Red Talon Charters is run by Captain Bart Rutan and offers inshore fishing trips in the famous Mosquito Lagoon and other areas in the Space Coast of Florida. A lifetime fisherman with more than 7 years of experience in the charter business, Captain Bart will make sure you have a trip suited to your individual needs and wants.
You will be fishing aboard an 18’ Bossman flats boat that is equipped with a 70 HP Yamaha engine, as well as all the necessary safety and navigation gear. A wireless trolling motor is also included so the fish don’t get spooked once you find them, as is a livewell for keeping bait. A flats boat is probably the best option for these waters, as some parts of the lagoon are only inches deep.
The shorter trip will have you fishing the local backcountry and flats for Redfish, Trout, and Snook. Depending on the time of year, Tarpon can also make quite an appearance. On a full day trip, you will be fishing the Mosquito Lagoon, also known as ‘The Redfish Capital of the World.’ This is truly one of the best places to be sight casting in, and Captain Bart will provide you with all the pointers you’ll need.
Red Talon Charters follows the ‘Customer is King’ maxim, so you will find that the price includes not only the fishing rods, reels, and terminal tackle you need, but also the necessary fishing licenses as well as drinks and light snacks. After the trip, Captain Bart will clean and fillet anything you catch so you don’t have to.
