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.

Speckled Seatrout



“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

“We'd like to thank you for such a great trip. My dad simply loved it, and hanging out with Karty was a lot of fun. We really appreciated your help with our last minute plan changes, and, well, we got some great fishing!”

-Pepe Jr., Pepe Sr. and Jean Paul

"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

Captain Karty's Day-5 Tunnel Hull

karty day 5 tunnel hull

Captain Karty has been stalking reds and trout in Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River since the 80s. He started out with a 15 foot skiff. Only being able to accommodate two anglers led to adding a pontoon boat for larger and more relaxed parties. We experienced many memorable tarpon catches in the Indian River fishing out of that pontoon boat.

Karty began his search for a boat that could fill all his needs and found the Day-5 Tunnel Hull. He has one of the few boats that can accommodate four anglers, and do it comfortably. If you are fishing as a single, you get all the attention and all the fish.The boat is sturdy and stable in the water, even under power in the chop that sometimes occurs. When you step off the dock and onto the boat, the boat does not move. It is roomy with a clean deck, perfect for flyfishing.
