The late summer bite is on, and has been great!! We've been catching plenty of redfish, trout, and some black drum while working the huge schools of mullet. The redfish and trout have been eating mostly live bait, but we have also been catching some quality fish on artificial baits like Slayer Inc. swim baits and gold spoons. I've had multiple charters catching 20 fish and have been averaging 10 redfish in a half day. Book your trip today! (407)733-3223
Happy 4th of July to everyone!! Fishing has been on fire for reds and trout on the lagoon! We have been catching plenty of slot size reds and some really big Bull Reds too! The best fishing has been early and the bite has been red hot for the first 4 hours or so before it gets too hot. We've been fishing bait pods with live bait and artificials with great success! Most trips have had 10 fish mornings but a couple days we caught over 20 redfish in a half day trip! Book your trip today! (407)733-3223
We have now gotten into our spring time bite on Mosquito Lagoon and fishing has been great! The water in the lagoon is as clear as we've seen in quite some time, and redfish, trout, and black drum have been on fire! The smaller schools of baitfish have been showing up, and fish have been crushing topwater plugs, soft plastics, and well presented flies throughout the morning bite! Tailing redfish are being caught on soft plastic baits and flies, and big seatrout are eating plugs as well as plastics. Fly fisherman have had great success on calm mornings throwing at tailing fish and also cruising fish later in the day. Book your trip today as the fishing heats up! (407)733-3223
Fishing has been on fire for redfish, black drum and big trout lately! Redfish have been in large schools during the low water in the lagoon, making for easy targets on fly and artificilal baits! Soft plastics like the Slayer Lures SST XL swim baits have been top lures for redfish and big speckeled trout! Black drum will be looking for shrimp pattern flies or live shrimp. Springtime is almost here, and the fishing is on fire! Book your trip today! (407)733-3223!
Happy New Year to everyone! The year is starting off with a great bite with redfish, trout, and black drum all over the flats searching for shrimp, crabs, and small baitfish! The cooling water temps have really cleaned up the water clarity making for some great sight fishing for light tackle and fly fisherman. Fish will be tailing in search of food and make for easy targets! Trout up to 30 inches will be roaming the flats later in the morning and can be caught out of sand holes on a variety of live baits and artificials/flies. Looking forward to a great 2017! Book your trip today!
Ever since hurricane Mathew rolled through, the water has cleaned up and fishing has been great! We've had a few cold fronts that have dropped the water temps and the fish have been extremely active all day long! Redfish, Speckled Trout, and even Black Drum are all over the flats and can be caught on a variety of artificial baits, flies, and live shrimp. We've been having double digit trips on reds and trout using soft plastics and seeing schools of redfish tailing on the flats in search of the plentiful shrimp and crabs this time of year. Book your trip today to get in on the "Hot Bite"!
We had a great summer bite and are looking forward to a Red Hot Fall! With higher than normal water levels the redfish, trout, and black drum are cruising the shorelines in search of shrimp, crabs, mullet, and small bait fish and can be caught on a variety of artificial baits and flies. Look for fish to be tailing and "crawling" the edges of the shallow flats and present a soft plastic style lure, spoon, or live shrimp and hang on! The fish are fired up right now and it should be a great fall! Book your trip today!!
Summer is here and the bite has been Red Hot for redfish and speckled trout! The fish have been feeding in the shallows of Mosquito Lagoon on mullet, shrimp, and pretty much anything they can find for the first 4 to 5 hours of the morning before it gets too hot. The key is to get an early start and look for the best fishing to be around the big schools of mullet and wherever you see wading birds along shorelines and sand bars. We have been catching fish on a variety of artificial baits and flies, as well as live shrimp and mullet. Sight fishing for tailing and waking reds has been really good on calm days making for some great sight casting in shallow water! Book your trip today!
April has been a month for Big Trout and some Great Redfishing too! We have been catching all of our fish using artificial baits such as Berkley Gulp jerk shads and Gulp shrimp. The trout have been averaging 20- 25 inches, with some up to 28 inches! Redfish have been tailing on the flats and cruising the shorelines making for some great sight fishing on light tackle and fly! We have been averaging 10 to 12 fish per trip with some 15+ fish days too! Book your trip today! (407)733-3223
Spring is here and the fishing has been great since getting some southerly winds rising the water into the Mosquito Lagoon! Redfish, Speckled Trout, and a few black drum have been eating a variety of baits! In my 20 years of fishing the Mosquito Lagoon I have never seen so many shrimp leaping out of the water while poling the flats. Redfish are tailing in a foot of water or less gorging on shrimp and are tailing aggressively during the first 3 to 4 hours of the morning! My charter today caught 14 redfish and 5 trout before 10:30! I only have 3 days open in the next 4 weeks, so book early!!! Book your trip today! (407)733-3223!
