FYAO Saltwater Media Group

FYAO Saltwater Media Group offers flats boat fishing and kayak fishing charters on the Treasure Coast of Florida.

If you are after something different on your next Florida holidays, you have found the right place.

Take your fishing buddy and head out to Indian River Lagoon on a 17’ flats boat or a 12’ kayak for an exciting adventure. Check what is biting in its fertile waters and target whatever patrols the waters.

Test yourself in spinning, jigging, and popping for Trout, Snook, Permit, Ladyfish, Flounder, Black Drum, Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, and many more.

Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture the Treasure Coast’s wildlife. It is common to spot manatees and dolphins, otters, sea turtles, blue herons, and who knows what else.

Whichever method suits you best, your guide will assist you and work hard to make sure you have a great day on the water. Your kayak fishing guide charter will include all the tackle, rods, and reels that you will need.

You can also store your electronics in a dry box. Just bring a Florida Saltwater License, appropriate clothing, and whatever food and drinks you may need.

Join FYAO Saltwater Media Group and explore the amazing adventure that flats fishing can be!
