Capt. Tony Pantuso

Launching out of Canaveral National Seashore Park in New Smyrna Beach, Capt. Tony Pantuso will take you to the pristine shallow flats of the Mosquito Lagoon. Explore the finest inshore spots that East Central Florida has to offer and make a great catch possible.

Capt. Tony spends the majority of the year on the water and never stops learning. He always stays on top of the current bite and knows all the tried-and-true methods. On your day out, you will be light tackle fishing for trophy Redfish and world-class Spotted Seatrout, as well as Snook, Black Drum, Tarpon, and Flounder.

You will be able to choose from spinning and fly fishing. Don’t hesitate to bring your lucky rod with you, along with all the other gear you may need or use the top-notch rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures that are available on board.

Capt. Tony operates a 17’ Mitzi skiff, which is ideal for the shallow waters of the Mosquito Lagoon. The skiff can carry up to 3 anglers and comes powered by a single 70 HP Yamaha engine.

His passion for sight fishing has been strong for almost three decades now. The flats of the Mosquito Lagoon are his office for almost 300 days a year. As Captain Tony says, “I love every minute of it. I would not have it any other way!”
