This Weeks Fishing Report<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>

As our summer time weather heats up on the Indian River Lagoon Coast of Florida, so goes the fishing. In the Lagoons of Mosquito, Indian River and Banana River, water levels are still low, and the water is clean and still not showing any signs of our typical summer alga blooms. These conditions have facilitated some of the best sea trout fishing I can remember, with good numbers of oversize trout being caught. On several charters over the past week, several dozen trout were caught and most were larger fish. Our best results are coming on top-water plugs like the Rapla Skitterwalk fished in very shallow water in the area of mullet schools. As for redfish, the catching has been tough in the areas I've been fishing.<o:p></o:p>

On the freshwater side, the bass fishing has been off the hook on the St Johns River. Schooling largemouth and sunshine bass have been feeding on menhaden schools between first light and 10 a.m. To locate these schools, first look for shore birds grouping and busting fish. Once located, work the areas of busting fish with small top-water plugs and small swim baits. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>

All in all, the catching has been great, so get out on the water and enjoy it while the weather holds.<o:p></o:p>

As always, if you have any questions or need more information, please contact me.<o:p></o:p>

Good luck and good fishing,<o:p></o:p>
