If you based your weekend off what you see on the news, you might have planned doing something other than fishing. If so, big mistake! The rain and thunderstorms forecasted for this weekend never really materialized on the Space Coast. A westerly wind on Friday took care of the red tide problem on the beach. Meanwhile, the fishing was great!

Earlier this week, Caleb reported with great enthusiasm that the Pompano have returned to Brevard’s beaches. It got me excited because the surf conditions and bite have been pretty lousy for what seems like forever now. Then I got word from Damon that Caleb extended an invitation for us to come out and join him for a morning Pompano run — OH, HELL YEAH!

The presence of karenia brevis cells (red tide) have not yet been found north of Sebastian Inlet in the daily water samples tested by FWC. However, Brevard residents across the county are observing conditions on the beach that are synonymous with outbreaks of the toxic algae, e.g., dead fish, itchy throats, etc. We’ll be providing updates as the situation continues to develop and we welcome you to share any of your own personal observations.
I was hoping that conditions on the beach would finally open up for some nice surf fishing this weekend… Unfortunately, it remained pretty rough out there and weeds were also still being churned up in the shore break. Since the conditions were less than optimal, I settled for a trip to Mathers Bridge with my brother.
