New Smyrna Beach , Daytona Beach and Mosquito Lagoon
The weather has been hot and so has the bite here in New Smyrna Beach. We have had some great days with numbers of trout and redfish coming boat side . Look for the large bait pods early holding on the edges of the flats and you will find trout. I like to throw several different baits from soft plastics to live bait another great choice is a plug . As the mid day ...more
Lake Toho Posted Mar 20, 2013 1:20 PM by HookedOnFishingCharters
The fishing on Lake Toho has been good this week using live wild shiners. My half day trips averaged 10-12 fish per trip. The biggest bass of the week was 7 1/2 lbs. Outsides grasslines have been productive as well as slow trolling edges. Bass Assassin's fished weightless and rattletraps got us some decent fish as well. The fishing should continue to improve as the weather warms.

Anna Maria Island July Fishing Report
Wow! Do we have a lot of Tarpon and I mean a lot. There are Tarpon by the thousands in passes, on the beaches and in the bay. If you can’t find a Tarpon to cast to in five minutes you must be blind, they are everywhere. We had a great week on Tarpon. It’s really nice to get out of bed in the morning, hopping into the boat just knowing you are going to have a great day ...more
Fort Lauderdale Posted Jun 27, 2014 7:27 PM by Fishing Headquarters
A giant tuna was caught by Capt. Rod aboard the Kaydiddle on a fishing trip that left Fort Lauderdale. The boat went 60 miles offshore, to just outside the Bahamas. Giant tuna come through the pass between the Bimini islands out into the Gulfstream current on their migration northward. On this fishing mission, most of our fishing was done without even baits in the water. We patrol the waters with baits ready to launch ...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.
