Orlando Florida Report 12/5/09

Post by Capt Chris M on Sat Dec 05, 2009 1:19 pm

Heavy rains the latter part of this week has kept most anglers off the water. Prior to the arrival of the storms, however, the fishing was good for tailing redfish on the shallow flats of Mosquito Lagoon.

Georgia angler Ty, and his son Nick, used a 1/4 ounce DOA shrimp to land several redfish.






The seatrout were also cooperative and both father and son landed numerous fish on three inch DOA CAL tails.

Last week, my wife and I got to spend the day on Mosquito Lagoon. Heavy cloud cover made the sight fishing tough but we both caught redfish on DOA shrimp and 5.5 inch CAL tails.






Early this week, I made two trips to Mosquito Lagoon. On Monday, I was joined by my friend Capt. Keith. Using 5 and 7 weight fly rods, we caught redfish on three different crab/shrimp patterns and missed several more bites. With the water level still quite high, we spent the rest of the day exploring some backwater bays. We encountered only a few big trout but had steady shots at some finicky redfish landing several more before the day was done.

The following day, Matt and Elmo joined me on their first attempt at sight fishing in Mosquito Lagoon. The redfish were happy and tailing for the first few hours of the day. When the clouds rolled in, the sight fishing became difficult and we switched our attention to trout along the edges of the flats. Using the DOA Deadly Combo as well as a three inch CAL tail, my ARC Dehooker got plenty of work releasing a bunch of trout.

The weather will begin to improve tomorrow and with it should come some good fishing. Small baits are the key to fooling the tailing reds which is why fly anglers will do well. Size 4 flies in black, olive, and tan have all been producing bites.
