Default Orland Area Trip

Taking the whole family to the land of the mouse ears next week. We are only doing 3 days int the disney parks, so I have a couple free days. Can anyone suggest a diy fishing outing. Can't hire a guide (2 nights and 3days at the Carrabian beach resort has drained my funds). My parents have a winter home in Haines city and I will be there for 3 days. There are lots of lakes around there, but I have never fished them. Any suggestions would help.

Default Orlando trip

I did some research online for trophy bass FF in Orlando awhile back. I even talked to a couple of guides on the phone. It seems that no one specializes in FF for Bass in Orlando. Everybody wants to take you to the salt. I will be down there in June and luckily the place I'm staying is on a large private Lake. There are several public lakes in Orlando that can be fished from the bank and can be found online.

The good news is that there are lots of places to fish; the bad news is you need a boat. There are essentially no safe places to wade fish other than in salt water. That said, for $20-$30 you can rent a canoe and fly fish for bass and panfish. About one hour north of Disney World I suggest you check out the Wekiva River State Park where you can rent a canoe and fish for miles but you have to paddle back. Downstream and just out of the park there is Wekiva River Marina. It is mostly a launch site for kayaks and canoes. A word of caution, go during the week. The weekend is full of screamers splashing water, blocking the river, etc. The Wekiva River is a designated as a National Scenic River and is worth the trip as therapy after spending time with the Mouse tourists. BTW the Wekiva River State Park has plenty of trails and a spring for swimming which might entertain the family while you are fishing.

Also check out the Florida State Parks website for there are other places. have fun and I hope you get to experience the real Florida.
