Growing up along the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean allowed
me to experience some of the best fishing in the world. Fishing the
mullet run for giant Tarpon and Sharks, the extensive flats for Redfish
and Trout, and the mangrove shorelines for Snook provided me with a
lifetime full of memories. As your guide I want you to have the same
adrenaline rush that I've experienced while chasing Florida's gamefish
across these famous flats and inlets.
Indian River Lagoon is world famous for giant Redfish
and Gator Trout. Miles of lush grass flats lined by mangrove
covered shorelines provide rod bending, drag screaming
action as well as some of the best scenery found anywhere.
Schools of Redfish, sometimes as many as 400 per school,
feed in the shallow flats where anglers can sight cast
to these tailing fish. Spotted Seatrout provide great top
water action and both lagoons host some of the biggest
and best Seatrout fishing found anywhere in the world.
is known for its world-class Snook and Tarpon action.
The inlet is extremely rough with a swift current. It carries bait fish out into the
ocean where they're ambushed by trophy Snook and giant Tarpon. An incredible winter
Flounder run brings doormat size Flounder into the inlet along with big Bluefish that
are more than willing to blast a top water plug.
