Light Tackle heading image

Stalking shallow-water gamefish on Mosquito Lagoon can be one of the most exciting events an angler will ever experience. You will likely be stalking redfish and seatrout in water as shallow as six inches! Given such extreme conditions that present themselves on Mosquito Lagoon, light tackle gear not only makes sense, but also heightens the entire angling experience.

Because the vast majority of Mosquito Lagoon has no obstructions to break your line, hooked fish in shallow water are free to run "at will." When was the last time you hooked a ten-pound fish in 8-inches of water on 6-pound test line? They have nowhere to run but away from you, resulting in a drag-screaming event you won't forget.

Capt. Scott provides top-of-the-line light tackle gear and the hottest artificial lures available to fool every species of fish that swims in Mosquito Lagoon. All gear, lures and live bait is provided at no additional cost and is meticulously prepared for your trip. Feel free to bring along your own gear if you wish. Be sure to check out the photo gallery to see the size of the Mosquito Lagoon redfish that are regularly caught with light tackle spinning gear on Mosquito Lagoon. Redfish exceeding 40 pounds are taken on light tackle spinning gear each year!

Other light tackle opportunities on Mosquito Lagoon include Black Drum, Spotted Seatrout, Jack Crevalle, and seasonal Tarpon.
