Mosquito Lagoon's Gallinipper Point and Bay

Fish For Reds Around The Unmarked Sandbars Adjcent To The Canaveral National Seashore

Friday June 22, 2018

Gallinipper is a large mosquito indigenous to the Mosquito Lagoon and evidently numerous enough to have an area named after them. I have no idea who named the Gallinipper area on the lagoon, but there's a Gallinipper Point, Gallinipper Sandbar and Gallinipper Bay on the southeastern shoreline above Eddy Creek.

The southeastern part of the Mosquito Lagoon host large grassflats, sandbars and numerous islands and mangrove riddled shorelines. Large trout can often be seen and caught while marauding the shallow shorelines and sandbars. Redfish and black drum gather in large schools feeding on shrimp, crabs and baitfish. Directly to the north of Gallinipper is the camera pad flats and sandbar for those knowledgeable enough to find them, but Gallinipper is a favorite among kayakers and non-motorized vessels coming out of Eddy Creek.

Gallinipper Basin on the Mosquito Lagoon(actually named after the type of mosquito) great spot to fish for redfish and trout around the unmarked sandbars.
