Light Tackle And Fly Fishing For Redfish On The Mosquito Lagoon

Mosquito Lagoon Redfish are known for their pure strength. Their pulling power will amaze you. They are one of our favorites to target. Redfish can be caught on shallow flats with live and artificial baits. Fishing for them using top water lures with 10 pound tackle is one of our favorite ways to pursue them. Live bait is also fun to use and DEADLY.

Conservation of redfish is important so we encourage clients to release most of their redfish catch. Numbers are increasing due to protected fishing. We are able to find redfish all year long in the Mosquito Lagoon.

Mosquito Lagoon in East Central Florida boasts some of the best inshore and estuary fishing for Redfish in the world. Redfish in the Mosquito Lagoon are known for both quality and quantity. They are found in lagoon systems all around the coast of Florida and some are even found offshore.

The best locations to find redfish in Florida are Mosquito Lagoon and the Northern Indian River Lagoon. Redfish feed on crustaceans, fish and small mollusk. Often redfish are in such shallow water that you can see their tales and backs protruding from the water, hence their nickname tailing redfish. Redfish have several different names or aliases depending on what part of the country you are from.

Fly Fishing for redfish is a strategic game of hunter and hunted. Redfish use their nose to plow through sand and mud to find the shrimp and crabs which make up the bulk of their diet. During these feeding times, the tails and backs of the redfish protrude out of the water.

This heart pounding action will have everyone you know wanting to come with you to experience.
