Whether it’s a full day trip with a serious angler or a shorter family trip, Code Red Fishing Charters is up to the challenge. Captain Matt knows the famous Mosquito Lagoon inside and out and will be happy to share that knowledge with any prospective angler, regardless of their experience and skillset.
One thing that sets Code Red Fishing Charters apart from most other charters is their 24/7 availability policy. Whether it’s at sunrise or in the evening, Captain Matt will do his utmost to accommodate your individual needs.
Captain Matt’s main boat is an 18’ Bossman skiff, equipped with a 60 HP Suzuki engine. This type of boat is exactly what you need when fishing on shallow waters in and around the Mosquito Lagoon. The boat is equipped with all the necessary equipment for inshore and flats fishing, including a wireless trolling motor as well as rods, Penn reels, tackle, and GrandSlam/Z-man lures. Enjoyers of fly fishing should, however, bring their own fly fishing gear.
Mosquito Lagoon is known amongst fishermen as The Redfish Capital of the World for good reason. Along with the Speckled Trout, Redfish is the reason why the Lagoon is such a popular place for so many anglers. Of course, those two are not the only thing that can be seen in these waters. Tarpon and Snook have also been known to make appearances once every so often. Fish aren’t the only thing there is to see, though. If you’re lucky, you might also see mammals such as Dolphins and Manatees.
Captain Matt has the licensing and insurance sorted and will be happy to fillet and package any caught fish for you to enjoy afterward. All you would need to bring is a pair of sunglasses, some snacks if you’re so inclined, and a camera to take those quality wildlife shots. All that’s left is to have as much fun as possible.
