Fishing Near Orlando Fl in the spring time usually consists of flats fishing inshore, offshore wrecks and freshwater lakes. The main issue with offshore in the months of March and April are the high seas and strong winds. Bass fishing on the many lakes around Orlando FL can be a hit or miss as long as the spawn is going strong. My favorite fishing in orlando during spring by far is the flats fishing on the Mosquito Lagoon. The Mosquito Lagoon over the past several months has been simply outstanding. Redfish are on the prowl across just about every flat in the central to south areas. Black drum have pretty much taken over both the lagoon and the Indian River. Schools consisting of no less then 75 to 100 fish are common. Sea Trout are feeding like theres no tomorrow on the deeper flats and edges of sand bars. This past week we had had no trouble getting all of these popular species to eat. The main source of bait has been live shrimp. I'm rigging them with a 1/8 oz. flutter hook to help add weight for casting into the wind. We are both site casting and blind casting when needed but as of lately site casting has been the most common as the schools are easy to see. As long as you get the bait out in front of the school... it's FISH ON! Getting on the water early has been very important as the fish seem to be eating best just minutes after first light. Most likely it's because the shrimp are running at nite and the fish are attempting to feed on them before they bed down for the day. So be sure to get on the water early. March is booking up fast and I feel like in the next few weeks getting a spot may be tough so be sure to lock in that date as soon as possible.
