REDFISH Mosquito Lagoon, Daytona, New Smyrna Beach, Orlando, Florida

Redfish have continued to be our main target on Mosquito Lagoon. Even with some cold weather and colder water this December, the Reds that we have been catching are still holding to the late fall pattern, that is small schools, singles and pairs of fish. They are still eating live and cut finger mullet, but a large shrimp is also a great choice of bait. On charter trips the last few days, catches continue to average close to 10 Reds per trip, with a few of them being at “top of the slot” or 27” and over, up to 30” these are 7 to 10 pound fish and are a super fight on light tackle. Pictured below is Will on a cold day with a great Redfish and Dave with another good Redfish. As the water gets colder the Reds will start to gather in to bigger and tighter schools for the rest of the winter.

I offer Mosquito Lagoon Flats Fishing trips for Redfish and Seatrout, for the novice or experienced angler alike. I also offer Indian River Backcountry Fishing trips, that is mixed bag fishing for Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and more. On the average Backcountry trip we catch between 10 and 15 (or more) different species of saltwater fish. This type of trip can be extremely entertaining for beginners or experienced anglers. My boat accommodates from 1 to 4 anglers. Located close to DAYTONA BEACH, NEW SMYRNA BEACH and ORLANDO. Feel free to contact me at any time with questions you may have about my fishing charters.
