Beach Fishing A Little Behind
May 26, 2020

Early week we were able to fish the beach with a lot of action from big Jack Crevalle as well as big Spanish macs and Sharks. There were also some tarpon in the mix but not a lot. The beach fishing seems to be a little behind this year — like most everything else. There is a lack of bait and not as much action as there should be to start the summer.

First Fluke (Summer Flounder) Trip Of The Year
May 26, 2020

My son Jason and I made our first party boat trip (better late than never) yesterday. We were expecting much since the weather & conditions were not the best. Jason was able to put 2 keepers in the box out of the 5 he caught. I had no keepers out of the 4 I caught. Only one other keeper was caught among the other 23 fares.

Space Coast Surf Fishing Report
May 25, 2020

Surf fishing during the month of May has offered some much needed family fun experiences with the opening of beach accesses across Florida. Getting to the beach has been one of the top things to do outside on the Space Coast. Incredible weather and social distancing measures are a few factors that make beach fishing Central East Coast of Florida a top choice for individuals and family looking for some outside recreation.

Lakes Needing A Rain Refill
May 25, 2020

Rain… We need rain to start filling up our lakes. As the summer moves into where we start every afternoon to get the rains the waters should fill our lakes. This will make a great time to target spawning bluegill and bass, which are protecting their fry, even better.

Reliably Targeting Speckled Trout
May 25, 2020

Speckled trout continue to be our most reliable targets in the lagoons. Captain Justin and I have been catching them in a variety of ways on our charters this week. Live fingerling mullet free-lined near mangroves and spoil islands are accounting for the largest trout on most of our trips.

Canaveral Offshore
May 25, 2020

Grouper and amberjack are firing out of the Port and are chewing hard on live croakers, whiting, and big pins. Deep drops also turned on this week, producing some nice catches of golden tilefish and snowy grouper. If you like pressing a button, come on out! LOL. Meanwhile, kings have been a day-to-day thing on the reeds, and sharks are continuing to feast nearshore.

Inshore, Beach, and Offshore
May 25, 2020

In the lagoon, north of Pineda, anglers are catching a lot of redfish and tarpon. The canals around Satellite are holding nice sheepshead, mangrove snapper and black drum, as well. The beach anglers when fishing are catching some nice snook, margate, whiting and still a few pompano. We’ve even seen a permit or two mixed in a little further south around Melbourne Beach.

Summer Bite Seems to be Coming!
May 24, 2020

This week, the canals around Satellite were hopping with big snook and juvenile tarpon eager for live bait. I caught two tarpon and had a lower slot snook come out of nowhere and eat my mullet while an overslot snook was licking its lips for my bait. Early in the morning, before sunrise, I attempted fishing at a marina. With many snook hitting, one after another, I only got one mid-twenties to the boat. Another one which got off on structure felt a bit bigger. Later in the day I moved on to the flats and did good there too. My dad got a solid trout and another mid-twenty inch snook ate my white bait and almost got me stuck in the mangroves.

Fishing is on Fire
May 23, 2020

Hit the island houses early this morning around 4:30am. Lined up on the east side of the island and worked the dock with a top dog. Almost every cast got exploded on. Set a PB on trout with a solid 27.5ish. Hit a slam within an hour. Bait was getting crashed everywhere. Landed several slot to over slot snook, a few jacks, trout, and some nice keeper size reds. Top water, gold DOA shrimp with the rattle and tipped with shrimp fish bites landed the reds, snook on top, doa shrimp, and DOA white paddle tails.

Spring Bluefish & Fluke (Summer Flounder)
May 19, 2020

I fished several days in the past week. My first few trips were in search of springtime bluefish in the Manasquan River. The first day I caught 3 (1 on a bone SP Minnow and 2 on a Hopkins shorty) in addition I caught a small striped bass that fell for a ghost white SP Minnow. Returned the next day with my son, once again I caught 3 bluefish and he caught 2-al on a bone SP Minnow. All the blues were in the #2-3 class-which is unfortunate is not close to the size of the bluefish the last 3 springs during the first part of May when they were in the #10-15 class. Switched gears the next two days and did some summer flounder (fluke) fishing in Shark River. Since the season for them doesn’t open until 5?22-it as all catch & release. Caught several each day by bouncing a bucktail with a teaser hook above-both tipped with GULP.

Canals, Lagoon, & Surf
May 18, 2020

In the canals and river around Satellite and Indian Harbour Beach, anglers are doing well fishing for trout, redfish, sheepshead and mangrove snapper. When conditions have allowed on the beach, the surf fishermen are getting bluefish and big numbers of whiting; the snook have also started to show up for their annual summer spawn. Meanwhile, pompano have slowed a little bit, but the residential fish are out there, and anglers are still putting them in the cooler.

Pretty Good Fishing
May 18, 2020

Fishing has continued to be pretty good inshore and in the surf. We are starting to get pigfish as well as croakers as bait, which is producing really well for snook, redfish and trout. Black drum and mangrove snapper have been biting on jig-heads tipped with shrimp. With the mullet run in full swing, tarpon are starting to show up in the river and the beaches, too.
