March 2015 Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Report

March was a pretty good month of fishing in the Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River, and Banana River….that’s if the winds were lighter than 20mph. The water and air temps have risen up a good amount, almost like as if we never had a Spring and jumped right into Summer. Black Drum were schooled up in big numbers and happily taking flies at the beginning of the month. Sea Trout were also schooled up but very alert of their surroundings. Redfish have been plentiful but it seems like they have gotten a lot smarter this year and can tell what a fake is when you present a fly or lure.  Presentations have to be near perfect to get the bite most of the time.

Craig from Chicago was born missing a few fingers, but that does not stop him from fly fishing. Here’s a nice Sea Trout he got on a 1/2 day trip to the Mosquito Lagoon.
