Another Orlando Area Fishing Report
This is another Orlando Area fishing report.
Monday Anthony LaBarbera, a fly fisher from New York, joined me for a day’s fishing on Mosquito Lagoon. I’d had a great scout day on Friday and was cautiously optimistic. The fish utterly crushed that optimism- he did not get a single shot. Ouch.
Tuesday I joined Tom VanHorn for a different kind of scouting, based on a report from Chris Myers. We bought 50 shrimp for ten dollars, and using ultralight tackle went fishing out of River Breeze.
I caught eight species- snapper, ladyfish, seatrout, bluefish, flounder, catfish (of course), a puffer, and even a sea robin.
Using two hooks I got doubles on snapper, ladyfish, bluefish, and catfish. WOW! Technical fishing it wasn’t, but getting steady bites was a novelty.
Wednesday Tom joined me for some kayak fly fishing on the St. Johns River. With the exception of water lilies and cattails, all the vegetation was gone. We did not see a bass or a sunfish, nor did we get a single bite. I sure am glad the state is having all that herbicide sprayed out there.
I would like to thank Tom for being in every photo this week!
Friday I went solo kayak fly fishing on the Indian River Lagoon. Unlike my friend Anthony I had three excellent shots, all three of which I thought should have converted. The fish all spooked off the fly. I did not get a fish.
And that is another Orlando area fishing report!
Life is great and I love my work!
Life is short- Go Fishing!
