ABOUT

I am new to the salt water fishing in the lagoon. So I am trying learn all I can!

    Sebastian Surf Fishing

    June 6, 2019

    We went to the surf today down by Sebastian looking for Snook or anything else really. The surf was pretty clear and we saw lots of bait fish and no seaweed. And a few mating turtles which was pretty cool too. I caught a whiting and a small hardhead. I did see some fish in the first breaker that looked like a snook and a couple of reds. Wife caught a Jack and something we’ve never seen before, turns out it’s a small Angel shark. Returned it to the water with no harm. Next time out will have live bait.

      Melbourne Beach

      May 30, 2019

      After reading Pompano Rich’s report we decided to head out to the beach this morning. We got there about 7:00 and packed up about noon when the tide started to come in. The weeds weren’t terrible early but when the tide switched they started to clog the lines. We were using live fleas and we brought a couple of seven foot poles to toss some snook jigs and DOA plastics to see what might hit.

        OBX

        May 27, 2019

        Went to vacation in OBX with my kids last week and did a little surf fishing and wade fishing in the sound. Nothing on the surf side, after talking to the local bait shop owners we determined we weren’t in the ideal beach location. The Pompano hadn’t showed up yet and I only managed one small white. On the sound side, the bait shop told us that the Spanish Mackerel were hitting so I bought a couple lures and headed out. Ended up hooking up on a small one. Lots of fun bringing it in, though. Put up a good fight and made a run until I turned up the drag.

          Last wk recap

          April 29, 2019

          We went to Melbourne Beach on Thursday for a few hours, with pretty good results with small whitings, one really big one and a nice Jack and a shark in the mix.

          Friday we headed over to Dragon Point and Mather’s Bridge area. Hooked up on a few trout early with Bass Assassin paddle tails and snapper on shrimp by the docks. Moved north of the bridge another small trout and on the next cast I hook up on something big, making the drag work and pulling line. The fights on!

            Sebastian River

            April 14, 2019

            So we went to Sebastian river before the rains came, we didn’t get out early though. On the water about 10:00. We went south out of the park on Roseland rd. Once again I didn’t do to well, a few lady fish. Wife caught two nice Reds, one was really nice about 3-4lbs. I was on my way to get a picture and she had it slip out of her hands 😯.

              April 11, 2019

              We went out to EGR today, beautiful day to be on the water. I personally didn’t do so hot, four hard heads, one large sailcat that put up a great fight, and a lady fish.

              The better half was the one catching everything today 🤷🏼‍♂️ She caught snapper, something else I can’t remember, and a nice jack. She got everything on shrimp and I got the cats on shrimp also. I was throwing light and dark paddle tails and only had a couple of short strikes. We didn’t see any Tarpon around.

                Wabasso

                April 5, 2019

                We took the kaykas to Wabasso yesterday and the wife caught her first Black Drum! We started out around the mangroves but with no success with shrimp and a few different paddle tails and plugs we switched up and headed to deeper water around the crab traps. We hooked up with a few nice trout and a small pompano. The wind picked up so we headed back to the mangroves to escape the wind and got a few snapper and this nice Black Drum. All and all turned out to be a nice day.

                  Spoil Islands

                  March 8, 2019

                  Went out and fished a couple of the islands around Grant today. We got on the water about 7:30 and used a few different top waters and didn’t get any takers. We changed up to Z-man silver split tail and I hooked up with five Trout all about 15” and one about 18”. The bite turned off around 10:30. Threw a gold spoon but still nothing. We got a snapper later on a live shrimp around the docks. Good day except for the wife getting hung up in the Mangroves a couple of times.

                    Indian River

                    March 4, 2019

                    Fished around the Islands out of Grant on Friday. My wife was using live shrimp with no results I tried z-man paddle tails and a jig and had a few short strikers on the z-man. Switched to a gold spoon and that was the ticket. Three lady fish, one king mackerel am pretty sure. The best fish of the day was a really nice trout about 22” from the west side of the island!
