I have been fishing mosquito lagoon pretty regularly the last few weeks. Both on my kayak and from shore wade fishing. Launching/starting at biolab boat ramp. Both south and north of the boat ramp just a few miles each way.

The trout bite has picked up these last few weeks… Trout over 20″ have been pretty regular. I have been averaging one over 20″ each trip. Usually just fishing 4 hours at a time, in the morning.

I have been trying all kind of baits and tackle… From live mud minnows, to a variety of soft plastics.

A few catches on each but nothing notable.

Lots and Lots of pufferfish…so plastics may not be the best choice, unless your ok loosing a few.

All my big trout have been caught on the same thing… Topwater lures. Even when the wind has picked up, topwater lures has been the key to my success these last few weeks. Working the shallows, 1.5 to 2.5 feet, casting a topwater spook between the grass patches. A slower pop and retrieve has lead to some massive blow ups and big trout.

Fishing for me is a little slow, but this could be do to the fact that I’m stubborn. Im guilty of fishing a spot for way too long, haha. I think you could easily get on a steady trout bite if you keep working along the shore lines. A few casts in each direction and keep moving. Almost all of my fish have been right when I moved and in the first 3 cast.

Gear used: Fenwick inshore elite 7′ med-fast, Piscifun alijoz 300 reel, Beyond braid 20p

Topwaters used: Heddon chug’n spook, and the yo-Zuri 3d inshore (topknock pencil) 

It’s getting hot…stay hydrated and tight lines everyone
