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!

    Schooling Reds

    January 18, 2021

    We finally have clean water and redfish starting to school up in the lagoon. On cooler mornings, look for the south east facing shorelines to be holding more fish. A great way to catch redfish and trout right now is using a 3 inch paddle tail rigged weedless or a 1/8 ounce jig head tipped with shrimp. Look for several weeks of great fishing with the cooler temperatures ahead.

      Great Sight Fishing

      December 28, 2020

      Fishing has been great for redfish, snook and trout. We are fishing clean water, sight casting to these fish in the flats. Reds are starting to school up. They should continue to stay in nice schools for the next several months. It’s a great time to get out on the flats with a good pair of polarized sunglasses and watch them eat!

        The water is starting to clear up and should continue getting cleaner through this week with the cold temperatures. Site casting should be at a premium. Nearshore and in the inlet, we are getting flounder, bull reds and snook. Should have some cobia starting to show up this week. It’s a great time to fish inshore or offshore this week!

          Upper Mosquito Lagoon

          November 30, 2020

          Fishing has been great this week in the upper Mosquito Lagoon using 1/4 jig heads tipped with shrimp. Catches have been pompano, reds, flounder, black drum, snook, jacks, mangrove snapper and ladyfish. We had lots of fun catching this mixed bag of species. Look for cleaner water this week with the cold front and this should make sight casting to reds much easier.

            Active Snook & Redfish Bite

            November 9, 2020

            This past week with the approach of the tropical storm, the bite has been very good for redfish and snook. They have been chewing very readily on white Z man paddle tails. After this weather settles down look for fish cruising shorelines with the highwater and look for snook hanging around mangroves as well as any structure such as docks.

              Cleaner Water Coming

              November 2, 2020

              With the cooler temperatures over the next couple of days, look for the water in the lagoon to start to clean up. This may just increase the sight-fishing possibilities for redfish. The inlet is also a good option, still holding large bull redfish, tarpon and snook.
