Welp, it looks like we busted our long johns out of storage just in time for it to be sweltering hot again. That’s Florida, for you. If it’s any consolation, the fishing remains fantastic on the Space Coast, with overwhelmingly positive reports coming in from across the board: the lagoons, surf, inlets, nearshore and offshore — and it might be about to get even better! Solunar theory predicts the SEASON’S PEAK fish activity to coincide with Thursday’s Full Moon. Find out what time you should be on the water below!
IN THIS WEEK’S FORECAST…

WEATHER OVERVIEW: Currently we are experiencing a SSE wind which has brought temperatures up to around 80 degrees. Starting Wednesday, rain chances should increase to 80% as the winds take more of an easterly pattern. It appears rain chances will remain 80% Thursday before dipping to 50% by Friday. Looks like we could be in for a wet week ahead.
