Visitor Question: Where can I fish in Ruskin, Orlando, and Jacksonville?

Hello. I'm visiting Florida next month and wanted to know, where can I fish in Ruskin, Orlando, and Jacksonville?

Is there a state park that I can visit that has access to a body of water where I can fish? Or a place that I can pay to fish at for a couple hours? Some guys in an earlier thread were saying that I can't fish off highways because those belong to the state and that would be technically trespassing on private property at that point.

I have my freshwater license and only do catch and release, and have no intention on trespassing or breaking the law.

Thanks in advance.
