trip description for New Smyrna Beach & Daytona Beach Tarpon Fishing in Edgewater

We are in full blown tarpon season now!! Book now for the fight of a life with the most powerful saltwater light tackle gamefish on earth! The tarpon, Atlantic tarpon or also called the silver king are one of the number one targeted sport fish on the earth. These fish are some of the best fighting fish anglers have come across with using light tackle. Central Florida offers a wide selection of two different tarpon fishing charters in the area and this is the closest tarpon fishing near Orlando you will find. We target big tarpon here throughout the warmer months in the spring through the fall along the beaches, just outside the inlets. The backcountry tarpon fishing is done on the Mosquito Lagoon Indian River year round on the flats in New Smyrna Beach, Daytona Beach, Ponce Inlet, Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach. Typically April through November, with May, June, July, August, September and October being prime time for big beach, nearshore and backcountry tarpon. However the smaller tarpon can be found throughout the area year round in the far backcountry waters of the Indian River, Banana River, Sebastian Inlet and the Mosquito Lagoon. These fish range around 5 to 20 pounds, which are perfect for light tackle applications of both spin and fly. Along the beaches on the nearshore fishing trips is where you will find the 100 plus pound tarpon. These begin showing up in April and is in full force all summer long. On these charters we also have a chance to catch several other fish as well, just not tarpon. Snook and redfish are in the same areas. Read More

trip description for Saltwater Fly Fishing near Orlando & Disney in Allenhurst

You will be sight fishing from the bow of a flats skiff in the Mosquito Lagoon or Indian River Lagoon. Despite the scary name, there are no mosquitoes on the water. With clear skies and water, you can see fish within casting distance. In addition, we look for tails, fins, and wakes from single fish, groups or schools. Year round targets include redfish (red drum), spotted seatrout, and black drum. Seasonal catches may include tarpon and snook. Your captain has nearly 20 years of guiding experience specializing in sight fishing these waters. Capt. Chris is a certified fly casting instructor with the FFI for those wanting to improve their cast. Fly fishing in this area is primarily sight fishing which means you are casting at specific targets. 7 weight rods are used most often with 5, 9, and 12 wt rods for specific species. This trip is not for beginner level fly anglers due to the need for speed and accuracy in casting. I can provide all tackle and flies at no additional charge, or you may bring your own. In the event conditions for fly fishing are not optimal, spinning tackle will also be available on board. Fly fishing trips are usually started at first light unless otherwise dictated by weather or other factors discussed in advance. All trips are catch, photo, release only. Read More

What is fishing in Mosquito Lagoon about?

Fishing in Mosquito Lagoon offers anglers a unique and rewarding experience amidst the stunning natural beauty of Florida's Space Coast. Situated along the Indian River Lagoon system, Mosquito Lagoon is renowned for its pristine waters and abundant fish populations. One of the main attractions for anglers is the lagoon's thriving population of redfish, speckled trout, and black drum. These species can be found throughout the lagoon's expansive flats, grass beds, and mangrove shorelines, providing anglers with plenty of opportunities to target trophy-sized catches.

Mosquito Lagoon is particularly famous for its exceptional sight fishing opportunities, allowing anglers to spot and cast to fish in shallow, clear waters. Redfish, in particular, are a popular target for sight fishermen, with the lagoon's extensive grass flats and sandy bottoms providing ideal habitat for these hard-fighting fish. Speckled trout and black drum can also be targeted using similar techniques, making Mosquito Lagoon a paradise for anglers who enjoy the thrill of stalking fish in their natural environment.

Beyond sight fishing, anglers can also enjoy a variety of other fishing techniques in Mosquito Lagoon, including fly fishing, live bait fishing, and lure casting. Fly fishing enthusiasts will find ample opportunities to test their skills against wary redfish and trout, while those using live bait or artificial lures can target a wider range of species, including snook, tarpon, and flounder. With its diverse range of fishing opportunities and pristine natural surroundings, Mosquito Lagoon offers anglers an unforgettable fishing experience along Florida's East Coast.

What are the most popular months to fish in Mosquito Lagoon?

