Mosquito Lagoon Fishing

Mosquito Lagoon is known world wide for its large numbers of "bull" redfish and "gator" trout. And has been named "Redfish Capital of the World." You may not see it at first, but this estuary is full of life. Schools of redfish over 40 pounds tailing on the shallow water flat's are not uncommon during certain times of the year. Our redfish, black drum, and sea trout stay in the Mosquito lagoon year round due to the fact that they never leave the to spawn. Anglers will find year round fishing for trophy fish.

Spend the day sight fishing for 30-40 pound redfish on light tackle. With crystal clear water most of the year, sight fishing these shallow flats become exciting. Redfish and black drum will tail on the shallow flats giving away thier location making it easy for you the angler to spot. My goal will be to put you on the fish, its up to you to reel them in.

The Mosquito Lagoon is a long, narrow, estuary that is bordered on the east by a barrier island and on the west by the mainland and is connected to the Indian River Lagoon via the Haulover canal near Titsuville. Mosquito Lagoon has been designated an Outstanding Florida Water by the State of Florida and, as part of the Indian River Lagoon, an Estuary of National Significance by the Environmental Protection Agency.

It is renown for its outstanding biological diversity, recreational fishery and as habitat for several federally-protected animals. Lagoon waters are classified as Class II which is suitable for shellfish (clam and oyster) propagation and harvesting. Since the lagoon ecosystem is based heavily on healthy seagrass beds, water clarity is essential. Water clarity in Mosquito Lagoon is very good in the winter and early spring but decreases in the summer and fall.
