Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report 11-15- 2011

Last Weeks Fishing Report

The weather conditions are finally clearing up and cooling off along Florida's Space Coast.

On the lagoons this past week, water levels are starting to go down and the water is clearing up. Sight fishing for tailing redfish is showing signs of improvement with the redfish feeding shifting to shrimp and crabs begining.The breeder schools are starting to thin out but are still around, especially in the inlets of Ponce De Leon and Sebastian if the seas continue to settle down.

Offshore, the strong north east fetch and squally weather in the Atlantic kept most boats tied to the dock this week, but as the seas begin to settle down, there's a good chance they'll be out trolling for the last of the dolphin schools heading south for the winter and some wahoo in the early morning on the waining side of the full moon.

Along the beaches and in the inlets of Ponce De Leon, Port Canaveral and Sebastian, the mullet run is starting to slow down but there are still mullet pushing through. There have been good reports of snook and flounder in the surf, feeding on finger mullet, as well as your standard bluefish, jacks and Spanish mackerel, with the best results coming from casting live mullet on a slip sinker rig. The snook fishing has also been good in Port Canaveral and Sebastian, especially at night, again fishing with live mullet and mullet imitation lures like the DOA Bait Buster.

As always, if you need information of have any questions, please contact me.

Good luck and good fishing,
