    Thank you for the mention Dave !!
  3. Early summer fishing patterns are emerging in the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon here in East Central Florida with water temperatures in the mid to upper 70’s, over the last few weeks of spring a migratory group of jumbo chopper Bluefish passed by our coast on their way north, with reports of them from area piers, beach, and inlets, we also had some find their way into the backwaters of New Smyrna Beach, long time regular client Gene from Ohio landed this one on a jig lure with trace of wire leader after we had several other lures bit right off the line by Blues heavy teeth, 13 lbs weighed on the boga grip scale………….. The annual multi day trip with Gene and friends had many highlights with great spring pattern catching on light tackle, Gene here with one of the several good Snook of the trips…………….. Ohio friend Scott caught plenty of good fish also including Trout, Snook, and Redfish………………. Friend Adam from Daytona was also along on a couple of the trips, among all his catches were a couple good Black Drum and a 32” Redfish on a live shrimp and light tackle for a big battle……………. As always here in spring, Jack Crevalle are around in good numbers for fun rod bending, most are any where from 1 to 5 lbs, Gene caught an over size backcountry Jack of 8 lbs…………… Gil from Mt. Dora came on a couple trips with visiting friends here for a spring break, Trout catching was good on these trips, Gil with a good one……………. Very long time client Ed from Daytona came on his annual spring trip with a few friends, catching was quite good with all the usual back waters fish, Trout, Jacks, Ladyfish, and Ed was the star catching a great Redfish……………….. Regular snowbird client Dr Peter had a fun trip with his kids, including a 5 lb. Bluefish which ate a jig lure on a backcountry drop off…………...

  4. Springtime backcountry catching is in full swing here at Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River, water temperatures have risen through the 60’s to the low 70’s bringing the migration of game fish through the area, jack crevalle, bluefish, ladyfish, pompano, bait fish like mullet, glass minnows and pilchards. Resident fish seatrout, redfish, sheepshead, snappers, and black drum also feeding on the bait schools and the local shrimp which run here in spring, making a live shrimp hard to beat for a go to bait. Multiple hookups are fun with schooling fish and sometimes surface action with attacks on baitfish and shrimp on the top. Local Linda brought her friends here visiting for spring out with me recently, we had a few good seatrout along with all the other fun species, Linda had the best speck of the morning…… Friend Lori caught the biggest jack crevalle of the trip……………… Last minute trip on a recent afternoon Bryan and friend from Kansas City had lots of fun catching fish species they never caught before including the star of the trip a 5 lb. black drum………………. Longtime regular clients Dr Ed and son Matt who was home from college on spring break had another fun back water trip including several quality speckled trout, Matt had the largest……………… But Dr Ed got a speck almost as big between all the fun jacks and sheepshead……………. Speaking of sheepshead, they are always here to be caught through the winter and spring months, Bill with a nice one…… Almost always some surprise catches on most trips in the backcountry, this time it was a serious 4 lb. Florida pompano caught by Frank……………. Jack crevalle are widespread through the waterway in spring, if they are swimming, they are eating and hard pulling making for always fun rod bending, Zak battled this one on light tackle……………….

  5. Having a fun fall of fishing here on Mosquito Lagoon Florida in November 2013, Redfish and Seatrout catching in the autumn pattern with high water, clear on the grass flats, still a little cloudy in some backcountry areas with a mud bottom. Water temperatures in the middle to upper 60’s, cooling off a little but not yet winter chilly. A few small schools of reds starting to form, but still plenty of single fish. Shoreline areas are still a good bet with the high water, but as of a few days ago noticing slightly lowering water level out on the open lagoon area again making more grass flats a favorable depth of 12” to 20” which is “Redfish depth” in my neighborhood. Still baiting with mullet mostly, throwing topwater lures and weedless jerkbaits in the early morning low light conditions. A recent charter trip with 3 generations from Indiana, grandpa Ken treated son Joe and grandson Danny to fishing with me. All caught some Reds along with Trout, of course young Danny caught the largest Redfish........ And grandpa also caught a nice one. Vic a new Edgewater resident had a great time on a solo trip a couple weeks ago, catching 6 Reds including this 25” spottail. Just a couple days ago I hosted a 2 boat charter with a repeat client and friends out for a bachelor party fishing trip before his friends wedding. On my boat we caught 7 Redfish up to 24” caught by Doug here with his fish. And I got to go fly fishing recently invited by a friend on his boat, after push poling him around for a while it was my turn on the bow, and in short order had a Redfish in front of me, then hooked up on my 6 weight TFO outfit. A beautiful 10 spot fishy. Edgewater backcountry mixed bag fishing is still in fall pattern with lots of variety and fast action from Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Jacks, Ladyfish, and starting to catch some small Redfish in the back waters which will be around through the winter. Most mixed trips we catch 10 or more species usually with some surprises Mixed bag trips are great for kids and family groups wanting some easy fast catching action and great wildlife viewing seeing Dolphins and lots of sea birds up close and personal on every trip.

