    Mosquito Lagoon

    My son took me to Mosquito Lagoon yesterday to chase tailing redfish with the fly rods. Drizzled rain the entire time
    but I had a blast. Casting to tailing fish in very shallow water was so much fun in the shadow of the Space X Falcon 9 being readied for Monday's launch. It's certainly a different world than Alligator Point. Then this blew up and chased us off the water, we got the skiff loaded on the trailer just as it hit, it made for a exciting race back to the ramp. The photo was take by a friend of my son's who on there as well.

    That is a nasty looking storm. Mosquito Lagoon is an amazing place. Did you get any redfish to eat the fly?

    A few, I'm a novice with the fly rod, but it's fun. I found it to be like hunting quail or pheasant, only casting to fish you see tailing or moving in the shallows rather than blind casting hoping there is a fish around. The lagoon is full of reds and trout.

    Glad y'all found some. More gator trout in the lagoon than other places.

    Pretty cool photo. Was it photoshopped or is that raw?

    Friends cell phone that he snapped just before he headed to the ramp. The storm boiled up very fast and we had to hustle to beat it. They appeared to be transporting the rocket from the assembly building to the launch pad but I don't know if it made it there. It seemed to me the rocket was very vulnerable.
