Ponce Inlet to Mosquito Lagoon

Capt. Joe Porcelli
January 31, 2000
Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

This past week was the coldest temperature yet this winter. It was not only cold but it was windy to boot. That kept us off the water for about four days. After that the temperature came back up to the seventies and it was like paradise again. The reds in the Mosquito Lagoon are bunched in schools looking for an offering like a shrimp or blue crab. Jennifer Thomas and Beverly Gundersen fished for the first time ever; they caught ten reds to thirty inches, two flounder, trout and black drum. I know my first fishing trip didn't go that good, then again I didn't go with a guide.

We have taken a good number of trout this week in the Lagoon also. The deeper holes in four feet of water or so seem to be holding the numbers as well as the gators. In the past few trips we have taken we took between fifteen and thirty-five trout per day. We took most of them on a pumpkinseed colored 12 Fathom slam'R fished on the bottom with a quarter ounce jig head. After a sunny day you will find the trout moving up on the shallows to seek warmth. If you fish them here you should throw a shrimp at them and fish slow as you can stand it.

At Ponce Inlet you can take some nice size sheepshead around the rocks. The rocks are also holding a lot of snook, but you have to play the waiting game to get one of them to eat.

Remember: Think like a fish to catch fish.
