It’s time to bend a rod with 2 Lagoon Charters. Captain Fred Pharis has 20+ years of experience fishing the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoons within the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge on Florida’s Space Coast. The park and surrounding waters are a unique estuary system with some of the most pristine grass flats in the state!
Hop aboard his recently restored 18’ Man-O-War skiff with a 2017 90hp Suzuki where up to 3 anglers can fish comfortably. Fishing and catching is good year round! Our primary target fish are Redfish where often we find schools of tailing fish and there is always an opportunity to catch ’em in the 20 to 40lbs range, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum are always around as well!
Winter into Summer offers the opportunity to catch “Gator” Speckled Trout up to 10lbs and find large schools of Black Drum. Summer offers Tarpon and an occasional Snook! All these fish are caught in 1’ to 5’ of water and sight fishing on the right days are awesome! All fishing gear and licenses are included on the trip.
You’ll be using top of the line Penn rods and reels loaded with Spiderwire invisi-braid line. We’ll fish using a variety of methods; live and cut bait and artificial. The bite will dictate what methods are used! Everyone is welcome, especially kids! Whatever your age and experience level, you are sure to have a fantastic time in this awesome estuary! There are a variety of trips available to include Space Coast rocket launch viewing just a few miles away from the Cape Kennedy launch pads.
There’s no better time to book a trip, join 2 Lagoon Charters today for an unforgettable day! You’re sure to come back time and time again!
