Hello anglers! Big Als Inshore Charter Service has been fishing the Mosquito lagoon for over 40 years and they always know where the fish are biting. Captain Al has a slightly different technique than most of the guides in the area, using light line and live bait. On most days this pays off big time and he’ll show you how.

You’ll be fishing on an 25’ Carolina Skiff that runs on a 175 HP Suzuki engine. It’s a spacious vessel with enough room for 5 anglers to join and you can all fish at the same time. With a GPS and fishfinder electronics and a wireless trolling motor, you’re all set for success.

You can choose between a half day and a full day trip, depending on how much time you want to spend on the water and what you want to target. Whatever you choose, it’s a fun ride! Some of your targets for the day are Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Snook. Capt. Al is a live bait fisherman and the type of bait you’ll use depends on the season.

You get to keep the catch after the trip and Capt. Al will clean it for you. Just ask for a restaurant recommendation and go straight there with the freshest fish fillets.

Your fishing license and equipment are fully covered. There’s bottled water on the boat but feel free to bring other beverages and snacks of your choice. Kids are welcome to join as well.

The boat departs from River Breeze park in Oak Hill, George Kennedy Park in Edgewater, and New Smyrna Beach Causeway ramp.

Big Als Inshore Charter Service has never taken anyone who didn’t want to go again. Book your trip and have some fun fishing.
