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,
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.
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.

on the east by a barrier island and on the west by the
mainland and is connected to the Indian River Lagoon

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

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
