Orlando Fishing

April- May


The water in Mosquito Lagoon remains low, so Redfish still remain in schools on the edges of the flats. I have been finding as of recently more singles starting to creep up onto the shallower flats. Due mainly to the fact the water is slowly coming up, and I mean slowly. I’ve also been finding large Seatrout cruising and laying up on the sandy/grassy mixed flats. Very spooky though. The baitfish have definitely shown up in good numbers and the redfish and seatrout have been shadowing them. Early morning floating flies and topwater plugs fished around the baitfish have been creating bites from seatrout, ladyfish and an occasional redfish. As the sun gets up, we have been able to sightfish. Baitfish and shrimp patterns have worked well with the fly rod and soft plastics, jigs and bait have been the ticket for light tackle.


The cobia action out of Port Canaveral has remained steady. Not quite like it was in March, but they can be still found if you put your time in. Some days you find them on rays, some days just free swimming. Their not quite as aggressive as when they first showed up, but they still will eat. Jacks have shown up and have been seeing some Tarpon. As summer gets closer, the Tarpon will become more abundant.

Excuse the sideways pictures. You get the idea.
