Guide Bio

I created this service after years of networking with the best of the Kissimmee fishing guides and Orlando area bass fishing guides. A complete outdoor outfitter service, I offer largemouth bass fishing in central Florida. I also offer championship golfing and wildlife airboat excursions with all the special touches to make each trip not easily forgotten. Being an avid outdoorsman since childhood, I recognize the special need and desire of others seeking their great outdoor adventure.

I first learned fishing from my father. He also taught me to respect the outdoors and what it has to offer. I have been fishing all over the country since 1962, but now make my home on Lake Weohyakapka (Walk-in-Water) since 1989. I employ a network of only the finest Orlando area bass fishing guides. I specialize in trophy largemouth bass fishing in central Florida (the fishing capital of the world).

Before moving here, I hosted the Southern Outdoorsman TV fishing show, which aired out of Knoxville. There have been many articles written on my successful techniques as both a tournament fisherman and a fishing guide in various sporting magazines. I have weighed fish in at tournaments all over the country. A special time was when I qualified for the 2003 Stratos Boats World Championship.

I have previously fished with such distinguished fishermen as the former president of Abu Garcia, Porter Waggoner, Jerry Reed, Tom Mann, Tom Mann Jr., Neil Bonnet and Davey Allison, just to mention a few. I also worked for Abu Garcia as the Assistant Director of Tournaments and Promotions for several years. This experience taught me everything there is to know about spinning and baitcasting reels.

Instead of tournaments, I now prefer teaching others about nature. I love to watch the joy on the faces of children and adults alike when they catch their first Florida largemouth black bass!

Capt Dick Loupe's Reviews

    I just wanted to thank Capt. Dick Loupe for a wonderful day of fishing on Lake Kissimmee. I have been on a couple other trips with professional guides on other south Florida lakes, but they don’t hold a candle to Capt. Dick’s knowledge and personality. He’s a true professional whose only desire is that his client enjoys his trip to the utmost. A true professional and quite a character to boot!! Thanks for a totally enjoyable trip. On my next trip to Tampa to visit my daughter, I’ll definitely be contacting you again.

    I want to thank Capt Dick for a great charter this past weekend, caught 12 nice bass. Capt. Dick made the trip so memorable. It was a Birthday present for me and it was the greatest present I could have been given. The reason was Capt. Dick. His knowledge of Bass Fishing alone was worth the trip but mostly his sincere personalty to make sure you catch a fish and have a good time. I always wanted to go on a charter with a professional as a bass fisherman for 50 years and now that bucket list item can be checked off and I’m planning my next trip with my son with Capt. Dick.
    Thank you so much for a great day
