Daytona Beach Sport Fishing Report for November 7, 2009
Some high winds have descended upon central Florida and are forecast to remain with us for much of the
coming week. The wind has made sight fishing difficult but we have managed to catch some nice redfish and
seatrout despite the challenging conditions. Water levels are still quite high but the temperature has dropped
significantly with yesterday morning's water at 66 degrees.
Last week, prior to the arrival of the cooler temperatures, I made a trip to Mosquito Lagoon with my friend Mike.
We hoped we would be able to find a few tarpon lingering around. We only saw a couple and did not get any
bites. The redfish and large seatrout, however, were much more cooperative. We caught several of each on a
DOA shrimp and used the Baitbuster for some redfish double hookups.
This Monday, I made a solo trip to Mosquito Lagoon. It was the first day of the cloudy and blustery weather. I
used 5.5 inch DOA Cal lures in Stark Naked and Silver Mullet colors to catch several trout over 24 inches as
well as three redfish from 30-38 inches. All were caught around schools of small mullet holding around patches
of shallow grass and sand.
Tuesday, I fished with Larry and his wife Debbie. The wind was blowing when we started but they both caught
several trout to 25 inches using the CAL tails.
We found a few schools of redfish as well as scattered singles during the day. The wind and clouds made it
tough to see and cast to the fish. A handful of trout were caught and released but no redfish made it to the boat.
The forecast for Friday was for winds up to 20 mph. Despite the poor conditions, Canadian residents Mark and
Marianne wanted to give it a try anyway. We spent the day along some lee shorelines attempting to avoid the
choppy open waters. Both caught some nice redfish including a 48 inch brute.
When the wind dies down, the cooler water should produce some good fishing for tailing redfish. Trophy trout
have made their way onto the flats and can be found in the shallow sand holes throughout the day. We have
been seeing some black drum each day as well. The DOA shrimp is one of the few lures that is effective on all
