Central Florida has three distinct fisheries, freshwater, saltwater inshore and deep sea fishing.  The best way to experience an outdoor fishing trip is to get in a boat and give it a try.  Locals are often equipped with their boats, tackle, and equipment, while others will opt for a guided experience on a fishing charter with a local expert.

As a charter captain myself, I’m going to recommend some of these experts that fit my criteria as full-time experts in their fields.  I’ll only recommend those I feel worthy and will open up for other recommendations as I research them thoroughly.

Captain Richard Bradley (myself)

Captain Travis Tanner

Captain Jon Lulay
If stalking trophy size redfish in water barely deep enough to cover their backs is your idea of exciting fishing, you’ve got to come fish the ” Redfish Capitol of the World.” Florida’s Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River live up to this name by offering anglers incredible fishing year round.
