Close Encounters Fishing Charters offers experienced and novice anglers alike a totally unique opportunity: to explore Orlando’s many Bass-filled lakes and creeks by casting off on a one-to-one personalized angling adventure!
Captain Xavier Groenendyk will be your Bass-fishing teacher. He’s the perfect person to show you around these waters, and will have you fishing them like a pro! He was born and raised in this area, with the famous Mosquito Lagoon as his backyard, and spent all his free time finessing his angling skills.
On this special trip, Capt. Xavier will use his years of experience and knowledge to help you learn and hone many different techniques that can be utilized to hook plenty of Bass – while having plenty of fun and filling your cooler at the same time.
This private trip is the perfect option for new anglers who want to learn the ropes, as well as more experienced fishermen who want to pick up some specialized Bass-fishing skills.
You’ll be casting your line from a 17’ high-performance flats fishing boat, with plenty of room for you and your captain. This vessel was designed with the ability to cross large lakes in comfort, yet still get into the tightest and shallowest creeks, as well as hard to reach bayous.
Your vessel is decked out with top-quality navigational and safety equipment, as well as a wireless trolling motor, which will come in handy when you’re cruising shallow waters for that trophy Bass! There’s also plenty of room for top-quality fishing equipment, including a variety of lures, which are all included in your trip.
You’ll experience the perfect combination of hands-on action and one-on-one advice on this trip. Treat yourself or your favorite fishing fanatic to a truly one-off angling adventure aboard Close Encounters Fishing Charters!
