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.

    Indian River Lagoon System and Forecast

    July 26, 2020

    Steady east and southeast breezes turned my focus to the lagoon system where I caught some nice fish, but it was not easy. The water level is still high, but brown tide blooms have unfortunately come back strong with the rain and heat. The upper Indian River is in worse shape in general than the Banana River, south Brevard, and the Mosquito Lagoon right now. That said, most of those areas are still not great; you can see bottom in 1-2ft for the most part with a few spots much better.\

      Tarpon Time

      June 28, 2020

      The fishing has improved again after a not so great week. Tarpon are showing up thick in all sizes all over the lagoon system. The bite is best early morning and slowing down towards noon, but they can be caught all day and night. Juvenile tarpon ranging from 1 to 40 pounds are in pretty much every creek or canal on the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon as well as some of them in the Banana River and Sykes Creek.

        When Everything Aligns Perfectly

        June 15, 2020

        Earlier this week, the mahi run happened. Multiple well organized weedlines developed from 140ft out to the edge of the Gulf Stream in 250ft. It was flat calm with nice blue water, and there were a ton of mahi. You could see them jumping on the weedlines. There were a lot of peanuts. We caught the majority trolling, but they swam up to the boat a couple times in groups of 2-8 fish usually. That’s where it becomes important to have light spinning rods ready to pitch.
