Hello, My name is Joshua Mattson and I am a3rd Generation Floridian. I currently hold a USCG OUPV Captains License and offer a variety of outdoor adventures in Central Florida. Private Airboat Tours are my specialty and are available year-round. Alligators and manatees are our targeted species but we also have a wide variety of birds and animals including deer, hogs, eagles, herons, egrets and cranes. I operate out of two locations that I swap out through the year depending on animal movements. Deleon Springs and Sanford are located between Daytona Beach and Orlando, allowing excellent and easy access to the St. Johns River. Bowfishing is also available on the river and charters take place year round, with night trips offering the best success. We target tilapia, gar, catfish, plecostamus and mullet.
Saltwater charters are also available seasonally. We target whatever is available at that time. Sharks, Shrimp, Cobia, King Mackerel, Gag Grouper, Red Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Tarpon, Barracuda and variety of snappers. Launching from Matanzas Inlet and Ponce Inlet on the East coast and Homosassa on the West. We offer a variety of options for beginners and seasoned veterans alike.
Alligator Hunts are available on a year-round basis on private land and in the Fall during Floridas Public Waters Hunt.
"Often I have been exhausted on trout streams, uncomfortable, wet, cold, briar scarred, sunburned, mosquito bitten, but never, with a fly rod in my hand have I been less than in a place that was less than beautiful."
