Orlando Fishing

LA / Late Feb IRL

Capt. Scott and I spent 3 weeks in Louisiana guiding in late Jan-Feb. Other then enduring very cold temps, the fishing was great. During the colder temps, the smaller fish will get into schools and the larger redfish and black drum will move into deeper water. The good thing is if you found fish they still wanted to eat, even when water temps were hovering around 44 degrees. Once the weather became warmer, the bigger fish came out to play. The bigger redfish were found floating and tailing all over the place. Some days having over 30 shots at redfish over 20#.

Back at home in the Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River, the water remains low, causing most of the redfish to stay in schools. With air temps in the 80’s and the water levels beginning to rise , it won’t be long untill they break out of schools into small groups and singles in the shallow flats. Seatrout can be found lying motionless in sand holes waiting to pounce on something. The Black drum typically are always found in schools. Some days they eat better than others. Depending how bad they have been pounded on in the more popular areas of the Lagoons.
