June 17What's biting?60 lb Mahi - Mahi

Today we had to run to Miami in the afternoon around 3pm because we had a fishing tournament on Friday morning so our three boats the Lady Pamela 1, 3 and 4 along with two other fort Lauderdale charter boats headed down that afternoon on the way down we all stop an caught lie bait like cigar minnows and threadfin herrings with some small blue runners mixed in there. Once catching all this live bait we headed to Stiltsville which are houses in the middle of Biscayne Bay five miles from the mainland and tied the boat up and cooked a nice dinner.

June 18

This morning we all woke up around six and got the boats running and ran 6 miles to dinner key marina where there were 30 charter boats all pulling in at the same time to pick up our clients. It was a little busy trying to find our people because everybody was schedule to a pacific boat once getting all this started out we were off to the races. We ran out of fisherman’s channel and started fishing as soon as we got to a 100 feet of water. We were fishing six lines with fresh Bonita strips and sea witches. The Bonita’s were solid we must have caught 25 Bonita that day trolling an a few short king mackerels that we had to throw back. Then around 1 PM we had a nice bite on the long right rigger bait the line was scream in off the reel the girl Sam jump into the fighting chair and reeled in a 40 lb. wahoo a reel nice fish. The wind was out of the south east at 5 mph an fishing was a little slow for the fish we want to catch so we decided to go into the shallows witch are 15 to 30 feet an get up into the tower of the boat that is 30 feet above the water an look for cobias because they counted in the tournament. It’s a little late for them to be in there this time of year but it was worth a shot it wasn’t a hour and we saw a 50 lb. cobia but we lost him in the grass flat and when we were trying to find the cobia we saw a sailfish in the sand so we threw every type of live bait we could sardine, threadfin, ballyhoo, pilchard, goggleye, the fish would not eat we started to pick up an run to make the weight in and my friend Wally saw another sailfish 100 yards off my bow we caught get there before him he hooked the fish an caught him it is cool to see the sailfish in that shallow water like that.

Catching has been great the last few weeks here on Mosquito Lagoon, I have had many fun Redfish and Trout trips on the flats with up to 8 to 10 Reds on some trips along with many Speckled Trout on some trips also. We are targeting the Reds mainly with fresh cut mullet baits which can make for an easier style of fishing for anglers with less flats fishing experience. When available we may try live Pigfish for the Trout off the edges of the flats. My Backcountry mixed bag trips have had nice summer action with lots of fish and fast action, although a smaller average size of fish, what makes this style of fishing so fun is the constant bites from many species of saltwater fish. Here are a few pictures of clients with fish from the last couple weeks trips. Some nice Redfish from the flats. From the Backcountry a nice Black Drum and Trout.

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. Summer fishing on the grass flats by sight fishing in 1 to 2 feet of water, as I pole the boat over the clear shallow waters hunting for fish, by late morning we usually have a great cooling easterly sea breeze which feels great on a summer day. As we are out catching fun saltwater fish we will be seeing lots of wildlife up close and personal near the boat with Dolphins and Manatees on just about every trip.
If you are looking for a more laid back trip, summer 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, & other saltwater fish. On the average Backcountry trip we catch over 10 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.
. We will pick the best choice of which type trip will be the best for “catching” on your day out with me depending on your preferences for a fun day.
MY BOAT COMFORTABLY ACCOMMODATES 1 TO 4 ANGLERS
