Fishing Skinny Waters with Code Red Fishing Charters

Want to learn the secrets of fishing skinny waters? We provide an all inclusive inshore fishing adventure in the shallow waters along the coast of New Smyrna Beach and in Mosquito Lagoon. Our fishing charters take you within a few miles from the shoreline on an unforgettable inshore fishing excursion. Climb aboard our shallow draft skiff and learn the secrets of fishing the skinny waters of New Smyrna Beach, just like the pros.

The Skinny Waters We Fish

We fish right off New Smyrna Beach and in our favorite redfish honeypot, Mosquito Lagoon. Mosquito Lagoon is one of Code Red Fishing Charters favorite fishing spots, and the place where records are to be made! We like to target redfish, also known as channel bass, red drum, red bass, spot-tail, or reds on our excursions. Redfish thrive in the aquatic vegetation of Mosquito Lagoon. The submerged vegetation is the feeding ground for redfish and seatrout. If you want to catch a red with the pros and learn the secrets of fishing skinny waters, aboard a skiff on Mosquito Lagoon with Code Red Fishing Charters is the place to be.

Secrets and Technique

We have the secrets of fishing skinny waters. Captain Matt Lee shares his technique and gear to provide the ultimate fishing experience. He provides instruction on feeding behaviors of the target fish and how they will perceive the bait. He teaches how to adjust the way you cast to mimic the behaviors of the bait fish. If your lure imitates a shrimp, don't work it like a mullet. Captain Matt Lee offers his years of experience to help you observe the signs of the wildlife surrounding you, specifically those diving birds that almost always give away the location of the swimming baitfish. What's behind the baitfish? Your trophy catch!
