CENTRAL FLORIDA’S BEST FISHING REPORT

Space Coast Fishing Report: 10.16.2018 - 10.22.2018

“YOU get a redfish, and YOU get a redfish… EVERYBODY gets a redfish!”

EVERYBODY GETS A REDFISH

It seems just about everybody has been catching big, bruiser redfish. If you haven’t caught one or got your fill of the fun yet, you’ve got time because they’re still active in big numbers. Just remember, they are spawning and are critical to the sustainability of the fishery, so handle these beautiful fish with the utmost care. With the mullet run finally getting into high gear, it’s a great time to chase some reds along with the other species feasting on this mobile buffet line. Between the wind and seaweed, conditions on the beach are less than ideal for surf fishing, so at the time being, the inlets and lagoons present the best inshore opportunities to capitalize.

LATEST FISHING REPORTS

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

Red Tide Update
October 17, 2018

The presence of karenia brevis cells (red tide) have not yet been found north of Sebastian Inlet in the daily water samples tested by FWC. However, Brevard residents across the county are observing conditions on the beach that are synonymous with outbreaks of the toxic algae, e.g., dead fish, itchy throats, etc. We’ll be providing updates as the situation continues to develop and we welcome you to share any of your own personal observations.

Mullet Run Finally Getting Going!
October 15, 2018

The Mullet Run is finally getting going with a lot of bait in the lagoon and the beaches getting some action as well. Inshore bite has been good with a lot of trout as well as slot redfish and some snook.

Sebastian River Area
October 15, 2018

Water in the Sebastian River is still dirty. There’s a lot of catfish, glass minnows, pinfish and some croakers, ranging from around 8″ – 12,” but no sign of mullet around. We’re still waiting on cool air and water to push the trout and pompano to the Wabasso Causeway. And to all the people affected by Hurricane Micheal — we all have your backs, hang in there, it will get better!

Very Good Week Offshore
October 15, 2018

This week has been a very good week, the winds were down and the ocean was fairly clean. Bunker have been in the port almost every day and pretty easy to get for a change. We have had no problem getting kings on 8A and pelican.

SHARK BAIT HOO HA HA!
October 15, 2018

Fishing can be tough. Sometimes you can wait around all day without even getting a bite. Whose got time for that? Certainly not Ryan Wood. In his latest video, Ryan goes shark fishing at the beach and shares his secret trick to eliciting a quick strike.

Increased Trout Activity
October 15, 2018

Inshore we have noticed an increase in the trout activity around the docks on both sides of the Indian River. Using top water baits in the morning and swapping over to twitch baits as well as subsurface lures as the sun starts to come up, seems to be the best way to get a positive response from these fish.

Waiting for the Wind to Back Down
October 15, 2018

We only made it out a couple of times this week because I decided to wait for the winds back off a bit. I fished the central lagoon region with top-water Tony on Friday. As usual Tony tossed his Skitterwalk at schooling mullet and quickly scored a lower slot redfish.

Insane Redfish Bite at Inlet
October 15, 2018

The redfish bite as Sebastian Inlet has been insane. Slots and lots of overs are being caught mainly on finger mullet. Seaweed has improved slightly, but it’s still been pretty windy.

Fishing the Wind to Your Advantage
October 15, 2018

We have been experiencing some very windy conditions lately. For most people this comes off as a bad thing, I can’t tell you how many customers or even friends that have backed out on a trip simply because “it’s too windy.” I personally love the wind, when fishing on windy days it definitely makes it very hard to fly, or sight fish, but staying tucked up in tight coves or residential canals, the opportunity to catch still exists. My favorite way to fish the wind hands down is by using it to my advantage.

FALL MULLET RUN

BELIEVE THE MULLET RUN HYPE!

The Fall Mullet Run Hits the Space Coast

I’ve written many articles over the years about the fall mullet run. I’ve used terms like frenzy, blitz, mayhem and frenetic to describe the fishing. Those are all good descriptors and are no exaggeration. Hit it when the run is going off and your tackle will be in tatters and you’ll have sore arms and hands from fighting and unhooking so many fish. Hit it when the run is not going off and you can still have a pretty good day…
