Here on the shallow inshore saltwater flats of east central Florida, you can catch redfish (red drum), seatrout, and black drum all year long. We target these fish with light spinning tackle or flyrods. I provide everything you need for your fishing trip except food and drink. Often you are fishing in less than two feet of water and catching hard pulling fish that can exceed 40 pounds. Enjoy calm protected waters with no chance of getting seasick. Whether you enjoy casting artificial lures or using natural bait, Central Florida Sight Fishing charters offers a trip for all ages and levels of experience. Check out the latest Central Florida Fishing Report to see what we have been catching. Most of my fishing charters are in the Mosquito Lagoon or north Indian River Lagoon which is inside the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.

I have over 25 years of experience fishing the salt waters of east central Florida. As your fishing guide, I guarantee a 100% effort to put my clients in the best position to catch fish. The Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River Lagoon are close to Orlando and Disney World and offer the best backcountry inshore saltwater flats fishing in central Florida. Many of my fishing trips are inside the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. In addition to the fish, you can also see manatee, dolphin, alligators, and a huge variety of wading and migratory birds on our waters.
Sight fishing charters involve stalking fish in the shallow waters of the Mosquito Lagoon or Indian River Lagoon using a push pole to propel the boat. Anglers stand on the casting deck and look for fish they can cast to. This adds excitement to the fishing experience as you can watch the fish bite your lure. For those wanting to go on a fly fishing trip, you can experience the thrill of hard fighting fish in just inches of water. Either way, you will quickly discover what makes saltwater fishing so spectacular.
If you are visiting the Orlando area while vising the Disney theme parks or maybe a convention, this is the closest saltwater fishing destination. The drive to the east coast is almost all highway. The majority of my Mosquito Lagoon redfish charter clients that fish with me are staying in or around Orlando, Walt Disney World and Kissimmee. A rental car will be required as there is no other form of transportation from Orlando to the fishing locations available except taxi. Clients staying in Cocoa Beach will be able to access all my fishing locations quickly. Some regions are 10 minutes away and the farthest is 30. Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach customers have a 20-30 minute drive to great backcountry flats fishing.
