11/20/15 07:13 AM DaytonaBeach Area MosquitoLagoon Nov 2015 Redfish by Capt.MikeSavedow

Water temperatures are finally dropping a little now in November to the mid 70 levels after a warm autumn so far in East Central Florida, water levels however are a different story with very high water still in Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River. Plenty of baitfish still around, schools of mullet continue to move down the waterway, slowly working their way south not in a hurry with the warm water temps, once our first chilly spell comes they will speed up their journey to the south Florida wintering grounds. Redfish hunting on a high water lagoon includes targeting shorelines of the uncountable mangrove islands as Reds will gravitate to the shallow water near these edges, also grass flats that are normally too shallow to float a boat are now a good depth of 1 to 2 feet, flats usually fished during normal water levels are currently much too deep right now, flooded conditions make for a challenging pattern on shallow water Reds, but still fun and still catching some fish. Indian River backcountry fishing has been good with plenty of Seatrout and Mangrove Snapper, fun inshore game fish Jack Crevalle and Ladyfish make for great rod bending, regular client Charlie from Pennsylvania arranged a 2 day charter recently, first day on the flats hunting Redfish, second day variety backcountry fishing, both mornings fun and successful, variety trips always have some surprise fish come aboard, this time was a 29” Snook caught by Tom on a live shrimp......................



................ Our flats trip had 5 Redfish up to 26” plus a good Seatrout bonus fish, Charlie with a good spot tail.....................



................. and Tom with one of his good Reds..................



Regular long time local client Donovan did a solo Redfish trip in November, started catching fish at the first spot, catching 5 Reds to 25”, plus a good Trout caught on a live finger mullet...................



Kyle here visiting from Texas, found my website and booked a solo flats trip, a much fun morning with 4 Redfish a couple caught sight fishing a mini flat by a small island with cruising fish......................



Local resident Trevor wanted to treat his girlfriend to a fishing trip for her birthday, so we went Redfish hunting on the flats, started off with a bang, with bites first thing, turned slow in the second half, but we still had a great time, 4 Redfish were caught, birthday girl Amy was trilled with a Red on her first cast......................



Dan and family from Tennessee came with me on a mixed bag variety backcountry trip, catching lots of fun fish , many different species as usual , including good size hard fighting Jack Crevalle from a surface striking school chasing mullet, sight casting in to the white water strikes for instant hook ups........................

Water levels have been at an epic high flood level on Mosquito Lagoon after a heavy rainy season during late summer, Redfish hunting moves tight to shorelines and on shallower grass flats that are normally to skinny to float a boat, with flood conditions having 1 to 2 feet of water on them. A good fall baitfish run has brought plenty of mullet schools moving through being surface busted by Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, and Ladyfish. Indian River backcountry mixed bag trips have been much fun with good action from Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Jacks, Ladies, Black Drum, and always a surprise fish or two. New clients from Iowa came on a mixed bag trip recently and had a blast with great action, they counted 16 different species of saltwater fish caught, Laura got the big fish of the morning this 7.5 lb Black Drum...........................



Carl from California was in town for a meeting and found time to fit in a solo fishing trip with me, also a good bite morning with many different species including many hard fighting Jack Crevalle........................



Repeat local client Claude came on another fly fishing trip in the backcountry having a great time catching a few small fish on fly including a Redfish.......................



Regular client Lorin from central Florida and friends called for a late afternoon flats fishing trip, tough windy conditions greeted us so we were happy to catch a couple quality Redfish.......................



Long time clients Bobbi and Newt from South Carolina did some backcountry mixed bag fishing and some Lagoon Redfishing on their trips this fall, good fun afternoon action in the backcountry including a nice Snook for Bobbi.........................



And Bobbi’s son Bill joined us for flats fishing catching a few nice Redfish......................



Pete with another good Edgewater Backcountry Black Drum.............................

Fall is just around the corner, first cool front passing through central Florida, but water temperatures still at summer levels in the low 80’s, Mosquito Lagoon water still cloudy and fairly high, Redfish still in the summer pattern, scattered and in small schools, adult Seatrout roaming the flats and school size Trout off the drop offs and deeper grass, plenty of mullet, both large size in the shallows and finger mullet schools trying to keep a low profile as game fish are always hunting them for lunch. Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and Bluefish starting to show up as the first early wave of the fall migration heading south of game fish and mullet, down through the lagoon and along the ocean beach. Hunting Redfish on Mosquito Lagoon remains in summer pattern for a while longer, scattered slot size fish mixed in with bait schools in the flats, and small schools of overslots roaming near the lagoons islands and shallows. Two young couples here on vacation from Atlanta went with me on their first ever flats fishing trip hunting Reds, we had very good action with many good bites, landing several fish, the ladies each caught our best 2 fish, Heather with a 31” spottail.................................



..................... and Dana with her 28” Redfish........................



