Spotted Tail Orlando Fishing Charters

Spotted Tail Orlando Fishing Charters is the name to remember if you want to take on Florida’s top inshore gamefish. Located just an hour’s drive from Orlando, Captain John Kumiski can get you out catching fish in the famous Mosquito Lagoon and be back in time for lunch!

Capt. John specializes in light tackle and fly fishing trips, combing the local lagoons in search of Redfish, Seatrout, Snook, and Black Drum. The Mosquito, Indian River, and Banana River Lagoons are all within easy reach and are home to some real monsters. On calm days, you can even fish nearshore Atlantic spots for Tarpon, Cobia, King Mackerel, and Sharks!

In order to get the most out of these legendary waters, you’ll need an adaptable boat loaded with the best equipment around. That’s exactly what you’ll get with Capt. John’s 17’ Mitzi Skiff. The boat is loaded with a full array of safety gear to make your trip safe and stress-free. She can carry up to 3 anglers in comfort and cruises at speed thanks to her clean-burning Yamaha engine.

The boat is stable enough to fish open water when the weather’s calm. Head into the shallows, and the vessel really comes into her own. Her shallow draft lets you get deep into the skinny waters while her stealthy trolling motor means the fish will never hear you coming. Whatever you’re after, you can fight it with confidence, knowing you’re using quality tackle and the very best bait, lures, and flies.

This is your chance to experience a slice of Florida’s famous inshore angling. Capt. John will tailor every trip to suit you and your group and will even fillet your fish at the end of the day. So whether you’re in town on business or you’re taking the kids to see Mickey Mouse, make sure you save some time to get out on the water. You won’t regret it!

About the Captain

John Kumiski
Titusville, Florida, United States
Member since September 2014
I love my anglers. I treat them, and the other fishermen I share the water with, the way I would like to be treated. Being human I sometimes err. If I upset you please let me know. I will apologize and do my best to make it right. I started guiding part-time in 1988, and since January of 1996 have been making a living by fishing, writing about fishing, selling photographs of fishing, and giving classes and seminars about fishing.
