Ponce Inlet to Mosquito Lagoon

Capt. Joe Porcelli
May 1, 2000
Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

The weather in east central Florida has been really pleasant this past week. The reds and trout have been turning their focus on finger mullet this past month. The bait poured into the Lagoon and all eyes were up.

That means there is one thing one should do, break out the top water plugs. Bruce Bradford took several nice reds on top water plugs and had a number of them bating it out of the water. This is not recommended for anglers with a weak heart.

The reds are schooled up on the flats nicely making some days a cakewalk. Believe me we do have challenging days out there sometimes or I would not do this. But it is nice to know of about ten or so schools of reds in your head for back up.

This past week we have had schools of pompano swim up to the flats edge and just bust into the grass. It is a good idea to have an offering to through at them like a jig or piece of shrimp.

The trout have been eating the slamíRs in pumpkinseed and meangreen. You can take trout on plugs and finger mullet also. I caught a Jew fish in the Indian River this week. I was fishing the bridges with grunt when he ate. The river is also giving up some mangrove snapper, jacks, ladyfish and some trout. Outgoing tide seems to work best for this type of fishing.

Remember: Think like a fish to catch fish!
