According to customer reviews, Coastline Charters, Down South Fishing – Inshore, and All Schooled Up Fishing Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Mosquito Lagoon. Full list of top fishing charters in Mosquito Lagoon.

Coastline Charters, Down South Fishing – Inshore, and All Schooled Up Fishing Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Mosquito Lagoon.

The most popular fish species you can target are Redfish, Snook, and Mangrove Snapper. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, spinning, and bottom fishing. Inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and offshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

When it comes to inshore fishing in Florida, Mosquito Lagoon has earned itself a place at the very top of the list – and for good reason. Along with the Indian and Banana Rivers, it’s the third piece of the Indian River Lagoon System puzzle. This shallow waterway is packed full of palm trees, salt marshes, mangroves, and plenty of world-famous fish. Hop aboard one of the many Mosquito Lagoon fishing charters on offer, and get ready to explore this incredible fishery!
 
The lagoon offers an amazing array of fishing grounds, and with that comes an amazing array of fish. It’s known as the “Redfish Capital of the World,” thanks to the huge number of this species that inhabit its waters. Other inshore favorites, such as Tarpon, Speckled Trout, and Snook, accompany them. Even better? This fishery is active year-round, so you’ll be able to cast a line no matter when you visit.
 
Mosquito Lagoon’s charter captains offer a whole host of adventures. Newer anglers can test their skills on a four-hour adventure, and the calm waters here are a great opportunity for families to introduce little ones to fishing. More experience under your belt? Opt for a longer eight-hour trip, and test out your sight fishing skills as your captain poles you across these waters.
 
There are charter boats dotted along the entire length of the Mosquito Lagoon, but the most popular departure points are around New Smyrna Beach and the Intracoastal Waterway. The Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, which encompasses most of the lagoon, is also a popular fishing spot. Just make sure you grab and sign a permit first!

January

Snook fishing is forbidden in January, so you'll have to wait a while to battle the "Silver King." Gator Trout are frantically eating up all live bait, as the bait fish are few and far between, so this is the time to get that trophy!

February

Redfish are increasing as big schools move in, with over 100 fish per school! Grab some shrimp to maximize your chances of landing one.

 

March

As the weather warms, bait fish are starting to appear in greater numbers. Black Drum are starting to peak during this month, too.

April

April means one thing: amazing fishing all around. Speckled Trout are numerous and very hungry so they just boil the water! Snook are starting to move into deeper waters, near jetties and other man-made structure.

May

Speckled Trout fishing remains red hot., as does Redfish fishing. Tarpon reach their peak in May and you can catch many smaller specimens.

June

Snook fishing is forbidden in June, but you can still battle Tarpon and plenty of huge bull Reds during this month!

July

In July, juvenile Tarpon are present in the lagoon in large numbers, and you can have a field day fly fishing for them. Redfish can be hooked, too.

August

Redfish and Speckled Trout are coming into full swing, with larger specimens taking the bite regularly. Come hook that trophy Red, or introduce your kids to the fun of fishing for Speckled Trout!

September

Snook season reopens, and these fish are hungry, making them a great target. Tarpon are starting to migrate towards their winter shelters, but can still be found. Bull Redfish are in a feeding frenzy!

October

Cold weather sees Snook moving to their winter hideouts, so cast your line around the lagoon's deeper waters. Redfish and Trout fishing is as bountiful as ever.

November

Gator Trout are feeding up on bait fish in Mosquito Lagoon in November. Casting a line with live bait can bag you a proper keeper!

December

During December, Redfish and Snook school up, and sight-casting with live bait can produce excellent catches. Round up your year with a real trophy-sized specimen!

If fishing in July it is best to not necessarily expect to catch the fish you’re targeting thus referring it to fishing versus catching. Captain Mike was very informative and very helpful.

Great location to fish. Leaving under the north causeway bridge by some beautiful houses with large boats and out of Ponce Inlet with jetties on both sides and the lighthouse is great. Seeing the hotels/condos of New Smyrna and Daytona is really nice. Add in a bunch of fish and this is a great trip.

Pray for a day that was not so windy and cold. Captain Gary did an excellent job under challenging conditions. Filleting the sheepshead must have been brutal in the cold wind. I would not hesitate to go fishing with Gary again.

Be sure to take sea sickness meds before the trip. Bring layers as it can be chilly in the morning trip out to the fishing spot. Bring a cushion to sit on, the seats are not padded. Bring water and a light lunch if it's an all-day trip. Bring binoculars to view sea animals while out on the ocean. Bring gloves for holding on the the pole and fish!

Captain Scott and his deck hand did an amazing job. We had a great start, slow middle then a great ending. The pup sharks were putting great. These two did everything they could to land us an many fish as we could in our 6 hour trip. I will definitely be reaching back out to the Rainbow charter for yet another successful and amazing trip. Thank you so much!

Awesome trip! I had said that I was hoping to catch my first shark. Within minutes we hooked up with the first of many sharks. Next came a very unexpected approximately 100 pound tarpon and the catch and release of a lifetime! Captain Crider then finished out our day by putting us on our limit of snappers. Perfect day!

Al got us onto fish right away. More like importantly, he made me feel like a fishing buddy. None of that pretentious stuff you get from some guides. He wanted me to land fish, and he did a heckuva job. Nice boat. Large enough for a family to enjoy. Thanks, Al. I will be calling you sometime soon.

Good trip this morning with a great captain who made everything a breeze for us! Caught some small fish out at the reef but kept a couple snappers and whiting. Headed to the inlet and caught some nice fish including a red drum and a snook. Overall a great experience and would recommend going with Captain Eric to anyone.
