Cuda snatch
April 16, 2021

Fishing for Spanish mackerels off jetty park pier last Friday. Had a nice size one on and just as I was about to flip it up onto the pier a 4 ft barracuda snatched it! […]

Lower Water Levels Changed the Game
April 14, 2021

Low water levels have definitely changed the game this week on the Space Coast. Despite some wild rainstorms over the weekend the water levels still seem to be quite low. With the low water, the clarity remains quite well! Most of the region is experiencing very clean water, although I don’t expect it to last, it’s a very good sight. With the water levels being lower than usual most of the fish seem to really be bunched up along any mangrove shoreline with small depressions and larger sandbars. You may cover miles of shoreline only to find a 100 yard stretch with schools of fish ranging from redfish, trout, snook, and even a few tarpon showing up with the warmer conditions.

Big Catches Hitting the Beach!
April 12, 2021

Surf fishing’s firing on all cylinders this past week with big catches hitting the beach! As predicted, the clean water accompanied with ideal water temps brought enormous bounty for surf fishing anglers on the Space Coast. Astonishing numbers of whiting, keeper pompano, and sharks headlined the week’s catches. Bluefish and mackerel made a resurgence from the prior week and that was a welcome sight for light tackle beach casting anglers.

Good Fishing Inshore & Near
April 12, 2021

It’s been another great week of spring time fishing here at Fineline Fishing Charters. Captain Justin Ross has been putting his clients on small tarpon, ladyfish, and trout on most of his inshore outings. He’s been using a variety of things to get these fish to strike because it seems like they want something different every day. Live shrimp, Saltwater Assassin 3″ shad tails, and small silver spoons seem to be working best for the miniature silver kings and ladyfish, while Assassin 4″ paddle tails are the best producer for the trout. Rig these on a 1/16th to 1/8th ounce screw lock jig head.

Checking in from Fort Pierce
April 12, 2021

First off, I’d like to apologize for my lack of regular reports. I promise I’ll get back on a normal weekly schedule very soon. Aside from this past week the blustery winds have made fishing “iffy” at best and downright dangerous at times!

Rain Should Improve Bite
April 12, 2021

I’m excited to see how this rain helps the bite in the lagoon. Should make the water a little dirtier and make it tougher for the fish to see the boat and anglers. The rain should also get the bait moving out of the creeks and impoundments into the lagoon and help quite a bit!

Big Sharks on the Beach
April 12, 2021

This week we have been once again met with great conditions and even better weather. At the start of the week I did some heavy surf fishing targeting pompano. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get any keepers but the whiting bite has been on fire. With fresh dead shrimp being the hot bait early.

Bass Bite Remains Excellent
April 12, 2021

This week, Stick Marsh, Kenansville and Headwaters were all productive using Chug Bugs in Black color as well as the Bass Assassin Fat Job rigged wacky style in the Junebug and Junebug Blue tail. You can pickup these baits at Fellsmere Outdoor Adventures along with lake maps of each body of water. I was using a Heavy action Halo XD III Pro rod with 50lb braid.

Amazing Week Offshore
April 12, 2021

Amazing week fishing offshore. Finally, we could get out there and do what we do. Nearshore shark fishing has been absolutely insane. Hammerheads, Blacktips, tigers, bulls and Sandbars. All close to shore and theres so many they have been eating each other. We even saw a great white! Kings have been firing with limits daily and some pushing 30lbs. Live bait, particularly bunker, is the best bet. The Maui Maui have been chewing on the minnows, as well. Sails and blackfin Tuna are around in the mix, too. You dont need to do anything other than troll the reefs. Everything is there eating the same baits. Good luck and go kill a few!

Shrimp Running
April 12, 2021

In the canals around Satellite Beach, anglers are catching small snook, small tarpon, sheepshead, mangrove snapper and a few redfish. In the river around the bridges they are catching Spanish mackerel, and an occasional pompano along with mangrove snapper and sheepshead. For the beach fisherman, big whiting, sheepshead and some pompano are being caught. For the offshore bite, dolphin are showing up. The bottom fishermen are catching nice mangroves and a few triggerfish. Also, the shrimp are running good in the river!

Nearshore Reefs Very Productive
April 12, 2021

Fishing this past week has been very good on our nearshore reefs along the beach. We have been catching red snapper, sheepshead as well as cobia. For the bottom fishing, a jig tipped with squid, fish bites or shrimp has worked very well. Cobia have been readily eating live pinfish. In the next couple weeks the tarpon should start to arrive — now is a great time to book your trip to get that bucket list fish!
