Saltwater fishing in New Smyrna Beach is an angler’s paradise. Located on a barrier island with the famous Mosquito Lagoon to the south and the Indian River to the north, these spectacular fishing grounds are home to some of the largest varieties of fish species in the state attracting avid anglers from around the globe.
Mosquito Lagoon, for instance, has meandering tidal flows, grass-flats, and oyster bars that create conditions for some of the best tarpon fishing in east central Florida. Here, anglers have the opportunity to catch Tarpons that have made this area one of their favorite habitats. The best time to fish for them is from July to mid-October, during their migration from colder waters in the fall.
Mosquito Lagoon is also one of the best places for inshore fishing. Species such as Spotted Sea-trout, Redfish, and Snook are here in large numbers, and can be spotted along our inshore fishing charter where Captain Jason will offer his tips to help make your fishing trip a memorable success.
Inshore fishing along the Indian River is also a lot of fun.

Tarpon fishing season is from October to November and the Indian River produces Tarpon in the 50 – 100 pound class making it one of Florida’s best places for Tarpon fishing. Our inshore fishing charter follows the shallow water flats giving guests a fishing experience they will remember.
