Orlando Fishing Report August 1, 2012

The Space Coast has been hit hard with a super alge bloom inside all three of the Lagoons. The Mosquito Lagoon and north Indian River Lagoon have been hit the hardest. The alge bloom has turned the water dark brown making sight fishing really hard. Reports have come in from the state of Florida that a huge loss of sea grass may impact the Mosquito Lagoon for a long time to come.

Capt Mark has reported the nearshore beach fishing between Cocoa beach and Sebastion Inlet is producing great action and clean water. Sharks and tarpon have been good along the beaches, most have been blacktips, on live pogies and even dead baits on the bottom. Also kingfish and bonito have been active starting in about 50 ft of water. Tarpon have been good around bait pods, most fish have been around the 100 lb mark. Fishing the south Indian River Lagoon has proven to be on fire with small tarpon and snook blasting baits in the mangroves. And more more than will willing to crash a well presented fly. Next month will bring in the start of the fall bait run to the Space Coast.

Summer is here and so are the giant schools of bait fish in the Mosquito Lagoon! Redfish and speckled sea trout are crashing baits on the surface making for some exciting top water action first thing. Redfish and trout are being caught on top water baits, soft plastics, and shrimp as they're up shallow looking for an easy meal. The larger schools of bigger redfish are cruising the outer edges of these same areas all morning long, and fish up to 30 lbs have been caught this month already. Book early and get in on the Red Hot Bite! The fishing along the beach on Space Coast has been excellent this month for tarpon, snook, jacks, bonito, and sharks. These fish have been very aggressive on bait pods and accounting for most of the catches. The bite has been lasting all day for the most part. The tarpon are over 100 lbs, snook around 20 lbs, nice schools of jacks and bonito up to 20 lbs, and lots of 4-6 ft sharks. Trips are filling fast so ger your reservations in now for the trip of a lifetime.

This is starting to sound like a broken record.... The fish are going off right now inside the Mosquito Lagoon! Redfish and Trout are all over the flats crashing finger mullet schools, and can be caught on a variety of baits, including topwater plugs. Redfish up to 25 lbs are being caught, and trout up to 8 lbs are mixed in as well! We are having 20 fish days with a mixed bag of Redfish, Trout, and even Flounder. Tarpon are starting to show along Cocoa Beach. Sight fishing the giant silver kings in crystal clear water can be exciting for any angler. Take advantage of this time of year and book a trip to spend the day casting to rolling and feeding Tarpon along the beach's. Snook are also thick inside the mangroves and flats of the Indian River Lagoon.

We are having some of the Best Spring time Fishing on record right now! The Redfish and Sea Trout are everywhere, and most fish are being caught on soft plastics and topwater plugs! Big schools of Redfish are roaming the flats gorging themselves on the huge schools of mullet and pinfish, and some of the fish are up to 18 lbs! The bite has been an all day event including some fantastic sight fishing as the sun gets high on the horizon. Book your trip early!
