Family Style Fishing

Get ready for a freshwater adventure in Central Florida with Family Style Fishing! Your guide for the day, Allen Maddox, is a 3rd-generation angler and Florida native with a lifetime of experience fishing the lakes and rivers around Orlando. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing family trip or the ultimate freshwater challenge, your time on board will be tailored to fit your needs and preferences.

You’ll be fishing from a 21’ Sea Chaser bay boat, equipped with a wireless trolling motor, live bait tank, state-of-the-art navigational equipment, safety gear, and fishing tackle. The boat’s shallow draft is perfect for fishing rivers, lakes, and other low-lying areas and the deck is spacious enough to accommodate you and 3 other guests. Everyone can fish at the same time and kids of all ages are more than welcome aboard.

You’ll be targeting Largemouth Bass, Catfish, Crappie, and Sunfish while casting, jigging, and trolling. Allen also specializes in popping, drifting, and spinning so you can expect to switch up your style depending on what your target species is.

If the sun is too hot and you prefer night fishing, Allen also offers trips starting at 6:00 p.m. so you can fish while you enjoy the beautiful sunset. You’ll be provided with high-end rods and reels made by Penn and Abu Garcia. You can also buy live bait for an additional price of $30 a dozen. At the end of the day, your catch will be cleaned and filleted so it’s one step closer to becoming a delicious entrée!

You will need to purchase your own fishing license. Just be sure to arrive 15 minutes prior to departure and bring some sunscreen as well as your favorite food and drinks.

Allen Maddox has been fishing since he was old enough to hold his own rod and reel. He’s a 3rd-generation fisherman and Florida native and grew up fishing all the rivers and lakes of central Florida. He’s been running charters as a licensed captain since 2015 and before that, he used to manufacture underwater fishing lights. Being able to take families out on the water and show them a great time has become his favorite part of the job. He loves teaching beginners different fishing techniques, especially children, as there’s no greater feeling than passing that same passion down to the younger generation. Allen invites you to join him on an incredible adventure of freshwater fishing in Central Florida and get ready to catch some awesome fish with Family Style Fishing!
