While on YouTube looking at music I typed my name in out of curiosity. To my surprise a 37 second piece featuring my photos popped up. You can see the piece here…
-Monday found Jim Manual and his friend Zack out in the Mitzi with me, on the Mosquito Lagoon for a morning’s fishing. Fishing was not great, but we did manage a couple redfish and a few trout. The water has so much loose grass in it that about the only lures you can use effectively are jerk baits. DOA’s Deadly Combo works well for trout in the deeper areas.
I ran down to the south end of the lagoon after I dropped them off. It was very nasty on the east side, a dirty, brown mess. No need to go down there for a while.
-Wednesday Howard and Hodges Haycock (some good alliteration there!) joined me for a six-hour trip on the Mosquito Lagoon. Fishing was good, with a solid bite from both seatrout and redfish. Although all the reds were in the slot, they were all at the lower end. The trout ranged from 10 inches to over 24. All but two fish were caught on either jerk baits or a DOA Shrimp. We got about 20 or so fish altogether, a solid outing.
-Thursday Tammy and I launched at Port Canaveral. First thing that happened was a rocket went up! It was mostly downhill after that.
We couldn’t get past the jetties because the ocean was too rough. I spent some time catching mullet. Our next idea was to go through the locks and fish the Banana River Lagoon.
The locks are under repair and only open every two hours. We had just missed the last opening, so a two hour wait was needed. We pulled the boat and went to the Indian River Lagoon.
We looked in several places in the IRL. The fish were fairly scarce. Tammy had one good hit from what I think was a redfish that nailed a DOA Shrimp. The fish came off and that was it for the day as far as catching fish went.
-Friday Dave Carlson and his son-in-law Marshall joined me for a morning’s fishing. Dave wanted to fly fish for redfish. I went to where we had gotten all the fish on Wednesday. Most of them had gone. We had a couple shots in a couple hours and no conversions.
We went into the Indian River Lagoon to a spot I had been finding fish. There were many fewer there than last time. Again, only a few shots resulted and again, there were no conversions.
Marshall got a couple dink trout on a jerkbait and that was it. The boat was on the trailer at about 1 PM. It was a pretty tough day.
And that is this week’s Orlando area saltwater fishing report. I hope it’s better next week!
Life is great and I love my work!
Life is short. Go Fishing!
