Mangrove Snapper

Summer Fishing Fun at Sebastian Florida

Tuesday January 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

Mid Winter 2018 fishing has been a hit-or-miss proposition for sightfishing in the Mosquito Lagoon depending on conditions. January's winter winds have turned days of sight fishing into a day of blindcasting or looking for sheltered shorelines in the Pole and Troll zone or leeward shorelines. However, if weather conditions permit the sightfishing is fabulous and the redfish are on the flats in full force.

And guess what? There's not as many anglers in this sightfishing mecca known for plentiful redfish and hot headed anglers looking feveroushly for a secluded flat with feeding and tailing redfish during this time of year! Fishing leading up to and during January 2018 has been excellent for sightfishing in Mosquito Lagoon when the winds are cooperative and challenging when they are not. Captain Richard and a handful of other guides can help you catch your fish in almost any conditions if you're willing to try something other than sightfishing when the winds and weather do not cooperate.

Give Captain Gina a call today if you want to set up a January fishing trip in the Mosquito Lagoon in East Central, Florida with a Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Guide.

PS: The Fly Fishing has been superb for a couple of our anglers when the winds have cooperated lately.
