Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report

June Redfish, Trout and Sightfishing Forecast & Predictions

Friday June 22, 2018

It's June of 2018 and I haven't been hitting the Mosquito Lagoon as often while summer becons me toward more temperate waters to fishing off the beaches for Kingfish, cobia, tripletail and snook. When I have been taking anglers up into Mosquito Lagoon we've been showing up on the water well before sunrise and taking advantage of the milder morning temperatures before the summer boat traffic and fishing pressure starts to rise during the later morning and afternoon.

Redfish bite in the Mosquito Lagoon all year long, I've found that the warmest parts of the year can be the most challenging for anglers to get the fish to cooperate unless they are willing to get out before sunrise and be on location as the sun rises. While this is not always the case, it's often the truth and you'll find many anglers pursuing fish in other areas or looking for cooler waters off the beaches of the Canaveral National Seashore, Ponce Inlet or Sebastian Inlet. I recently took an angler into the Mosquito Lagoon and we landed several nice redfish in the slot 18-27 inch range and also a couple that were below the legal slot limit before releasing them to hopefully be caught when the grow up to Mosquito Lagoon's Legendary breeding size over 25 pounds and 40 inches.

June of 2018 looks to be a great month for fishing. If you're looking to go fishing on Mosquito Lagoon, call Captain Gina at (321) 868-4953. She'll tell you what's biting and where and you'll always have fun fishing.

Mosquito Lagoon Trout Report

June 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.

Late Spring/Summer

Sight Fishing Report on the Mosquito Lagoon

June Sightfishing Forecast and Report: Mosquito Lagoon

The summer is here and so are the high temperatures that are typical of Central Florida's lagaons east of Orlando. Sightfishing on the mosquito lagoon can be fabulous early in the morning before the mercury rises and the fish are feeding on the shallow water grass flats. Look for tailing redfish in the earliest part of the morning and then start looking for sightfished trout and smaller reds in the sand holes as the sun comes overhead. I've also found that the late afternoon bite before it gets dark can produce some good fishing too as anglers are leaving the lagoon, the fish have learned to start feeding as day comes to an end tht fishing pressure lightens up.

Fishing Forecast

June - 2018 Fishing Forecast

June of 2018 is looking to be a hot summer with hot fishing off of East Central Florida near Cocoa Beach. Orlando visitors should anticipate the warm weather and great fishing that coastal and offshore fishing provides in the warm Atlantic Ocean this time of year. Last year in 2017 we saw many tarpon exceeding 100 pounds caught off the Brevard County beaches along with a good amount of sharks, king mackerel and really big Jack Crevelle that kept things interesting. Looking forward to this year's forecast on the Space Coast remember that the coastal waters along the Atlantic seaboard and Ocean will probably be the most productive fishing during the month of June and as we look in to August the ocean will look to be the most inviting destination for anglers in the heat of the Central Florida Summer.
