Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report
Due to the closed season of trout and snook, The most sought after fish in the lagoon the remainder of the month will be redfish. Trout are abundant though and can be taken on Gulp shrimp and shrimp. I like using Gulp for the trout and the other species that will roam the lagoon this time of the year. That is when I am sight casting or just covering ground. Todd and Josh from Michigan took 14 redfish and 14 trout on Gulp. Flounder are one of the species that you might catch lying in a white sand hole or on an edge.
Redfish are still roaming the flats looking for anything not moving to fast. Tails have been up when the feed is on. They have plenty of food on the flats that have been keeping them fat and happy. The shrimp run has been keeping them real happy. But sometimes I fish mullet chunks because a chunk of mullet will not move and it puts out a very distinct scent. The redfish will draw to it and usually not resist the easy meal. Don't be surprised when you pull up an eight-pound trout with that chunk.
Remember: Think like a fish to catch fish or just call me and I will guarantee you do. 386-314-5656
