The Mosquito Lagoon is a world-renowned fishing destination. With an abundance of Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Snook, and other species, it’s easy to see why anglers flock to the area.
The lagoon is best known for its Redfish, with the most successful method being sight-fishing with artificial lures. Most of the Redfish are under 27 inches long, making them catch-and-release targets, but some over-slot fish can be found as well.
Trout fishing is also very popular, and large Speckled Trout can be caught using a variety of live baits and artificial lures. If you’re looking for a little more excitement, then try your hand at catching Tarpon. These majestic fish can reach lengths up to 8 feet and provide an unforgettable experience when hooked.
Lastly, there are plenty of Snook lurking in the shallow water around the mangroves. Live bait works best for these tasty gamefish. Whether you’re a serious angler or just a casual fisherman, the Mosquito Lagoon has something for everyone.
