    World-Class Fishing Happens Here

    World-class fishing attracts anglers to this small city south of New Smyrna Beach, and many head straight for Mosquito Lagoon. Cast for monster trout and year-round redfish; to add a taste of Old Florida, stay in a bungalow at one of the fish camps. Explore the ancient past at Seminole Rest, which features prehistoric shell mounds and two turn-of-the-20th-century buildings.

    Then bring past and present together at Goodrich Seafood, which began as a retail fish shop back in 1910 and today serves up mouthwatering po'boys, oysters, fresh fish, and delicacies like fried alligator. 

    The Mosquito Lagoon

    Oak Hill is a fisherman’s paradise as it sits right on the Mosquito Lagoon, which is considered the redfish capital of the world. Because of the year-round lagoon population, this is the most unique place in the world to fish for redfish. Most of Mosquito Lagoon’s redfish never leave the shallow waters of the lagoon thus making it the only place in the world you can stalk and sight-cast to adult redfish in the 30 to 50-inch range on clear flats.
