    First Day of Summer

    June 10, 2021

    As a high school teacher this year has been really weird to say the least, so I was happy that this officially week kicked off the first day of summer, wohooo! I’m trying to use my break to explore new areas in Brevard that I usually do not have enough time to go to. This week I fished a few miles of super shallow mangrove islands. I was able to find around 15-20 redfish and a couple of juvenile tarpon’ but all were very stubborn to eat soft plastics. I eventually convinced one to come and play, but other than that it was just a nice day to get out on the water, and see some cool views…See y’all next week!

      Scouting A New Area, Catching Fish In The Middle Of The Day

      May 28, 2021

      This week I was scouting some new areas to get out of the wind. Using google maps I found an area that had a long mangrove line that was protected from the wind. I did not launch until 2pm in the afternoon, and wasn’t expecting to catch much that late into the middle of the day. The water was super clear in some places, so I slowly bumped my trolling motor down the mangrove line. It wasn’t long until I started seeing mullet and mojarra on the sandy flats next to the mangroves.

        This week I continued to find clear water in shallow, mangrove protected areas. It seems like it takes me a couple of hours of slowly moving on the trolling motor before I find a section with fish. There is no grass but a lot of mangrove roots, so it’s important to move slowly and keep your eyes peeled for any activity. Once you see a fish, chances are more are nearby. Continue to be patient and slow your trolling motor down as much as possible while still making way. Fishing artificials such as gulp shrimp rigged weedless or cut bait has been the trick these last few weeks.
