    Mullet Running, FINALLY!

    October 14, 2019

    Last week, the inshore bite was great and the mullet run is FINALLY starting. In the lagoon around the islands and shorelines, there’s lots of slot trout, some pompano, snook and redfish all in the mix under the schools of mullet. The most productive areas for us were shorelines from Palm Bay to Grant and down to the Inlet. Storm Coastal jerk bait and paddle tails and the ABOA Dart Spin rigged on 1/8 ounce jighead were the hot ticket. The inlet bite turned on over the weekend as the schools of snook and redfish were mixed in with the mullet schools. Live mullet were best baits but pinfish and pigfish were productive at times as well.

      It’s Still Blowing

      October 7, 2019

      It’s been another windy week on the Space Coast, but the fishing has still been pretty good. There are plenty of places to hide out of the wind and catch some fish. The trout bite is very good now on topwater, subsurface and jerk baits and there has been good numbers of mackerel on the spoil islands eating glass minnows. The Inlet had been decent for redfish earlier in the week, but more recently we’ve seen this bite supplanted by snook.

        Sebastian Inlet/Inshore

        September 30, 2019

        Heavy winds once again for most of the week but calmed for the weekend. The inlet bite has still been good with a lot of slot redfish on pinfish and mullet. Snook were a little slower but there were a few caught each day on pinfish, pigfish and finger mullet. There has also been a lot of big jacks in the inlet which are always fun.

          Fishing the Sebastian Shorelines

          September 23, 2019

          It’s been another windy week on the water, but that didn’t stop the fish from biting! We fished the shorelines in Sebastian focusing on the mangroves and spoil islands that had bait. Plenty of jacks and Ladyfish, as well as snook, reds and trout were all active. We had a couple boat slams during the week, too, with good numbers of fish on each trip.

            Windy Fishing

            September 16, 2019

            Wind, and more wind, was the theme of the week. The seas momentarily died down for a window over last weekend, only to pick back up again from Monday through Friday. Fishing was great at the inlet with slot redfish hitting any bait you could put in front of them. Pretty much every cast produced a nice red — and if could get past them or the jacks, there were snook chewing in the mix, too.

              Expect Bigger Mullet Schools Soon

              September 8, 2019

              With Hurricane Dorian upon us, we didn’t get out too much, but managed to do some fishing a couple of times this week. There’s lots of bait everywhere, but the water is dirty along the beach and along the shorelines and spoil islands. Sebastian Inlet has had a lot of finger mullet running the shorelines with slot redfish and under-slot snook giving chase. There’s also plenty of Pompano, Mangrove and Mutton Snapper in the mix and feeding on the mullet schools.

                Sebastian Inshore/Nearshore

                August 26, 2019

                Nearshore fishing is still pretty good with Bonito, Kingfish and sharks along the beaches and some tarpon, as well. Snook have been on the beaches as well and at the inlet. The Snook are feeding on small schools of pilchards and glass minnows, with the best live baits being the pilchards and Mojarra. Best baits for Tarpon are mullet, greenies or pogies. Kingfish and bonito have been hitting lures as well as live greenies. Nearshore reefs have been holding some of the kings and Lane and Mangrove snapper. Live shrimp or small pilchards have been good for the Snapper.

                  Dark Water Fishing

                  August 19, 2019

                  This rain has caused high waters in the drainage canals and the dams in the Sebastian River and Turkey Creek, putting a lot of fresh water into the lagoon and inlet, along with the nearshore reefs. The water is black and it looks like we are fishing the St Johns River just outside the inlet on outgoing tide.
