Southern Waters Guide – Mosquito Lagoon

Southern Waters Guide Service invites you to join them on Mosquito Lagoon for an unforgettable adventure with fly fishing expert, Captain Caleb McDaniel! He specializes in several techniques of inshore fishing and promises you’ll have an amazing time while targeting species that are both fun and challenging for everyone!

You’ll be fishing from an 18’ East Cape flats boat that can accommodate up to 3 guests comfortably. She’s outfitted with state-of-the-art amenities, including a poling platform for better visibility while maneuvering through shallow waters. She also comes with a GPS, fishfinder, VHF Radio, live bait tank, portable cooler, and safety gear.

Capt. Caleb is a fly fishing prodigy and has been developing his skills since a young age. He specializes in targeting monster species, such as Bull Reds, Snook, Tarpon, Back Drum, and Spotted Seatrout. He’ll provide you with top-notch fly rods and reels, made by Temple Fork Outfitters to give you the ultimate fly fishing experience.

If you choose to stick to more traditional techniques, such as jigging, spinning, or popping, you’ll be provided with top-of-the-line Shimano gear. Capt. Caleb also offers combination duck hunting/fishing trips, as well as exciting night fishing. No matter what your skill level or preference, you’ll be accommodated with everything you possibly need and more, including your fishing license.

Capt. Caleb also keeps snack bars and water on board to make sure you’re energized and hydrated. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks as well and don’t forget the sunblock!

Everything else is taken care of so you can focus on having a good time while you catch (and release) some amazing fish! Join Southern Waters Guide Service on this inshore adventure in Mosquito Lagoon and get ready to create lasting memories!

Born and raised in Melbourne, FL I have been fishing on our waters since I could walk. I have been a mate for offshore charter vessels and have guided inshore flats boats for several years now. I prefer sight fishing because I really love watching the fish eat. It is one of the purest forms of fishing and I love to share this passion of mine with others. Nothing is more awesome than seeing someone's hands shake after they watch a tailing Red or a rolling Tarpon inhale their bait. I specialize in fly fishing but I have no problem with you choosing to use a spinning rod, that's how I started and I know it can be just as enjoyable. I will NOT anchor somewhere on the flat to drift baits, as I would rather be on the poling platform guiding you to the fish.

Very nice captain. Although fishing was tough, he was trying to give me more shots on red as much as possible. Thanks Caleb.
