Summer fishing patterns have arrived to the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon Florida, rising water temperatures, mullet and baitfish schools continue streaming in from the south, early mornings alive with surface activity and feeding fish waking up with the light of the day. Both flats fishing for Redfish and Seatrout as well as backcountry variety mixed bag fishing trips are great summer time fishing choices here in the East Central Florida inshore saltwater intracoastal waterway. New clients from Ft Myers FL, Dalton, Richie and Brian had an offshore ocean trip planned but were blown out of that plan by high winds on the ocean, so they went flats fishing with me on the calm protected Mosquito Lagoon, of the 7 Redfish they caught, most were of normal size, near the 18” to 27” slot, however Richie got his largest ever 37” Red with a big light tackle battle......................



.................A few good Seatrout also caught this morning, Dalton with a 23” speck....................



On a recent afternoon backcountry mixed bag trip, a group of first time clients from Pennsylvania had a great fun time, catching Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and their favorite catches were a few good Black Drum including this nice one caught by Bobbi.................



I put together a 2 day, 2 boat charter with a group of 6 men from Stuart FL, asked my friend Capt Tony to be the 2nd boat. Flats fishing for Redfish on Mosquito Lagoon was the target of the trip, on my boat the guys had a total of 10 Redfish caught on the flats and also a bunch of Seatrout we fished up on artificials, drifting over deeper sea grass beds. Nick had a great battle with a 31” Red, then had a seat to hold it for his photo...........................



....................Stuart caught the biggest Red of the 2 days at 32”.......................



Lisa and Mark here on vacation from Wisconsin made a morning with me part of their visit to Daytona Beach, choosing a variety mixed bag backcountry trip, catching all the usual mix of fish, including Black Drum and Lisa with a quality Seatrout........................



Jeff and Brian from Orlando came with me hunting Redfish on the flats, we had success with a few good ones from 28” to 30”, here Jeff with a multispot 29” spottail........................



Erick and friends from Georgia did a fun backcountry trip, with some good Black Drum included with the mix of catching.....................

April 2015 has been another great month of inshore saltwater fishing trips here on the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon Florida. Clients catching everything from Redfish and Seatrout, Black Drum and Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, Sharks, Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and more. My backcountry mixed bag trips have been great, 10 or more species on most trips, keeping it interesting waiting to see what type of fish will surface next. Flats fishing trips targeting Redfish and Seatrout on the shallow grass beds at Mosquito Lagoon in the Canaveral National Park waters is fun sight fishing fun while hunting the flats for Reds. At the end of March Chris and daughter Regan went Redfishing with me on a chilly north windy morning, makes for tough sight fishing but each caught and released a large size Red, Chris with a 33” fish, and Regan caught a 31.5” Red she had a hard time holding up, so I got to model it with her....................



Also late March, still cool with early spring pattern, regular “snowbird” client Ed from Illinois did his annual trip with me catching lots of Bluefish, Jacks, and Sheepshead topped by this jumbo “convict fish”..........................



New clients from Indiana Tammy and Shon brought the family with me on a mixed bag trip and had a great time with a super catching morning, some of everything coming in, the kids had a time catching Reds, Sheepys, Blues, Jacks, and mom caught the biggest Speckled Trout................



Amanda, Wayne and their kids from Toronto had a very fun time on their spring break trip, and I had to share this great photo of Aisha so proud of her big Seatrout ..................



Longtime returning clients Craig and family from Orlando went again recently, here Matthew with an oversize Sheepshead..........................



.............. and family friend Brandon with one of the 3.5 foot long Shovelnose Sharks which were around for a couple weeks here in the backwaters, cruising the shorelines, we sight fished this one, a big battle on my light weight spinning rods........................



New local residents Henry and Maria who just moved here from South Florida asked me to take them on an instructional flats fishing trip on Mosquito Lagoon so they could be more successful on their own flats boat, taught them navigating the areas waterway, some fishing techniques, and even caught a couple quality Redfish, here Henry with an overslot 29” fish.....................



James was visiting from England and wanted to catch Florida fish on fly, which he did landing Trout, Jacks, and Ladyfish on his fly rod, then going for more different species on shrimp, catching a couple good Black Drum.......................

03/28/15 09:50 AM Spring2015 MosquitoLagoon NewSmyrnaBeach by Capt.MikeSavedow

Spring 2015 fishing patterns are in full swing here in East Central Florida, inshore saltwater migrating fish are passing through the Indian River on the intracoastal waterway area and backcountry of Mosquito Lagoon, New Smyrna Beach , and Edgewater. Big schools of fun hard fighting Bluefish and Jack Crevalle have been thick for the last couple weeks, joining all of the local resident inshore fish Seatrout, Black Drum, Sheepshead to name just a few of the different fish we usually catch on my backwaters mixed bag fishing trips with usually about 10 or more species each trip. In the last couple weeks clients also have caught Pompano, Flounder, Mangrove Snapper, Whiting, and others. Fun light tackle fishing freeline style with live shrimp and small lures. Here is young Cade with a great Sheepshead from a late winter trip with his family, one of several sheeps they caught along with many Blues and more.............................



Redfishing on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon is always on my mind also, sight fishing is the winter/spring pattern with schooling Reds in shallow water, visually spotting the groups of fish, watching for wakes and in best case scenario tailing Reds like new clients Joe and Jeff from Buffalo NY got to see with me from over size fish feeding in the grass on a pretty calm early morning, well placed select size shrimp sight casting to the fish hooked up Joe with this 29” Redfish......................



We caught back up with the school and Jeff hooked up with his 28” spot tail beauty............................



