Welcome to Orlando Fishing Charters! If you’re looking for a fishing charter that is just 40 minutes from Orlando, while on your vacation in sunny Florida, look no further!

So many of you out there would like to know what you can catch while fishing the local nearshore lagoon system. By far, the most popular is Redfish. Now there are also a lot of other species that inhabit the system that include Tarpon, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Sea Trout, Black Drum, and some tons of Dolphin. With that many fish that you can possibly catch, who does not want to go fishing?!

Fishermen that are wanting to do some nearshore fishing in Orlando can also hope to catch a large number of species as well while on a fishing charter. Kingfish, Wahoo, Cobia, and Tripletail are some of the main species that you’ll target while fishing nearshore (much like the famous Redfish that are caught while fishing inshore). In case you are unaware, these fish are also an amazing entrée for dinner table. There are very few fish that taste quite as well as these do.

The trip takes place on an 18’ Ranger flats skiff that accommodates up to 4 guests. The boat is powered by a 150 HP Suzuki engine and reaches the speed of 55 knots. You can count on reaching your fishing spot quickly and with ease. The boat features a live bait tank and navigational electronics.

All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. You only need to bring some snacks, drinks, and a bit of a positive attitude. Orlando Fishing Charters welcome you aboard!
