    Big Catches Hitting the Beach!

    April 12, 2021

    Surf fishing’s firing on all cylinders this past week with big catches hitting the beach! As predicted, the clean water accompanied with ideal water temps brought enormous bounty for surf fishing anglers on the Space Coast. Astonishing numbers of whiting, keeper pompano, and sharks headlined the week’s catches. Bluefish and mackerel made a resurgence from the prior week and that was a welcome sight for light tackle beach casting anglers.

      Surf Fishing Continues to Excite

      March 29, 2021

      Surf fishing continues to excite beachgoers interested in catching pompano, sharks, whiting and bluefish galore. We’re seeing similar trends in the last two weeks with the infiltration of small Spanish mackerel and bluefish by the swarms. This in turn has led to an unreal shark fishing bite that continues to be red hot. Shore-based shark fishing trips produced consistent action on blacktip sharks, lemon sharks, sandbar sharks and bonnetheads. Whether it’s the mackerel and bluefish you’re after or an epic battle with a blacktip shark, now is definitely the time to get in on the action.

        Party Central in the Surf

        March 23, 2021

        Party Central has descended upon surf fishing anglers along the Space Coast. Spring break, pent up travel demand and relaxed restrictions for COVID have made Florida and Brevard County beaches a hot spot for tourists and locals alike. While parking, litter and traffic has suffered for us locals, it’s absolutely a welcome sight for business owners.

          Pompano Remain Top Target in the Surf

          March 11, 2021

          Exciting opportunities await for surf fishing anglers during the month of March. Last week we saw a major uptick in keeper pompano being landed along with bull whiting, Spanish mackerel and sharks. Traditionally, the spring pompano run has coincided during these warming months and this year looks no different. Pompano fishing looks to continue its rein on the top of the target species list, but don’t overlook the diversity of other fish to target. Spanish mackerel, whiting, flounder, black drum and sharks will be on tap for our Space Coast beaches. This transitional time represents a smorgasbord of species for shore based anglers fishing the surf.

            Pompano Staging South

            March 1, 2021

            Our surf fishing charters last week saw a great amount of big bull whiting, a few large pompano, bluefish and mackerel. Water clarity and conditions were inconsistent on a day-to-day basis, which made it hard to set up a pattern on the fish. Fishing around Sebastian Inlet provided catches of large pompano midway through the week that had surf fishing anglers fighting for position. There weren’t any extremely high numbers of pompano coming through, but the ones that were caught ranged from 15-18 inches and weighed over 3 lbs. This is a good sign the fish that are staged currently in Vero Beach south to Fort Pierce and Stuart are charging back for the spring run.

              Bull Whiting Keeping the Surf Bite Busy

              February 20, 2021

              We’ve been catching big bull whiting, pompano, drum and sharks in the surf. Last week saw an upswing in not only the number of pompanos, but the larger pompano mixed in with higher numbers than previous weeks. This can be attributed to the increase in water temps from the lows we saw weeks prior. While we still weren’t catching recreational limits of pompano, the ones we did catch were averaging between 13-16” to the fork of the tail. Beautiful 2-3 lb pompanos on the sandy shores of our Space Coast had clients grinning with joy.

                Black Drum, Pomps

                February 1, 2021

                Surf fishing Florida’s Central East Coast produced similar catches to last week in terms of species and consistency. Black drum catches provided thrills for those who could fish through the tougher conditions that were posed towards the end of the week and into the weekend. Higher surf conditions and northerly flowing current made it challenging to keep lead sinkers and pompano rigs held to the bottom. With that being said, those with proper surf fishing equipment were able to maintain bait presentation and find success in local waters.

                  Patience Pays off in Pursuit of Pompano

                  January 29, 2021

                  Guided beach fishing charters produced plenty of action on local beaches this past week. While the beginning of the week had pristine conditions with water clarity and calm seas, the bite didn’t mimic what the appearance depicted. The bite remained slow for target species like pompano, whiting and black drum. With that being said, the immense amount of bluefish, mackerel and small jack crevalle kept surf fishing anglers busy between the more prized species.
