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!

    Ponce/New Smyrna

    Out of Ponce Inlet, the tarpon fishing has continued to remain hot. These fish are in good numbers all over the place: along the beach, inside the inlet and behind the shrimp boats. Also, bonita and plenty of sharks are being caught along the beach, too. Live pogies and mullet have been consistently making the magic happen. In the Mosquito Lagoon red fishing has been good using chunk bait or pigfish.

      Trout & Reds

      July 28, 2019

      This past week we’ve had a good trout bite with some nice bull redfish mixed in. Live pigfish have been the best bait for targeting both species. There have also been some really nice snook being caught in Mosquito Lagoon as well as Ponce Inlet. If there are shrimp boats on the beach the tarpon bite has been very good so take advantage if you find them.

        Trolling on the Beach

        On the beach, the kingfish bite has been great trolling Rapala plugs or silver spoons. The trout bite in the lagoon is much of the same from last week. We are seeing a good number of fish, the “go to” bait being live pigfish. We are really starting to see more tarpon in the river, as well.

          Pigging Out

          July 8, 2019

          Trout fish has been on fire this week in the Halifax/IRL. Pigfish have been, by far, the “go to” bait of choice. The tarpon bite has also been really strong in the ICW. Again, live bait such as pigfish and croakers have worked best, but, we have also done just fine using swim baits, as well. If targeting redfish, chunk mullet has been the best bait to use.

            In the Halifax and North IRL, the fishing continues to be really good for spotted seatrout. They are loving pigfish right now, which also happens to be the bait that’s consistently producing the biggest trout. In the Intracoastal Waterway, tarpon are plentiful. On fly, they are digging a black and purple pattern, and live baits are working well, too. Finger mullet or a well-placed live shrimp does the trick. Over on the beach, the bite is really starting to heat up and we’re seeing loads of Spanish mackerel, especially.

              The trout fishing in the Mosquito Lagoon has been great over the last week. The bigger fish are being caught on croakers and larger pigfish. Tarpon are in the ICW as well as the back creeks so the fishing overall has been good.

                Volusia Backwater

                May 27, 2019

                The fishing has been very good this week with great numbers of black drum and good-sized trout in the backwaters. The tarpon started to show up in good numbers in the backwater as well as along the beach around the bait pods. There are still cobia being caught on some of the nearshore reefs. There are also still some rays lingering around that have fish on them as well.

                  We’ve had a great mixed bag of fishing this week. The black drum bite has continued to be good. Any type of stinky bait fished on a jig-head will typically get them to eat. The lagoon has been loaded with jacks, ladyfish, blues and trout. We also started getting good numbers of tarpon ranging 30 pounds up to 100 pounds!
