Fowl Attitude Outfitters strive to give you the very best experience possible! Captain Janot Vilardell always gives his best to put his guests on fish. He knew he wanted to be a fisherman before he turned five – talking about determination! He’s experienced and knowledgeable and just what you need for a successful day on the water.

To ensure everybody can fish in comfort and get the captain’s necessary attention, the trips are limited to 4 guests. The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 21’ Carolina Skiff that’s powered by a 130 HP Yamaha engine. The shallow draft of the boat makes it easy to drift through the shallow waters, which especially comes in handy for gigging trips.

You can spend the day fishing the famous Tsala Apopka chain of lakes for Bass, or wait for the sun to go down and visit the flats and reefs, targeting Redfish, Grouper, Snapper, Flounder, Sharks, and many more. Snorkeling and spearfishing are also available but make sure to request the equipment in advance.

Your captain will supply necessary fishing equipment, fresh water, and also clean your catch after the trip at no extra charge. Feel free to bring your snacks or anything else you might need.

Fowl Attitude Outfitters has the goal of making a perfect day on the water for you. They are here for you year round, so the only thing you need to do is decide when you want your next adventure to start.
