Mosquito Lagoon RV Park: Shrimp Netting

Netting shrimp is a very popular activity in the Mosquito Lagoon. Our shrimp are large and sweet. The best time of the year to ‘shrimp’ the Mosquito Lagoon is usually during the winter or spring, however, this area is known for its abundance of shrimp year-round. Limitations apply to the amount of shrimp you can harvest and a license may be required. Please follow all FWC regulations.

Shrimping in Oak Hill

Bring your own boat and use our boat ramp or boat docks. We’ve even had guests net shrimp from our dock! We also provide kayaks, if you want to see the lagoon from a different perspective. Boating is a great way to experience the beauty of Mosquito Lagoon and the abundant wildlife of the area.

Go oystering – our favorite – or go clamming and have an old-fashion Clam Bake. Want to have a party? Be sure to ask about using the Tiki Hut  for a get-together.

When on the water remember: safety first. Shrimp netting is best done at night, so be sure to have your boat, canoe or kayak properly lit! During shrimp ‘runs’ there can be a mass of boats using the channel. Make sure you can be seen! Mosquito Lagoon can be very shallow depending upon the tide. We also have manatee zones, oyster beds, and other water hazards so please follow all markers and rules. Whether it’s for a day, a week, or the season, you’ll be glad you came!
