fly fishing

Over the past ten years, the redfish, or Sciaenops ocellatus, is second to none when it comes to the growth of saltwater fly-fishing. The shallow water habits of redfish on Mosquito Lagoon give saltwater fly anglers everything they long for…a visual target and "bulldog" fight once hooked.

Mosquito Lagoon Redfish

Mosquito Lagoon is home to the largest concentration of redfish in the State of Florida. With expansive grass flats and a thriving ecosystem, it should be no surprise that Mosquito Lagoon is a premier fly-fishing destination for redfish.

For traveling anglers not wanting to deal with the hassle of transporting their own equipment, Capt. Scott provides the absolute best fly equipment available today from companies like Abel, SAGE, and BAUER. All flys and leaders are provided at no extra charge Each one is hand-tied by Capt. Scott himself, and more importantly, they are proven to fool Mosquito Lagoon redfish.

Other Mosquito Lagoon species available to fly anglers include Black Drum, Spotted Seatrout, Jack Crevalle, and seasonal Tarpon.

Beginner and advanced fly anglers are welcome. Capt. Scott provides patient instruction if needed and takes great pride in guiding an angler to his first Mosquito Lagoon "redfish on fly."
