Southern Waters Guide Service is an inshore charter operation running trips around the Banana River, Indian River, and Mosquito Lagoon. Captain Caleb McDaniel is a sight fishing expert who prides himself on giving each group the full Florida inshore experience. Spend the day with him and let him show you just how much his native waters have to offer!
You will be fishing from an 18’ East Cape flats boat built in 2009 and well maintained ever since. This nimble vessel was designed to dominate the flats, with a shallow draft and a poling platform to let you chase fish through the skinny waters in silence. She can carry up to 3 guests, depending on the total weight of the group.
Capt. Caleb is a passionate fly fisherman who stocks only the best fly gear from Temple Fork Outfitters to make sure your trip is successful. Of course, he understands that not everyone loves fly fishing as much as he does. You will also find quality Shimano spinning tackle onboard, as well as a livewell full of bait.
Due to the type of fishery, 1-2 anglers can fish at a time off the bow. If you’re using spinning gear, more people can cast at once. You won’t be short of fish to target, that’s for sure. From big bull Reds to hard-fighting Snook and even Tarpon, the Mosquito Lagoon and surrounding rivers are home to a who’s who of inshore gamefish. All trips are catch & release, meaning you won’t be keeping the fish.
These waters are also a beautiful place to simply pass the day. If you want to spend some of your trip exploring, swimming, or anything else, just let the captain know. He will always talk through your ideas with you to help build your perfect inshore adventure.
All rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, and licenses are included in the price. Just bring your food and drinks and jump aboard for a fun day out!
