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.

Some Testimonials-

fly fishing schools

John, we had a great time! All anyone could possibly ask for. We had plenty of shots at trophy fish, Steve caught a personal all-tackle record trout. Fishing is about quality time spent with congenial souls, and I don’t know what would have made that trip any better. Well, maybe a few more, just a few, of those humongous trout on the rod; but if it were about numbers I’d leave the fly rod home.” – Aubrey Thompson

“I enjoyed fishing with you yesterday – great to talk with someone who knows their stuff. I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Kayak Fishing Association of New York and will definitely recommend you for anyone traveling down to this area in my club. I will be back again someday, and hope to meet up with you again.” -Patrick Gallagher

“My brother and I really enjoyed fishing with you today. It was cool to be able to fish in a new location with someone who is so obviously knowledgable of the fishery and of fishing in general.  I’d love to get those photos of the black drum today when you get a chance. That was a pretty cool experience to see all those huge fish schooled up like that. I’ve never seen anything like that before and probably won’t again for a while!  Thanks again!” -Kevin Gardner

“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.’dodge outfit copy

“Yes, I need to try that.

“But 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 would like to thank you for a great 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

“Big John-
You are a very good fishing guide. Your work is professional. I hope to fish with you soon and talk more about good Brazilian music. Thank you!”
-Kelven Lopes, Brazilian fisheries biologist

“Just a note to thank you for the outstanding day Laura and I spent 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

“Thought you’d like the photo of the first tarpon of the day! Thanks again for the Very Memorable – World Class – Once in a Lifetime -fishing outing!” -Mac and Sherry Dye

“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.
