The water levels in the Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River are extremely high right now which is making for some excellent fishing along the shorelines! Redfish, trout, black drum, and snook can be caught right now on artificial lures as well as bait. Jigs and soft plastics have been working great for all species, but first thing in the morning it's hard to beat throwing topwater for the first hour or so! For those who like using bait we have been having great success using cut pinfish or mullet fished on the bottom in areas holding schools of mullet. We've had plenty of 15-20 fish days using bait the last few weeks, and Tom Brayman and his wife caught 31 redfish with me last Thursday! The bite is on!!
