Mosquito Lagoon

The Mosquito Lagoon is on most anglers list of go to places in Central Florida for large bull red fish. It is nestled between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean. It stretches from New Smyrna Beach in the north to Titusville in the south. There are many access points any where along the banks of the lagoon as long as one can find a place to park your vehicle and launch your kayak. The lagoon does not have a large tidal flow so water level remains fairly constant. Depending on lagoon location, alligators are present. During the warmer months, mosquitoes and noseeums can be a pest. The south end of the lagoon can be reached via Titusville by crossing the Max Brewer Causeway (highway 402) to Canaveral National Seashore and Playlinda Beach. There is a $5.00 user fee to enter the National Seashore. It is approximately 14.5 miles from Titusville to Playlinda beach.
