We only made it offshore two days due to the weather but it’s hot out there right now. Everything seems to be biting. We are getting Amberjack’s fairly deep, grouper in 150’, kingfish on the reef and Mahi on the troll.
With all of the rain, the water in the lagoon is high but has remained clear which has allowed for some outstanding sight fishing this week. On overcast days the trout bite has been on fire using either croakers, pigfish or topwater plugs like the skitter walk.
The Grand Canal has been hot with reports of slots reds, small snook and mangrove snapper. Fish live shrimp up against the mangroves for your best action. At Mather’s Bridge the mangrove snapper have been pretty consistent as well.
I seldom fish on a charter unless asked OR when I'm fishing with Tony (Mr. Top-water). Tony is on a mission to catch a 10 pound spotted seatrout and to make things more challenging he uses Skitterwalk plugs almost exclusively.
It's Friday everybody! Welcome to the weekend and we hope everybody had a great week despite the weather conditions. The Anglers that were able to get out in between thunderstorms caught a variety of fish in the lagoon and some small sharks showed up around the causeways. The sheepshead, mangrove snapper and trout are also still snapping.
Spacefish checks in with the Mark Moses Show on Sports Radio 1960AM THE FAN to talk some Space Coast fishing! Ryan Wood of RWood Outdoors also joins the conversation to discuss the current controversy surrounding the sport of land based shark fishing.
The canals in the Central IRL are really fishy with the recent rain as of 5/14. Cast net a lot of finger mullet on the flats (they are thick right now) and be prepared for tarpon, snook, reds, and trout.