  6. October 2013 feels great with cooler mornings, nice clear water in the Intracoastal Waterway, and clearing water on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon. Time again for sight fishing Redfish as the water clears. Very high water calls for sight fishing tight to flooded shorelines in the backcountry islands, and over grass flats now flooded which have been almost dry during the low water this past summer. A few small schools of Reds starting to form as the water temperatures cool down and days shorten. Live finger mullet, cut mullet, DOA shrimp and new penny color jerkbaits are my usual fall Redfish baits. Repeat client Russ and his 11 year old daughter Chloe from Orlando came fishing with me recently catching several Redfish and Chloe was trilled to catch her first ever Reds. Regular client Craig also from Orlando brought his sons to fish with me on the flats a couple weeks ago catching 9 Redfish plus a bonus 21” Seatrout. Here is Matthew with his largest Red of the morning. And brother Adam with one of the Redfish he caught on their trip. Edgewater Backcountry mixed bag fishing has been great with the seasonal cooler , clear water the fish have been biting , on a mixed trip a couple mornings ago regular annual clients Jeff and Bonnie from Iowa caught 16 different species of saltwater fish on their trip, including Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Whiting, Pompano, Jacks, Ladyfish, etc, etc. My mixed bag trips are great for kids and family groups wanting some easy fast catching action and great wildlife viewing seeing Dolphins and lots of sea birds up close and personal on most every trip out. This is fun light tackle fishing with live shrimp baits. Regular clients Janet and Teresa from North Carolina had a great time catching lots of Florida fish with me last week on a mixed bag trip, here is Teresa with a 10 lb. Edgewater backcountry Black Drum.

  8. Autumn is getting close as mid September 2013 is here, water temps down a little bit, and starting to clear on the grass flats of Mosquito Lagoon. The mullet run is beginning with schools of finger mullet swimming south down the Indian River channel on their seasonal journey towards the south Florida wintering grounds of all the subtropical coastal fish species. We will be taking advantage of the small mullet by “matching the hatch” using them for Redfish and Seatrout baits during the fall months. Sight fishing will again be part of our routine techniques while flats fishing, as the water continues to clear with lower temperatures. Some of my fun late summer trips include the 7 Redfish morning with Ross, Kyle, and “top rod” Matthew seen here with his 24” Seatrout And showing off his catch of the largest Redfish on the trip at 31.5”. Brad and son Colby from north Florida went with me first week of September catching 8 Redfish including the 30” spot tail caught by 11 year old Colby being his largest lifetime fish so far. A family reunion trip had relatives meeting up from Virginia, Orlando, and Stuart, Florida going on a fun flats trip with me. Sisters Amy and Katie each had the bragging rights by catching the biggest Reds of the trip at 28” and 29”. Very longtime regular client Don from North Carolina did a solo trip last week catching 5 Redfish up to this 29”er and a 22” Seatrout. Edgewater Backcountry mixed bag fishing trips have also been lots of fun and will continue to be through the fall months, a more easy going fishing style, catching high numbers of different saltwater species on light tackle. Most mixed trips catching 8 to 10 or more species including Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and sometimes even a nice Redfish or Black Drum. These trips are great for kids and family groups wanting some easy fast catching action and great wildlife viewing seeing Dolphins and Manatees up close and personal on most every trip out.

We have also had many quality Seatroutcaught on the flats, as the larger Trout do like to hang out in the samelocations as our shallow water Reds. Ed from <st1:country-region><st1:place>Georgia</st1:place></st1:country-region>brought his sons Zak and Cole with me in late July and caught 5 reds to 31”plus a bonus 25” Trout.

