When thinking about Orlando, Florida you might go right to thoughts of Disney and Universal, but what many soon begin to realize is that the fishing in and around Orlando is some of the best on the planet. Being nestled close to both coasts of Florida, as well as having quick access to various freshwater fishing spots – you may really want to consider bringing out your inner angler on your next Orlando vacation.
Florida is known for bass fishing, especially in central Florida. There are lots of local guides who bring guests nearly everyday of the year into these amazing fishing holes for largemouth bass and their lively cohabitants. But of the two Florida coasts, the east coast of Florida is the shorter of the two drives, and this opens up a whole new world of Orlando fishing opportunities.
When you look at coastal fishing in areas like the mosquito lagoon, you will find site fishing opportunities for species like snook, redfish, sea trout, cobia, and even tarpon.
Nearly all of these inshore guides are locals and veterans of these coastal areas that get you in an easy day on the water for just yourself or the entire family.
The other option that exists is offshore fishing in areas like Cocoa Beach or off of Port Canaveral. Here you will find that you are close to the Gulf Stream, deep waters, and an ever active fishery that will get you on some epic game fish.
So, no matter your flavor of fishing you’d be most happy with, Orlando fishing and the areas that surround it are sure to meet your needs. Most of these guides and charter companies book up fast, so it is wise to get with them and reserve a spot as soon as you plan your Orlando vacation.
