Mosquito Lagoon/Pine Island Sound Fishing Report

Mosquito Lagoon/Pine Island Sound Fishing Report

Monday Tammy and I went out on the Indian River Lagoon for scouting purposes. It was windy. The water was not completely gross, a plus. I got one bite from a puffer, who chewed up my plastic shad.

The cinnamon rolls at Sunrise Bread Company were delicious.

Wednesday Bob Duport, from Western Mountains Fly Fishing, joined me for some Mosquito Lagoon fly fishing. We saw some fish here and there. All fled at our appearance. Bob finally got a good shot at a redfish, which was very interested in the fly. I don't know if the fish missed the fly or Bob missed the fish, but at any rate we did not get it, and Mr. Skunk was all over us. Bob, thanks for fishing with me and for your good humor.

Thursday morning dark and early I hopped in the chariot and drove to Pineland, where I met son Alex. We paddled our kayaks out onto Pine Island Sound on a fantastic day weather-wise. We were casting soft plastics, picking up a skater trout here and there. A hardhead cat ate my lure. We got a couple ladyfish. I stood up and started sight fishing.

A mile or two of shoreline yielded four redfish and two small snook. I didn't catch them or even get a shot. That's what I saw.

We fished potholes for a while. More trout, two exciting sailcats, and a small cobia (the fish of the day) was the result. We were off the water about 4 pm.

Friday we got a rental boat at Pineland Marina. I've always thought Lee County boaters were the world's rudest, and Friday strongly reinforced that opinion. We were anchored at a tarpon spot when this geek motored up to us a cast away, shut off his motor, pulled out a fly rod, dropped the trolling motor, and started fishing. I know I don't own the place, but would he want that done to him?? There were several other examples that I won't go into.

We did see some very unhappy tarpon. We caught a couple lizardfish, a couple blue runners, several ladyfish, quite a few bluefish, and several seatrout, two of which were quite handsome. We were done before 2 pm, after which I drove home again.

And that is the Mosquito Lagoon/Pine Island Sound fishing report!

Life is great and I love my work!

Life is short- Go Fishing!
