The Seatrout fishing has been great this January 2011 on Mosquito Lagoon. We have been targeting the deeper holes and sloughs with Gulp shrimp jigs and live shrimp fished right on the bottom in the cold 50’ F water conditions. On most trips the last couple weeks the fish count has been from 40 to 75 fish, mostly Trout, also a good numbers of fun small size baby Redfish, with a few Flounder and Black Drum thrown in the mix. Most trips have had several or more keeper Trout with many smaller trout also in the count. Lots of fun fishing on light spin tackle and mostly artificial lure fishing. On the low wind days we are also targeting the shallow flats Redfish schools, a fun but challenging sight fishing tactic for better size Redfish.
Here are a couple of pictures of clients with the winter Seatrout we have been catching this month.
As Florida spring time arrives and the water begins to warm up a little, we will also start to do backcountry mixed bag fishing trips again for Seatrout, and Redfish, but also catching Bluefish, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Jacks, Ladyfish, and more species. You never know what type of saltwater fish you will pull up. This style of fishing on the mixed bag trips is mainly drift fishing and bottom fishing while free lining live shrimp and Gulp shrimp on light tackle which make for lots of rod bending fun. Good for experienced anglers and an easy way for less experienced anglers to be successful at catching lots of fish.
