Stickmarsh/Lake Garcia Bass Report

By |2.4.2019|

The warm weather lately has been a pleasant surprise. The bass are back to working beds and eating everything in sight in order to prepare for the spawning season. We have been landing bigger bass and higher fish numbers in the last few days. The bigger fish have been on swim baits in about 2-3 feet of water. The Gambler EZ-Swimmer in black and blue and also in lane toad colors are best.

North of Brevard

By |2.4.2019|

Fishing has been great with the clear water and the fish have been chewing! Shrimp tipped jig heads or a 1/8 ounce jig head with a Z-Man bad shad colored paddle-tail will get the job done. Black drum have been schooling in the deeper edges and will eat a 1/8 ounce jig head with a live shrimp on it.

Well, I wish I had some great news to share but the truth is that the winds have been terrible and kept us landlocked. One day was fishable and we caught zero. the few Amberjack we caught were eaten by sandbar sharks. all in all it was a total dump as we say. Though this stinks it is a very predictable time of year with bad weather. I wish we had better news but this is the plain truth.

Tough Past Week

By |2.4.2019|

Last week was a tough week if you were in the fishing business. As with everything you have some tough times and it wasn’t the best week of fishing as the water temps dropped to 56 degrees in the Indian River Lagoon near Sebastian. It slowed the bite down inshore for sure but we managed to get some trout, jacks and ladyfish.

Pompano, Tripletail Still Being Caught

By |2.4.2019|

We are seeing scattered pompano on the beach with some nice bull whiting mixed in and lots of small bluefish. The river is still holding just about everything. Black drum, redfish, trout, mangrove snapper and sheepshead are all being caught between Eau Gallie Causeway and Pineda Causeway. Port Canaveral is still the place to target tripletail. We are still seeing good numbers of fish being caught. Look for any floating debris and work the buoy line.

Here come the Sheeps

By |2.4.2019|

It’s that time of year, we are seeing lots and lots of sheepshead and drum being caught. The most consistent catches seem to be on dead shrimp using a light leader and small hooks. Also, the snook bite has been good at the jetty. Shrimp and pinfish have been the bait of choice. The water is clearing up in the river so you should expect the trout bite to pick up as well.

Since it blowing we going

By |1.30.2019|

Well, since it's blowing cold and rough I'm taking a road trip to Boca, hoping for a chance at a winter time tiger shark. On the other foot... Inshore snook action has been crazy I even seen some triple tail floating looking like leafs... Redfish and black drum are on the flats, but heavy in the mix with the annoying catfish -- don't get stung! It'll just about brings you to tears... What's weird is that I have not been seeing sheepshead.... Hmmmm maybe we need a sheep hearder...?

Tough Weather

By |1.28.2019|

Strong winds, cold, and rain kept me off the flats this week. There were some small reds and trout in deeper water out of the wind. Very light tackle and small live shrimp was productive.

IRL/Mosquito Lagoon

By |1.28.2019|

With the extremely windy conditions we’ve had over the past week Captain Justin and I have been concentrating our efforts in the Indian River lagoon system with our customers. Black drum action remains very good on most days. Saltwater Assassin jigs tipped with crab or shrimp scent have been working best on these fish.

(Almost) Back in Season!

By |1.27.2019|

Get ready for it -- snook season opens back up on the first of February! In the meantime, black drum remains the talk of the town -- from the inlet, to the beaches and lagoon, the bite for these big uglies IS ON! There's also a good number of bruiser redfish in the mix around Sebastian Inlet, too. These fish will pretty much eat anything right now -- shrimp, clams, sand fleas, cut bait, finger mullet, bucktails. Everything we're trying seems to be working! In the surf, anglers are still catching some pompano despite the rough conditions. Speaking of rough, it looks like we’re in for another windy week ahead. But, the fish still gotta eat! Come on down and get some 3 ounce jigs and have some fun out there!
