Mosquito Lagoon Boating Project Focus Group


October 9th at UCF for recreational power boaters

October 16th in Titusville for recreational power boaters

October 17th in Titusville for kayakers


The purpose of this project is to develop an outreach campaign to increase environmentally-responsible recreational boating in Mosquito Lagoon and help protect crucial marine species and their habitats. To help direct the campaign, the researchers are conducting focus group interviews with boaters to better understand their experiences and views. We are actively looking for participants for a focus group based on recreational boating in the Mosquito Lagoon.

Free pizza will be provided and each participant will receive a $20 Bass Pro Shops gift card.

If interested or if you know of any adult registered recreational boaters who visit Mosquito Lagoon regularly (at least four times in the past year) who would be willing to help this project by participating in one of the confidential ninety-minute focus groups, please have them volunteer by contacting the project’s lead researcher, Denise DeLorme, at denise.delorme@ucf.edu or research assistant, Kamra Bowerman at K.Bowerman@knights.ucf.edu for further information.

KIKO Reel Keel Roundup

A nice variety to test on the flats.
KIKO Fishing's new Reel Keel line is definitely an interesting offering and addition to your hard lure lineup. These floating crank bait plugs are touted as "the only lure with the keel" and this single feature makes them do some really cool things. I found that a slow or fast crank produced a very realistic side to side wiggle that imitated live bait well. These are very beefy, but buoyant lures, and need a consistant crank to keep them submerged. I also found that a little jerk in the reeling motion produced a quick deep dive with a left or right hook which added to the realism from time to time.

These lures were originally designed for northern species, Pike, Musky, Walleye, Rainbow Trout... but they seem like they should do equally well on Florida lakes or flats, where large bass, redfish or spotted trout are the likely suspects for a plug like this. Given the size of these lures (4 inches long) and with a single trailing treble hook, you really do want to target larger fish. The sub foot long trout I presented it to recently wanted nothing to do with it, but they were attacking smaller live mullet. To get a true test I've sent out some to a Georgia angler to give it some freshwater lake action in the northern hills while I seek out redfish and gator trout in the lagoon system. Given the wide array of color patterns to choose from (including the brightly colored "fruit" flavors) you're going to have an option for any water conditions.

I'll post more thoughts as we test these and some photos of any "keepers" these produce. Also, stay tuned for contests where you could win some of KIKO's flagship lures for your very own.


A few are being tested in the lakes of North Georgia
