    Mosquito Lagoon is a one of a kind estuary where the Red Fish spend their entire life. Unlike regular reds that migrate and go offshore to breed this particular type is born here and spends its entire life here. With the loss of habitat in the past 8 years the numbers have been going down significantly which is why the catch and release only regulations for the entire Indian River system.

    While the fishing for Bull Reds hasn't been what was expected this time of year the other species have been really active. Night fishing at the causeways has been good for Snook with an occasional Red. I had a charter with international customers following Icast last week and they caught 19 species. One was the monster Barracuda which ate another one which was a permit the customer had battled for 5 minutes and had to the boat twice before it became bait. The reds have been there during prime tide times. Still getting some slot size reds in the lagoon on artificial with an occasional trout.
