Fishing With Bait On The Mosquito Lagoon
Using Live And Dead Bait For Redfish And Trout
Wednesday August 23, 2017
Live bait fishing can be an productive and unique experience for many anglers on the Mosquito Lagoon. Various types of live and dead bait can be utilized to catch redfish, black drum, sea trout, snook and tarpon.
The photo of Fiddler Crabs above taken by Captain Richard shows a resident of the lagoons and saltwater marsh areas and are eaten by every form of gamefish in Florida. While redfish, black drum, pompano and sheepshead favor these crabs, other species will take them readily in certain conditions.
The predominant food for most game fish are the abundant fin fish including the mullet, pinfish, pigfish and mud minnow. Knowledgeable anglers utilize these when the need arises. Fresh caught cut bait or live bait can make a difference in the outcome of a fishing day, but frozen bait can often do the job.
Shrimp are the most readily available commercial live bait for anglers and are the preferred live offerings to sightfished reds and sea trout. A few dozen of these tasty crustaceans and leftovers can be put in as a perfect compliment to the fish dinner at the end of the day.

Great Fishing, Great People! - I have been honored to share a boat with Captain Richard on more than one occasion. He and Captain Gina are super super kind, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. I have been blessed to fish from Canada to Florida, and I can give only the highest of praise to Lagooner Fishing Charters. I plan to fish with them many more times in the future.
