Mangrove Snapper

Summer Fishing Fun at Sebastian Florida

Saturday June 23, 2018

I don't get out in with my kids enough, but when they were younger... This trip always stands out in my mind. Savannah, Mom & Mekenzie on a summer day trip at Sebastian for mangrove snapper in the flats. They limited us out in a couple of hours, got sunburned and then returned for a sunburned nap in the car home.

Look to July and August for productive mangrove snapper fishing in the shallows of the lagoon near Sebastian Inlet.

Fishing Reports

It's June of 2018 and I haven't been hitting the Mosquito Lagoon as often while summer becons me toward more temperate waters to fishing off the beaches for Kingfish, cobia, tripletail and snook. When I have been taking anglers up into Mosquito Lagoon we've been showing up on the water well before sunrise and taking advantage of the milder morning temperatures before the summer boat traffic and fishing pressure starts to rise during the later morning and afternoon.

Redfish bite in the Mosquito Lagoon all year long, I've found that the warmest parts of the year can be the most challenging for anglers to get the fish to cooperate unless they are willing to get out before sunrise and be on location as the sun rises. While this is not always the case, it's often the truth and you'll find many anglers pursuing fish in other areas or looking for cooler waters off the beaches of the Canaveral National Seashore, Ponce Inlet or Sebastian Inlet. I recently took an angler into the Mosquito Lagoon and we landed several nice redfish in the slot 18-27 inch range and also a couple that were below the legal slot limit before releasing them to hopefully be caught when the grow up to Mosquito Lagoon's Legendary breeding size over 25 pounds and 40 inches.

June of 2018 looks to be a great month for fishing. If you're looking to go fishing on Mosquito Lagoon, call Captain Gina at (321) 868-4953. She'll tell you what's biting and where and you'll always have fun fishing.
