Port Canaveral Springtime Cobia Fishing

Early Spring and March are Sight Fishing Fun!

Tuesday January 23, 2018

It's warming up on Florida's east coast and the annual run of cobia typically happens in March as the Mercury rises. Sit back and relax aboard the Lagooner as you idle along in search for these migratory fish moving northward towards their spawning grounds.

Fishing Reports

Mid Winter 2018 fishing has been a hit-or-miss proposition for sightfishing in the Mosquito Lagoon depending on conditions. January's winter winds have turned days of sight fishing into a day of blindcasting or looking for sheltered shorelines in the Pole and Troll zone or leeward shorelines. However, if weather conditions permit the sightfishing is fabulous and the redfish are on the flats in full force.

And guess what? There's not as many anglers in this sightfishing mecca known for plentiful redfish and hot headed anglers looking feveroushly for a secluded flat with feeding and tailing redfish during this time of year! Fishing leading up to and during January 2018 has been excellent for sightfishing in Mosquito Lagoon when the winds are cooperative and challenging when they are not. Captain Richard and a handful of other guides can help you catch your fish in almost any conditions if you're willing to try something other than sightfishing when the winds and weather do not cooperate.

Give Captain Gina a call today if you want to set up a January fishing trip in the Mosquito Lagoon in East Central, Florida with a Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Guide.

PS: The Fly Fishing has been superb for a couple of our anglers when the winds have cooperated lately.
