Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report
Jim Miller, Jason and Mike came out for their annual fishing outing and caught fifteen reds. Most of them were over slot fish, and most were sight cast to. We even got to (dance with rods) on a couple of triple-headers we caught.
The next couple trips I had we targeted trout etc. so we fished the river . We caught many nice size trout (three limits) and 90% of them were 2+ pounds. One gag grouper and a snook ars woopen made for a great day.

The tarpon are rolling like crazy and busting baits filling up before the mad dash south for the winter. The chill was in the air this morning with the wind out of the northwest at 15+ made it feel even colder.

Glad the low has blown by today and the fishing will do nothing but improve. It was a little tough today for most, but we pulled it off with some nice redfish and some trout to four pounds. The total was nine fish and a seagull, wrapped not hooked. LOL. Many cast with the Gulp shrimp and the Johnson Silver Minnow did the trick today. When you have dirty water and blowing 15-20 mph many cast with Gulp = Fish. The silver minnow is also a great bait to cover a lot of ground with and has exhalent cast ability even in strong winds. It is a Go To bait in my tournament fishing when sight fishing is hindered. The vibration it puts out makes redfish mad. I saw it today, the fish attack it not just eat it. I prefer silver over gold in most situations. Don't be afraid to rip it either, I like to change it up if ripping it does not get their attention, or if the fish trailing falls off quickly. Sometimes the crazy twitch will do the trick when a fish does not want to commit. Well if you want to get out on the water when the temps are cool and the fishing is hot this is a good time. You can also see my offshore report for Ponce Inlet. Remember think like a fish to catch fish or just call
