Redfish and Seatrout Schooling more Prevalent

Capt. Michael Savedow
December 18, 2015
Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

Staying mild to warm so far this late November and now into December 2015 here in East Central Florida and our inshore saltwater area of Mosquito Lagoon and the northern Indian River. Water temperatures still up in the mid 60's to 70', along with high water levels, chilly weather should arrive somtime soon, cold fronts along with north winds will drop water temperature and levels. Lagoon flats Redfish and Seatrout remain more scattered than schooled with the late fall pattern hanging on, schooling will become more prevalent after some winter chilling arrives. Clarity has been improving with pretty clear water in places but still cloudy in others, more healthy grass on the bottom keeps the water clearer with less exposed silt to suspend, where flats with less grass tend to cloud easier with exposed mud bottoms. Sight fishing will continue to improve as winter arrives bringing colder and cleaner water for Redfish and Trout hunting on Mosquito Lagoon. This time of year more the off season for my charters which calls for more scouting trips looking for fish to bring clients to later on. I do as much looking as fishing while searching the flats, but making some casts of course is part of the fun. Here I am with a fine 27" Seatrout I caught on a Gulp shrimp jig, one of my go to winter artificial choices, this fish waked out off the shoreline I was working, pitched the bait in it's path and hooked her up, all of the largest Spotted Seatrout are females and best released for future breeding, so we did CPR, catch, photograph, and release on this one.....................................
