Early August can be a hit or miss with the redfish in the Mosquito Lagoon, however as the month unfolds the big breeder redfish start to group up on around the lagoons. Later in the month and into September is probably your best chance to catch a GIANT redfish with some exceeding forty pounds and ocassionally a fifty pounder can be had for the very lucky angler. Watching the redfish gather up over the weeks of August for their annual spawn is an exciting event for guides and anglers in the Mosquito Lagoon, the anticipation as these large redfish staging in the spawning areas and watching the numbers of fish in each pod grow daily into large schools aggregates is exciting. Anglers that come to our area in late August will surely enjoy catching large breeding reds in late August and into September.
I was poling up in the Pole and Troll zone of the Mosquito Lagoon the other day and took a temperature reading of 92 degrees in the flats... WOW! Ninety Two Degrees! I was suspicious about the temperature when we saw no bait nor fish until we looked in deeper waters with a little tidal movement which is not the best for sightfishing. We caught a three nice redfish and a handful of spotted seatrout to make a morning of it. I pursuaded my anglers to try the beaches the next morning where we caught five tripletail to fourteen pounds, jumped a nice tarpon and landed another tarpon in the eighty pound range. We quickly jumped offshore and landed a nice 26 pound kingfish to boot. What a fun two of days with a couple of great anglers!

Lagooner Fishing Guides - Our experience with Lagooner Fishing Guides was top notch. While booking the trip Captain Gina was very patient and answered all of my questions (even after calling 2-3 times). It is worth noting the communication from Lagooner after booking and before the trip was first class and on time. Fishing with Captain Richard was a great experience. I had my 11 year old son with me and Captain Richard wasted no time engaging him in an effort to make my son comfortable. The time spent on the boat was pleasant and conversation flowed freely. It was obvious after a few minutes Captain Richard was very experienced and was extremely knowledgeable of the area we were fishing. Captain Richard worked very hard to ensure we had a good time fishing. When I go back again there is no question who I will be fishing with.
