Fish of the Week- The Spotted Seatrout!
Tuesday Chris McClemmon joined mefor some Mosquito Lagoon fishing. I hadn't been out there in over a week. The numbers of redfish seem to have thinned some, at least where I had been fishing them. But the trout were on fire. Using a DOA CAL jerkbait Chris got 15 or so to 20 inches, with no shorts. Gotta like that!
Jim Lewis, a fly caster from Colorado, joined me Wednesday. We saw reasonable numbers of redfish. They were very spooky- it was hard to get close enough for a cast. We fished the same places as Chris and I had on Tuesday, but Jim only had one bite, a small trout. At the end of the day we fished along a bar and saw good numbers of trout and some reds, but did not get a bite, in spite of trying four different flies.
We got a late, 10 AM start on Thursday. Rodney Smith, son Alex, and I went to the same bar where I had seen the trout the previous day. We fished it by wading with fly rods. I did not get a bite. Rodney got a trout, Alex missed one. We wrapped it up at noon.
That is this week's Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report. Don't forget Mother's Day!!
Life is great and I love my work!
