A Short Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report

Only got out one day this week, on Mosquito Lagoon with Tammy. Thank you for reading this short Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report!

We are still running the book offer- three of my book titles are now available for five cents each, only from my website. Thanks to all of you who have already taken advantage!
Flyrodding Florida Salt
How and Where to Catch Redfish in the Indian River Lagoon System
Fishing Florida’s Space Coast
Shipping is still $5.95 each. The mailers cost money, the post office wants a cut, and the mail boy has to bring the package to the post office. But you can have each of these titles delivered to your door for six bucks until June 15. Act now!

Launched the Mitzi at Beacon 42 around 8 am, so we missed whatever early morning bite there might have been. Worked the outside of the clinkers for an hour, to the tune of two trout. It was overcast, water was not clean, and there was significant wind. Impossible to see anything.

Floated across the flat inside of Tiger Shoal to the running lane. Tammy got a single redfish blind casting.

Worked a couple lee shorelines in the pole-troll zone- nothing.

By this time the wind had changed direction, to NE, and increased in intensity. We ran back over to the clinkers and worked the inside. I got a dink red.

Ceiling was getting lower and rain was in the picture, so we headed back to the ramp, trailering the boat about 2 pm. Two other guys came in, said they hooked and lost a “big” snook, and caught about 30 trout. They were not where we were. As soon as we drove away the skies opened up.

Got the following report by email from Robert Knowles-
“My first time ever in the lagoon. Took kayak out of WSEG and headed North. Fished all the islands up to about a mile I guess. Started top water with no hits at all. Went to a jerk bait had a couple small hits. Hooked a nice trout on shad tail but being new to kayak fishing out there, it got off. I am able to stand in my kayak and did see a couple reds. At about 11am while fishing a jerk bait on a jig head I caught and released a slot red on the point of one of those islands. It was a blind cast. I am still learning the area (your class was extremely helpful in this).”

Thank you for the report, Robert!

That’s this week’s short Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report! Thanks for reading!

Life is great and I love my work!

Life is short- Go Fishing!
