Spacefish hit up satellite beach for some Wednesday afternoon surf fishing. Armed with a full arsenal of Native Salt Baits, our goal was to bring home dinner, and baby, you better believe we made magic happen!
Well, this is embarrassing… Late, last Monday night, in a frantic effort to finish the weekly fishing forecast, I misread the Solunar calendar and enthusiastically spread word to the world that the month’s peak periods of fish activity were slated for LAST week. They are actually in fact, THIS week. Thankfully, I was able to delete my post before being publicly skewered for it, or worse yet, pelted with lead by the Sebastian Inlet Jetty firing squad.
We went to Ponce de Leon in Melbourne Beach for a little surf fishing on Friday afternoon. The winds were picking up but I figured there was still opportunity to catch some fish. Apparently, I figured wrong. We had live fleas and shrimp and Fishbites. There were some bait thieves, but no significant bites beyond an occasional nibble. Other anglers were walking the beach, tossing artificials without any luck, either. The water got weedier over time, and by around 5pm, it was thick enough to send us home without any fish. Hopefully there will be better luck next time!
In honor of Snook Season starting back up, Mount This Fish Co. has offered Spacefish readers an exclusive — and unbeatable — deal. While supplies last, you can get a Full Mount 44″ Replica for only $275. That’s just about half the retail price of $528!
The MONSTER SQUAD set out on Sunday to have an epic night of fishing under the Super Blood Wolf Moon. With temperatures in the low 40’s and the wind howling from the NW, we strategically setup at the West end of Pineda Causeway on the Indian River Lagoon. Here, we had some nice wind cover that would be crucial in gutting it out through the extreme cold.
Spacefish checks in with the Mark Moses Show on Sports Radio 1960AM THE FAN. We talk about the effects of a potential early shark migration, this weekend’s super blood wolf moon, fast food at the White House, and more. Check it out!
Odds are, you’ve probably already heard everything there is to know about the Man Eating Wolf Moon because it’s been all over the headlines in newspapers and on the internet. BUT, what you may not know is that this blood lusting celestial event coincides with the season’s PEAK period of fish activity, as projected by the solunar forecast. Sunday is projected to be great for fish activity, but the true peak begins almost precisely upon the end of the Blood Thirsty Super Wolf’s eclipse.
Everybody that went out surf fishing on Saturday just crushed it. After hearing all the stories and great reports, including trophy permits and pompano limits, I decided to make the ultimate sacrifice on Sunday afternoon: I turned off the Chargers/Ravens playoff game and headed to the beach. Unfortunately, it seems the fish got all their eating in the day before, because it was pretty dead out there.
