A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING FORECAST EVERY TUESDAY
Capt. Alex Hughey’s fishing game is so strong he is sometimes accused of photoshopping his catch photos. No photo editing required, people — that’s the real deal!
DRUM POUNDING ACTION!
The hot start to 2019 rolls on! Inshore, anglers are having a hay day boating +30lb monster black drum. In the surf, pompano and trophy permit continue to produce some banner days, while big reds remain schooling just off the beach. Offshore, cobia are showing up in record numbers and boats are doubling up on sailfish. Heck, a world record breaking 9.65lb puffer fish was just caught out of the Port. It’s an incredible time to hit the water no matter what type of fishing you want to do, so get out there!
Also, don’t forget about the big lunar event on Sunday night/Monday morning — this Bloody Supper Wolf Moon coincides with the season’s PEAK period of fish activity, according to the solunar forecast.
