Kissimmee Fishing Charter

Experience the thrill of fishing the prolific waters of Florida out of Kissimmee! Kissimmee Fishing Charter will take you to the clear waters of Lake Tohopekaliga and help you make the most of your time in the beautiful scenery of the lake providing a first-class fishing experience.

Join Capt. Jonathan on his 20’ Pathfinder flats boat, designed specifically for Bass fishing. With a 150 HP engine, the boat can travel quickly around the local lakes to wherever the best fishing happens to be. There’s a trolling motor on the boat, allowing anglers to approach spooky fish. Up to 5 anglers are welcome on board.

You will be fishing with high-quality light tackle by Shimano and Penn and could be using both live bait and lures. Wild Shiners, one of the most effective Bass baits, are not included in the price of the trip and they cost $25 per dozen.

When you fish with Capt. Jonathan, you’ll mainly be targeting America’s most popular game fish and Florida’s state freshwater fish – the Largemouth Bass. Great tasting Crappies are also frequently targeted on Jonathan’s fishing charters.

You’ll have drinks on board, just make sure to bring some snacks to stay refreshed throughout the trip. Pack some sun protection as well, so you can relax and enjoy your time under the hot Florida sun, and you’re all set!

Situated within easy reach of Orlando, Kissimmee is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. So join Kissimmee Fishing Charter and explore these beautiful waters!

I was born and raised in Vero Beach, Florida, and have been fishing since the of age 5. I learned to appreciate fishing at a young age. I've been a USCG licensed captain for over five years and I love to teach other people how to fish and show them the fun of fishing. I fish almost every day to make sure I'll always be able to bring the clients the most action when they're fishing.
