Destinations on the Inshore Saltwater Lagoons

Mosquito Lagoon is to the north surrounding the Canaveral National Seashore and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. You will discover this location a bit more secluded. There is a year-round fishery of inshore saltwater species with plenty of wildlife and stunning natural wonders to behold.

The Indian River Lagoon stretches the entire length of the Space Coast just east of Central Florida. Fishing opportunities run galore throughout the year. Being selective with various locations to launch from, I like to move around the Indian River Lagoon with the changes in seasons and the migration of species.

Sebastian is to the south. With the rich waters flowing through the inlet, this place holds spectacular snook fishing during the fall months. The spring continues to blossom with a wide variety of bay and flats fishing around the spoil islands.

Inshore Destinations

Each one of these destinations is unique to fishing throughout the year. Being on the water full-time I will make sure to give you the best opportunity suited for the day you choose for getting out fishing.

Coming for Vacation, a Disney World Visit or Business?

You definitely need to plan a day on the water! Get away from the every day Central Florida Attractions and let yourself and family enjoy being on the great wide open waters. Spring to Fall is good for deep sea fishing trips, especially the summer months with kids. Inshore fishing is consistent year round. Make sure to book your Disney World fishing adventure ahead of time.

Lagooner Fishing Guide

Can you imagine how many times have I’ve heard from families visiting the Central Florida theme parks and attractions? “I’m so over waiting in long lines while listening to droning songs like ‘It’s a small world. After all,’ all I want is to relax and enjoy the peace and quietness of a day in the sun.” On the positive side, Central Florida offers many activities for families or the outdoor enthusiast looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of theme park overload.

Growing up east of Orlando on Florida’s Space Coast, I can relate to visitors on vacation overload. I’ve been to every theme park and the recreational areas around. As much as I like them, I also have disdain for crowds of people in noisy parks and streams of tourist. Fortunately, there’s relief from this chaos just a short few minutes away from the epicenter where Mickey & Minnie Mouse reside. I’d love to have you, your family and friends on a private fishing charter. Let me take you fishing in Central Florida. Prior to, make sure to give us a call when you plan on visiting.
