Central Florida Sight Fishing Charters
Charter rates include up to 2 anglers. If you have
more anglers in your party, I can arrange for additional
boats with quality licensed captains. Although I do not
guarantee you will catch fish, I do guarantee a clean
boat, quality tackle, and a 100% effort to put you in
position to catch as many fish as possible. Rates
include all licenses and permits.
Fishing lessons are designed to meet the needs and
desires of the individual angler. I can teach specific
topics you request or general angling skills and
techniques. For the beginning angler, there is an
introductory package that will cover the basics of gear,
casting, baits, and fish. The angler who has experience
but is new to flats fishing can arrange lessons by the
hour to cover the specific skills of fishing the inshore
coastal waters. Lessons can be conducted on the
water or at your home
