Nearby is Stick Marsh (also known as Farm 13)—a world-class bass fishery. The massive impoundment is one of the best sports for trophy bass in Florida and is strictly catch and release. Guides are recommended in this area because the same underwater structure that makes it such a good bass fishery also makes it dangerous to navigate on your own.

In terms of saltwater, the lagoons and isles create the perfect cover for a ton of inshore fish. The Space Coast has over 500 species of fish that call the waters home, but Mosquito Lagoon is known universally as the redfish capital. The Melbourne area is also great for spotted sea trout, tarpon, jack crevalle, and mangrove snapper, and is just about the northernmost boundary for snook. Book a fishing trip in Melbourne to target any of these species and you are sure to have the fishing experience of a lifetime.

The entire Indian River lagoon system (a combination of the Banana, Indian, and Mosquito Rivers) provides plenty of small mangrove islands that the redfish love. Whether you fish conventional tackle or on the fly, the sight-fishing is next level. The Melbourne area is also great for spotted sea trout, tarpon, jack crevalle, and mangrove snapper, and is just about the northernmost boundary for snook.
