Another Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report

[h=2]Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report[/h]Bumper sticker of the week:


The seatrout were on fire again this week. See the photos below.

Tried to fly fish the Econ on Monday. The water was just a bit too high. Didn’t get a bite, but didn’t try very hard.

Didn’t fish Tuesday because of the weather, but did go out running along the FT. As I suspected, the chiggers are active. Ouchie.

Wednesday Dee Kaminski joined me for some Mosquito Lagoon fishing. The weather was almost perfect. It was a little slow but fairly steady on both trout and redfish. Both of us threw soft plastics. I missed my last five strikes in a stunning display of incompetence. That particular hook has been retired. A very nice day was had by all, except perhaps the fish.

Thursday son Maxx joined me, again on Mosquito Lagoon. The weather was perfect and the trout were ON in a big way. We got at least 15 over 20 inches in length. Most were onDOA CAL jerkbaits, (yes new penny is still the hot color) but we got a couple nice fish on flies too. Maxx got a couple reds as well.

Friday son Alex joined me on Mosquito Lagoon. Ya shoulda been here yesterday! We got some nice trout but it was nothing like the previous day. It was considerably windier, with nice little whitecaps on the deeper areas. We were in the same places doing the same things.


Saturday I was a volunteer at the Hook Kids on Fishing event on the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. About 50 kids showed up, parents in tow. All the kids got fishing instruction, a fishing rod and reel, a tackle box, and an hour’s worth of supervised fishing, all for free. Great event, great time. Thanks to Anglers for Conservation for putting this and all their other events together. AFC deserves support from all of us!

And that is this week’s exciting version of the Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report.

Life is great and I love my work!

Life is short. Go Fishing!
