A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING FORECAST EVERY TUESDAY
The seatrout are biting — this beauty was caught with Capt. Jesse Austin of Going Coastal Charters.
WIND FROM EVERYWHERE
Typical for this time of year, the wind will be coming at us from all directions. North, east, south and north, in that order. This will make it challenging for the folks wanting to get offshore, but fortunately, there’s still good fishing options in the lagoon, inlets, surf, and freshwater.
The trout bite really seems to be heating up in the lagoon so this may be a good place to start. There are plenty of baits that can be fished on a ¼ or 1/8 ounce jig head from Gulp baits, Saltwater Assassin, trout-touts, Mirrolure Lil Johns, etc. These are all great baits to use to cover some ground while searching for the fish and they work for a variety of species such as snook, redfish, tarpon, flounder, ladyfish and mangrove snapper. You just never know what you going to catch when using this approach, and it’s always fun fighting them on lighter spinning combo.
