Should I Bring?
on the length of charter consider bringing snacks, drinks,
camera, hat, and a rain jacket if the weather looks
like rain. The boat is equipped with an ice chest for
your food and drinks and I always fill it with bottled
water and fresh ice. Please pack light when packing
for your trip, there is limited space on the boats for
extra's. A small waterproof bag is also a great idea.
Please, no extra coolers on the boats.
are We Fishing For?
question is really what are you looking to fish for?
I offer light tackle inshore fishing trip's for redfish,
and small tarpon.
Talk to me, and let me know what your expectations are.
This way I can plan the best trip I can for you. Please
keep in mind that the season can dictate what we are
able to target.
I Need to Buy a License?
I cover all of your fishing licenses that you will need
while fishing with us. I am licensed guide inside of
the Canaveral National Seashore, and Merritt Island
Wildlife Refuge, as well as a U.S.C.G six pack approved.
And all of my charters are fully insured. I am C.P.R
and first aid certified.
Will We Be Fishing With?
of my fishing is done with artificials as well as live
bait on light spinning tackle. Depending on your skill
I will work with you throughout the day to help you
spot the fish, and make the perfect cast. Its best to
get a little practice if you can, because every shot
counts. For the advanced angler I offer sight fishing
trips. Anglers new to fishing might feel more comfortable
with live bait. It really depends on the angler, weather,
and what the fish feel like chewing on that day.
is the Best Time of the Year to Fish?
on what you are looking to chase on the flat's, every
month is great in that it brings us something a little
different to fish for. Our Lagoons are special in the
fact that most of our redfish, black drum, and sea trout
never leave our lagoons to go offshore and spawn. That
means we can find fish year round inside the Lagoons.
and summer - months you can find schools
of redfish in the 20-40 pound range tailing on the flat's
in 2-4 foot of water inside the Mosquito
Lagoon. Tarpon, and big snook move onto the flat's
of the Indian
River Lagoon. During the spring and fall mullet
runs, anglers can look foward to that slam three, even
a few grand slams in the Sebastian back waters on light
tackle. Night fishing
fires up during the hot summer months, and it's a great
way to beat the long hot days and fishing crowds.
and winter - months the water becomes
gin clear from the cooler water temps and the sight
fishing is at it's best inside the Mosquito
Lagoon. The shrimp spawn on the flat's really fires
up the redfish bite. You will also find trout, and black
drum tailing in super shallow water. The tarpon are
gone, and the snook get very picky around the cold fronts.
We Keep Our Fish?
encourage catch, photo, and release fishing with my
customers. This helps reduce the strain on our fishery
and will greatly ensure our future success in fishing.
If your looking to take a couple fish home for dinner
that night you will need to bring a small cooler that
will stay in your car while your out fishing. I will
clean and bag them for you free of charge. If your looking
to mount a prize fish we suggest
