    It’s Flounder Time!

    April 20, 2022

    It’s flounder time on the Space Coast and the bite couldn’t be better! The last few weeks have made for some really great flounder fishing, from Sebastian to Ponce and everywhere in between, flounder have been showing in good numbers and some great size fish at that!

      Trout Season Is Here!

      April 7, 2022

      Trout season is upon us here on the Space Coast! Spring is one of my favorite times to get on the gator trout. They typically spawn and larger fish are caught this time of the year, more so than others. I will say it seems as if the numbers aren’t quite good this year as others, but I believe the inconsistency in our weather could play a huge roll in my observations.

        Redfish Bite Picking Up

        March 23, 2022

        Spring has sprung and the redfish bite is definitely picking up! This week the redfish from 18 to 45 inches or more have been cooperating quite well. Slot fish have been tight to shallow mangrove shorelines. One key has been looking for the small glass minnow pods. With all the glass minnows around, the artificial bite has been good when tossing smaller plastics like gulp paddle tail baits and doa paddle tails in silver mullet or black and silver. I personally prefer throwing more natural colors.

          April Showers

          March 15, 2022

          March winds bring April showers has been a saying for many years, and this March has definitely been living up to that reputation. With all the wind we have been experiencing lately there has still been a good bite tossing artificial baits around large mullet pods.

            Tough Fishing!

            February 15, 2022

            It’s been a tough week of fishing here on the Space Coast! Winter has definitely been taking its toll around the entire region making water temps the among the lowest in years. This has made the bite very difficult, but on the flat and sunny days the black drum have been very cooperative. Large schools are hitting the flats in all three lagoon systems. These drum are using the sunny days to feed and have been getting up as shallow as possible feeding on crustaceans like small crabs, shrimp, and other small organisms.

              Beating the Bushes

              January 26, 2022

              Cold, wet, and windy pretty much sums up the last week and a half here on the Space Coast, leaving very few options to get out fishing. Fortunately, if you’re willing to brave the conditions, there are still a few options that are productive such as sheepshead fishing, and my favorite, beating the bushes!
