Okay Fishing, but I was Able to Fish

This week had okay weather and I managed to find a few fish. I caught a few small reds and trout in the Indian River Lagoon. Most fish were in or near deeper holes. Use live shrimp with light tackle for the best chance. Brown tide is really bad right now, so I honestly would avoid the area. Your inshore best bet would be the north Mosquito Lagoon near Ponce Inlet or near all the Treasure Coast inlets.
I got offshore Sunday afternoon. We wanted to test out our center console, so it wasn’t a serious trip. We were unsure of the increasing north winds. We went northeast from Port Canaveral so that if the winds and seas became bad, getting in wouldn’t be a problem. We got a bunch of red snapper, and had a great time testing gear out. There were a ton of weedlines in the 80-110 ft range, but nothing on them. The 61 degree green water was probably why. This makes me wonder how the gulf stream has been recently.

I'm Kurt Boyken from Merritt Island. I'm 18 and I've been fishing since 2010. I fish inshore near my home on the Indian River Lagoon. I catch black and red drum, trout, tarpon, and a few small snook. When weather permits, I will fish out of Port Canaveral for the many various species caught nearshore and offshore. My very favorite is big tarpon.
