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.
New Smyrna Beach is a quaint beachside town that has been awarded the Florida’s Best Beach designation by the Orlando Sentinel four years in a row. New Smyrna Beach’s small town flavor keeps folks coming back year after year. Our Accommodations page provides links to local establishments. We are happy to offer help for any aspect of your vacation.
“We had a blast fishing and will definitely visit you again. Captain Karty is a real pleasure to fish with. Any time you're catching fish too big to keep, you're fishing with the right guide. It was just a perfect trip.”
-Don from California

“Capt. Karty knows just where to go to find fish and he helps just enough!”
"Karty knew exactly where to find fish. Even with bad weather conditions we still caught fish. Thank you both for the awesome fishing experience. Fishing topwater is one of my favorite ways to catch Bass but Reds beat them hands down."
-Brad Ribbens of Plymouth, Wisconsin
