Fishing in the Mosquito and indain River Lagoons continues to improve now that the weather has stabilized. Water temperatures have reached the 80's and some tarpon have begun to appear. On two days this week, tarpon, redfish, trout slams were caught on board my boat. The topwater trout bite has been steady with walk the dog style plugs producing the best results recently. Ladyfish and jacks can also be caught on the same lures around the many mullet schools. A slower retrieve seems to work better for trout, while the ladyfish and jacks prefer a fast retrieve.

Several schools of oversize reds have been providing consistent action as long as they do not receive too much pressure. A slow steady approach to these fish will allow you to get extremely close to them. Live baits cast in front of the schools have been resulting in hookups. Mark Massey, from Georgia, landed a 52" monster on a live blue crab.

Slot sized reds are also tailing in the morning hours in extremely shallow water. Soft plastic jerk baits will fool these fish. A few large trout can also be found in these same waters. Gold jerkbaits produced both reds and trout catches this week.
