Redfish & Seatrout/DaytonaBeach/Orlando/NewSmyrna/Florida

Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

Redfish are taking up residence in their summer locations as the water temperatures and levels have risen on Mosquito Lagoon, Florida. Large schools of Mullet are gathering on the newly flooded flats to escape predators in the deeper water, making for good feeding by Reds and Seatrout on the smaller size mullet and the other small marine critters disturbed from their hiding places by the mullet milling about on the grass flats and edges. Our great summer live baitfish the baby Pigfish are starting to appear and will be one of the go to baits for Seatrout through the season. On a couple of recent Redfish hunting trips on the flats we had good success, with my long time clients Gene and his son Vince from Ohio, we caught 5 Reds up to 30" on a last minute afternoon charter, pictured is Vince with the largest Red of the day, and Gene with a good Red.

On a morning Redfish trip yesterday, we caught 7 Reds with the largest being a top of the slot fish of 26.5". The fishing style I use for summer Redfishing is a mix of sight fishing and location angling depending on the prevailing conditions presented by the weather, such as wind, sun or clouds, etc. The Seatrout bite in the Indian River backcountry has also remained really good on my mixed bag fishing trips, drift fishing the drop offs and channels near Edgewater. Here is picture of new client Darla with a great Trout she caught on recent trip out with her family on one of my mixed trips, they also caught 5 other keeper Trout along with dozens of other fish as Jacks, Ladys, and more. Also a couple other pictures of clients with their fish from recent trips.

I invite you to fish with me on beautiful Mosquito Lagoon, summer patterns are arriving with calm mornings and the surface of the inshore saltwater lagoon is alive with marine life. By late morning we usually have a great cooling easterly sea breeze which feels great on a summer day. As we are out hunting for fun saltwater fish we will be seeing lots of wildlife up close and personal near the boat with Dolphins and Manatees on just about every trip. If you are looking for a little challenge, we will go for Redfish and Seatrout on the grass flats by sight fishing in 1 to 2 feet of water, as I pole the boat over the clear shallow waters, we will hunt for Mosquito Lagoon Redfish. If you are looking for a more laid back trip, summer is a great time to try one of my Indian River Backcountry trips in the north end of the Lagoon, this is mixed bag fishing for Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, & other saltwater fish. On the average summer Backcountry trip we catch over 10 different species of fish. You never know what will bite with this type of fishing, mainly drift fishing while free lining live shrimp on light tackle make for lots of rod bending and drag pulling. Fun for experienced anglers and an easy way for less experienced anglers to be successful at catching lots of fish.
.We will pick the best choice of which type trip will be the best for "catching" on your day out with me depending on your preferences for a fun day.