  11. The water levels have been extremely low this July 2013 hereon Mosquito Lagoon <st1:state><st1:place>Florida</st1:place></st1:state>, thisis the time when you can best learn to navigate the shallow lagoon area. Thechannels and sloughs are the only runways deep enough for most boats to travel.Some grass flats which normally have a foot or more of water over them are dry,large areas of some flats are seen with thegrass at the laying on the surface while some are seen as slicks telling youthese places are very shallow. You can however see Redfish and Seatrout tailingin this shallow grass, making for a challenging exercise to get close enough tothem to present a bait or lure right on their nose. I have had many great tripsin the last couple weeks, repeat client Scott from Tampa, FL brought 8 year oldGabe with me to hunt Redfish and Trout, catching 6 Reds up to 27” and a 23”Speck, Gabe here with his best fish of the morning <o:p></o:p> And dad Scott with his 27” Redfish <o:p></o:p> David and Rhonda from <st1:state><st1:place>Alabama</st1:place></st1:state>came out with their 2 sons for a morning trip to the flats last week, greatmorning with 9 Redfish up to 30” in size. Fourteen year old Ben here with a good Red <o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> Cody , Jason, and Jay from <st1:country-region><st1:place>Georgia</st1:place></st1:country-region>had a great fun time on their trip catching 6 Redfish up to 30” plus a 25” Seatrout here with Jay. <o:p></o:p> Jerry and Donna from <st1:state><st1:place>Pennsylvania</st1:place></st1:state>also had a super Redfish trip with 10 Reds and Jerry here with his catch andreleased 27” Seatrout <o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> Melissa and Matt from <st1:country-region><st1:place>Georgia</st1:place></st1:country-region>brought the kids with me catching 12 Redfish up to 28”, Melissa had a greattime catching this Red. <o:p></o:p> Every trip out we are seeing all kinds of nature andwildlife up close and personal, we see Dolphins and Manatees on most everysummer time trip, as well as many different bird species.

  12. Redfish have been our main target on Mosquito Lagoon Florida so far this early summer of 2013, early morning trips before the heat and afternoon rain showers. I have had many families out on trips the last couple weeks. Jeff from Georgia brought his kids out with me to hunt a few Reds, here is Leslie with her best fish of our trip a 31” Redfish she caught and released on light spinning tackle. And brother Jeremy with his 26” Seatrout we saw tailing, sight caught and released to keep making more baby Trout for next years catching. Longtime regular client John with his girls Elizabeth and Kate from Ohio were with me while other family and friends were out with a couple of my other guide friends on our 3 boat charter trip recently. Elizabeth here with her 31” Redfish caught and released. And Kate with another good Red, on our boat we caught 6 good Redfish this morning. Repeat client Dave from Illinois fished with his ladies on a fun morning trip last week, wife Debby and daughter Loren with a double header Redfish. They caught several Reds up to 26”. A nature viewing show is part of every fishing trip, as wildlife abounds here on the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon, we see Dolphins up close and personal and Manatees on most every summer trip, as well as many different bird species on every trip keeps it interesting for the nature lovers such as myself.

  13. June 2013 is here, school is out for the kids, the busy summer vacation and charter fishing season has arrived here at <st1:City><st1:place>Daytona Beach</st1:place></st1:City>, New Smyrna, and <st1:place><st1:City>Orlando</st1:City> <st1:State>Florida</st1:State></st1:place>. We will be out often the next few months chasing fish on Mosquito Lagoon. Redfish are in their warm water pattern, most schools have broken up, singles, pairs, and small groups are the summer norm. Water levels rising as we are getting some seasonal afternoon rain showers, and cloudier water means baits and lures with either scent or sound for fish to home in on. My flats trips this time of year are a usually a mix of poling and hunting the shallow grass flats for Reds then also fishing edges, drop offs, and holes with live pigfish when available for Seatrout. Regular client grandpa Bruce brought his son Dan and grandson Chris on a flats trip with me a couple weeks ago catching a half dozen good Reds. Grandpa caught the largest of the trip, an over slot 28” fish making him all smiles for the camera before it’s release. And son Dan pictured here with his largest Redfish of the trip caught at our first stop early in the morning making for cool lighting on his photo. <o:p> </o:p> Just a couple days ago Dr Tim, wife Cathy, and the kids came with me on one of my Edgewater Backcountry mixed bag trips, catching several different species including Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Ladyfish, Jack Crevalle, and topped off with this beautiful multi spot Redfish caught by Cathy. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Always a great nature experience on every trip to add to the fun of chasing the fish, Dolphins up close and personal on just about every trip out, and a great chance of Manatee sightings on most summer trips also, as well as many different bird species on every trip keeps it interesting for the nature lovers such as myself.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> <o:p> </o:p> MY BOAT COMFORTABLY ACCOMMODATES 1 TO 4 ANGLERS<o:p></o:p> Located close to <st1:City><st1:place>DAYTONA BEACH</st1:place></st1:City>, NEW SMYRNA BEACH, <st1:City><st1:place>ORLANDO</st1:place></st1:City>, <st1:City><st1:place>KISSIMMEE</st1:place></st1:City>, DISNEY WORLD, <st1:place><st1:PlaceName>SPACE</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType>COAST</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>, <st1:place><st1:PlaceName>COCOA</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType>BEACH</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>, EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

