It looks like the fishing last week was really good. In the Banana River around Mathers Bridge area they are catching a lot of redfish and Sheepshead. On the beach, fishermen are scoring big on Pompano — there are quite a few shorts in the mix, but spending some time will give you have a great chance to out. Offshore out of Port Canaveral, there are still a lot of tripletail being caught along with Pompano and a few scattered Reds. While the dolphin were hot last week in about 250 ft of water, the sailfish were abundant in 175 foot of water. On the bottom, everything out to about a hundred foot was cold and green, and a lot of are sharks being caught.
The canals around Satellite Beach are holding juvenile tarpon, nice black drum, mangrove snapper and a few trout. The tripletail bite at Port Canaveral has been spotty but we are still seeing some decent fish come in. Along the beaches pompano, bull whiting and bluefish seem to be the hot topic of conversation.
Fishing is looking really good this week! The Pompano bite is off the hook on the beaches. Clams and live sand fleas are getting the job done well. In the Ranana/Indian River canals, mangrove snapper, black drum, sheepshead, and smaller-sizes reds are all being caught in good numbers. We’re also hearing several reports of tripletail being caught in the lagoon down by Grant around the crab buoys. The tripletail are also holding offshore around the first weed line a couple of miles out. Rays and cobia are out there, too.
We are seeing scattered pompano on the beach with some nice bull whiting mixed in and lots of small bluefish. The river is still holding just about everything. Black drum, redfish, trout, mangrove snapper and sheepshead are all being caught between Eau Gallie Causeway and Pineda Causeway. Port Canaveral is still the place to target tripletail. We are still seeing good numbers of fish being caught. Look for any floating debris and work the buoy line.
The trout bite in the lagoon around the brides has been solid. We are seeing good numbers of fish being caught. Pineda Causeway is holding some really nice black drum at the moment. Down south the pompano bite has been decent.
Happy Monday everybody as we charge into the short week and get ready for Thanksgiving it looks like the fishing has been pretty good, those of us who fished offshore got into some Cobia and a nice mixed bag of snapper.
It looks like the bite is on! For the beach fisherman, the Pompano have started out snapping, the black drum have showed up and large catches of Blues have also been reported — and let’s not forget about those tasty Whiting and Margate that are just waiting to jump into the frying pan. For the Pompano, fresh dead shrimp, sand fleas, live or frozen clams appears to be the bait of choice. For the drum shrimp and clams.
The river has been much of the same from last week. We are seeing some really big reds around the bridges and docks and large schools have been seen tailing on the flats north of Pineda. Big pompano are also being caught around the bridges using live shrimp and pompano jigs. Mathers Bridge has been good at night for targeting some of these big redfish, too. Use a big chunk of cut bait of crabs will work too.
