Cape Canaveral Offshore Report Posted Jun 23, 2015 10:09 PM by fishkid
What a great month we had. Both near shore and offshore have been providing plenty of action. This month should be pretty much the same. Mahi may be tapering off but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try.
NEAR SHORE, Pogies (bunker) have been more consistent to the south down towards Patrick AFB. Get your live bait and fish just outside your bait pods in the 20/30-foot range. Use 50lb mono with a 9/0 circle hook. ...more

As a charter captain and being on the water with so many clients, sometimes there are certain trips that stick with you. A few days ago I took out two couples. After talking to them, one gentleman named Scott informed me he has been fighting cancer for over 5 years. One thing he said he really wanted to do was to go offshore fishing. Scott also said his back was bothering him and he wasn’t supposed ...more

Fish have feelings too !
Being a charter captain on the water and fishing with clients as much as I do, I’ve come up with a lot of theories of my own, I know your thinking “oh no, not another one of Fishdaddy’s theory’s”. (This theory is only for released fish of course) How many times have you fought a fish pulling drag and fighting all the way to and into the boat with what seems like endless energy. ...more

Reel Till U Feel Charters fishing report for Tampa Bay.
With the Rain, Wind, Cold Fronts & Small Craft Advisories has made getting out on the water difficult. On the days I was able to run my charters the morning bite was rough with the bite turning on in the afternoon as the water temperature had time to rise.
On one trip we fished the outgoing tide around a Oyster bed with great action, Trout, Sheepshead, Ladyfish, ...more
Ft Lauderdale, Florida Posted Jun 23, 2015 10:09 PM by Fishing Headquarters
A line from one of my favorite books, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” pretty much sums up the fishing this week in Fort Lauderdale. We had some awesome trips where we hit wahoo, mahi-mahi or some big fish off the wrecks and we had some trips where we couldn’t get a bite no matter what we tried. The good news is that the fish are out there, they just aren’t making it easy on us. Dolphin ...more
Get Em’ Early Or Get Em’ Late! Posted Jul 25, 2014 4:18 PM by Nomad
Now that the fireworks have come and gone it’s time to get out and do some fishing. Since the last I’ve done several trips in between family vacations. Unfortunately, it seemed to rain for almost two weeks straight when I returned forcing me to reschedule some trips. A few days ago that all changed and we have now settled into our typical summer pattern and fishing again.
On my last trip before leaving town ...more

Hello fellow anglers. What a great fishing trip, a wonderful day on the water with a lovely couple in from Mississippi. Mrs. Cindy, recently in all the way from Afghanistan, came to enjoy some of the best fishing anywhere in the world. Von gave a plan of attack and he wanted Cindy to tussle with a big Redfish before she was planned to deploy back to Afghanistan on Monday morning. First we needed some fish for a fish fry ...more

Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fishing has been outstanding for big speckled trout the last 2 months. The spring and summer months are great for fishing top water plugs and lipped diving crank baits in deep drop offs along the St Johns River. I have had the most success using "walk the dog" style lures such as a Zara Spook and Skitter Walk plugs in the early morning ...more
If you don't like that red blood line in your Pompano or Whiting, then bury a coffee can, or similar container, up to the brim in the sand. The can will hold the fish from flopping around in the sand. Having a couple of holes in the bottom of the can will drain out the blood. Here is what you do: I like a dish towel to wrap around the fish when taking it off the hook, then I race over to the coffee can where I have a small fillet knife to cut the throat of the fish and immediately put him head down into the can. It will flop for awhile, but this is pumping all the blood out and actually alleviates the fish's misery quicker, before placing into the cooler. Oh, make sure you keep your ice bagged! The reason I say this is keeping the ice on top of your fish will keep them colder than ice underneath. Cold will want to travel down not up. As you add fish it will make it easier to just grab the bag and place it on top. I try not to allow my fish to sit in standing ice water, in my opinion it makes the meat mushy.