  14. Summer 2013 is knocking on the door, water temperatures on the rise, subtropical baitfish and birds such as the beautiful pink Rosette Spoonbill have come back from the south. Big schools of mullet have returned to the flats of Mosquito Lagoon <st1:State><st1:place>Florida</st1:place></st1:State>, afternoon rain showers are beginning, live bait pigfish are getting big enough to be caught in nets, all these signs say summer fishing patterns have arrived. We will be prowling the pristine healthy grass flats on the hunt for Redfish and Seatrout, at times using the mullet schools to point the way to shallow water game fish which hang with the baitfish because of food such as shrimp and baby crabs disturbed from their hiding spots by the rooting mullet digging algae from the grass. Also searching grass edges and mixed bottom which are favorite under water locations for lagoon fish. New client Chris came all the way from Colorado to fish with me for 2 mornings last week, he was rewarded with great fun fishing trips, all catch and release for the traveling angler, here he is with a fantastic 28” Seatrout, and Chris with his largest Redfish at 30” of the 6 he caught on his visit, also catching uncountable fun Ladyfish and Jack Crevalle on the mixed bag backcountry part of his charters. <o:p> </o:p> Just a few mornings ago, longtime regular client Dr. Ray and son Jeff from Ohio came on a flats fishing charter, Jeff with his biggest ever Seatrout at 25”, <o:p> </o:p> and Dr Ray with his biggest ever Redfish of 30” weighing about 10 lbs, plus catching a few more Reds on their trip, I love helping my clients catching some of their best fish, and taking the pictures for them to remember forever. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Manatees are back in force as usual for summer around here on the Florida Indian River, as we see them and Dolphins up close and personal on just about every trip out, along with great bird watching on every trip as a plus while we are busy chasing fish. Summer is a great time for my Backcountry Mixed Bag trips also for a much easier kind of sure thing catching, about 10 different species of fish most trips, most being Trout, Jack Crevalle, and Ladyfish, and always several other surprise species caught. Here is regular client Matt with a 24” Trout caught early morning with the rising sun over his shoulder while on a mixed bag trip a couple weeks ago.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> <o:p> </o:p> MY BOAT COMFORTABLY ACCOMMODATES 1 TO 4 ANGLERS<o:p></o:p> Located close to <st1:City><st1:place>DAYTONA BEACH</st1:place></st1:City>, NEW SMYRNA BEACH, <st1:City><st1:place>ORLANDO</st1:place></st1:City>, <st1:City><st1:place>KISSIMMEE</st1:place></st1:City>, DISNEY WORLD, <st1:place><st1:PlaceName>SPACE</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType>COAST</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>, <st1:place><st1:PlaceName>COCOA</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType>BEACH</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>, EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

  15. After a very mild mid winter, March arrived with chilly winter conditions in east central <st1:State><st1:place>Florida</st1:place></st1:State>, dropping water temps back into the upper 50’s for much of the month. Spring time is great for backcountry mixed bag fishing, returning from south Florida are the schools of inshore migrating gamefish eager to feed as they make their way north on an annual trip from winter haunts, following the rising water temperature change and ending up by summer as far north as the Outer Banks NC area. Joining our resident backcountry Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, Sheepshead, and Black Drum will be larger numbers of Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, and Ladyfish making for lots of fun rod bending. Light tackle free line fishing with live shrimp and soft plastic DOA lures are my main technique for fast action. Samantha pictured with a good Seatrout while on her family’s mixed bag trip with me. Mosquito Lagoon grass flats are our location of choice for hunting Redfish, now in a transition between winter and summer pattern for Reds, schools will be breaking up into smaller groups and some single fish as the water warms now that April has arrived. Larger amounts of bait fish also returning from the south will be targets of our attention as Reds and Trout have a habit of shadowing mullet on the grass flats as the baitfish root in the grass for algae, thus displacing shrimp, minnows and other easy pickings for the shallow water game fish. Local clients Derrick and daughter Katlin pictured, were with me recently on a chilly March morning hunting the flats catching a few good Reds and also a couple quality Trout. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> We have great wildlife viewing during every trip here on the Florida Indian River, with Dolphins up close and personal, Manatee sightings on most trips, not uncommon to see a Bald Eagle soaring above, and a large variety of wading birds and Osprey every day. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> <o:p> </o:p> MY BOAT COMFORTABLY ACCOMMODATES 1 TO 4 ANGLERS<o:p></o:p> Located close to <st1:City><st1:place>DAYTONA BEACH</st1:place></st1:City>, NEW SMYRNA BEACH, <st1:City><st1:place>ORLANDO</st1:place></st1:City>, <st1:City><st1:place>KISSIMMEE</st1:place></st1:City>, DISNEY WORLD, <st1:place><st1:PlaceName>SPACE</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType>COAST</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>, <st1:place><st1:PlaceName>COCOA</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType>BEACH</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>, EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.
