Flats Heating Up!

The flats are heating up! There’s no doubt about it, the flats are definitely getting hot! With this being said, Mosquito Lagoon has been the place to be.

Trout Bite Slows After New Moon

The inshore trout bite has slowed a little with the new moon. However, you can still find groups of trout holding under schools of mullet and other bait fish.

Topwater with RWood Outdoors

Per usual, topwater action is great in the low light periods of evening and morning. Check out this quick video where I took advantage and landed a good-sized snook on a topwater plug just north of Sebastian Inlet.

Targeting Kingfish and Mangrove Snapper

King mackerel and mangrove snapper are available for anglers fishing the 50 to 90 foot reefs and wrecks. Frozen bait will work on both species if live baits are not available.

Sebastian Nearshore/Offshore
July 16, 2018

Sebastian Nearshore/Offshore

It was a good week offshore as we got into plenty of Kingfish, Red Snapper, Grouper, Dolphin, Sea Bass and Triggerfish. Later in the week the water got cold and the bite slowed a bunch.

Live Bait Hard to Come by
July 16, 2018

Live Bait Hard to Come by

Live bait is almost obsolete. There have been none around. We have to buy minnows every single day. Both 8A and Pelican Reefs are the two main hotspots.

Black Drum Remain Hot
July 16, 2018

Black Drum Remain Hot

The black drum bite is still the talk of the town. The best places to target are any structure and the bridges. Use shrimp or cut crabs for the best results.
