Mosquito Lagoon Shallow Water Guided Trips
Fishing The Flats For Redfish And Spotted Sea Trout
Saturday October 21, 2017
While "shallow water fishing" may not be unique in the angling world it's genually unique to the Mosquito Lagoon as it's average depth is less than five feet, with most fishing action taking place in less than a meter of water. Gamefish are often seen feeding and foraging for shrimp and crabs in the shallow grass beds along sandbars and shorelines where lightweight specialized fishing vessels equipped with jackplates and and hulls designed for the specific purpose of running in skinny water that is often less than twelve inches deep.
Mosquito Lagoon Guides have boats with poling platforms that put them above the glare of the sun, looking down at the clear water with polarized sunglasses. Today's modern shallow water skiffs are often made of carbon kevlar for lighter profiles and shallower running. It's amazing what a proper boat can do for fishing the Mosquito Lagoon with an experienced guide.
Both of Lagooner Fishing Guides skiffs are made to run in skinny waters but the foundation of shallow water fishing is done with a proper "Flats Boat" like our Action Craft 1820. While our Bay Boat will operate in less than two feet of water, the Flats Boat will pole along easily in less than a foot while your guide scours the vast saltwater grassflats for gamefish targets.

October - 2017 Fishing Report
The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.
Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.
