Customer Testimonials

Here's what some of our wonderful customers had to say about our Florida Trophy Bass Guide Service! We can gladly supply reference information for any of the customers listed below.

I have been fishing with Sean Rush since 2010. Let the facts speak for themselves. I've caught a 9lb 2oz, a 9lb 15oz, a 10lb 1oz, and a TrophyCatch Florida "Hall of Fame"bass certified by the game commission at 13lb 14.08oz (we weighed her at 14lb 1oz that morning on a Boga Grip -Sean). My wife on her 2nd fishing trip ever caught a 10lb 3oz bass. I went with my buddy Rick for 3 days of fishing and he ended up catching a 10lb 5oz bass. If you are after BIG BASS, Sean is the guide to fish with. He is the best out there and I've fished with many over the years. -Bob Williams from Alloway, NJ

If you're looking for a first class experience to fish for bass in Florida look no further.

Sean with Trophy Bass Expeditions is the only person I use when fishing anywhere near him in Florida. He sets an example for guides everywhere; he is on time, courteous, his boat is always clean and ready, but most of all he is passionate about you catching fish. I have brought my son, friends, and business customers to fish with Sean and they all put the experience at the top. We always catch fish but some of the memories that stand out are the time my son caught a 10lbs 7oz fish. On another trip my buddy and I caught 51 fish with three of them over 10lbs. I fish regularly at home in Kentucky and a big fish here might be the smallest fish you catch all day with Sean. There is nothing like fishing with Sean. -Joe Kelley from Louisville, KY

Fishing at Rodman is a marvelous experience! Fishing with Sean Rush is the "icing on the cake". He has a very comfortable boat, his rods and reels are first class, he knows the area very well. Sean knows where to find the fish, he can "talk you through" landing them if need be. The last time we fished with him. I caught a beautiful 8 pounder, and Emory caught a gorgeous 11 and a half pounder! Sean is passionate on "catch and release" and I appreciate that. I highly recommend fishing with Sean for Big Florida Bass. We had such a great time, we have already scheduled an October and a February trip. -Royce Cook from Mount Dora, FL

Two or more times a year I bring a crowd of old friends to Rodman to fish and enjoy the outdoors. We have been coming to the area since it was impounded and fished with more guides than I can remember. Since being introduced to Sean Rush we have used him on every trip I have done. He is most accommodating to my friends, has great equipment and knows the lake like no other. We consistently boat 25 to 35 bass per trip and some big ones up to 10.75 pounds! He is always able to put us ‘on the fish' and show us a good time! If you're going to go to Rodman, make it a point to allow enough time to book Sean, You will have the fishing experience of your life! -Steve Barrett from Marietta, GA

I have had the opportunity of bass fishing with Sean Rush of Trophy Bass Expeditions for the past several years. Each trip has provided fond memories to reflect upon for a lifetime. The last trip guided by Sean was particularly enjoyable. On this trip Sean guided a friend and I early one morning (while it was still dark) to an area where bass were staging for the pre-spawn. The initial cast was made at first light, a nice bass immediately inhaled the shiner, this set the stage for a fishing trip that will never be forgotten. We enjoyed non stop action until 11:57 a.m. when the last of our shiners were offered, it provided a nice 6 1/2-7 pound bass. That morning of fishing produced 116 bass averaging between 3 & 6 pounds. I have to wonder how many bass we could have caught that day if we would have had more shiners! I can't say enough good things about my fishing experiences with Sean. His many years guiding on Rodman Reservoir/Ocklawaha River complex have provided him with a working knowledge to catch fish even under the most challenging conditions on these waters! He knows where the fish live anytime of the year! Beyond that Sean is just a great guy to spend a day on the water with. -John Luce from Beaufort, SC

When Sean Rush uses the bye line "Trophy Bass" he means it. Living in Kentucky I try to bass fish in Central Florida 2 to 3 times a year. I always make sure to book a full day each trip with Sean. He has never disappointed. As a matter of fact my "Best Day" of fishing anywhere in the US was a day spent on the Rodman with Sean and my buddy Joe Kelley. It was a chilly January day and Sean had scouted a couple of honey holes. He was confident some monster bass were lurking and ready to feed. It wasn't long after day break that the fish starting getting aggressive and began slamming our shiners. It took a few big "Misses" before we got the hook sets down pat. Once we got the hang of it we were "Fish On" for the next several hours. Our total on the winter day was 51 large mouth landed all over 3 lbs including 3 slabs over 10 lbs. We probably missed another 15 lunkers but who are we to complain. If you like fishing for "Trophy Bass" I recommend you get on Mr. Rush's calendar. A day with Sean is great fishing and even better memories. -Mark Eley from Louisville, KY

I've bass fished for more years than I care to remember and I can truly say, my most productive and pleasurable fishing days in the last fifteen years have been the ones spent fishing with Sean Rush. I was too proud in my younger days to use a guide, and the couple that I had fished with left a lot to be desired. Seems they only wanted to finish the day and get on the next client, or didn't have the patience to make the trip a fun one. Then, I got lucky enough to fish with Sean Rush. Sean is one of the most pleasant people I've ever met. He is the same fellow every time you see him, fun to be around and never a in a bad mood. Now the pleasantry and fun is good, but when you combine that with the most knowledgeable, most experienced and hardest working guide in Florida, then you have the ultimate. Sean knows where to fish, how to fish and you feel like you are fishing with a fishing buddy when you are with him. I make at least two trips to fish with Sean every year. I guarantee you will not be disappointed after a trip with Sean. He will put you on the big fish every time! You are likely to catch the bass that you've always wanted hanging on you wall. -Bill Thomas from Slidell, Louisiana
