Many people come to the Kissimmee area for the theme parks and the bass fishing. There is also some excellent saltwater fishing about an hour to two hours away depending on where you are staying in Kissimmee and where you decide to travel to.
Head West – If you head west, you can go fish the Tampa Bay area or the Sarasota area. Both destinations offer excellent inshore and offshore fishing. Tampa Bay is also one of the best destinations for fishing without a boat in all of Florida.
Head East – If you head east, you can go fish the Space Coast. You can fish inshore or offshore here, although, the inshore fishing in Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River gets most of the attention, especially among anglers that like to fish freshwater for bass. When fishing the inshore waters here, you will most likely be fishing the shallow grass flats for redfish and sea trout, which is very similar to fishing the shallows for bass.
