Targeting Redfish On The Whales Tail Sandbar

Fishing The Shallow Bar In Mosquito Lagoon

Friday June 22, 2018

Clearly unmistakable from the air is the obvious topography and outline of the Whale's Tail sandbar on the south end of the Mosquito Lagoon. A landmark fishing area where schools of redfish lurk around and feed upon the crabs, shrimp and baitfish attracted to this tremendous outline.

Because of it's proximity in the middle of the lagoon, the Whale's Tail is often a run-a-ground area for unknowledgeable boaters. Frequent groundings have caused sea grass problems and prop scars on the top of the shallowest areas where fish are often seen tailing with backs out of the water.

Find out the secrets of the Mosquito Lagoon and let our knowledgable fishing guides show you the best fishing areas and methods on the Mosquito Lagoon. Call Captain Gina today to set up your fishing trip on the Mosquito Lagoon.
