Great fishing this week on the Space Coast! So far, this spring has proved to be one of the best ones in recent memory. The water in all three lagoons is looking good; and aside from the lack of grass, things look great!
With things starting to get back to normal, I have been starting to get a few more charters. Luckily, the fishing has been excellent, from awesome trout fishing, a great snook bite, bull redfish and black drum, the lagoon has been full of options! Even with the cool fronts coming in from time to time — which is odd this late in the year — the topwater bite fishing the mullet pods early has been down right fun! Rapala skitter walks, or
the Mirrolure She Pup are my two go to lures. I personally like any color that looks natural.
As the sun rises, most the bait pods will start to diminish. As this happens, the mangroves and docks are always a great “go to” location. Casting paddle tail jigs, gulp shrimp, or sub surface lures along the shadow lines can produce good numbers of fish. If fishing artificial baits isn’t really your choice, large finger mullet or cut baits like ladyfish, pinfish, and mullet have been producing great numbers, as well.
Again, everyone try to do their best to social distance as well as catch and release for future generations, but most importantly get out and enjoy some Spectacular spring fishing!
