Good Bite, Great Baits, Awesome Surf Fishing
April 25, 2019


Spacefish hit up satellite beach for some Wednesday afternoon surf fishing. Armed with a full arsenal of Native Salt Baits, our goal was to bring home dinner, and baby, you better believe we made magic happen!

It’s Tarpon Time
April 25, 2019

With the warmer weather lately the tarpon bite has picked up! Some schools are showing up off the beaches and we are starting to get a good influence in the lagoon as well. Tarpon are one species that do not handle cold water well, although we do have some resident tarpon which hangout in residential canals and small ponds the majority of our tarpon fishing is best during the late spring and summer months and into the fall.

South Melbourne Beach Surf Fishing
April 23, 2019

Went out at first light to do some surf fishing in South Melbourne Beach. The bite started slow, but picked up a good bit with the sun’s ascent. There’s still pompano out there, and I’ve heard positive reports indicating the same from all over our coast. With these conditions, I expect the fish to be biting all day through the beginning of this week. Give it a go and try putting a Native Salt Baits product on your hook — the results may surprise you!

Live Bait Alternatives for Good Fishing
April 23, 2019

We’ve seen a good run up to the coming week in spite of that extremely bright full moon. The fish have been feeding all night, leaving them sleepy in the morning, but if you wait until the afternoon, the bite has been good from about 3-4pm on. Windy and stormy weather last week made it difficult for the bait boats to get out so it has been challenging to provide live baits at the shop.

Golden Eggs in the Surf
April 22, 2019

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! If you hit the beach this past weekend in search of some golden eggs, aka Pompano, then maybe you got rewarded with a couple, or even a limit! Some anglers headed further south and caught a mix of whiting, croakers, Pompano and even a trophy Permit!

Ponce/New Smyrna
April 22, 2019

With the full moon this past week we’ve had extremely high and low tides but with the cooler weather and the mullet run starting, it has made the early morning topwater bite really great! Later in the morning as the sun gets up, sight casting on the flats has been really good too. Bull reds as well as upper slot fish remain in the inlet. Tarpon should be showing up in greater numbers over the next week or two.

More Sand Fleas
April 22, 2019

In the surf around Satellite Beach, there have been good catches of whiting, margates, sheepshead and a few pompano mixed in. As usual, you can’t go wrong with sand fleas. In the canals, the trout bite remains strong. We are seeing lots of mangrove snapper around Mathers Bridge and folks are also catching some nice sheepshead in the greater lagoon area. Believe it or not, but sand fleas aren’t just baits for the beach — with fiddler crabs being hard to come by, many anglers have been finding success with sheepshead by using sand fleas instead.

4/20/19 – Jupiter

Water conditions at PC were a bit rough Saturday, luckily, we had an opportunity to fish with some friends in Jupiter. Water/winds were pretty sloppy, but the ride out was only +/-5 miles. We started […]

Offshore Update!
April 21, 2019

Despite rough conditions, we had a pretty great week offshore out of Port Canaveral. Beautifully sized kingfish were abundant on the reef and the ridge. They are eagerly eating frozen minnows and chartreuse dusters have helped add too the allure. Bottom fishing has been fun TONS of red snapper to play with, so the open season this summer just can’t come soon enough!

Prime Time for Pompano Down South
April 21, 2019

The Pink Full Moon, also named the Harvest Moon, has always marked the signature month for pompano! The Algonquin tribes named moons after natural activities that occurred during its appearance. The pink connotation related to the showering colors of spring flowers, while the Harvest Moon related to the annual shad spawning in Michigan and other northeastern streams.

Queue the Broken Record
April 20, 2019

I know I sound like a broken record skipping on the sentence “it’s still windy, but the fish don’t care” and it’s true… the fish don’t care! Two of the three trips I took this week were windy and we managed to have good fishing anyway.
