Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report

Not much of fishing report to give as I have only been out one time since the last update. Extremely high winds forced the cancellation of some charters and kept me inside until yesterday. The forecast looked good so I decided to check out Mosquito Lagoon and watch the Space Shuttle launch. Unfortunately, the weather was not as predicted. High winds and solid cloud cover made sight fishing nearly impossible. I did find several redfish tailing and fooled them with a 1/4 ounce DOA shrimp. I threw the 5.5 inch DOA CAL in Morning Glory to some sand holes and picked up a few trout over 24 inches as well. The wind never died down but the clouds did give way just before the launch.

The water level is still very high in the Lagoon giving the fish plenty of places to roam. Redfish can be found nearly anywhere but I like to concentrate on the most shallow water I can find. The big trout are holding around sand bars with mullet schools on them. All trout must be released through the end of the year.

Hopefully, the winds will subside and allow for some improved fishing conditions. When they do, look for the reds to be tailing throughout the day. The DOA shrimp and crab are my go to lures for tailing fish.
