This Post is getting so much attention--over 7000 hits--i felt that some of the viewers should get more out of it. So i am going to start a "Tips for Fishing Little lagoon" starting today.
# 1. Night Fishing under the Lights.
Its quiet--you can hear the Lions Roar at the Zoo at daylight--hear the garbage truck picking up trash--see fish feeding under the lights--watch the sun come up--see the Lightning in a far off thunderstorm. I like to pull up to a light-- up wind, well back from the light--ease my anchor over and throw to the light. I like to use a Gulp and "Hop" it back to the boat--works most of the time. Questions.---More to come--stay tuned----BT66

I have decided for the sake of the large female Trout I wont fish for them. I can not take a chance of hurting them if I try to weigh or measure them. There for I will just fish for the little male trout under the lights in the early morning. How many large female trout die per year at the little Lagoon becasuse we hold them in our bare hands. Maybe we could wear surgiacal gloves or hold them in a wet towel. Just not worth the rish I guess. Thanks for your advice. I guess I will have to telll the guide the deal is off for the secrets to his deep holes and how to catch these big female trout.

Bass Tracker look forward to your tips. Are you going to tell them how to Fluke?

Me and Little Lagoon---By BT66
The first time i fished LL was in early 1971. At that time there were few homes and fewer docks and -to my knowledge-no dock lights. The only outlet to LL was a natural outlet at the West End that only flowed at High Tide or when it had some help from locals. Many things have changed during the past +40 years--Some good/some bad. But change has come to Little Lagoon--and some of it in the form of more people fishing. People who want to fish are going to fish. If a person wants to Educate some of them on ways to help the fish population survive the inceresed pressure-thats good. If someone else wants to help them by giving tips on fishing--thats good. Most people who fish are good people who are trying to relax--have a little fun and want to enjoy life.----------BT66

#2--Tips for Fishing Little Lagoon---
The West End----
In all of my years of fishing LL the larger fish have almost always come from the the West End. More bait fish and a little deeper water seem to me to be the reason. Now is a good time to start using Stick Bait type lures and Top Water. but to catch fewer but larger fish use live mullet or small bait fish or the biggest Live Shrimp you can find. I like to fish early morning--suits my life style--but fish can be caught at all times of the day. Go fishing-- Catch Fish--have fun--take some home to eat but put back the larger fish for our children.-- Questions-----BT66
-----------PS--Maybe someone else could give us some tips on the proper way to release big Fish.
Tip # 3---Fishing the Cut---Coming soon---stay tuned--------

BT, I'd love to fish with you sometime soon on the West End of the lagoon. Dying to try out my mirrolures and topwaters down there and possibly some live bait.

Okay, so I really should probably refrain from posting this. But this just seems ridiculous. Did I miss something here?

Sometimes I wish people wouldn't hide behind some online forum name and belittle others; it's really unbelievable.

I guess I'm a bit biased towards BT, KB, and SAS but what have they done wrong here? They all seem like great guys with good intentions.

And in all seriousness, I'm going to admit my ignorance here. I'm no biologist by any means, but from what I understand, using some kind of lip gripper and wetting your hands before touching a sow is a pretty safe way of handling the fish.

What is wrong with getting a group of guys and boats together to fish?

... hehe okay.

I'm a terrible fisherman, honestly. lol

Seriously, though, I don't mean to cause drama. What's the best way to handle them? Is the idea of just wetting your hands before touching them, and then using a lip gripper okay?

Daggermouth, you speak as if you're a successful and knowledgeable fisherman. Where's your reports or tips rather than your B.S. comments?!? I have and I always will share any tips or teach anyone what I can, that's just the way I am. I guess you learned it all on your own right?!? I'd learn how to respect someone and not hide behind a screen making a$$ clown comments. Try enjoying life, it's too short to be so unhappy!

All fish have a "slime" on them that helps the fish fend off parasites and it functions as other various things. Yes wetting your hands really helps them, a boca grip is even better. Don't pay attention to the drama queen up above, no one knows where he came from. He joined a fishing forum to bash people and talk about how much he knows. You're more than welcome to fish with me and Kbob on my boat over spring break. Hit me up on facebook or on here later next week and we'll work something out.
