tarpon fishing

The nearshore tarpon and shark action out of Canaveral is still on fire this week. Capt. Justin and I have been putting multiple fish in the air and bringing quite a few to the boat with our customers over the past seven days. This activity should continue and even get better as we move into the first part of September and we start to see a larger version of the “mini” mullet run that we saw along this section of coastline over the past week. Live pogies and mullet are still the top bait choices to get these fish to strike. Lures will also work at times with Saltwater Assassin 5-inch soft plastics and Rapala long cast shallow in the size 12 being the two we’ve had the best luck with.

Both Captain Justin and I have a few days open over the next few weeks, so if you’re looking to get out and chase one of the silver kings or pull on the awesome variety of large sharks that are here now, give us a shout and we will put you on them. This is also the last week we are offering a $100 discount to our Space Fish readers. This discount is good on one of our half-day 4-hour flats fishing trip in the Indian River. This trip must be booked with us and run before August 31st for the discount to apply. Call Captain Justin or myself at 321-636-3728 to take advantage of this special promotion.
