It was an interesting week in a number of ways. The weather was unsettled, to say the least.
Monday Tim Baker of East Coast Paddle took me paddleboard fishing for three hours on Mosquito Lagoon. I had never been on a paddleboard before. They are very cool. Read the blog here- http://www.spottedtail.com/blog/padd...squito-lagoon/
The wind was running between 10 and 15 mph though- not good for paddleboarding. Tim got a trout on a jerk bait. I saw six or eight fish as I whizzed by. I should have worn either shorts or waders. Live and learn.
Tuesday was very exciting with trips to both David Maus Toyota and the Veteran's Administration Medical Center in Orlando. Arch criminals stole my arches (that's a joke, folks). There are podiatrists in my future.
Wednesday I got caught in the rain while running on the FT. It was fun.
Thursday was errand and other minutia of life day.
We found quite a few redfish, very spooky ones. They were the kind that you lead six feet with a small, non-descript fly, and when you twitch it when they get close they spaz out and flee at a high rate of speed. Both of us had several shots and all of them ended in identical fashion.
We wanted tailers. We got nervous wrecks.
And that is this week's exciting version of the Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report.