New clients from Canada, Marylee and Gordon went out 2 days with me, also sight fishing Reds one day, a few were landed and a few pulled hooks, the lady had best luck here with her 33” fish.........................



Gordon caught the best fish on our mixed bag trip with a quality size Black Drum which was hiding in a deep hole in the Edgewater Backcountry and just had to have his live shrimp....................



New client Jim from New Jersey wanted to experience for the first time Redfishing on “The Lagoon” and had a great time seeing many fish waking in schools and also tailing on the grass flats, sight catching 4 Reds from 27” to 30” including this very cool, 12 spot fish......................



Many time repeat clients Matt and family from Kentucky had a very fun variety fishing backcountry trip a few days ago, catching loads of Blues, Jacks, Sheepshead and more, young Drake also caught a nice Seatrout......................



Another nice Black Drum from one of my backwater deep holes caught by new client Mike’s dad on their mixed bag trip.............................

02/21/15 08:44 AM DaytonaBch NewSmyrna Backcountry Guide Report by Capt.MikeSavedow

Winter fishing patterns finally came to East Central Florida by late December into February 2015 with water temperatures dropping to mid even lower 50’s, crystal clear water on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon, beautiful dark green color in the deeper spots, schooling Redfish and Seatrout up shallow, with Sheepshead, Snapper, Seatrout and more in the deep holes. Water levels remain higher than normal for our chilly months after an unusually wet late fall and early winter. On colder days we search the flats for schooling Reds with sight fishing techniques, casting select size live shrimp, a winter time food of choice, live finger mullet will also catch them while holding back off the fish when they become skittish. Craig from Sanford, Florida brought his family to fish the flats with me on a chilly morning last week, targeting bigger fish we only caught a few but they were good ones, Redfish from 28” to 33” at 14 lbs, great battles on the 10 lb test spin tackle. Craig with the smallest 28” spot tail, photo showing the clear cold water in the foreground..................



Son McLean with one of the bigger ones which we caught at midday after a beautiful cold morning sun warmed the water up a degree or two and got the fish feeding better........................



My Indian River backcountry fishing trips are always much fun with winter mixed bag catches targeting Seatrout, Sheepshead, Bluefish, Redfish, and always a few more species. As spring arrives the Jack Crevalle and Ladyfish will arrive back in our waters after wintering in south Florida adding more fun target game fish starting in March. Young Dominick and family had a great time recently backcountry fishing with me.........................



Regular clients Richard and Pat from Virginia and Edgewater went out this week catching 8 Redfish in the shallows, we got to see many more schooling Reds in a few spots that were too cleaver for us to catch, but very cool to see them swimming while sight fishing the winter Mosquito Lagoon flats........................



Rob on a recent trip with a nice flats caught winter Seatrout..............................



Sheepshead are hard fighters, good looking backcountry cold water fish, and fun for kids and adults .....................



Rob and Howard had a great time on their trip with me on another chilly sunny Florida winter day catching a half dozen Reds, these two at the same time with their little double along a pretty tree lined shore...................

01/08/15 07:26 AM 2015 MosquitoLagoon Backcountry Flats Redfish by Capt.MikeSavedow

New Year 2015 has brought an unusual warm winter fishing pattern for the last few weeks to Mosquito Lagoon Florida, water levels remain quite high for this time of year along with above average winter water temperatures in the mid 60’s at this time. Looking forward to some chilly winter weather coming back to lower water temps, extending the winter pattern for a while. Small Redfish schools and scattered fish on the flats, bigger Seatrout in the shallow grass as well as outside off the deeper drop offs, schooling size Trout over the deeper grass flats and edges with mixed spotty bottom. More of a spring like pattern with modest numbers of mullet schools in the area that have moved back from the south with our mild water conditions. Still fishing select size live shrimp as go to bait and small live finger mullet when available, for hunting the flats in search of Redfish and Trout. On one of the last days of 2014 new clients Laszlo and Brittany from Connecticut had a great, first flats fishing experience out with me, good sight fishing conditions helped them catch 5 Redfish with most overslot fish up to 29” and upper slot fish, being good catch and release anglers all fish were sent off swimming. First fish early was Brittany’s...................................



Then a fun double hookup from the same school with simultaneous landing the 2 good Reds gave this great CPR catch photo release shot................................



Another new client from Orlando brought his adult kids who were in town for Christmas out shallow fishing with me, catching 5 Reds up to 25”and a bunch of school Trout, Chelsea had bragging rights with the best fish...................................



Quite a few nice Trout caught on the boat last few weeks, some on live finger mullet while fishing productive locations, mostly mixed bottom areas showing baitfish, some by casting tailed hooked select shrimp while poling grass flats and shorelines while in searching, hunting mode for fishy spots...............................





Another new client Guy brought out family members, all fishermen from Delaware, on a 4 person flats fishing trip on New Years Day, a little tough early this day, catching a few fish , but a strong second half, we ended up catching 7 Redfish to 27”, 3 nice slot Trout and a bunch of school Trout, Reds were caught shallow on shrimp, the better Trout caught on deeper off drop offs with a tiny split shot above the shrimp to get them down. Rick had the hot hand for the morning......................



First time client Darrin from Orlando and his parents had a fun trip a couple days ago, also slow early with just a few fish, we stuck with it catching 6 Redfish up to 23” on the flats near a high water shoreline, mom Joanne was trilled to catch her Red on a live mullet.........................



Also catching quite a few school Trout, dad Bill caught his largest ever Seatrout also on a finger mullet..................................
