Awesome Fishing Charter - Lakeland

East Lake Parker Drive
Lakeland FL, United States

Awesome Fishing Charters provide unforgettable Bass targeting adventures in Lakeland, Polk County, Florida. If you are after catching a trophy Bass then you’ve come to the right place. Some of the lakes are conveniently located just 30 miles south of Disney World, Orlando.

Polk County consists of 213 square miles of water and is home to too many lakes to name here. However, there is no too many lakes when it comes to fishing. This area is rich in Largemouth Bass and Bluegill, and they are pretty much present in all of the lakes. Depending on where the fish have been reported, is where you will go.

The lakes you can visit include Lake Kissimmee, Winter Haven Chain Of Lakes, Parker lake, Lake Walk In The Water, Crooked lake and many others. You can use conventional and fly fishing methods to catch the fish, and will mostly use shiners for bait. You can buy them at $8 a dozen, and they must be pre-ordered, but are worth the investment. On average, you will use 5-6 shiners per trip.

The charter is operated by Captain Keiland Smith who is an expert at Bass fishing and fly fishing. By combining patience with a love of fishing, he has a become a master at catching the world’s best freshwater fish. And a great teacher too. He has been fishing on the fly since he was a little boy, so it’s no surprise he knows every trick in the book on how to cast for and reel in the fish.

Awesome Fishing Charters will take you fishing in a 20 foot Hughes flats boat, powered by a 115 HP Yamaha V Max engine, with a whopping top speed of 45 miles. You will be whisked to the most productive grounds on this safe vessel without wasting any time. It also features a wireless trolling motor for the shallow water, and a livebait well.

Your trip to the Disney World does not have to be all about the rides and trailing after your super excited kids - you can have a fun day too! Just 30 miles from Disney World is where Lake Kissimmee is located, and you could be back in time for lunch.

About the Captain

Keiland Smith
Lakeland, Florida, United States
Member since February 2016
I have been a lifelong fisherman of Florida and a Fly fisherman since the age of eight, cutting my tooth of Largemouth Bass on the fly. I started guiding Freshwater for the Village Grader Orvis Fly Shop in Lakeland, Florida. Started teaching Fly tying in the 80’s with the Lakeland Fly tiers and started guiding saltwater for Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, and Trout. Favorite species are the Florida Snook. Night time fishing lit structures with a Snook are a specialty, too. I am keen on teaching the Do’s and Don’t’s of Snook fishing to children of the ages of 8 and plus. I have guided to two IGFA International Game World Records in my career and have also been the host of Awesome Fishing Radio over 16 years starting on the AM Radio Dial and moving to the Podcast and iPhones Podcast.
