Orlando Fishing Charters & Mosquito Lagoon Fishing

A fisherman holding a black drumFor those visiting the area or looking in from Orlando, the Indian River & Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Charters are a sight-fisherman’s dream come true, with expansive shallow flats. These pristine estuaries are a short drive from Orlando, Fl. Located just 45 minutes east of Orlando International Airport, 1 hour south of Daytona International Speedway and 45 minutes north of world famous Cocoa Beach, lies the city of Titusville, which rests in the shadows of Kennedy Space Center. It is from here that Capt. Mark offers Orlando fishing charters light tackle inshore sport-fishing trips for redfish and trout all year. Inshore fishing for tarpon, snook, jacks, ladyfish and black drum are also available on a seasonal basis.

Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Charters for Orlando Visitors

The awe and inspiration of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River Lagoon is health food for the soul. Bottlenose dolphin, manatees and alligators often swim with us as wading birds stalk the shorelines and pelicans and seagulls fly by or dive around us. While the fishing may be the highlight of your trip the wildlife will be an incredible bonus!

Our Fishing Charters

For those of you looking to target larger game fish Capt. Mark also offers near shore trips. The beaches off of Cocoa Beach offer a wide variety of seasonal game fish. Kingfish, tarpon, cobia, and triple tail are just some of the hard fighting varieties available. All near shore trips leave out of Port Canaveral which is just a short 40 minute drive from Orlando, FL.

Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Charters & Orlando Fishing Charters Details Fishing trips may be custom tailored to YOUR needs or preferences and skill levels. The use of live or natural baits as well as artificial lures will be employed as necessary or at the Client’s request. Capt. Mark will do “whatever it takes” to put fish in the boat for his diehard clients. If kicking back and letting the fish come to you is more your style Capt. Mark can tailor your trip to that laid back attitude.

For those who truly want to learn the ropes of flats fishing, instructional charters are offered. Here, emphasis is placed on the teachings of flats fishing rather than the catching. This will effectively shave years off of the learning curve of the trial and error method of becoming an accomplished angler!

The Orlando Fishing Experience

Our Orlando guests can expect a fishing trip that caters to both family and excitement. Keeping the rods busy is Captain Mark’s specialty, and when first-time clients fish with us, they become lifelong clients. As part of your Orlando visit you really should consider a fishing trip here on the nearby coast. Aside from fishing, you can expect to view wildlife, sea life, and create a memory that will add to the value of your Orlando vacation. If you’re bringing the kids, Captain Mark will ensure they have a great time both in the boat and on their fishing rods.

What kind of fish can we catch?

For inshore, Redfish, Snook, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, or Black Drum are the fish we often target. We often see additional catches of snapper, jack crevalle, small sharks, and a fun favorite for the kids – lady fish. There are also many other species that inhabit these lagoon’s – something is biting all year. For nearshore Kingfish, Cobia and (bigger) Tarpon are the usual goals – but this part of the fishery can offer many surprises for those who wish to take this trip.

Can we keep the fish?

Most of our targeted species have bag and size limits and/or season dates. As long as your catch follows along with the state’s set rules, YES – you can keep your catch if you desire to do so.

How much is it to go fishing from Orlando?

Our fishing charter rates start as low as $325 – See the full price list here.

Fishing Report

Titusville area Indian River Lagoon for mid-august

August 24, 2019

The highlight of this past week was treating my better half to an early morning fishing trip to the NIRL. We left the boat launch in near darkness and dropped off-plane a few miles away in barely twilight conditions. The water was calm and within a few minutes I spotted a pod of what I assumed was redfish rippling the surface of the water. I was poling quietly towards the ripples as Kim starts casting her Z-Man pearl colored Diezel Minnowz in the direction of our quarry. She connects only three casts into her day and we’re still not close…
