CENTRAL FLORIDA’S BEST FISHING REPORT

redfish mullet run

This little angler got his hands full fishing the tail end of the mullet run with Fired Up Charters!

On particularly bait-heavy days, it’s easy to get excited and declare the mullet run is “ON,” but there’s no doubting that the consistency and intensity isn’t what we’re traditionally used to experiencing this time of year. Now, it appears the run may already be over, but did it ever really even begin?

It’s also the last week to enter the American Air & Heat Giveaway for a chance to win a PENN Conflict® II Combo. The winner will be announced in next week’s forecast, along with the first of two winners of the BT’s Welding Costa Sunglasses Giveaway!

Challenging Conditions this Week!
October 22, 2020

Windy weather is upon the Space Coast; not to mention a very unstable pattern for October. Regardless, there is still places to hide from the wind and fish to be caught! So far this week the best bet has been hiding from the wind in residential canals and spoil islands. The unusually warm October temperature has actually been producing some really nice tarpon. Mike and Weston kulisky spent their day casting artificial baits to rolling tarpon and had some great success!

Catch the End of the Mullet Run!
October 21, 2020

The production along Brevard’s beaches continues to check all the boxes whether you’re fishing in the surf or from a boat. Snook, redfish, tripletail and cobia have been available to nearshore anglers. Local fishing charters haven’t seen a shortage of action with big redfish and shark fishing highlighting the majority of family fishing trips near Port Canaveral and Sebastian Inlet.

Great Diversity in the Surf
October 19, 2020

Surf fishing near Sebastian Inlet continues to provide exciting diversity on the beach! There’s really no telling what’s about to grab your surf fishing rig. Live bait, dead bait, and Fish Bites have been a go-to combination for recent catches. Live sand fleas along with schools of mullet have been readily available to anglers prepared with a sand flea rake and cast net. With the primo baits so accessible, it’s been a wide open opportunity for surf fishing anglers. Everything from snook, tarpon, sharks and even permit are frequenting our Space Coast beaches.

Incredible Shark Fishing!
October 19, 2020

We were fortunate to get a decent week in! The fish cooperated, as did the weather:) We even did great on mahi and decent with kingfish, though they were pretty scattered. The sharkfishing for blacktops and tigers has been the best it’s ever been. Unfortunately, just as quickly as the good fishing came, it’s gone and lost to another week ahead of heavy blowing.

Lackluster Mullet Run
October 19, 2020

We had some great weather and fishing earlier last week but the bite slowed after the front on Tuesday with some short periods of good fishing each day. There’s been lots of snook and reds at the inlet at times, but you had to wait out the bite which is tough for some anglers. We were able to run the beach and found some decent action from sharks, tarpon and some redfish.

Redfish of all Sizes Nearshore
October 19, 2020

This past week has been awesome for us over at Fineline Fishing Charters. We have been consistently catching redfish of all sizes using mullet in the nearshore waters. Whether you want a great picture with a giant redfish or a nice slot size red to take home for dinner, now is the time to get out there. And if you want to catch sharks, I’m not sure there is a better time of the year. Hammer heads, bonnet heads, fine tooth, dusky, and many more sharks species are all over the place and even the little ones put up a good fight. There have also been jacks, Spanish mackerel, and bluefish to keep you busy in between the sharks and the reds.

Tarpon & Reds Still Thick in NSB
October 19, 2020

In the New Smyrna area, tarpon remain thick in the Halifax, Indian River Lagoon, and along the beach. Similarly, bull reds are running thick in the ICW, stretching from Ponce Inlet all the way to Edgewater. If there’s anything left to the Fall mullet run, this is the probably the last week to see it. Although the weather isn’t projecting great to fish off the beach, there may be some opportunities this upcoming weekend…

Inshore, Surf, and Offshore
October 18, 2020

In Satellite Beach, the river and the canals are holding lots of mangrove snapper. There’s still some snook being caught along with sheepshead. The surf fisherman are starting to catch a few Pompano, redfish and tarpon along the beach. In and around Port Canaveral, anglers are still catching some nice redfish and jacks. The offshore fisherman are catching some dolphin in 230 ft of water, and the bottom fisherman are catching some mangrove snapper, a few mutton snapper, and a lot of short Cobia — but if you put the time in, you will get a keeper.

Columbus Day – Discovered Fish
October 12, 2020

I was in no hurry this morning as the water was yesterday, while weed-free, very dirty. To my surprise, I was met with calm seas and clean water. The tide was about half way out on this pleasant overcast morning with light winds out of the west and a pleasant 75 degrees. I set up 3 rods. 3oz pyramids today was all I needed to hold bottom, and with the west wind I could toss them in the trough or launch them out well over 100 yards.

Bite Picking Up Offshore
October 12, 2020

Fishing offshore has really picked up for the Mahi and smaller, but great eating smaller fish, like vermillion snapper and triggerfish. We’re also pulling a few AJs in the mix on the bottom, as well. If you’re gunning for the mahi, focus your efforts on the rips from 180-240′ depths.

Bass Biting Everywhere on Toho!
October 12, 2020

The fall bite has started and the bass are biting everywhere! The recent cold fronts we’ve had have really kicked the fish into overdrive and they’ve started gorging themselves for the winter.

Mixed Results from the Surf
October 12, 2020

Surf fishing on Brevard County beaches delivered mixed results this week. The biggest factors affecting catches were contributed to water clarity and seaweed.
