Captain Dean Herdman

Welcome to One Cast Away I am Captain Dean Herdman owner and operator of Bass Professional Guide Service and a USCG licensed and fully insured Captain since 2005. I have been guiding anglers in search of huge Florida largemouth bass at Stick Marsh Farm 13 since 2007. I am avid tournament angler and a knowledgeable fishing guide that loves providing clients with a trip of a lifetime, my goal is to show you what it is like to fish like a true bass fishing professional.

Whether you are looking for that elusive double digit lunker or simply want a relaxing day on the water to leave your busy life behind for a while, I am here to help. I will make every effort to ensure a high quality experience. No matter if you are an expert or a novice I want you to feel like a pro!

Your adventure will include an exhilarating ride on an ultra comfortable 21′ Legend A211 bass boat and the use of my top of the line professional quality equipment and tackle. Couple this with an unrivaled natural environment full of wildlife and beauty on a world class fishery and you have the makings for experiencing what I consider to be trophy bass fishing paradise.

Browse through the website, read a little of the history of Stick Marsh Farm 13,  see what my clients say about their fishing experiences, and definitely take a look at the gallery to get an idea of what you have been missing.

Tori and I finally got back to Maryland today. I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the day of fishing we spent with you. It really was the highlight of our trip. Tori has talked about it every day. We fished several other places during our time in Florida but nothing compared to the fabulous time we had with you. Thank you so much.

I really enjoy going fishing with Onecastaway’s Capt. Dean Herdman . He really knows where the fish are and what to use to get them to hit. Going out with Dean is not like a typical customer / Capt. relationship, it’s more like fishing with an old friend you haven’t seen for a while. Deans’ knowledge of the lakes we’ve fished, his skill to consistently put you onto Big Bass, coupled with his sense of humor and professionalism always make for an excellent experience. I highly recommend taking a guided fishing trip with Bass Professional Guide Service.
