Floating islands with beautiful flowering plants in certain ponds in The Villages are more functional than you think.

I have noticed these floating mats of plants on several small ponds on the golf courses but, I thought they were there just for their beauty until I was recently fishing with Randy DeSanto and he showed me pictures he took when they were placing a mat in Mira Mesa pond.

April 16-- Turtle Mound Saltwater Trip Fishing Report

Fishing report by  Doug Dombek and Jim Lovegrove.

Turtle Mound is part of the Mosquito Lagoon system.  A-1A South in New Smyrna Beach  DEAD-ENDS in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.  Turtle Mound is about 1 mile inside the gate ; also a ramp there and more further down.  There is a great sandbar there that usually holds fish; good wading.  

There is an entry fee, usually waived if driver has a Golden Age Pass.  This trip sometimes is accused of being an excuse to have lunch in New S. at the Boston’s Fish House( which is really good.)...
