Haven't had much time to do any fishing of any kind lately but had a couple hours to kill this morning.. Been hell bent on trying to catch a 10lb bass for the last couple months and I realized I have been neglecting my little red friends.. Hit the Mosquito Lagoon bright and early this morning.. Paddled into my target area and was greeted by redfish tailing all over the place in less than a foot of water.. Caught 14 in all, 6 were caught after my phone died.. No heroes but a bent rod throwing at tailers all morning kept a grin on my face..

I really love catching redfish.   You had an awesome day, wish I was there.   I keep meaning to get up to Mosquito Lagoon but haven't made it yet.  These pics make me more determined than ever.

What kind of rig was that?   At first I thought it was a jig with a trailer, but in some of the other pics it looked more like a t-rig.

Anyway,,,,you done did reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel good.

Nice Reds!

I know we have some around here in the Tidewater
area of VA, but I'm 100% freshwater. Well, okay, 98%
LOL.

I would love to fish for Reds.

It's on a 3/0 keel weighted owner swimbait hook.. Pretty much standard tackle in the goon.. allows a perfectly weedless presentation so you can snake it through the grass efficiently.. If you end up coming up here and want someone to fish with don't hesitate to hit me up if you need a hand on locating the fish up there.. Lots of reds up there but it is truly a 90% of the fish are in 10% of the water type situation and can be tricky at times..

You guys literally have the biggest reds in the world in Virginia.. I know a guy who yak fishes Chesapeke bay and gets absolute monsters.. Between the chesapeke and the outer banks I promise you there are probably several dozen world record sized reds floating around out there

that's a very generous offer and I'm sure I'll take you up on it.  I'm down in Port St. Lucie so it's a couple or more hours to get up to the lagoon.  I would like to stay at a fish camp rather than a motel.  Any good ones near you?

JB's fish camp is great... close proximity to the goon..

This is the best way to hold them.. you can't hang them like a bass because it seperates the vertabrae  and can sometimes damage the isthmus of the fish rendering it unable to feed
