I am a full time saltwater flats fishing guide, licensed and insured, who specializes in light tackle sight fishing or fly fishing charters in Mosquito Lagoon, the Indian River Lagoon, Banana River Lagoon and the flats of east central Florida. These great year round fishing tours are located one hour east of Orlando, Kissimmee and Walt Disney World, and between Cocoa Beach to the south and Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach to the north. This is the best saltwater fishing near Orlando and Disney World.
You can catch redfish (red drum), seatrout, and black drum every month in these shallow salt waters. My light tackle flats fishing charters include all licenses, baits, and fishing equipment. Email me at - [email protected]
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 All you need to do is show up ready to fish. Often you are fishing in less than two feet of water and catching hard pulling fish. Enjoy calm protected waters with no chance of getting seasick. Despite the scary sounding name, there are no mosquitoes on the water.
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. This is about a one hour drive from the Orlando area and Disney.
My inshore saltwater flats fishing trips are designed to comfortably accommodate 1 or 2 anglers. Contact me to discuss parties of 3 or more. Fish from a clean and well maintained Hewes flats skiff with top quality rods and reels. I offer 4, 6, & 8 hour fishing charters year round. Your trip length can be modified during the day to meet your needs. You supply your own food and drink, I will supply all fishing equipment and licenses.
No experience necessary. All trips are catch, photo, and release only in an effort to preserve the fish stock for other clients and anglers in the future.
For detailed information see my saltwater fishing charter rates page. To book your fishing trip, call me at 321-229-2848 or visit my contact page. Charters can be booked for the next day, based on availability. If I am booked for the day you want to fish, I will help you find another fishing guide that meets your needs. Wildlife tours are also available for viewing manatee, dolphins and birds. Watch my video of manatee tours near Orlando.
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 Orlando fly fishing trip, you can experience the thrill of hard fighting fish in just inches of water. Anglers with less fishing experience or when fishing with kids, you can choose a bait fishing charter where you can catch a wide variety of fish including sharks, bluefish, jacks, pompano, ladyfish, sheephead, snapper, flounder, and more. This is easy and high volume catching. Nearshore Atlantic Charters target gamefish along the beaches during the summer and fall.
If you are in the Orlando are or are visiting 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 or Uber. Cocoa Beach fishing clients will be able to access all my fishing locations quickly. Some regions are 10 minutes away and the farthest is 30. Daytona Beach fishing and New Smyrna Beach fishing clients have a 20-30 minute drive to great backcountry flats fishing.
