Father’s Day Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report
Thank you for reading this Father’s Day Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report! And to all you dads, Happy Father’s Day! I just spent my morning cutting grass.
The skiff was not available while the trailer was being repaired. So early Tuesday morning I met Bob Reed at Snow Hill road for some Econlockhatchee fly fishing.
It’s been raining a lot. The river was blown out. So we just went home.
Once home I checked the gauge – it was over 5 and still rising. The river won’t fish for a while.
Ed Wasicki joined me for some Mosquito Lagoon scouting. We did not stay anywhere long. There were several places to check before the storms started. But I got a slot red, and Ed lost one. Ed also got a couple nice trout, one well over 20 inches. And there were a few dinker trout too. We were off the water a little after noon. The skies opened up shortly afterwards.
Sebastian Fasanello, a fly fisher from Buffalo, joined me on Mosquito Lagoon. We went to a spot, fished tailing redfish all morning (!), and then left at 11 AM.
Hadn’t seen this in quite a while!
Sebastian boated three slot fish and missed a couple strikes. The fly of choice was a black and purple streamer. It was a pretty awesome morning!
Sebastian was happy with his redfish!
I have a lot of non-fishing things to do this week. There may not be a report next week.
That’s this week’s Father’s Day Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report! Thanks for reading!
Life is great and I love my work!
Life is short- Go Fishing!
