Ponce Inlet to Mosquito Lagoon

Capt. Joe Porcelli
February 17, 2000
Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

The weather in east central Florida has been like spring the past few days with light winds and clear skies. The catching has been even better than the weather. My clients have been catching up to forty reds on the half-day trips along with some nice trout. The reds have been eating well when they are calm. The weekend traffic on the Mosquito Lagoon made the reds a little spookier than normal. In a day or so they will be back to normal. We still managed to catch an average of twenty fish a day this weekend.

The trout are eating shrimp and mean green slamíRs. Work your baits slow on the bottom for best results. For that gator trout use a finger mullet free lined on the flats. The gators are schooled in the white holes and grass edges. It is not uncommon to see ten big trout in a white hole. The flats are still holding some flounder and small black drum. The drum fish are eating shrimp as well as the flounder.

At Ponce Inlet the reds are along the rocks and the sheepshead are on the north side of the Daytona rocks. Sheepshead can also be found along the many rock piles that line the channel.

If you want to tangle with some big blues it is a good time to do so at the inlet. Toss a finger mullet or a plug at them for best results.

Remember: Think like a fish to catch fish.
