Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report - 1/1/10

Florida Fishing Report-Mosquito Lagoon (Orlando and Daytona Beach)

Happy New Year!! I wish you a safe, happy and hopefully prosperous 2010. I am looking forward to fishing with you this year and hope to see you out on the water soon!

Now onto the fishing, The last few weeks of weather here on the Mosquito Lagoon have been downright Crazy. Windy and Cold, Slick Calm, Foggy, you name it & we've had it. Hopefully the new year will bring some stable fishing conditions in the weeks and months to come. The water levels AND TEMPERATUREs have dropped dramatically and the visibility is crystal clear. I am looking forward to the fabulous winter red-fishing on The Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River.

When the weather cooperated I was able to take several charters this month. Primarily sight-fishing to laid-up or feeding & cruising redfish. Several large trout were also caught casting to holding fish with live shrimp or plastics such as the Riptide shrimp. Most of the fish are still adjusting to the water temperatures making for some interesting days on the water.

The fly fishing has been challenging this week. Smaller down-sized flies and accurate presentations are the ticket. Try the Bruja shrimp or an olive slider to fish in this low clean water, brighter colors in off-colored water(such as a chartreuse sea-ducer).

Tom & Paul from Delaware joined me for a three-day charter this week fishing on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and had a blast catching reds and trout. These guys were a pleasure to fish with, and Paul is quite a "fishy" guy!! Vincent and Vinne also joined me from Kentucky and caught their first ever mosquito lagoon redfish as well as some fine trout! Great job guys!
