Mosquito Lagoon

:arrow: It's been awhile since my last report... it sure is hard getting up at 4 am, fishing until noon or later, cleaning fish, going back out bait fishing and then coming in and cleaning the boat for the next trip. I've been too tired to do anything else but sleep lately.

The speckled trout fishing is still good and the redfish - are here, there and scattered all around the Lagoon. If you can find them and can sneak up on them before they get spooked you will catch some good ones. It just doesn't take much to scare them.

On one trip this week with a client and his younger sons, we found a nice bite of trout. On the first cast they caught a nice trout and as soon as we hooked him, a school of 10-15 dolphins came to the boat and ate the trout right off of the line. We caught four more small trout and were able to land them, but as soon as we released them the dolphins swooped in and ate them too. The larger dolphins were swimming around the boat and slapping their tails on the water like they were training the smaller ones. I would never have believed it if I had not seen it, but we caught a forty-inch redfish and release him. He was in good shape, and strong. He started to swim off, but a dolphin grabbed him in it's mouth and while he was swimming off, another dolphin was swimming beside him trying to take him from the first one. I don't think they could eat the redfish but threy sure killed it. I have fished here all of my life and I hve never seen the dolphins try to eat everything you released. Either they are getting smarter or lazyier. We finally had to pull anchor and leave that spot.

There are some nice tarpon showing up in the Lagoon as well as some good sized bouy fish (tripletail). Tripletail are some of the best eating fish around. You can find them around bouys or other floating objects. You can sight fish them with a shrimp or a small pigfish.

On Saturday morning I had two men, David and his brother Tommy and Tommy's grandson Chris. we had our limit of trout caught at 8:30 in the morning. We found a great bite of fish on our second stip. Sometimes you just get lucky and everything comes together just right.
