March 2015 – Redfishing in Georgetown, SC & Mosquito Lagoon Trip

March is one of those months that can be feast or famine. The weather really dictates your fishing success this time of year. For that reason, me and some buds typically try and get down south a time or two before our season really gets cranked up. A couple of weeks ago, we stayed at Brian Clancey’s Mosquito Lagoon Fish Camp for a couple of nights. We had 75 degree weather in early March and found some fish without a lot of difficulty. By the time we got back, our weather had improved at home and we’ve had some really great trips in March. By the end of April, fishing should be really good. I hope to spend some time on the water with you.

April Mosquito Lagoon Trip

Slipped down to the Mosquito Lagoon in Oak Hill, FL this weekend with friends Douglas and Craig. We had summer-like weather and calm winds which allowed us Lagoon novices an opportunity to do some exploring. We picked at the redfish and landed some nice flounder. We also caught jack crevalle, bluefish, and ladyfish – not glamour-species by any means, but fun to catch on plugs and spoons. We saw some big redfish schools and gigantic trout. You can get to the Lagoon from Georgetown in 6 1/2 hours if traffic cooperates. I recommend this trip to anyone wanting a low-maintenance Florida fishing trip on a budget. Call me if you need contact info for a good charter captains or a place to stay on the Lagoon.
