Early Spring Redfish/DaytonaBch NewSmyrna MosquitoLagoon Orlando
We are having an early Spring 2013 here on Mosquito Lagoon Florida. February’s water temperatures have been mostly in the mid to upper 60’s, with a few colder days mixed in. Spring things happening early include Manatee sightings, and Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and Mullet coming up from the south. With the water still cool, most of the Redfish are still in schools, but many are broken up into smaller groups on the warmer days. Live finger mullet have been one of my best baits when available, also live shrimp, soft plastic DOA shrimp, jerk baits, and CAL jigs. Local clients Rick, son Ethan, and friend Mike had a great morning recently with small schools of Reds running along a beautiful Palm Tree lined shoreline with mirror like water, they caught and released 6 Reds up to the 29”er caught by young Ethan.
And a happy Mike with his 28” Redfish caught on a finger mullet from the small schools we could see cruising along this great “Old Florida” shoreline.
Backcountry mixed bag trips have also been great action with the early return of Jacks and Lady’s joining Seatrout, Sheepshead, Bluefish, a few Black Drum, and other saltwater fish, catching at least 10 or so species of saltwater fish on most mixed trips. Very fun easy fishing with light tackle and live shrimp baits. Wildlife viewing is constant all around our area, with Dolphins up close and personal and great bird life on every trip out. Here is Dave with a nice Trout while he and son Doug did an Edgewater mixed bag trip with me a couple weeks ago.
Quality size Seatrout also love the pristine grass flats of Mosquito Lagoon. Catching a couple of them not uncommon while hunting Redfish on the flats here in the National Park Refuge waters of the Lagoon.
