Fly Fishing Mosquito Lagoon
World Famous Shallow Water Fishing Trips
Wednesday August 23, 2017
Mosquito Lagoon was made for fly fishing and flyfishing is a perfect compliment for the incredable sightfishing opportunities this Floridian watershed has to offer. An abundant redfish, sea trout and black drum population combined with clear water and vast grassbeds makes this saltwater lagoon a bookmark for anglers looking for world class inshore fishing.
"It's an all day fishery in the Lagoon", explains Captain Richard Bradley of Lagooner Fishing Guides.
Nestled in the middle of the Canaveral National Seashore and the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, the Mosquito Lagoon is truly isolated from developement and urban sprawl. Slow tidal flushing from New Smyrna Inlet to the north combined with wind keeps the lagoon supplied with just enough ocean water to keep this fishery healthy and pure without the constant ebbing of the tides. "It's an all day fishery in the Lagoon", explains Captain Richard Bradley of Lagooner Fishing Guides. "Tides are generally not a factor till you get closer to the inlet, and the fishing is very consistant.".
If you're anxious to give your flyfishing abilities a new destination, try the Mosquito Lagoon with it's target rich fishing flats and make sure you bring and assortment of your favorite streamer flies including baitfish, shrimp and crab immitations.

Inshore and Offshore Charter Fishing near Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Florida. Catch redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and many other saltwater gamefish aboard the world famous Lagooner flats fishing boat with renowned Captain Richard Bradley.
Captain Richard was great company on the boat. He's a blast to hang out with and will glady joke around with everyone. When it came to the fishing it was a tough day to start but we were able to find a school of drummer fish. He was able to spot a school of fish from his boat which was pretty cool. We caught a good 20-25 lb black drumfish which made the whole trip worth it. For sure recommend captain Richard.
