Temps Rising…
June 18, 2022

This past week has been hotter than Africa in the middle of summer 😂. The bite has been good from New Smyrna Beach south through Mosquito Lagoon. The bait has been moving in extremely thick along the intracoastal and up onto the flats. With all the bait moving in thick has made for a good bite from a variety of species.

Fort Pierce Inshore
June 13, 2022

After a bit of a lay-off due to the wind Kim and I were finally able to get out for a morning scouting trip. I decided to look south of town as we’ve not been this direction for well over a month. We hoped to find plenty of mullet and pilchards along the eastern shorelines and the predators which routinely feed upon them.

Calms Seas, Tarpon Biting
June 13, 2022

This week with the calm seas, the tarpon fishing has turned on! Shrimp boats are holding tarpon in there by catch as well as sharks. The beaches are starting to get tarpon in good numbers around bait fish. The redfish at the inlet have been pretty good, as well. The mangrove snapper have been eating really well with some catches up to 17-18 inches inshore.

Warming Up
June 11, 2022

The summer heat has definitely started to arrive making for some pretty warm days this past week. The warmer weather has not effected the bite here in Central Florida with clients bringing several redfish, trout and snook boat side last week. The bait continues to be plentiful in the backwaters towards the Mosquito Lagoon.

Tarpon, Abundant Bait Inshore
June 6, 2022

We have been getting some really good mangrove snapper up to 17 inches on live shrimp or small mullet and pig fish. Tarpon are scattered throughout the lagoon system as well, and they’re starting to show up along the beaches. Trout have been eating croakers and pigfish in 2 to 3 feet of water with abundant bait fish around.

Bite Should Pick Up Ahead of Incoming Weather
June 2, 2022

It seems as though summer has set in here in Central Florida. We are starting to get our afternoon thunderstorms and strong afternoon winds. This time of year is a great time to catch several different species from snook, redfish, trout, black drum and tarpon. The bite has been good throughout Mosquito Lagoon and north through the North Indian River.

Trout Bite Turning On
May 30, 2022

The trout fishing has really turned on with pigfish becoming more available. Tarpon are starting to show up around schools of bait fish along the beach. Inshore, there’s lots of tarpon ranging from 30 to 80 pounds. For tarpon fishing, large paddletails or flies can get the job done but nothing beats a well-placed mullet or croaker.

Decent but Inconsistent Bite Inshore/Nearshore
May 23, 2022

The inshore bite has been generally decent. In the inlet, fishing has been has been a bit inconsistent from the boat, but the jetty bite has been pretty good. Nearshore, meanwhile, snapper, mackerel and shark have all been producing reasonably okay, but not exactly on fire, either. There’s been a few tarpon showing up with some kingfish on the beach, as well.
