A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING FORECAST EVERY TUESDAY

The Spoil islands are closed to the public, but Brevard County boat ramps are open and fishing remains a viable (and attractive) activity as we continue to weather COVID-19 and the measures currently in place to control its rate of growth. In this week’s forecast, we’ve got a lot of great reports recapping some fantastic fishing and we’re also announcing a WINNER of the Flats Fishing Trip Giveaway sponsored by Sunstate Pest Management!
IN THIS WEEK’S FORECAST…
SPACE B.O.I. FORECAST
WEATHER OVERVIEW: This past Saturday was absolutely awesome weather for fishing. Unfortunately, this week isn’t expected to be as generous. Wednesday, the winds will be at the week’s lowest as the easterly winds will shift out of the West. After that, the wind will pick back up and should remain throughout the weekend. There’s a 40% of PM thunderstorms forecasted for Easter Sunday, so if you’re planning to do any fishing, it may be wise to get an early start. Getting offshore may not be an option this week, but there’s plenty of other opportunities in the lagoons, inlets and freshwater. Have a great Easter and enjoy some quality time with the ones you love.
