Mosquito lagoon dec 2015

Trip Info


Well, we finally have some colder weather in the forecast just in time for Thanksgiving. This is what we have been waiting for. With the extended cooler weather, the lagoon will get much clearer quickly so the sight casting will be awesome. The best bets for sight casting are live shrimp, Z-man Paddle Z, and flies. Work the flats slow and look for tailing fish or cruising fish in the shallow clean water. On days with cloud cover, work top water baits around mullet schools or the Z-man jerk Shadz on weedless hooks. The Trout trick on trout eye jig heads will also work great. For the less experienced anglers, try cut mullet on the bottom in sand holes or on the edge of shore lines. The reds will start to school as we get colder and the water drops with the December north wind.

I still have some openings Thanksgiving week and through New Years. Its a great time to enjoy some quality water time with family and friends.
Hope every one has a safe and wonderful holiday season!

Tight lines,
