Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report

July Redfish, Trout and Sightfishing Forecast & Predictions

Sunday July 15, 2018

I don't know if I beleive in global warming but this July of 2018 is proving to be one of the hottest years that I can remember. Hey it's Florida, it's supposed to be hot in the summer! While the fishing has been good in the early mornings on the Mosquito Lagoon, I've tried to steer my costomers a little further south toward Port Canvaveral for a day of excellent fishing off the beaches. Tarpon have been roaming the beaches and big king mackeral are stricking live baits and dumping spools. I love this type of fishing and it's difficult to be pursuaded back to Mosquito Lagoon during this hot summer month when 2018's temperatures seem as hot as ever. Several of my guide friends look to the Florida Keys in the summer take advantage of the cooler tidal movements, it might be wiser to call Captain Gina and get a report on what I'm doing around Canaveral and Sebastian Inlet before setting your mindset on Mosquito Lagoon.

The Lagoon is progressively turning into a morning catch and many of my anglers are booking half days to catch thier limit in redfish before the fully rises and the mercury breaks into the 90 plus degree mark. Guys, bring a white colored tee or cotton button-down because the summer sun will cook even the lightest colored columbia shirts and tees. Girls, well bring your bikini and you'll get a tan and stay cool while you fish. Did I mention the mosquitos?

Mosquito Lagoon Trout Report

July Spotted Sea Trout Update

When you can find cooler waters in the Mosquito Lagoon, you'll often find some of the best sea trout fishing in the world. Since the constitutional net ban in the 1990's were implemented the trout fishing has rebounded back and our anglers are catching them by the bucket loads lately. Smaller trout are being caught on the transition edges of the flats where the water drops to 3-6 foot or more with small jigs, shrimp on popping corks or small topwater lures like the tiny torpedo. Larger trout are being caught in the shallower water when the water temperatures get comfortable enough.


Sight Fishing Report on the Mosquito Lagoon

July Sightfishing Forecast and Report: Mosquito Lagoon

Mid Summer and July has brought on it's high temperatures and scorching sun on the Mosquito Lagoon. Look to the early morning for some excellent sightfishing for both redfish and trout. I wouldn't recommend a full day of fishing for anyone during the month of July, but a four or possibly a six hour fishing trip is perfect for most anglers. Light spinning tackle will pick up most of the early fish with twitch baits both hard and soft producing the lionshare of the fish.
