Deep sea fishing rod on an Orlando fishing trip


When you make a list of the top things to do in Orlando besides theme parks, one thing immediately jumps to mind…fishing!  Orlando, the drinking community with a fishing problem, isn’t all about Mickey; it is home to some of the finest fishing spots in all of Florida.  Read on to learn about some of the best Orlando fishing spots!

Conway Chain of Lakes

With two lakes and four bodies of water, the Conway Chain of Lakes, winter is the best time for bass fishing here, but summer can be great as well.  Clear water and peppergrass makes this chain a big hit; however, with only one public boat ramp, there can be a bit of a wait during the popular times.

Lake Walk in Water

Although there is a strict catch and release program here, this could be the lake where you get the catch of a lifetime…just remember to bring a camera because you are only allowed to take home 3 bass, and all must be less than 15 inches long.  That said, the largemouth bass are plentiful at this beautiful fishing hole.

Lake Kissimmee

Lake Kissimmee remains one of central Florida’s most consistent Bass fishing spots! Best of all, since there are lots of places for them to hide, you can find some really old bass in this beautiful 44,000 acre lake.  But even if it’s a slow day, the beauty of the lake and its surroundings makes up for it all!

Orlando Fishing Charters

When it’s all said and done, though, the best way to find all the really hidden spots hopping with fish is to hire a guide, and Orlando offers some of the best Fishing charters around.  Captain Dean Puller from Gators Big Bass Guide Service is located not far from Disney World, so let the wife and kids visit Mickey while you explore Lake Tohopekaliga with this knowledgeable guide.  Or, hire Captain Tom Carver for one of the best Orlando Fishing trips to be found! He specializes in light tackle Inshore and Nearshore fishing 24/7, and kids are welcome too!  Finally, Central Florida Sight Fishing Charters promises the most exciting saltwater flats fishing trips, all catch, photo and release, for those looking for a kinder and gentler fishing expedition.
