FFC Charters will offer anglers the opportunity to sight fish the East Central FL shallow water flats of the Indian and Banana River Lagoons in the comfort of a 2018 Maverick 18HPX flats skiff.

    Flyin’ for Bulls

    October 16, 2019

    Of all the ways there are to catch Redfish, tossing a hook covered with feathers and fur and watching a 40+ Bull inhale your presentation has got to be the pinnacle. This happened for me this past week on a scouting trip with my fellow Florida Fly Co Charter partner, Captain Noah Miller. I rarely, if ever, target Bull Redfish but was determined to check off another “Bucket List” fish. This is the perfect time of year for those looking to target Bull Redfish.

      Mosquito Lagoon on Fly

      July 29, 2019

      I’d have to honestly say I cannot remember the last time I have fished the famed “Mosquito Lagoon.” Looking for a little change from the mostly grassless flats and the low visibility that summer brings to the Indian River, my good friend and I decided to hit Mosquito to try our hand at some high pressured and sometimes very picky Redfish.

        Summer Tarpon on Fly

        July 1, 2019

        Finally, with a little break in our recent brutal heat wave, a good friend and I planned a scouting trip to check on one of our favorite Tarpon spots for the chance to put potential charter clients on tarpon with fly gear. We arrived just as the sun was breaking the horizon and despite the voracious no-see-ums the Tarpon were plentiful and actively feeding on Glass Minnows as we had hoped.

          Summer Sea Trout on the Flats

          June 17, 2019

          This past weekend’s charters did not present many opportunities for fishing on the fly, however the early morning Sea Trout bite on top water was on fire. I had the pleasure of introducing a client from Utah to the bounties that the Indian River Lagoon still has to offer. Thursday we boated probably close to 20+ fish which include all we needed to award him with an Inshore Slam consisting of a Redfish, Snook, and Sea Trout.

            Fly Fishing the Flats

            May 19, 2019

            The weather is finally starting to stabilize and fish are stalking the shallows. This time of year can offer some of the best in sight fishing for a multitude of species in shallow water on fly. The transition from Winter’s cooler water temps and the warmer waters of Spring to
            Summer’s patterns is starting to finally take place. There is no better time for big Trout and belly crawling shallow water Redfish for anglers who sight fish on fly. Water levels are still fairly low but clear water is still the key in the North Indian and Mosquito Lagoons. The early morning bite has been very productive using top water Gurglers, especially for Trout and Snook.
