Capt Mike Mann has been fishing his whole life from Bass to Tarpon to Bones I love it all but chasing down Fat Red fish tailing in skinny water is my passion. Summer Tarpon off the beach or in the back country rock, so come get your fish on!

    Decent Inshore Fishing

    August 1, 2022

    Trout fishing has been very good lately with some really nice trout coming on either pigfish or croakers worked on the edge of the bars. The tarpon bite continues to be very good inshore. The beach tarpon fishing has slowed down a little bit with a cold water upwelling but should turn back on as the water temperature warms. Offshore, amberjack have been eating very well and if you’re lucky you might have a cobia come up on the reef.

      Calms Seas, Tarpon Biting

      June 13, 2022

      This week with the calm seas, the tarpon fishing has turned on! Shrimp boats are holding tarpon in there by catch as well as sharks. The beaches are starting to get tarpon in good numbers around bait fish. The redfish at the inlet have been pretty good, as well. The mangrove snapper have been eating really well with some catches up to 17-18 inches inshore.

        Trout Bite Turning On

        May 30, 2022

        The trout fishing has really turned on with pigfish becoming more available. Tarpon are starting to show up around schools of bait fish along the beach. Inshore, there’s lots of tarpon ranging from 30 to 80 pounds. For tarpon fishing, large paddletails or flies can get the job done but nothing beats a well-placed mullet or croaker.

          The tarpon have arrived in good numbers with fish ranging from 30 pounds to 100 pounders in the river. Some larger mangrove snapper have moved into the river system, as well, and will eat shrimp or small bait fish. The trout bite has started to turn on using top water with the large bait schools starting to show up.

            Fishing has been very good this week with tarpon showing up. The best bait by far has been finger mullet. The black drum and redfish bite has remained pretty good, too. Live shrimp has been working best for the black drum and cut mullet or ladyfish for the redfish.

              Good Black Drum Bite

              April 25, 2022

              The black drum bite has continued to be very good as these fish have moving into deeper water. But, if you want to find them, Side scan is pretty much a mandatory requirement! The redfish bite has also been pretty good. We’ve been catching them on cut mullet or ladyfish while working the edges of the mangroves. Tarpon are also starting to show up on the schools of bait fish along the ICW…

                Let’s Go!

                April 11, 2022

                Fishing has been very good, especially with the cooler temperatures and the Spring mullet run starting. Coming up on a full moon, the snook have been chewing and the nearshore reefs have been loaded with weakfish, sheepshead and even a few snapper.
