    Snook, Tarpon, Jack, Kings, Sharks…

    May 16, 2022

    The snook bite is pretty good at the inlets this week. Live pogies, pilchards, greenies and majorra are the top live baits to try for them. Along the beaches, shark, tarpon, jack and king mackerel are striking slow trolled live baits. For the tarpon and jack, 60 to 80 pound test leaders and a VMC 7/0 circle hook work best. For the kings and sharks you will need to add a short piece of wire to this rig.

      Fishing the Leeward Shorelines

      April 25, 2022

      With all of the heavy east wind we have not been able to fish on the near coastal or offshore waters this past week. We have found some redfish cruising the leeward shorelines, though, and quite a few trout and ladyfish, too. All three species are hitting saltwater assassin paddle tails in the gray ghost, silver mullet, and mamas 14K color patterns. Live shrimp are also working when rigged on a split shot rig.

        Chasing Reds

        March 7, 2022

        It’s been blowing hard for the last few days but the redfish bite before the blow was really good. Most of the bigger fish are still running the near-coastal waters right now but I have started to see more big reds returning to the flats of the Banana River since these heavy easterly winds have commenced.

          Black Drum Bite on Fire

          February 28, 2022

          It’s been another fantastic week of fishing for us at Fineline Fishing Charters. The black drum bite has been on fire. Everyday this week our customers have caught their personal best fish. Most of these drum are running 25 to 40 pounds, but we have had fish that scale to 50 pounds as well. Sight casting to schools of drum numbering into the hundreds on the flats of the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon is one of the most exciting ways we know to fish.
