Baitfish school numbers are as good as we have seen in years with large mullet shoals, pilchard and menhaden numbers.Backwater fishing with loads of variety including Seatrout, Snook, Redfish, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, Whiting, Jack Crevalle,Ladyfish to name a few, and always other some surprise catches like Tarpon, Sheepshead, and Mutton Snapper. On the Mosquito Lagoon flats we have been sight fishing skinny water Redfish, finding small schools and single fish in the shallow grass, off the edges live bait Trout fishing also good this summer with a couple Reds, Jacks, andquality Snapper coming up out of the drop offs also. Long time central Florida clients George and Joe came on their annual July tripon the flats, George caught the largest Red of the morning, sightfished out of a school and 31” long ………
