Trout and Snook in Mosquito Lagoon
Date: May 11, 2020
All the areas we fish have been productive this past week. We had some great days fly fishing for redfish, trout and snook in Mosquito Lagoon, and also caught some big bull redfish and nearshore species in the bay boat. Great weather earlier this past week have us some excellent sight fishing and allowed us to catch a bunch of great fish, including some first redfish on fly!
Nearshore and in the inlet channels we caught some huge redfish and had a blast with thousands of 5-8lb false albacore blitzing all around us. A true tuna, they are a great target for light fly and spin tackle. Tarpon should start arriving any time now with this warmer weather, this looks like it will be an especially productive year for tarpon due to the warmer than usual start to the season. I can’t wait to put my anglers on these fish, they are truly the apex gamefish of our nearshore and inshore fishery.
