Depending on the length of charter consider bringing snacks, drinks, camera, hat, and a rain jacket if the weather looks like rain. A good pair of polarized sunglasses is key to spotting the fish. Your boat for the day will be equipped with an ice chest for your food and drinks and we 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.

The question is really what are you looking to fish for? The guides on this site offer light tackle and fly fishing trips for redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and , black drum. Talk to them, and let them know what your expectations are. This way they can plan the best trip we can for you. Please keep in mind that the season and skill level can dictate what we are able to target.

No. The fishing guides cover all of your fishing licenses that you will need while fishing with them. All of the guides are licensed guides inside of the Canaveral National Seashore, and Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, as well as a U.S.C.G six pack approved,
Also C.P.R and first aid certified. All fishing trips are fully insured.

Most of our fishing is done with artificials, as well as live bait on light spinning tackle, and fly fishing trips. Depending on your skills the guides 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 they 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.

Depending 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.

Spring 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. The bait fish return to the Lagoons and that means the top water bite really picks up. Sea Trout are roaming the shallows as well. Black Drum are still around on the flats. Fly fishing heats up to with trophy size Redfish. Tarpon and Snook start to make a big showing in Cocoa Beach along the beachs. Tarpon in the 80-150 pound range can be found rolling and feeding on baits pods. Light tackle and Fly Fishing are the two methods used when fishing these silver giants. Cobia and Kingfish are also in the mix during the summer.

Fall and winter months the water becomes gin clear from the cooler water temps and the sight fishing is at it's best inside the Lagoons. The shrimp spawn on the flat's really fires up the Redfish and Black Drum bite. You will also find Sea Trout tailing in super shallow water. Fly fishing during the winter can be outstanding on calm mornings.
The No Motor Zone is home to big black drum in the 10 - 40 pound range. These fish can be found tailing in super shallow water. Book a trip with one of our Fishing Guides and spend the day being poled on the front of a custom flats canoe while you sight fish trophy fish with the fly rod.

Our fishing guides encourage catch, photo, and release fishing with our 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 they understand and you will need to bring a small cooler that will stay in your car while your out fishing. They will clean and bag them for you free of charge. If your looking to mount a prize fish we suggest MountThis.
