Swing by Edgewater, Florida, home to the Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Reserve. Anglers who want to do some flats and inshore fishing will love it here. Don’t be a stranger and contact Caught Slackin Fishing Charters, and they’ll put you on the fish. Captain Christian Raimondo knows the area like the back of his hand, and he’ll show you around. What’s more, he wants you to have a fun time in his hometown fishery.

You’ll be exploring the local fisheries on board the Panga Marine, flats boat model from 2008. It is 18’ and it can accommodate groups of 3 guests per trip. The boat is equipped with a single Suzuki 60hp Tiller, which can reach top speeds of 30 kn. For a quieter and stealthier approach to fish, a wireless trolling motor is available.

This charter covers inshore and nearshore locations, which include local flats along with backcountry fishing. The fish bites all year round, though in certain seasons some are more available than others. In certain months Snook is off-limits. Generally, you can target yummy Flounder, Blacktip Shark, Mangrove Snapper, among others. As for the fishing techniques, you can test your skills with light tackle, bottom fishing, spinning, and fly fishing.

Families will be glad to know that children are welcome. You don’t have to worry about the necessary fishing equipment, lures, and bait, all of this will be ready on board. Additionally, the charter covers your Florida fishing license. For a more refreshing experience, the crew offers drinks. It’s up to you whether you’ll keep or release your catch. If you do bag it, the crew will happily help you with cleaning. 

Get some flats and inshore action with the Caught Slacking Fishing Charters, and don’t miss the chance to bag some fresh fish.
