Hiding from the Wind
March 24, 2019

Another week of wind and cold here on central Florida’s east coast and I decided to hide at the house during most of the poor conditions.
We did make it out a couple of trips and by hiding from the wind as best as we could my anglers managed a handful of spotted seatrout and lower slot redfish by throwing Z-man Pop Shadz and Diezel Minnowz across winds swept points and across sand spots in backwater areas which still grow grass!

Dragon Point Tripletail
March 21, 2019

Spring Break, images of perfect Florida weather, sandbars, and perhaps an adult beverage or two. Instead, I found myself retying poles, replacing old hooks, and dreaming of getting out of the house. As a teacher, one of the few things that keeps me sane around this time of year is being out on the water, but it seems mother nature had other plans for this week. ..

Tight Lines and Cold Drinks
March 21, 2019

Tight lines and cold drinks, that’s the story of Key West fishing this past week. With spring break in full swing the fishing has been great! The gulf was the big hit this last week for Kings. Lots of guys were out back looking for the Spanish mackerel and Kings, there were fish caught up to 35-40lbs. I fished a couple smaller rock piles for the lane snapper, just keep a live ballyhoo on wire way back on top and you’ll get a couple big kings 🙂 I didn’t see lots of cobia but we did have our shots at a few.

Good Trout & Black Drum Bite
March 18, 2019

We had a really good trout bite this past week on topwater and paddle-tails fishing around the drop offs and in the sandy holes in the river. Most of these fish have responded better in the afternoon rather than the morning. The black drum have been actively feeding when you can find them, especially when the sun warms the water up. The bluefish, pompano and Spanish mackerel are in the shallow waters near the beaches and we have been getting them to bite Goofy style jigs as well as small paddle-tails and subsurface baits like Rapala Subwalks. Make sure you give us a call at 321-636-3728 or go to our website finelinefishingcharters.com for booking information.

Monster Fish Close to Shore
March 18, 2019

We were going to tripletail fish out of Port Canaveral Saturday, but there were two or three boats on almost ever buoy by 7:00AM. There was a huge school of black drum off the beach. They would occasionally hit a shrimp. That meant using a smaller hook that could straighten. They turned off and went down by 8:30AM. This school of fish probably moved south with the cooler weather. If spotted, use medium to heavy spinning gear with large shrimp or crab. Sometimes, they will eat a cobia jig if you rip it through them out of defense.

Another Wild & Windy Week Behind Us
March 18, 2019

Sunday I joined Capt. Tom Carver as a second boat. One of my anglers was only an occasional fisherman who was “new” to the mechanics of spinning reels. I’ll give the gent credit; he learned fast and as a result he caught several trout. His experienced partner had much better results with a bunch of trout and a respectable redfish.

Sebastian Inshore/Nearshore
March 18, 2019

Had a really good week inshore and nearshore. Plenty of trout, jacks and a few snook in the lagoon this week. Most of the fish were caught on Storm 360 Coastal Series jerk baits and paddle tail baits around the spoil islands. We also had a pretty good triple tail bite inshore on live shrimp.

Treasure Coast Report
March 18, 2019

Hello from Treasure Coast Marina! This week was a mixed bag of weather conditions that impacted the fishing. Overall, though, it was decent. The surf report from my friend’s back yard just north of the inlet showed pompano and whiting strong. A few stray blue fish have been in that group as well.

Good Fishing with Late Season Front
March 18, 2019

Fishing has been good lately and getting better with the late season cold front. Black drum, redfish and trout have been eating well on live free lined shrimp. After the cold front and toward the start of April look for tarpon to be showing up as well as cobia and tripletail.

Mid-March Mosquito Lagoon / Coastal Fishing Report
March 18, 2019

On the Mosquito and the Indian River Lagoons, water levels are in a moderate range and the water clarity is still dirty in most locations. Add these factors to the winds of March, and you have challenging fishing conditions. Although the conditions have been challenging, we have still managed to catch some very respectable redfish and black drum, you just have to work harder to locate and catch them. In addition, the silver mullet have returned to the flats in good numbers, so the top water plug action for sea trout is picking up in the skinny water.

Fishing Wind Protected Canals for Speckled Trout
March 14, 2019

Seeking refuge from the windy river, we found a mangrove-protected deep water canal that leads into a popular marina nearby. Today we started fishing around 4:30pm. The bite was hot early and mellowed out towards dusk. I believe between with the windy conditions during the day, and cooler temps during the evening, fish have moved back to deeper water. Also, the feeding habits have been later in the morning and earlier in the evening, during warmer water temps.

American Shad Fishing

It’s a cold post-frontal January morning in east Central Florida. While launching my skiff in predawn darkness I can barely see the end my trailer as a heavy fog bank has settled in. Luckily, I know this part of the Saint Johns River like the back of my hand, so finding my intended fishing spot in zero visibility goes according to plan…
