Back to Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report

Titusville - Saltwater Fishing Report

Back to Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report

Thank you for reading this back to Mosquito Lagoon fishing report.

Monday
No one would fish with me. Something about 20 knot winds and rain. I didn't go either.

Tuesday
I did a short solo trip out of Port Canaveral. The water was dirty. I was surprised how little bait there was, how dead the sea looked. I caught a single ladyfish near the Cape.

Wednesday
Mark Wright joined me for some Mosquito Lagoon scouting, which we tried to do in spite of the 20 knot north winds. We launched at Beacon 42, got to the channel, turned north, and immediately took two LARGE waves over the bow, coming within a hair of sinking the Mitzi. YIKES!!! We made it out of the waves and back to the boat ramp, put the boat on the trailer, and that was that.

Thursday
Not scared off by the previous day, Mark Wright again joined me for some Mosquito Lagoon scouting. It was a day-after-the-front-comes-through kind of day, and the fishing reflected that. We got a handful of dink trout. Mark got a solid slot redfish on a white plastic shad. We saw a handful of fish. The boat was on the trailer about 2 PM.

Friday
The three Swedes met me at River Breeze at 0730. Johan, Stafan, and Robert were very pleasant fellows, excited to be fishing in the United States! The water was lower, not a lot lower, but certainly noticeable.

Like the previous day with Mark, we worked it hard, tossing DOA CAL shad mostly, covering quite a bit of water in the process. The fishies did not respond particularly well. We got maybe 15 trout, mostly small with a few decent ones, and two redfish, one in the slot, one short. We soaked mullet chunks long enough to get two catfish. That was enough of that!

The water temperature must have dropped significantly. We did not see a single manatee all day.

And that, dear reader, is the back to Mosquito Lagoon fishing report. I wish the fishing was better. Thanks for reading!

Life is great and I love my work!
 
Life is short- Go Fishing!
