Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report
This is the week I am usually snow boarding the slopes of WV but there are fish to be
caught and faces to add smiles too.
Well after the water got colder the fish moved deeper and so did we. Me and my Gulp that is. Bouncing Gulp baits on the bottom produced many fish for Kevin Pace and Anthony. They caught 65 trout 5 redfish and 4 flounder on light tackle. This type of fishing if one of my favorite ways to fish. On almost every cast in the right spot you will catch a fish.
The next day was the same type of trip for Michael Denner and Don. They caught over sixty fish. Then I mention to Michael, watch, I will hook one on just a jig hook. I caught one on the first bounce off the button, then Michael caught the next 12 with out bait. Every day is not like this but when it is it's awesome to catch so many fish in such a short time. I want to mention this again as I do when catching large numbers of fish that we are to release unharmed. Always use a dehooker when releasing your small trout that you are not going to keep. DO NOT TOUCH THEM WITH YOUR HANDS. DO NOT USE A RAG TO HOLD A TROUT THAT YOU ARE GOING TO RELEASE. If you have to hold a trout to dislodge a hook or something wet your hands before touching him. If you will do more harm to the fish trying to remove the hook, just cut the line. One other thing you can do to your jig is crimp down the barb to minimize damage.
