Slower Fishing this Week

I tried fishing live shrimp and mullet inside the port and at the N. jetty Tuesday. The 25 mph west wind made for a strong current and a hard time. I ended up getting two jack crevalle and a lookdown. I did see a lot of finger mullet, so the potential for a good trip is there.

Friday and this weekend I shifted my focus to the Indian River Lagoon. I noticed the clearest water I’ve seen in a long time, but some spots were all sand with no grass at all. I did find a fair amount of grass in deeper water, especially east of Port St. John. I saw a lot of 5-15 lb black drum, but couldn’t get any to eat.

Saturday, it became really windy out of the south-south east. I tried fishing in a canal, I got some 5-10 inch seatrout and an 8 inch redfish.

Sunday, the southwest wind had the water stirred up, but I saw some bigger black drum off my dock. I didn’t get any.

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.

    Fished both sides of the lock on Saturday with live shrimp and pilchards and didn’t get much either.

    Sounds like it was slow for pretty much everybody. Thanks for sharing, Kurt!
