners. His most popular trips focus on fishing with artificial baits while occasionally using shiners to entice and fire-up a few gigantic fish.

Captain Scott Taylor is a “Catch & Release” bass fishing guide service. If a guest catches a trophy-sized fish they want to keep for a wall mount, all measurements and photos will be taken so a replica can be made. He takes great care to preserve our resources so that future generations can share what we enjoy. Charters are for 1-3 persons.
