Orlando 67 Days of Smiles – Stacey and Kyle are a couple life long friends and are now friends of ours. Originally from Michigan now residing in New York, they enter a promotional contest offer by Orlando and won the whole thing!
As winners of the Orlando 67 Days of Smiles contest Stacey and Kyle have gotten to experience just about every attraction in Orlando. Our goal was to bring the Orlando Outdoors to Stacey and Kyle, so what better way then to experience the two most impressive indoor and outdoor activities in Orlando, World famous bass fishing with Florida’s largest fishing guide service “BASSonline Fishing Outfitter” and to shop till you drop, with the World’s largest Hunting and Fishing retailer, “Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World.”
The excursion started by meeting at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World at 5:45am. We all know how important it is to look the part, so after distributing the FREE hats and shirts Bass Pro graciously offered. We headed off to one of Orlando’s most popular big bass lakes, Lake Toho world famous for producing trophy bass. We knew in the back of my minds, even if the fish didn’t bite the beautiful scenery and wildlife would leave a stunning impression.
When we arrived at the lake everyone genuinely sounded and looked very excited to get started. After the guides put the boats in the water and everyone toured the Big Toho Marina, off we went in the boats where the real adventure was just about to begin.
Once we arrived at our first location, it took no time at all before the first fish was reeled in. That one came from the guys boat, yes it was the guys against the girls for now. After several more fish were caught the kidding back and forth escalated to lots of laughter. Thankfully all went as planned, the fish bit and the bald eagles flew overhead as if they were watching the whole thing. Bass were caught by everyone and yes some fish were missed(Stacey) but it was all in fun and part of an Orlando Outdoor adventure that everyone will never forget.
Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
