Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report

May Redfish, Trout and Sightfishing Forecast & Predictions

Tuesday May 30, 2017

May is here and the redfish in the Mosquito Lagoon are chewing hard. We've had several days of double digit redfish numbers and many of them are well into the twenty pound range. May is still a transition month before the hot summer days of June and July set in and you still have a chance to catch a big redfish before summer break. As the Lagoon warms and kids get out of school the Mosquito Lagoon typically becomes crowded and fishing pressure increases rapidly as hot weather summer vacationers take advantage of the warming trend and summer break.

Until school gets out in late May you can expect some great fishing and even some isolation from other anglers pursuing redfish on the clear shallow water flats in the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon. One pair of anglers found fish lately in the Pole and Troll zone on the eastern shore near Tiger shoals. "We landed eight redfish before 9:00am and a couple of real pretty sea trout too." explains an angler after a day with Lagooner Fishing Guides.

May 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

May Sightfishing Forecast and Report: Mosquito Lagoon

During the early summer and late spring the redfish are starting to show up in decent numbers and if the water remains clear it will offer good opportunities for anglers to present lures and flies to them. Trout are really on the upswing in the Mosquito Lagoon and until recently, I've always told people that trout are not typically sightfished, but this is not necessarily true anymore. This year has been a spectacular trout and redishing year and as we head into the summer, it should get good in the morning and evening hours and less productive in the hotter parts of the day. Look for May to be a pretty impressive month for sight fishing in the Mosquito Lagoon on Florida's east coast.

Fishing Forecast

May - 2017 Fishing Forecast

May in Central Florida is the beginning of great things for people looking toward an ocean fishing trip looking for fast action. King Mackerel, Cobia and even a few tarpon start to make a showing as May develops into a more summer like pattern. Inshore the fishing can be productive for early morning and evening anglers as the sun warms the gin clear waters of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Banana Rivers. Both Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout will be a popular gamefish that even the youngest anglers will appreciate and enjoy. Bring plenty of sunscreen, some polarized sunglasses and broadbill hat as the Florida sunshine will penetrate the most protected boating endeavors. May is the beginning of the summer in Florida as far as the temperatures are concerned, but there's often an afternoon shower, so be prepared to fish early and get off the water before the afternoon storms roll in. So remember, inshore fishing and offshore fishing are an equal opportunity in May in Central Florida.
