Fishin’ With Fresa Charter Services

If you want to explore the famous fishing of the Intercoastal Waterway, what better way than with an experienced guide? Captain Mike Fresa, at the helm of Fishin’ With Fresa Charter Services, will take you from Mosquito Lagoon all the way to Sebastian Inlet, in search of the hottest bite.

You’ll embark on this angling adventure on board his 17’ Mosquito Bay skiff. She’s spacious and will allow for you, and three of your fishing buddies, to fish at the same time. Her shallow draft and wireless trolling engine are perfect for stalking the pathways of the Waterway and the open deck means you can chase the bite all around.

Capt. Mike can put you on top of many different species – the choice of what to go after is all up to you! Depending on the season, your preference, and your skill level you can go after Redfish, Black Drum, Snook, Tarpon, Mangrove Snapper, and other beasts in the shallows. If you’re chasing the next fighting challenge, you can go after Jack Crevalle or Cobia – make sure to hold on to your rod tight! Many other species are eligible as well, talk to the captain to figure out what’s best for you.

The charter will supply you with all the required tackle and safety equipment. Fishing licenses are also taken care of – the captain’s license covers all passengers.

Remember to bring a cooler with you, the captain will clean and fillet your fish after the trip, free of charge. He works hard to make sure every trip is as fun as possible, gratuity is always greatly appreciated.

Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned veteran, booking a trip with Fishin’ With Fresa Charter Services is the right move! After all, everyone needs a fishing story.
