Fly Fishing Mosquito Lagoon
World Famous Shallow Water Fishing Trips
Tuesday June 27, 2017
Mosquito Lagoon was made for fly fishing and flyfishing is a perfect compliment for the incredable sightfishing opportunities this Floridian watershed has to offer. An abundant redfish, sea trout and black drum population combined with clear water and vast grassbeds makes this saltwater lagoon a bookmark for anglers looking for world class inshore fishing.
"It's an all day fishery in the Lagoon", explains Captain Richard Bradley of Lagooner Fishing Guides.
Nestled in the middle of the Canaveral National Seashore and the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, the Mosquito Lagoon is truly isolated from developement and urban sprawl. Slow tidal flushing from New Smyrna Inlet to the north combined with wind keeps the lagoon supplied with just enough ocean water to keep this fishery healthy and pure without the constant ebbing of the tides. "It's an all day fishery in the Lagoon", explains Captain Richard Bradley of Lagooner Fishing Guides. "Tides are generally not a factor till you get closer to the inlet, and the fishing is very consistant.".
If you're anxious to give your flyfishing abilities a new destination, try the Mosquito Lagoon with it's target rich fishing flats and make sure you bring and assortment of your favorite streamer flies including baitfish, shrimp and crab immitations.
Mosquito Lagoon Flies
Clousers - Variations of clousers work well in the the Mosquito Lagoon. Bring an assortment of colors from chartreus to black and everything in between.
Shrimp Patterns - Everything in the Mosquito Lagoon eats a shrimp, so bring your favorite shrimp patterns and weight them differently. Make sure your flies have weed gaurds too.
Poppers - While not used as widely you might consider a foam popper in almost any color variation to add some excitement to the fishing.

June - 2017 Fishing Report
June - 2017 Fishing Forecast
June of 2017 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 2016 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.
