    Spectacular Nearshore Fishing

    March 30, 2020

    Spring is usually one of the best times of the year for giant seatrout, but what’s really had my attention lately is the nearshore fishing around the inlets, from Ponce to Sebastian, even down to Fort Pierce and everywhere in between, the fishing is all pretty similar. Most fish are on edges of the rock jetties and drop-offs in search of large live baits, including jumbo shrimp, pilchards, pigs and pin fish. Match your bait with the appropriate hook from 3/0 circles for shrimp and threadfins to 6/0 j style hooks for your larger thicker baits like mullet and pin fish.

      How to Catch Sheepshead

      February 12, 2020

      Sheepshead seems to be the talk to the town! I have had numerous requests on information about how to catch sheepshead! Most everyone knows that this time of the year sheepshead are a popular target. These fish make great table fair, reproduce quickly, and give for a pretty good pull on the line!

        Where Have All the Redfish Gone?

        January 30, 2020

        Where oh where have all the redfish gone?! It seems as if all of our redfish have mutated into black drum! I’d be lying if I wasn’t a little concerned about this lack of redfish. Although, winter usually isn’t the best for redfishing, this year has been exceptionally slow, which is why I press harder and harder in encouraging everyone to catch and release!

          Think DEEP!

          January 20, 2020

          Windy and cold means think deep! This week is expected to get really cold! If I said the fishing has been easy I’d be lying, between the crazy winds, up and down with temps changing the fish don’t really seem to know what to do!

            Bigg’ns On the Beach!

            January 2, 2020

            It’s that time of the year! Throughout the entire region from Sebastian to cape canaveral the beach is finally turning on. Weather permitting typically on northern or westerly winds this time of the year the beach usually provides lots of opportunities from tripletail, pompano, whiting, to one of the common favorites the bull redfish, this week the redfish seem to be holding around the baitpods in 10-20 feet of water and are hungry for just about anything you can get to the bottom.
