Redfish & Seatrout/DaytonaBch/NewSmyrna/Orlando/Florida

Monday, May 31st, 2010

Kelly also caught this 27” Seatrout which weighed almost 7 pounds. To further show up the guys on the boat, she also caught this 31” Redfish at 11.5 pounds. We are still having fun Edgewater Indian River Backcountry trips with lots of easier fishing type action, lots of Jack Crevalle and Ladyfish with Trout and Black Drum in the mix also.

I offer Mosquito Lagoon Flats Fishing trips for Redfish, Seatrout, & Black Drum .This type of sight fishing can be challenging and very rewarding when you hook up with a drag pulling Redfish, Drum, or Trout. Good for experienced anglers or the less experienced anglers looking for a new fishing challenge. I also offer Indian River Backcountry Fishing trips, that is mixed bag fishing for Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Bluefish, Snapper, & many more saltwater fish. On the average Backcountry trip we catch between 10 and 15 (or more) different species of saltwater fish.You never know what will bite with this type of fishing, mainly drift fishing while free lining live shrimp on light tackle make for lots of rod bending and drag pulling. Fun for experienced anglers and an easy way for less experienced anglers to be successful at catching lots of fish.

Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Guide Report – May 18th, 2010

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

The fishing the past couple of weeks has taken off fantastically. No doubt that it is here to stay for the long haul. From here on out it will continue to just get better and better as the warm summer days approach. Next thing you know it is July. Just awesome! There is nothing better than fishing in the summer in Florida. A few tarpon have been seen here and there in the Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River which is a great sign. If these tarpon are seen in the lagoon and river they will be along the beaches in full force in not long at all.


Redfish, trout and black drum have been on fire on the flats in the early morning on the Mosquito Lagoon and very active throughout the day as well. As long as the sun stays out and the wind and weather work with you the fishing will be very intense. The key as always is to get an early start and avoid other boats at all cost. If you see another boat flats fishing try your hardest to avoid them, they may be approaching fish in a quiet way. Again 600 to 800 feet is a good thing and not that much on the water but just enough to give your fellow angler the space they need. There is more than enough water to fish in the area, it just takes some work to find it. Use tactics such as trying new areas and you will discover new grounds to fish. You never know until you try. Stealthy approaches are important to a good days success, so take your time and pole towards fish as much as possible.


Redfish are feeding on numerous baits. Mud minnows, live small blue crabs, live mullet, shrimp and plastics seem to work perfect. Weed less rigged DOA shrimps and CALS will produce very nice catches of redfish and trout. Black drum are perfect candidates for the fly fisherman. Use a small black crab pattern or shrimp pattern for feeding drum and hook ups should follow.

Trout are finally being caught in fairly good numbers which is a really good sign after this winter. Top water plugs are always fun for these apex predators and there is nothing like seeing the explosion of this hit on the water. Search drop offs and sand bars for smaller trout and search the backcountry flats and pot holes for the bigger trout that will be secluded. As with all of the fish you catch please handle them with extreme care for the perfect picture and even better release. Also with water levels low use caution for your navigation.

Fun Fishing/Daytona/NewSmyrna/Orlando/Florida

We are always having fun hunting for Redfish when fishing on Mosquito Lagoon. Pictured are my friend and client Randy and his son Scott showing off the 30” Red that Scott caught fishing with me on the flats. We caught 6 Reds while sight fishing a school on a beautiful, calm, Mosquito Lagoon morning. The other picture is Jake from North Carolina and his 5 pound Black Drum caught on one of my Edgewater Backcountry mixed bag trips. Also caught were 3 other Drum along with Seatrout, Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and more. Summer is coming soon with its picture perfect calm mornings, and light w

arm breeze, then our cooling afternoon sea-breeze. Fishermen and fish alike will be enjoying our wonderful, East Central Florida, Indian River, and Mosquito Lagoon salt water backcountry.
