CENTRAL FLORIDA’S BEST FISHING REPORT

seatrout

A beautiful spotted seatrout caught in the lagoon this week with Capt. Alex Hughey.

The wind has been relentless lately, but that hasn’t stopped anglers from having some big days on the water. Don’t bet on this week’s frigid temperatures stopping them, either! Find out what our pro and recreational contributors are projecting for the bite ahead in this week’s forecast…

The latest Brevard County area fishing reports covering our fisheries inshore, offshore, and everywhere in between on Florida’s Space Coast.

Inconsistent weather is causing problems!
January 21, 2020

Many of us Brevard county anglers have been having a lot of trouble to merely catch anything in the river/ inshore. The weather has been awful and its really been impacting fishing. Florida weather is […]

Caught My First Sheepshead!
January 21, 2020

Due to the recent weather conditions, I decided to stop by Man Overboard Bait and Tackle and give live shrimp fishing a try. I usually prefer artificial or free lining big live baits, but live shrimp fishing is something I’ve only done a couple of times and the conditions seemed right. I spent a lot of time this week dodging the wind, looking for shorelines that had wind protrotecton and good sun exposure.

Think DEEP!
January 20, 2020

Windy and cold means think deep! This week is expected to get really cold! If I said the fishing has been easy I’d be lying, between the crazy winds, up and down with temps changing the fish don’t really seem to know what to do!

Good Fishing Despite the Wind
January 20, 2020

Fishing this week has been surprisingly good with all of the wind that we’ve had. The cold temperatures seem to be pushing the fish into the deeper channels and waterways around the Indian River.

Satellite Beach & Beyond
January 20, 2020

The canals around Satellite Beach have been holding mangrove snapper, sheepshead and a few trout. In the lagoon down towards Sebastian around the buoy markers quite a few tripletail are being caught. For the beach goers when finding clean water they’re getting pompano, whiting, black drum and sheepshead.

Great Fishing Offshore…. (when fishable)
January 19, 2020

Fishing offshore was actually as good as it gets; at least it was when we could actually get out! Sails, Mahi, king limits, AJs and ARS. As far as places to go, all the same typical spots out of Port Canaveral were performing well — Pelican and 8A were both going off. Unfortunately, only three days were fishable and it looks like it may be zero fishable days in the next week. You just can’t hide from winds coming straight out of the east…

Battling Winds on the Treasure Coast
January 19, 2020

We’ve had so much wind on the Treasure Coast this winter I was ecstatic when the forecast for Tuesday promised light winds. As I was already booked to take the Ancient Mariner and his friend JT out I was nearly giddy with excitement over the prospect of catching lots of fish.

Skipping in the Wind
January 19, 2020

The wind has been relentless, but the fish are chewing in almost all the portions of the lagoon system. Last weekend I found a pretty big school of black drum on a bridge for an hour. The big schooling black drum are here, but it has been inconsistent and a challenge to find them. When I find them, they have eaten every time. This is the opposite of 2017-2018 when I found hundreds almost every time, but I could only get one eat.

Sheepshead Galore
January 18, 2020

Not many fish have been biting lately due to inconsistent weather and fluctuating tides. Still, the Florida sheephead have been going ballistic over all types of lures and bait. What I mainly use to target […]

Vacation on Melbourne Beach
January 17, 2020

I am heading down to Melbourne Beach March 31 – April 7th. My family and I are staying at a house walking distance to the beach. I am bring down a 9’ rod with a 6000D baitrunner 30lb PP. I am from the Northeast and stripers are our target fish. I would rather catch larger species. I am looking for help on what I should bring for tackle and what Is in season.

Melbourne Beach to Playalinda
January 17, 2020

I had no definite fishing plans this morning — other than the fact that I was going to hit the beach somewhere. With a bucket of fresh fleas and a new 12′ Penn Prevail II that I wanted to try, I went out on a solo trip. Undecided on my destination, I got a bit of a late start and left my Melbourne Beach home a bit before 7:00 and started north.

I hope everyone had a great holiday season and a safe New Year. The last few weeks have been great near shore and should continue for a little bit till the weather gets colder and chills the water off.
