Title: Mosquito Lagoon Florida, Red Fish

Date of Article: 2008-03-13

Yesterday we had sightfishing nirvana. The Lagoon greeted us with slick calm conditions and tailing Redfish as far as you could see!!! It was absolutely crazy.
Mike (Lost Creek Fly Shop) had shot after shot at Redfish tails and finally connected with this beautiful Redfish. Crab patterns were the fly of choice as these fish were almost standing on their heads digging for small mud crabs. Mike had two more very nice takes but no other fish to the boat. Great job Mike and I look forward to fishing with you again!!!
Mosquito Lagoon is by far one of the finest places to sight fish with a fly rod.With its crystal clear water and miles of grass flats full of Redfish, it is truly world-class saltwater fly fishing. You will be poled slowly along in my Maverick HPX-T
flats skiff waiting for the many shots at Redfish and Sea trout. Sight fishing is by far the most challenging salt water fly fishing there is and with my assistance we can together locate, cast, and hook up on a Redfish of a lifetime. It is truly a team effort out on the flats and there is nothing better then guiding a fly angler to their first or hundredth Redfish on fly!
