On Sunday I made a trip out of Port Canaveral in the 22′ Pathfinder TE in search of the great tasting/hard fighting Cobia along with a couple hundred other boats doing the same. We found a few pods on Manta Rays and a few free swimmers. 3 Cobia were boated and a couple were hooked but popped off….3 Triple tail were also landed but one was a hair short. Danny and Charlie had plenty of fillets to take home with them!
Today I made a trip to the Mosquito Lagoon with Cory Willis for a half day. I kind of had an idea of where an unpressured school of redfish were that I found 2 days ago. Sure enough, they were still at the same spot where I had left them. Cory landed 2 nice sized redfish on the D.O.A. Baitbuster and a topwater lure, and had plenty of topwater explosions and hook-ups that came unbuttoned. It was a spectacular sight to see big reds come out of the water to take the topwater.
Right now is Prime Time for Mosquito Lagoon Redfish OR Cobia off of the Space Coast on the fly or on spin. If you would like to book a trip, call me at 321-303-7805 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
