MAPPING NORTH MOSQUITO LAGOON TO CATCH REDS AND TROUTS

I am a retired Professional Engineer, and so trained I like to quantify things, such as in boating to know where I am, and how shallow the water is under the boat, for I do not wish to get lost or run aground in the Mosquito Lagoon when I fish for REDs and TROUTs .

Fishing report for weekend of March 30-April 1

 It should be a great weekend to head offshore. Seas are expected to be less than two feet with light south winds. Dolphin catches are best around 160-220 feet, with fish concentrating around surface rips. Look for kingfish on any 60- to 80-foot reef off Canaveral or Sebastian. Rig a live, 6- to 10-inch silver mullet or pogy on a wire stinger rig and slow troll these areas. Cobia are hanging around the same reefs as the kings, so keep a rod ready with a jig or live bait hook. (from…
