Saltwater Fishing Charters by Lagooner Fishing Guides
Professional Orlando Fishing Guide
Full-Time Saltwater Inshore & Offshore
Tuesday October 17, 2017
Fishing with an professional Orlando fishing guide can be one of the most enjoyable experiences that central Florida has too offer. Whether you are in town on business or visiting Orlando's theme parks from Disney to Universal Studios, it's relaxing way to spend a day while fishing in the pristine saltwater lagoons minutes away from the Orlando International Airport. Traveling east approximately thirty eight miles from the airport will take you through Florida's cypress hammocks and live oak forest to the Indian River Lagoon or slightly northward to Mosquito Lagoon and it's saltwater estuaries filled with snook, tarpon, redfish and spotted sea trout. Our professional fishing guides will keep you busy fishing for these Orlando gamefish and soaking up that famous Florida sunshine. After a day of fishing with an expert guide, you can head to the beach for a relaxing day of sunbathing and swimming in the Atlantic Ocean at the renowned Cocoa Beach.
Full Time Professional with All the Credentials
Full-Time Professional fishing guides are a rare breed of people. There are many "part-time" anglers looking to make an extra buck or boat payment by taking unsuspecting customers out for a day of fishing. True professional fishing charter guides make it a daily part of their lives to keep up-to-date on not only the fishing, but the safety and comfort of their fishing customers. Lagooner Fishing Guides are Coast Guard Approved, hold Captain's Licenses and other documentation required to do business as required by National and State Laws. It's a Florida State requirement to have a fishing license and Florida offers a boat/guide license for professional charter captains. You must have an occupational license (Lagooner is an "S" Corporation) and maintain a commercial fishing license to take customers offshore for species like dolphin, snapper, grouper and mackerel. If a Charter Boat Captain does not have a fishing license to cover his customers, then customers must provide their own. Any decent fishing guide should have liability insurance encase someone gets hurt and it's mandatory to keep up-to-date on CPR and First Aid from the American Red Cross or other certified organization.
Modern Fishing and Boating Equipment
Lagooner has two boats provided by Action Craft High Performance Fishing Machines. Both are compliant and approved for operating in their respected locations inside of 100 miles of shore and with less than six customers. All tackle including rods and reels are modern St Croix Rods and Shimano or Penn Reels that are impeccably maintained.
Orlando's Top Professional Fishing Guide
Orlando Florida has the best inshore saltwater fishing in the state and being a professional fishing guide in this area has honed my fishing abilities to help anglers and customers become better at catching fish. If you come to the Orlando are looking for a pro-guide that sincerely wants to show you a great time of fishing and build a relationship with, please consider us and setup a charter for a day of fishing in near Orlando's theme parks and minutes away from the Orlando International Airport.
As always I look forward to hearing from many of you soon, if you need to contact Captain Gina and set up a charter please call her at (321) 868-4953 or just fill out the form on the left.

October - 2017 Fishing Report
The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.
Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.

Money so well spent!! - I treated a couple of dear friends to a charter fishing trip with Lagooner. I have to say it was money so well spent! Not like any charter I had ever been on before. Richard paid personal attention to every detail. Making sure we had the absolute best time and moved us around to follow fish of every type. This allowed for some simple easy fishing along with some wild challenges. I can't think of what else would have made this trip a better experience. My guests had never been treated so well on a charter they said. Yes you can find cheaper but I would never, ever try to save a couple of dollars and not have this kind of experience and memories.!
