Mosquito Lagoon, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Mosquito lagoon

As expected, the water levels have come up signigantly due to T.S. Ernesto and a lot of rainy days. The redfish have made thier way into the shallow backcountry bays and have been eating aggressively. It has been a sight-fishermans dream, especially Flyfisherman, having shots at 20-30 fish a day at cruising redfish. Landing 10+ redfish on fly right now is not uncommon. The most important factor for having a successful day, is having some sun so you can spot the fish. Fall is right around the corner and fishing should only get better with the air and water cooling down.
