Capt. Karty could live and fish anywhere in the world, but he chooses to stalk the
Redfish and Speckled Seatrout of
Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River estuary system. Mosquito Lagoon is located
one hour from Orlando on the east coast of Florida.
Redfish and trout are always finding new ways to frustrate and deceive anglers, creating an addicting challenge for everyone. The natural habitat of Mosquito Lagoon is a haven for mammals, birds, reptiles and fish, where trout, flounder, and other sport fish flourish. Dolphins are an everyday sight and Manatees are prolific in the warmer months. Mosquito Lagoon boasts the most diverse bird population in North America from birds of prey, like Osprey and Bald-Eagles, to a multitude of shorebird species.
Captain Karty's Boat is a well loved 19 foot tunnel hull that offers a smooth ride ride to wherever the fish are. The front deck is clean and perfectly suited for Fly Fishing. Our boat performs for everyone, from the many families with young children to the older folks. Our boat can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers, or a wheelchair.
