  • Fishing Lodge

The Club is a non-membership fishing and hunting organization, with the same team operating in two different areas, two different lodges, and different times of the year. We are a close team: owner- Gordon Baggett, hostess/ manager- Angela, executive chef- Bill, and a small group of professional guides. We began as a fly-fishing lodge in the Florida Keys mainly for tarpon and permit fishing during the peak months of April - July. The guides are each avid outdoorsmen and pursue other fishing and hunting year-round. Another great season is during Fall months, in the famous Mosquito Lagoon for world-class redfishing. Also in the Fall is Florida's alligator hunting season.


The area of the St. Johns Marsh where we've hunted alligator for so long is coincidentally just adjacent to the ideal redfishing of Mosquito Lagoon. So we secured a different lodge in this area, now operating the Bahia Honda Sporting Club for both. We offer trips for redfishing only, or for alligator hunting only, or combine them both for a "cast and blast" type trip, daytime redfishing and nighttime alligator hunting. We are very flexible, and we accommodate our guests for any length of time, any arrangement you prefer.

Either fly-fishing or spinning rods, the guides are trained FFF fly-casting instructors and available to help with fly casting technique. Or redfish are easily caught on spinning rods also, for conventional anglers.

Alligator hunting is strictly mandated by the State regarding licenses and areas, and it is prohibited to hunt alligators with a firearm. Instead, we offer a choice of weaponry - a lightweight harpoon is our most effective weapon. A crossbow, bow & arrow, and spear gun are also options. All alligator hunting is done on the Marsh at night, and out of high quality airboats - 600 hp Corvette motors.
