Spring Inshore Charters/Daytona/NewSmyrna/Orlando/Florida

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Backcountry fishing has been really great this March here on Mosquito Lagoon, we have been targeting the northern Lagoon backwaters at Edgewater. The spring shrimp run has the game fish keying in on live shrimp which has been our bait of choice on light spinning tackle. Seatrout have been one of the main targets with several slot sized Trout in the 15” to 20” range on most trips, also on some trips a couple of nice keeper size Black Drum or Redfish. The Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, & Bluefish have also been biting well which keeps the action fast on most trips. Here are a couple of recent fish pictures of clients. Chris was out with her husband Ray on a great fun trip with lots of fish, she is holding her best Seatrout of the morning in this pic. Other picture with one of the Black Drum caught on a Backcountry trip a few days ago..

Come fish with me on beautiful Mosquito Lagoon, spring is a great time to try one of my Indian River Backcountry trips in the north end of the Lagoon, this is mixed bag fishing for Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Bluefish, & other saltwater fish. On the average springtime Backcountry trip we catch 10 or more different species of 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.
If you are looking for more of a challenge, we will go for Redfish and Seatout on the grass flats by sight fishing in 1 to 2 feet of water, as I pole my boat over the clear shallow waters, we will hunt for Mosquito Lagoon Redfish, this type of fishing is best done with prime weather of calm and clear conditions.
We will pick the best choice of which type trip will be the best for “catching” on your day out with me depending on conditions for that day.

March 11th, 2011

Today was a full day of fishing for the Lady Pamela II Fishing Fleet. Aboard the Lady Pamela IV with Captain Paul and me, we had two trips. Our morning trip was a group of doctors from Minnesota. Conditions for Sailfish Fishing were perfect. Once we hit open water, we sat right out in front of Port Everglades and began live bait kite fishing. Within the first hour of fishing, Mike hooked up with a non-cooperative Sailfish that released itself just 25 ft from the boat. It was a bummer losing the Sailfish so close, but the group did get to see the Sailfish in action, jumping all over the ocean. The north wind and south current told us it was time to stop at the shipwrecks and see “who was home”, so to speak. Bait was extremely difficult to catch, although we boated a single bait fish. The baitfish wasn’t in the boat for long. We dropped it down and ended the day with a 25 lb Barracuda while fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Things were starting to look up for the afternoon trip. Mark and Megan from Dallas joined Donnie from Tennessee with Captain Paul and me. We ran south to Dania pier, set the Shark fishing, and Sail fishing spread out in 110 ft of water. The Lady Pamela I was also looking for the bite live bait kite fishing. Thirty minutes into kite fishing, I got a call from a fishing friend with great news. We packed up and headed offshore to 700 ft of deep blue water and a rippin north current. I called the Lady Pamela I and they weren’t too far behind us. Within just 20 minutes into live bait kite fishing in deeper water, Donnie hooked a nice size Sailfish and fought him all the way to the boat. Tag and release was expertly performed and we went on our way after a few high fives. The Lady Pamela I went 2 for 2 on the Sailfish bite and spotted 3 more fish free jumping. The Mahi – Mahi showed their faces with the Sailfish as well. Fishing in Fort Lauderdale was a great this afternoon.

Travis, Mike, John and a few others came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV early this morning. The past few days of fishing have been great, with a very nice edge in 750 ft of water. I explained what was happening offshore and the gang decided to buy a dozen goggle eyes for live bait kite fishing. Within 30 minutes of fishing offshore, we caught a 10 lb Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi) on the kite bait. New bait went out and another Mahi-Mahi ate. Two hours before the trip was over, we hooked a double header Mahi-Mahi. After 15 minutes, Travis’ Dolphin was in the fish box while Mike’s Mahi-Mahi was still fighting. Fourty-five minutes later, Mike’s 35 lb Dolphin was gaffed and inside of the cockpit. It wasn’t long before the feisty Dolphin jumped OUT of the cockpit and back into the blue. On the way back inshore I was riding in the tower and spotted a Leather Back Turtle with a school of Cobia. JACKPOT! I quickly spun the boat around and we pitched live goggle eyes into the crowd. A double header was on the line in no time. We called it a day with 6 chunky Cobia.

Fishing in Fort Lauderdale is fantastic right now – don’t get left onshore, call today 954-761-8045

Spring Mosquito Lagoon/daytona/Orlando/NewSmyrna

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Spring has arrived early this March 2011 in East Central Florida, water levels are up on Mosquito Lagoon as well as water temperatures. Redfish schools have spread out through the flats among the islands in the northern Lagoon with the higher water. Schools of bait fish are starting to return from the south and along with them migrating game fish coming back into our backcountry area. We are also having a great early spring Seatrout bite, along with Bluefish, Ladyfish, and also a few Flounder. The backcountry fishing will only get better as calender spring finally arrives and the mixed bag fishing will get into full swing. A couple of pictures from 2 recent charter trips, Richard with a great redfish from his trip with his friend Jim, they caught quite a few good reds on their day. Other picture is Brian and Otto with a Redfish double, also from a great trip with several Reds.

Come fish with me on beautiful Mosquito Lagoon for flats fishing, we will target Redfish and Seatrout. This type of sight fishing can be challenging and very rewarding when you hook up with a drag pulling Redfish,or Trout. Good for experienced anglers or the less experienced anglers looking for a new fishing challenge. Or you could try one of my 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.
