There have been a lot of big reds on the eastern shoreline North Indian River Lagoon between North Merritt Island and east of Titusville. The fish have been scattered in the North Merritt Island area and blind fishing chunks in 2-4 ft deep has been the best bet. I have seen some tailers that wouldn’t eat a thing or spook. The water has been murky NASA Causeway southward.
In the area east of Titusville, the water has been fairly clean considering the water quality issues the lagoon has faced this year.
There have been large schools of bull reds up there. I got one right at sunrise Saturday. They stopped eating afterwards. Probably, because there were too many fishermen.
Unfortunately, Hurricane Micheal will bring a lot of rain and SSE winds through Thursday. At least we don’t have any damage concerns. Improving weather is likely Friday and this weekend. Maybe the mullet run will be on along the beaches. Let’s hope.
