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!

    Clear Water in Mosquito Lagoon

    November 29, 2021

    The water in the Mosquito in Lagoon is crystal clear now with site casting redfish becoming very easy on sunny days. Redfish and black drum are starting to school up and shallow edges of drop offs. A well-placed live shrimp will do the trick to make both fish want to eat. For reds specifically, I also always like throwing a Z man paddle tail 3 inch on an 8 ounce jig head. On the overcast days, top water has been very productive with the Mullet schools still around.

      Good Fishing this Week!

      November 22, 2021

      Fishing has been very good this week with good catches of redfish, trout, black drum, mangrove snapper, and snook. This is the time of year you can throw live finger mullet along mangrove shores and get great bites as well as sight casting redfish laid up along the shoreline. A live shrimp or a Z-Man paddle tail will get the job done!

        Great Cool Weather Fishing

        November 15, 2021

        The bite has been on fire with the cooler weather. Redfish have been cruising shorelines and will eat Z-Man soft plastics, live shrimp or chunk mullet. On overcast days the top water bite has been very good working near bait schools. If you want to sight fish or just enjoy catching fish this is a great time to book a trip.

          Site-fishable Water Inshore

          November 8, 2021

          The cold weather this past weekend has dropped the water temperature in the lagoon, making for clear site fishable water. Reds are cruising shorelines and will eat soft plastics or a well-placed shrimp. Snook are still being caught around structure using live shrimp, mullet and pinfish. There’s still a few tarpon around however the larger ones will start migrating south.

            Ready for Winter Patterns

            November 1, 2021

            Well, we’re finally getting some cooler weather! This should clear up the water in the lagoon as well as start the winter patterns. With cooler water, start looking for schooling fish on edges and along flats. Snook should be feeding heavily to prepare for the cold weather. Tarpon are still around but not much longer, they should begin pushing south. Roe mullet should start schooling and moving into flats, too.

              Cooler Temps, Hotter Bite

              September 27, 2021

              With the cooler temperatures and the mullet run going in full strength, the bite should be on fire this week. Anglers should expect good catches of bull redfish in the inlet and around the bridges. The tarpon should continue to be aggressive feeding on my finger mullet, as well. Fly fishing and the artificial bites should continue to get better as the water cools.

                Tarpon, Drum & Snapper

                September 20, 2021

                The fishing on the beach and in the inlet has been on fire with bull redfish and tarpon being chasing the schools of migrating mullet. Inshore, the black drum and mangrove snapper bite has been very good with some large mangrove snapper up to 20 inches being caught recently. The next couple weeks the mullet run should still be going strong, creating a great bite for artificial or live baits.

                  Reds, Tarpon, Snapper…

                  September 13, 2021

                  The bull Reds have moved into the inlet and have been eating either large select shrimp and croakers or finger mullet on the bottom. Tarpon have been very thick on the beach, weather permitting, and will eat properly placed large mullet or croaker. In the river the jacks, tarpon, snook, and snapper have been very aggressive around structures such as docks and bridges.
