Native Sons Fishing Guides, Central Florida & Indian River Lagoon Fishing Charters

Feb. 3, 2008 – Queen Carp and Her Court

The weather and fishing have been glorious the past few days although it is getting to be a little crowded on the water. Yesterday, fishing out of Titusville (40 miles east of Orlando) we caught nine reds to 39 inches and one trout but faced stiff competition for the fish. After poling in from 300 yards and stealthfully staking down, no less than thirteen boats tried to pole, troll or motor through the shoreline flats adjacent to our anchorage. When the armada finally set sail for greener pastures, or bluer waters, the reds were so thoroughly spooked I am afraid even a visit from Ghost Busters wouldn’t have set them aright. Pictured below, holding their newest acquaintances, are the reigning Minnesota Carp Queen and her royal court; Cindy Lehman, husband Fred, and son Paul.

Fishing in the Ft. Pierce area yesterday (70 miles southeast of Orlando), Capt. Roland guided Bob Jones of Palm Bay and Luke Marks of Lewes, Delaware. This crew finished their charter with five trout (18 to 26 inches), two small snook, two sheephead, and one 16 inch snapper.

Earlier last week, guided by Native Sons Captains Roland and Don, Dan Singer and two friends, Jim and Keith, escaped the frigid weather of Buffalo and ventured into the Indian River south of Titusville (45 minute drive from Orlando). This charter had the laughs of a lifetime as they battled a number of redfish included the monster pictured with Keith below. By the way, I believe this was the first time Keith had ever caught a fish. What an initiation to angling!

Our final report is another Capt. Roland recent guide adventure. Alan and Anna Schwartz joined him in the Grant/Sebastian area on a blustery winter day. Even though the temperature had plunged and the wind howled this merry crew found some calm water and a few fish anxious for a fight. Pictured below are Alan and one of his triumphs from the charter, a fine black drum.
