Orlando Saltwater Fishing
Inshore and Offshore Fishing in Central Florida
Tuesday October 17, 2017
Orlando's best saltwater fishing is minutes away in the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean basin on Florida's coastline. Whether you want a day of deep sea fishing or inshore shallow water lagoon fishing, Orlando has it all for you.
After visiting the theme parks, you might consider taking a day of fishing on the nearshore and offshore waters east of Orlando. A family vacation to the saltwater lagoons and beaches on Florida's east coast can be a nice way to unwind after waiting in long lines in the hot Florida sunshine.
Saltwater fishing is one of Florida's most popular and enjoyable activities. During the summer months there's mild hot weather and calm winds that allows anglers to conquer the ocean and look for big game peligic and benthic fish like cobia, sailfish, bonito, baraccuda, snapper, grouper and many other fun hard pulling species. Winter and cooler months will produce cold front patterns that make the fishing perfect on the inshore lagoons and bays. Inshore fish include redfish, sea trout, tarpon and snook in the shallow waters from mear inches to several feet deep. Our redfish can push the scales over 50 pounds and the prime season for big breeding redfish are during our late summer and early fall as they breed in the Banana, Indian and Mosquito Lagoons.
Fishing Inshore Saltwater
The photo shows two boats that are built for two specific uses... One is a flats boat or shallow water skiff made for moving anglers quickly across the skinny water lagoons and into the locations where redfish, sea trout and other inshore fish live and feed. The other boat is made for coastal fishing and can be used to fish on calmer days in the ocean for different game and opportunities that lie off our coastline in the ocean. Inshore fishing is a great way to spend a day with a friend or by yourself when your visiting the Orlando for business or pleasure. Captain Richard often finds himself fishing with a businessman that has an additional day for R&R. Many days are spent on the water with husbands & wives that are taking a weekend to do something different and more often there's a couple of buddies that just want to go out with Captain Richard and explore the lagoons in search of giant redfish or tarpon and sea trout. Whatever your situation is, an inshore trip when you're visiting Orlando is always a good time!
Offshore Saltwater Fishing
A faster paced fishing trip and one that requires some arm excersize is offshore or deep sea fishing off Orlando's east coast area near Cocoa Beach or Port Canaveral. Typically a summer time fishery, the ocean is calm and flat during the months from June thru September and you'll find Lagooner Fishing Guides speeding along the coastline looking for cobia, kingfish and possibly red snapper and grouper. Families love ocean fishing explains Captain Richard, I take small groups of people out all summer long and love to watch kids and their parents play tug-a-war with big ocean fish. It's always fun and there's usually a pretty fast paced fishery here in Orlando.

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.
