February 2012 starts with warmer than normal winter conditions here on Mosquito Lagoon, water temps have ranged from 61’ to 67’F the last few weeks, and the water level has been extremely low, our Redfish are still schooled up making for fun sight fishing on the calm mornings on the open grass flats, on windy days we are fishing spots in the lee of the islands out of the wind. Select live shrimp are the go to bait for sight fishing winter Reds, live finger mullet and cut mullet best for bait soaking with less than perfect sight fishing conditions. Still catching a few Seatrout along the way as always here on our Lagoon. Here are pictures of Leah Ann and Cory on their first flats fishing trip with some of the Reds they caught including a fun double header.
Dennis and Karen had a great time on their charter catching a bunch of Redfish including this nice one the biggest of the morning.
Backcountry mixed bag trips have had really good action, the milder winter has lots of fish out moving around with water temps in the 60’s. Free line fishing live shrimp on the drop offs along our channel edges are bringing constant bites from Trout and Bluefish, with a sprinkling of Drum, Sheepshead, Flounder, Whiting, and more species. Adding a few stops in back bays and coves have caught several Edgewater Redfish lately.
Looking forward to Spring as many more species of fun inshore saltwater schooling game fish will return to our waters from their south Florida wintering grounds during March making the fun easy type fishing style of my Backcountry trips even better with more variety of fish on every outing.
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 many different bird species on every trip.
