Spot Stalker Charters – Edgewater

Based in Edgewater, Florida, Spot Stalker Charters specializes in inshore fishing and providing their clients with the ultimate East Florida shallow water experience. Don’t miss the chance to fish the Mosquito Lagoon, one of the most legendary flats fishing locations in the state.

Captain Todd Vivian invites you to spend the day aboard his 19’ Composite Research Inc. flats boat, fresh on the water in 2016. It can carry up to 3 anglers in full comfort and comes with a reliable Yamaha engine, a wireless trolling motor, a live bait tank, an ice-box, and top-notch marine electronics and safety gear.

A typical trip includes poling the flats and backcountry in pursuit of tailing fish. You’ll be sight casting for the likes of Redfish, Snook, Seatrout, Drum, Seabass, and so much more. You’ll get to try your hand at spinning, popping, drifting, and even fly fishing if you request it in advance. 

The captain will provide you with top-quality Custom built MHX rods, Florida Fishing Reels, and fly gear if you let him know in advance. A variety of live baits and lures is also available. Fishing licenses and drinks are courtesy of the charter, too.

Spot Stalker Charters will do everything they can for you to have a productive and carefree fishing trip!

Member since September 2016
I began fishing the flats and backwaters of Florida over 20 years ago. I have lived in Florida now since 2008 and spend over 200 days a year on the water in the Mosquito Lagoon and North Indian River areas. I grew up in the Pacific NW and fishing is some of my earliest memories. After college I went to work for Lamiglas, Inc. as a rod/blank designer. Lamiglas is one of the NW's largest Fishing Rod Manufacturers. After 20 years designing rods for Lamiglas I moved to Florida where I have been designing rod building components and equipment along with rod blanks for Mud Hole Custom Tackle.
