Saltwater Fishing Guide Near OrlandoIf you are looking for light tackle fishing with spinning reels or fly fishing
gear, saltwater flats fishing charters near Orlando or the central Florida area,
you have come to the right place. I am a full time fishing guide specializing in
sight fishing the Mosquito Lagoon the Indian River and Banana River.
Located between Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach to the north, Cocoa
Beach to the south, and Orlando, Kissimmee and Disney World to the west,
this is central Florida's closest and best saltwater fishing.
The fishing in this part of the state is great all year round. Redfish, seatrout,
and black drum can be caught every month of the year. . Check out this short
video of people on my boat.
Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River Lagoon are the only places in the word
where redfish, also known as red drum or channel bass, live their entire lives
As your guide I will put you in the best position to cast your fly or lure to a
tailing redfish or trophy sized seatrout. For those looking for the ultimate light
tackle inshore flats fishing charter experience, the shallow clear water flats of
the Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River allow you to cast to fish you can see.
This is sight fishing at its finest. Watching the fish chase down and engulf
your lure adds to the excitement of the catch.
My guided backcountry charters are conducted from a clean and well
maintained Hewes 16ft skiff. You will be provided with top quality tackle as well
as all lures and live baits. The cost of thetrip also includes all licenses. I am a
licensed US Coast Guard Captain and hold a permit required to guide in the
waters of Mosquito Lagoon inside the Canaveral National Seashore & Merritt
Island National Wildlife Refuge.
During your trip, you have the chance to see a diversity of wildlife in addition to
the spectacular fishing. A variety of land and sea creatures including
bottlenose dolphin, manatee, and alligators call these waters their home. In
addition, there are an assortment of birds ranging from bald eagles and osprey
to pelicans, ibis, spoonbills, egrets, herons, storks, more. My Wildlife
Photography page has photos of some of the animals you may encounter.
For those who are new to saltwater fishing or want to learn to fish this area, I
also offer personal fishing instruction. Classes will be designed to fit the
needs of the angler. Tackle and bait selection, spin and fly casting, knot tying,
presentation, selecting productive waters, and fighting fish are a small sample
of topics I cover. Sharing my experience of fishing here for over 25 years and
being a full time fishing guide and charter captain will help you become a
better angler and catch more fish.
