Capt. John Kumiski’s Spotted Tail Orlando Fishing Charters

Orlando Fishing Trips

Look no further than Capt. John Kumiski’s Spotted Tail Orlando Fishing Charters for thrilling guided fishing trips in both salt- and freshwater. We’re only one hour’s drive from Orlando! We fish on the Mosquito Lagoon, the Indian River Lagoon, the Banana River Lagoon, the near-coastal Atlantic waters, and the St. Johns River. John’s anglers have been catching fish on central Florida waters for over 25 years.

Fly fish or use light tackle for redfish, seatrout, snook, tarpon, black drum, and more on the waters of the Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River Lagoon, and Banana River Lagoon. Or you may prefer to fish the near coastal waters of the Atlantic Ocean for tarpon, snook, cobia, king mackerel, sharks, and many other species. Or maybe a day of fishing for bass and bream is more your style.

Spotted Tail Orlando Fishing Charters supplies all fishing tackle for both fly and light tackle. We also supply the flies, lures, or bait, and all necessary licenses* and permits.

Fish from our skiff, or by kayak or canoe.

We love experienced fly anglers, but are equally happy taking beginners or children. Everyone should be able to enjoy a day on the water!

Skiff Fishing along the Beach

I run a 17 foot boat. Beach fishing trips demand great weather!
-cobia and tripletail. Cobia show up along the space coast in March. March and April are the two best months, although you could run into them any time between March and October. This is sight fishing for the most part, and works best with conventional tackle.

-mega-jacks and king mackerel. Warning- a big jack will hurt you! The big jacks appear in April and hang around for eight weeks or so, if they show up at all. These fish will sometimes take a fly, but nothing beats a live menhaden. For king mackerel we generally use menhaden, slow-trolling them.

Tarpon don’t show until the water temperature hits at least 75, although they prefer 79. The time of year runs from late May into October. We also need schools of menhaden. When these two conditions coincide our tarpon fishing is absolutely world class.

Tarpon also show in the lagoons, although there does not seem to be any kind of pattern to their appearance. Some years they show, other years they don’t. The water temperature is still a critical element.

Mullet migrate south along the beaches during September, October, and early November. Every kind of fish that eats mullet may be there then. When it’s good, getting eight or ten different species is not unusual, including tarpon, snook, redfish, seatrout, crevalle jacks, bluefish, ladyfish, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, cobia, tripletail, little tunny, mangrove snapper, flounder, and several species of sharks.

Why Spotted Tail Charters Will Help You Catch More and Bigger Fish

Capt. John Kumiski has been fishing since before he learned to walk.

He started guiding part-time in 1988, and since January of 1996 has been making a living by fishing, writing about fishing, selling photographs of fishing, and giving classes and seminars about fishing.
He gives everyone who fishes with him the best day he possibly can. Usually you’ll find some fish that cooperate.
He says, “I love my anglers. I treat them, and the other fishermen I share the water with, the way I would like to be treated. Being human I sometimes err. If I upset you please let me know. I will apologize and do my best to make it right.”

Here’s what a few of my anglers have said about fishing with John:

“I have fished all over the world with dozens of different guides, and Capt. John Kumiski would have to rate as one of the best. He is knowledgeable, patient, and skillful. My son and I will never forget catching in one morning on fly rods two redfish weighing a total of 40 pounds.” -Michael Barnett

“I cannot thank you enough for yesterday. I had one of the best days of my life and I enjoyed every minute. And of course, I can’t stop thinking about: ‘Lane, have you ever tried tarpon fishing? You’d be really good at that.’ I need to try that.

“I’ll be back for reds, too. That’s some awesome stuff. I’ll send others your way, as well. Thanks again.” -Lane Thurgood

“I have never gone fishing with anyone more knowledgeable, relaxing, and fun!!” -Kathy McCarthy LaFlam

“I would like to thank you for a great fishing trip. My son and I will treasure this trip for some time. We have never been on a guided fishing trip like this one. This trip was fantastic, your personality and demeanor is perfect for your job. Your courtesy on the water was exemplary.” -Randy Sorbi

“Just a note to thank you for the outstanding day Laura and I spent fishing with you. It may have been one of the most enjoyable days I have ever had fishing. I have been recommending you highly.” -Gene McDonough
