May 2011/ Mosquito Lagoon Report

Postby spotntail » Tue May 10, 2011 5:17 pm


May has finally arrived and the summer heat has arrived with it. With that being said make sure you use protection while on the water this summer from the sun and the heat. I recommend a lot of fluids and sun block along with cool clothing. The water temps in the lagoon are in the mid to upper 70's and rising which has triggered a great trout bite. Look for the large schools of bait fish moving through the lagoon system and you will find trout and red fish not far away. These fish can be caught on several different baits from live finger mullet to soft plastics but my favorite bait this time of year would have to be top water plugs. I have had several clients in the past few weeks take many large trout and red fish on top water plugs fishing the edges of bait schools. With the water temps still rising means the tarpon are on there migration north so keep your eyes open for them to start moving in the inlets and around the bridges in the next few weeks. These fish can be taken on either live bait or artificial just look for them to roll on the surface and present the bait in front of them for your best chances to hook up.Good luck and be safe!
