ABOUT

I, Kurt Boyken, have been fishing the inshore waters of Brevard County for over 10 years catching redfish, tarpon, snook, trout, and black drum. I run offshore and nearshore out of Port Canaveral for the many various species caught when weather permits. I enjoy sharing knowledge a; perhaps little too much.

    2020 Hot Streak Continues

    April 6, 2020

    I need to start this report off with an urgent message so that we don’t lose our right to fish or access to boat ramps. Please comply with the social distancing guidelines in place. Brevard County is one of the few places with no boat ramp closures yet, but failure to comply could shut the ramps down.

      Steady Fishing Inshore with the Ocean Coming Together

      March 16, 2020

      The canals have remained steady for all species in the Indian River Lagoon system. Live shrimp and even pieces of shrimp are the easiest way to do this, but paddletails work too. With warming water temperatures, the flats are starting to come together, but they will not get that great unless seagrass grows back. I was very encouraged to find some growing in this area that was barren just a month ago. I was also encouraged by the dozen or so redfish I saw. Fingers crossed that we can remain clear through the summer.

        Canal Bite Continues

        March 2, 2020

        Most canals on all portions of the lagoon continue to produce very high quantities of 12-20 inch black drum. Fishing super light tackle for these drum is as good as it gets right now. Trout, redfish, and sheepshead are also in the mix. Snook and baby tarpon may eat on the warmer days between the cold fronts. Live shrimp is by far the easiest way to fish the canals, but artificial works as long as you retrieve it as slow as possible.

          Dial in the Canals for Inshore Success

          February 24, 2020

          Widespread low, crystal clear, but barren conditions continue to make the canals the place. These canals on the central Indian River and Banana River hold six species in order from easiest to hardest to catch; seatrout, black drum, redfish, sheepshead, tarpon, and snook. Live shrimp at the edge of the mangroves or under docks makes for easy and awesome fishing, that is once you locate one quality fish.
