Mosquito Lagoon March 2010
<p>Spring is in the air and the fishing is heating up on the Space Coast. With water temps on the rise and the spring bait run is about to kick off. Anglers fishing this month can look forward to the return of big schools of "bull" redfish on the flat's of Mosquito Lagoon. These fish start to school up this month as they make thier way from the deeper water they were they have been laid up in during the colder months. As they roam the shallow water flat's anglers will have the opportunity to sight cast to tailing redfish in the 20-40 pound range in a foot of water. As the bait becomes thicker inside the Mosquito Lagoon top water plugs work for these giants of the flats. If your lucky enough to hook into one, you'll understand why flats fishing is so addicting. Trophy sized sea trout will be mixed in with them as well. Don't be surprised if you cast into a school of redfish, and hook into a "gator sea trout". Both the redfish and sea trout will follow the pods of finger mullet and pinfish in search of a meal.
Pompano and snook are still lurking on the drop offs of the Indian River Lagoon. The heavy winds we encounter during the winter time are passing, and we are starting to see those light south winds that we love so much again. Snook fishing should also fire up this month in the Indian River Lagoon. Snook fishing is still catch and release until later this year. We should see a small wave of small tarpon later this month also move onto the flats and rivers. These fish should range from 10-30 pounds, and a blast on light tackle. As the temps rise during the day night fishing for big snook is promising this month. Snook by nature feed at night. For the anglers looking to plug the mangroves in the back water for snook, redfish, and trout, this is your month. Spring and summer months book fast so book your spot today!

Company: Central Florida Fishing Guides
Area Reporting: Mosquito Lagoon - Indian River Lagoon - Cocoa Beach
Bio: Both Fishing Guides on this site are U.S.C.G Licensed O.U.P.V 6 pack, and fully Insured. Their specialities are light tackle sight fishing on the Mosquito Lagoon, and the Indian River Lagoon, for redfish, snook, tarpon, and Trout depending on the time of year. Both fishing Guides are local and they have spent a lifetime fishing on Florida's Coast. They charge by the angler, not the boat. So if you have more than two anglers looking to fish, you get two boats for the price that other Orlando Guide Services charge for one boat. We see no reason to cram a group of people into just one boat. This way all of the anglers fishing will have the best chance at landing that trophy fish of a lifetime. We can handle trips for the single angler, up to four anglers.
