Captain Alex Hughey is a 25 year old Florida native to the Space Coast. This being said, Alex has been able to focus his attention on the three main lagoon systems, the Indian River, Banana River, and Mosquito Lagoon.
It might be cold and windy, but the redfish bite is hot! This week was brutal! Windy, cold, but the redfish definitely haven’t seemed to mind. The more cold we get, the more consistent the fishing will become.
Cool weather is starting to move in across the entire Space Coast, but it seems the mullet haven’t gotten the message. From Ponce inlet to Sebastian, mullet are still lingering around the inlets and jetties — and the bite is still red hot!
Cool weather is finally arriving, and so are the mullet! The mullet run is finally starting to make its appearance. Large schools of mullet of all sizes are starting to flood the surf. This is one of the best times of the year and is always home to a plethora of different species ranging from tarpon, snook, redfish, big sharks, jacks, bluefish, and all sorts of other species!
Most anglers are well aware of fall and it’s potential for some fantastic fishing. The mullet migration, known as the “mullet run,” is about to be in full swing! Spawning drum and redfish in the lagoon, and acres of mullet covering the beaches are all great options and makes Fall fishing by far my favorite of the whole year.
Snook fishing on the Space Coast couldn’t be much better this week! Inshore, nearshore, it’s been pretty much as good as it gets, from pitching the trees to tossing live baits along troughs and sloughs in the surf the bite has been incredible.
This week has been some great fishing, especially for the linesiders. There are many ways to catch snook along the entire coast, from backwater ponds and tributaries, residential canals and fishing the jetties and beaches. Snook are definitely a favorite for anglers all around.
This week has been a crazy busy one! And nothing short of exceptional! Bull reds, large numbers of slot reds, snook and some nice trout, it’s been one for the books! The lagoon has had plenty of activity lately and the majority of the action seems to have been around the large glass minnows pods.
