Happy New Year!! 2018 has started off with a bang with redfish, trout, and black drum cruising the flats in search of shrimp, crabs, and other small crustaceans. A well placed lure, fly, or live shrimp is sure to draw a strike from these voracious eaters this time of year. The cooler water temps have made for great sight fishing later in the morning when the sun is high and the fish are on the flats during the warmth of the day. Come and get in on some great action!!

The late summer bite is on, and has been great!! We've been catching plenty of redfish, trout, and some black drum while working the huge schools of mullet. The redfish and trout have been eating mostly live bait, but we have also been catching some quality fish on artificial baits like Slayer Inc. swim baits and gold spoons. I've had multiple charters catching 20 fish and have been averaging 10 redfish in a half day. Book your trip today! (407)733-3223

We have now gotten into our spring time bite on Mosquito Lagoon and fishing has been great! The water in the lagoon is as clear as we've seen in quite some time, and redfish, trout, and black drum have been on fire! The smaller schools of baitfish have been showing up, and fish have been crushing topwater plugs, soft plastics, and well presented flies throughout the morning bite! Tailing redfish are being caught on soft plastic baits and flies, and big seatrout are eating plugs as well as plastics.

Happy New Year to everyone! The year is starting off with a great bite with redfish, trout, and black drum all over the flats searching for shrimp, crabs, and small baitfish!

Fish will be tailing in search of food and make for easy targets!

Ever since hurricane Mathew rolled through, the water has cleaned up and fishing has been great! We've had a few cold fronts that have dropped the water temps and the fish have been extremely active all day long! Redfish, Speckled Trout, and even Black Drum are all over the flats and can be caught on a variety of artificial baits, flies, and live shrimp. We've been having double digit trips on reds and trout using soft plastics and seeing schools of redfish tailing on the flats in search of the plentiful shrimp and crabs this time of year. Book your trip today to get in on the "Hot Bite"!
We had a great summer bite and are looking forward to a Red Hot Fall! With higher than normal water levels the redfish, trout, and black drum are cruising the shorelines in search of shrimp, crabs, mullet, and small bait fish and can be caught on a variety of artificial baits and flies. Look for fish to be tailing and "crawling" the edges of the shallow flats and present a soft plastic style lure, spoon, or live shrimp and hang on! The fish are fired up right now and it should be a great fall! Book your trip today!!