On a mid September flats trip, first time clients from north Florida caught 5 Redfish, mostly early at our first spot in the flats, then catching many Seatrout on deeper grass, off the edges of the flats mid to late morning, the highlight of the trip was the 27.5” Speck caught by Shane on one of the shallow grass flats we hunted.........................



Brett and Dale drove up from south Florida to hunt Mosquito Lagoon Redfish with me and were not disappointed on their first ever flats experience, having a great time, getting to see some tailing Reds, and catching several good fish, Brett caught the largest of the morning........................



A group of friends from central Florida chartered me on a combo trip, part mixed bag variety fishing, a fun start with fast action for a while with Trout, Ladyfish , Jack Crevalle, and more, and part flats fishing, by mid morning we went to the shallows hunting Redfish, Katrina was very happy with her spottail...........................



.......................and Andrew was also with a good Redfish...........................



Repeat client Vic from Orlando booked his annual fall trip and invited his son and friend to come along, we had great results with Trout on live baits, catching many in the slot size, as well as many more small ones carefully released to grow up. Derrick with a good upper slot Speck........................



..........................and Vic with one of the 3 Redfish caught early morning at our first shallow flats fishing hole.............................

Late summer 2015 has been good fishing as well as catching, higher water levels after the last few weeks of a good typical afternoon rainy season, lots of baitfish schools, still lots of good fun Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River fishing going on, with the higher water Redfish hunting locations shift to previously very shallow grass flats now with a favorable depth of 1 to 2 feet deep, also shorelines in places now a good depth, with water out from the islands now deeper. The summer water being cloudy, baits with scent or vibrations can lead the fish to be able to find the offering, some of the largest Seatrout of the year can be caught on a shallow fished bait intended for Redfish, such is the case of this jumbo 29” Speck Fernando caught with me next to a shallow water oyster bar in the Edgewater backcountry.......................



On the same trip young Joey caught this nice Redfish early morning at our first fishing spot, several more Trout also caught this morning on live pigfish baits in the north Mosquito Lagoon backcountry..............................



Repeat clients from Pennsylvania had a very fun flats fishing trip, young Lucas caught his very first Redfish.........................



..................and brother Luke with one of the Trout caught...................



Gotta love a sunrise Redfish at the first stop of the morning like this 28” fish caught by Mike, they had me slip in this photo, the Mike and Mike show.........................



Regular client Darrell with a vacation home in Ponce Inlet brought his friend along on a Mosquito Lagoon flats trip, another good first spot Redfish bite with 4 up to 30”, then off to Trout fishing with quite a few specks, Brad with a good Red picture.........................



New clients from north Florida had a great Redfish result with 6 spot tails , 4 of them were about 31” along with a couple smaller ones, Matt with one of the good ones...........................



.................and Don shows off another one..............................



Mixed bag variety trips as always are much fun, catching lots of many different species, easy less challenging style of light tackle fishing going for big numbers of fish, including Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and Sheepshead, to name a few, my brand new boat the 2015 GulfShore 20’ by Young Boats is great for my Mosquito Lagoon fishing charters.......................

07/19/15 07:20 AM Summer2015 MosquitoLagoon DaytonaBeach NewSmyrna by Capt.MikeSavedow

The summer of 2015 has been great so far, Mosquito Lagoon Redfishing and Seatrout catching, as well as Indian River backcountry variety mixed bag fishing have all been really good with Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, and more. Low rain fall through early summer has our water levels very low, great bait fish populations with huge numbers of mullet schools is a big plus for the local food chain. The low water levels can concentrate game fish in certain locations, and shallow grass flats showing tailing Redfish at times. Bridget and David from central Florida came out fishing with me again catching a few good Redfish on the flats, here Bridget caught and released this overslot 33” Red............................



First time clients from Orlando Sam and daughter Kim had a great fun morning catching a few good Redfish and several good Seatrout on live bait, topped by this “lifetime” size 29” Seatrout caught by dad...................



...................and Kim with one of the Mosquito Lagoon Redfish.....................



A group of new 4 clients from Georgia went with me while on their family summer vacation to Daytona and had great success with 8 Redfish between 33” and 24” as well as about a dozen Seatrout on live pigfish baits, here Dexter with the big one of the morning......................



Regular clients from Tulsa OK went with me again out hunting Reds and Trout on the Lagoon, catching a few good Reds early, then going for Seatrout on live baits later in the morning, Wayne with another catch and release overslot Redfish......................



Going on lots of fun variety mixed bag trips in the backcountry this summer, usually catching a dozen or more different species with light tackle, free line drift fishing with live shrimp, has been a banner summer for Snapper as well as catching Trout, Jacks, and always more species, including quite a few good Black Drum this summer...........................



Kirin and friends here on vacation from Ireland had a great trip catching Redfish, variety species and Seatrout...........................

More regular clients from Georgia, Marshall, Athena, and daughter Miranda had another very fun successful Lagoon trip for 8 Redfish and many Seatrout, daughter with a good Red......................
