Orlando FL, United States

Schooled Up Redfish Charters offer inshore fishing trips in East Central Florida’s Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River Lagoon. They specialize in sight fishing for the area’s many prize inshore species, including Redfish, Trout, Black Drum, Snook, Tarpon, and more.

The charter company is owned and operated by Capt. Mike Riccard, who is passionate about fishing in the area. He fishes aboard a 17 ft Hewes skiff, a top of the range technical poling skiff that is perfect for tackling the world famous fisheries of the Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River. Fitted out with Garmin electronics and capable of traveling in extremely shallow waters, this boat will allow two anglers plus the captain to fish the flats in in style.

All the tackle and bait you will need during your trip is included in the charter rate, and fishing licenses for all anglers are also supplied by the captain. Capt. Mike will also clean and fillet your catch for you back at the dock.

Capt. Mike worked very hard to find fish on a windy, overcast day. He was able to find some fish even in cloudy water. Capt. Mike worked well over the allotted time for the charter in his efforts to get us some good shots at fish. His goal was to provide a productive day for his clients. He has good experience on fishing the Mosquito Lagoon, and had a very pleasant attitude.

Dennis & Jim,

Thank y’all for the kind words! I enjoyed every second on the water with you guys chasing shallow water Redfish and Sea trout. Here’s to the next trip with more cooperative fish! Take it easy in the meantime.
