Ponce Inlet to Mosquito Lagoon

Capt. Joe Porcelli
April 25, 2000
Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

The weather has been consistent for the pact few weeks. Consistently changing that is, one day it will be flat calm and then a front will come through and it will blow. But that is Florida this time of year. That has not changed the fishing just our plan of attack. On those days like today when it is gusting to thirty five mile per hour. We stake out where I know a school of reds are and wait for them to roam the flat.

Today despite the thirty five-mph gusts Greg and Kate Bradshaw caught twelve reds and a nice trout. The day prior in the same conditions Jim and son Doug Larson caught seven reds to twenty-nine inches and a trout. The day before Ron Constatino and son caught fourteen reds to twenty-seven inches. You can still catch fish on those windy days but a game plan change is a must for success.

The past trips talked about were fished in the Mosquito Lagoon on the flats. The deeper flats are holding some nice reds in the forty to fifty inch size range. We have also seen a lot of pompano in the lagoon this past week. They are also hanging on the deeper edges. The edge of the channel in the Indian River is giving up some nice mangrove snapper, anchor up and use shrimp or pilchard for bait. You will leave a few rigs in the rocks but it is well worth it.

Remember: Think like a fish to catch fish.
