These saltwater lagoons hold several species of fish including redfish, sea trout, snook, tarpon and the tripletail above. While visiting the Orlando area and it's theme parks Disney, Epcot, Animal Kingdom or Universal Studio's and Island of Adventure, it will be a rewarding day to relax in the Florida sunshine on the Space Coast near Kennedy Space Center and the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. Pack up your bags and fishing rod and head out with your family and friends today for an Inshore fishing trip near Orlando, Florida.
On Florida's coast, there are plenty of inshore fishing opportunities in the many bays, inlets, tributaries, marshlands and shallow sea grass areas behind the ocean front dunes that line our coastline. Directly east of Orlando between the beach and the mainland are vast saltwater lagoons that stretch north and south along the seaboard from Biscayne Bay in Miami toward Jacksonville and beyond. Inshore fishing is a great alternative to it's opposite of offshore fishing out of Port Canaveral.
Well equipped fishing guides take their customers out in high performance fishing boats known simply as flats boats. "Flats" is a name often used to describe shallow water sea grass beds and sandbar areas that line many of the shorelines of the lagoons. These fast and light skiffs are the best choice for getting to the fishing holes quickly and safely. Each are equipped with livewells, rod storage and typically have a poling platform that allows your guide to see greater distances in pursuit of shallow water predator fish like redfish, snook and sea trout.
