A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING FORECAST EVERY TUESDAY
Ryan Wood will be among the first to tell you that the bite on the beach has been especially hot. Click here to check out his video from Saturday when he caught that big daddy snook (pictured above).
WAIT, THERE’S MORE…
After an exciting stretch of back-to-back-to-back weeks with red snappening and spiny crackening, one might think it’s a good time to take a breather on the sofa. However, that would be a big mistake as there’s some fantastic fishing to get into in-and-around the Space Coast right now — just check out the reports below. A new moon also presents some opportunities to capitalize on peak fish activity this week, at least, according to Solunar Theory. We’ve got the MAJOR and MINOR periods listed in the Bite Opportunity Index below.
Finally, if you’re interested in fishing with a local legend, we’ve got a great opportunity for you. Spacefish contributor and fishing guide extraordinaire, Capt. Jim Ross, is generously offering a limited-time discount to Spacefish readers — $100 off a half-day flats fishing trip. The trip must be booked before August 31st, 2019. Call Capt. Jim directly at 321-636-3728 to book your trip, and make sure you mention Spacefish to get your discount.
IN THIS WEEK’S FORECAST…
SPACE B.O.I. FORECAST
- Mangrove/Lane Snapper
WEATHER OVERVIEW: Still in thick of summer weather patterns, this week will enjoy low winds with high temperatures in the upper 80’s. As usual with this time of year, keep an eye out for scattered thunderstorms. Currently, forecasts are predicting a 40 to 50 percent chance of storms pretty much every day this week, so just be prepared. Luck avoiding these storms typically favors the anglers that get out early. Plus, Spacefish contributors are reporting that there’s plenty of quality fish to target in the lagoons and nearshore, so you don’t have to run very far to get them right now.
