Fishing Report for Mosquito Lagoon.

Well, they say summer begins with Memorial Day, and ends with Labor Day, and of course that means that kids get a break from school. There are no better times to spend with a youngster than sports such as fishing. Of course, if you are an adult, you can have fun all the time!
Here are a list of my latest reports, and the newest one is always at the top of the list. Of course, an historical look back may help predict future fishing conditions, too.

My general statement about fishing reports from guides in general.

Most guides who do regular fishing reports especially if they are relatively new to the business do it primarily because it helps with the position on a search engine that you as a client might use. Yes that is right the guy who puts the most current information keeps his website(s) higher in the search that you as a client might request. There is no mechanism in the system to rate that information as accurate or current.

Just a fishing report that is accurate or a total fictional report boosts the web page to a higher position in the search results such as Google and most others. Pictures and other information could be totally outdated or certainly not current within the last few days which is the ONLY information that might be useful to you as a potential client to help you wade through the cyber space mess.

At least in the old days the guy who had a real large ad in the yellow pages was probably reasonably good as the cost of the ads were astronomical and he must be on the water a lot to keep and afford that ad. A real busy guide fresh or salt probably is competent and will do a good job for you. But the search engines do not list requested search items by that criteria at all. So when you get the results of a search that you requested be diligent to look at 2 pages of results so you will at least get some variety.

ONE LAST thing on searches NEVER, NEVER click on an featured ad that are listed first as they are a pay by hit, paid for listing by the business and have no bearing on years in business, quality or anything else and usually tells me that the business is starving and needs to pay to get new clients as they are not getting referrals or repeat customers. I wonder why and so should you...

In my case I do not have time to write a fishing report each day probably not even each month. I do have a life elsewhere and I am really doing well because of repeats and referrals. I have thousands and thousands of pictures both pictures and in digital form of Redfish with clients, friends and personal of yours truly that I will one day look back on with a smile and realize all that I have been lucky enough to catch in this great job. I definitely do not take as many pictures anymore as most clients bring there own cameras with the digital age and almost certainly have a cell phone that will take one. I take personal photos of the best fish to add to my collection. Sometimes clients send me copies but the best fish I still pull out my digital to take one for the files and history. Fishing as much as I do I barely have time to re-rig daily keep up with boat maintenance etc.

The internet in general is about 4% of my yearly business regardless of fishing reports or pictures. I manage to stay up in the top ten almost always because I have had a killer website for much longer than most and a killer slide show with music etc., which still no one has. Also I have guaranteed Redfish or NO-Pay for over 16 years in this business. That is right no if, ands or buts just-- Guaranteed Redfish or No-Pay-- Simple truth........
