Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report
“Fishing has improved along Florida’s Space Coast. During the past few days, calm conditions and warmer temperatures have allowed anglers several opportunities to catch some nice fish throughout our region. To begin with, several nice speckled trout have been caught in both the Indian and Banana Rivers. Live shrimp or small scented jerk baits rigged under a popping cork has worked well during the mid-morning hours. When targeting trout, anglers can expect these fish to feed near sandy potholes in 2-4 feet of water. Anglers should keep in mind trout can be easily spooked at times. Making long casts while drifting can help increase your chances of catching a nice fish,” reports Capt. Keith Mixon of Mixin’ Work With Play Fishing Charters for this Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report.
“A few slot size redfish have also been caught in the northern end of the Indian River. Sight casting to them has worked best during calm conditions. Live shrimp or Bass Assassin’s four-inch Saltwater Assassin’s Shrimp Cocktail in Houdini or Drunk Monkey color has worked well when rigged weedless. The key to hooking up with one of these redfish is to fish the bait as slowly as possible,” Mixon reports.
“At the port, a few tripletail have been caught along the Canaveral buoy line as well as a floating structure. A free-lined shrimp has been the bait of choice for these hard fighting fish. Sight casting is the best way to catch them when conditions are calm during mid-day. Some of these fish have measured up to 22 inches in length,” Mixon reports.
