Gone Fishing Mosquito Lagoon Guide Service

Gone Fishing Mosquito Lagoon Guide Service

I am Capt. Karty Sills, Gone Fishing Guide Service, and I have been providing fishing excursions into Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River for Redfish and Seatrout since 1991. Mosquito Lagoon is located near New Smyrna Beach, one hour from Orlando on the east coast of central Florida.

Stalking Reds and Seatrout in Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River has been a lifelong passion for me.

I still get excited for my anglers and I feel fortunate to have had a career that I continue to enjoy.

I have held Merchant Mariner Credentials issued by the US Coast Guard since 1991 and a Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, National Park Service, Special Use Permit since these were required, over fifteen years ago.

Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Guide, Capt. Karty
"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
"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

• Polarized SUNGLASSES

APPLY BEFORE you leave for your trip and REMOVE IT FROM YOUR HANDS.
Nothing turns fish off more that a hint of sunscreen. And it Kills Live Bait Quick!
Repellent may be necessary for the boat ramp area, mostly in the summer months. There is a good reason they call it Mosquito Lagoon. Generally bugs are not a problem after the boat leaves the ramp area.
BEVERAGES and SNACKS. Bring more water than you think you will need. You may bring your cooler.
For Cool Weather trips, dress in layered clothing.
No Fishing License Required