Fishing seasons in Mosquito Lagoon follow a familiar pattern, with each season offering unique opportunities to target different species in this renowned angling destination. Spring marks the beginning of prime fishing season in Mosquito Lagoon, as warming temperatures trigger increased fish activity and spawning migrations. This season is particularly exciting for anglers targeting redfish and speckled trout, as both species move into shallow waters to feed voraciously and reproduce. Spring also sees an influx of baitfish and other prey species, attracting larger predators like snook and tarpon to the lagoon's expansive flats and mangrove shorelines.

As summer arrives, fishing in Mosquito Lagoon remains productive, albeit with some adjustments due to the warmer temperatures. Early mornings and evenings are prime times to fish as the heat of the day can drive fish into deeper, cooler waters. Despite the challenges posed by the summer heat, anglers can still enjoy excellent fishing for redfish, speckled trout, and black drum, particularly in the lagoon's shallow flats and around submerged structure. Summer also offers opportunities for sight fishing, with clear waters providing ideal conditions for spotting and targeting fish in their natural habitat.

Fall marks another peak fishing season in Mosquito Lagoon, as cooling temperatures trigger increased fish activity and migrations. Speckled trout and redfish once again move into shallow waters to feed voraciously in preparation for the approaching winter. Anglers can experience exciting topwater action and sight fishing opportunities as they target these prized game fish in the lagoon's clear waters. Fall also sees an increase in black drum activity as they move into Mosquito Lagoon to spawn, providing additional targets for anglers to pursue. With its diverse range of fishing opportunities and favorable conditions throughout the year, Mosquito Lagoon offers anglers an unforgettable fishing experience along Florida's Space Coast.

What types of fishing are popular in Mosquito Lagoon?

Fishing in Mosquito Lagoon offers a diverse range of experiences, catering to anglers with different preferences and skill levels. One popular method is sight fishing, which involves spotting fish in the lagoon's clear, shallow waters and casting to them with precision. This technique is particularly thrilling when targeting species like redfish and speckled trout, as anglers stalk their prey and present baits or lures with finesse. Sight fishing in Mosquito Lagoon requires patience, keen observation, and skillful casting, making it a favorite among experienced anglers seeking a challenging and rewarding fishing experience.

Fly fishing is another popular type of fishing in Mosquito Lagoon, offering anglers the chance to test their skills against wary fish in this pristine angling destination. The lagoon's expansive flats and grass beds provide ample opportunities for fly anglers to target species like redfish, speckled trout, and tarpon. Using lightweight fly rods and colorful, imitation flies, anglers can mimic the movements of natural prey and entice fish to strike. Fly fishing in Mosquito Lagoon requires precision casting and careful presentation, making it a rewarding pursuit for anglers who enjoy the artistry and technique of this traditional fishing method.

In addition to sight fishing and fly fishing, anglers in Mosquito Lagoon can also enjoy success using conventional tackle and techniques such as live bait fishing and lure casting. Live bait like shrimp, mullet, and finger mullet can be effective for targeting a variety of species, including redfish, trout, and black drum. Artificial lures such as soft plastics, spoons, and topwater plugs are also popular choices for anglers looking to cover more water and trigger aggressive strikes from predatory fish. Whether sight fishing, fly fishing, or using conventional tackle, Mosquito Lagoon offers anglers a wide range of fishing opportunities and the chance to pursue their favorite catches in a stunning natural setting.

What species are popular in Mosquito Lagoon?

In Mosquito Lagoon, anglers have the opportunity to target a diverse array of fish species, making it a premier destination for fishing enthusiasts. One of the most prized catches in the lagoon is the redfish, known for its powerful runs and hard-fighting nature. These fish can be found throughout the lagoon's shallow waters, including grass flats, mangrove shorelines, and oyster beds. Anglers often target redfish using a variety of techniques such as sight fishing, live bait fishing, and lure casting, making for an exciting and varied fishing experience.

Speckled trout are another popular species to catch in Mosquito Lagoon, offering anglers the chance to test their skills against these elusive game fish. Speckled trout are commonly found in shallow grass flats and sandy bottoms, where they feed on small baitfish and crustaceans. Anglers often use lightweight tackle and artificial lures to target speckled trout, with topwater plugs and soft plastics being particularly effective. Catching speckled trout in Mosquito Lagoon requires patience and finesse, but the rewards are well worth the effort, with these fish known for their acrobatic leaps and delicious taste.

In addition to redfish and speckled trout, Mosquito Lagoon is also home to a variety of other sought-after species, including black drum, snook, and tarpon.
