Going on vacation to Florida...need some advice


Recommended Posts

We will be staying for about a week in the Orlando area starting on June 12th. I will have 1 full day to do some fishing. Anyone have any info on something close to Orlando where I can get some fly fishing in?

You are so stupid you threw a rock at the ground and missed.

if you have the time to drive south a little (about an hour) you can easily get to not only the indian river, but the stick marsh & farm 13. the latter two are supposed to be good bass fishing locations......for big bass... see the link.

stick marsh & farm 13

the directions on there are accurate, except the road 'backcock', is really 'babcock'. there are also links @the bottom of the page to other locations....

if you continue going east on malabar road, you run right into US1 @the Indian river.....if you then drive south a ways, you'll get to sebastian and there is a bridge that will take you over the lagoon (and there are places to stop & you can fish) to sebastian inlet & you can fish the salt there.....people also pull over on US1 and park and wade out in the lagoon and fish too. if you locate a local shop they can give more specific directions to the inlet if you want. enjoy---there's all kinds of fishing there and the restaurants around have FRESH fish (unlike what we get) ...awesome! mahi-mahi.....yum..

I hear there is some excellent bass fishing in the canals, lakes, ponds, and bayous around Orlando to be had with the fly rod. There are guides in Orlando/Kissimmee who specialize in this. I've seen ads. That would be the closest/easiest.

But you can get to either coast in about an hour to an hour and a half. And there is good fishing to be had in both directions. Do some research and pick your poison.

It's just a guess...but I dont think mama would allow that to happen since we already purchased the plane tix and booked the hotel.
