    Black Drum Turned Back On

    May 6, 2019

    The trout bite has been as consistent this week as it was last week. You can catch these fish on 4 inch Saltwater Assassin paddle-tails around the drop offs in the Indian River Lagoon. On the days when it is overcast in the morning they have been responding well to topwater lures as well. The drum bite has turned back on this week and we are getting good numbers of these fish on crabs and shrimp as well as fishbites.

      Good Trout & Black Drum Bite

      March 18, 2019

      We had a really good trout bite this past week on topwater and paddle-tails fishing around the drop offs and in the sandy holes in the river. Most of these fish have responded better in the afternoon rather than the morning. The black drum have been actively feeding when you can find them, especially when the sun warms the water up. The bluefish, pompano and Spanish mackerel are in the shallow waters near the beaches and we have been getting them to bite Goofy style jigs as well as small paddle-tails and subsurface baits like Rapala Subwalks. Make sure you give us a call at 321-636-3728 or go to our website for booking information.

        Hot Trout Bite in IRL

        March 11, 2019

        The trout bite in the Indian River has been hot this week. Captain Jim and I have been getting these fish on topwater first thing in the morning an on soft plastics as the sun gets higher in the sky. There have also been a variety of other fish to catch such as ladyfish, jack crevalle, bluefish and pompano. The snook and redfish have been hiding in the mangroves along the shoreline and have been actively feeding when you pitch a live bait to them.

          Expecting Snook and Tarpon Soon

          February 27, 2019

          This week we have been doing a lot of charters in the Sebastian area. The bluefish and Spanish mackerel bite has been really strong when you can avoid the wind and waves. We are expecting snook and tarpon to show up on our coast as the weather warms up, we will be looking for schools of these fish throughout the next couple weeks. The black drum and trout bite has been consistent in the Indian River as well.

            Tripletail Remains Hot Target

            January 15, 2019

            This week the tripletail bite has been on fire in the near shore waters. Keep an eye out for weed lines and other floating debris for these fish to school around. Most of our luck with getting these fish to bite has come from using a ½ ounce jig head with alive shrimp on it. The fish are ranging anywhere from 10 to 25 inches with some even bigger fish now and then.
