I would like to talk about what I call “Opportunity Fish”. For example; when I’m targeting redfish or trout and I’m moving to and from my flats spots, I come across an opportunity fish. What is an opportunity fish? This may be a cobia, shark, jack, snook or a school of mackerel or bluefish working a bait pod. On a recent charter off of Homosassa, I saw in the distance what we call “rain” ...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

Tampa bay March Fishing Report
Capt. Matt here from sunny Florida the weather has been great. This past week the afternoons have been high 70’s and just breaking 80’s a few days. Yesterday when sitting in my boat watching my customers excitedly reeling in Snook I looked out over the crystal clear water and thought to myself, “I wish everyday was like this”. We have a lot of really nice days around here, ...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

The grouper season started up this week on May 1 and there are some good catches of groupers already hitting the dock in Fort Lauderdale. Reds, blacks and gag groupers are biting on the reefs and wrecks, just a mile off our coast. We\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re catching them mostly on our drift fishing trips and night anchor fishing trips, both trips which concentrate on bottom fishing. Squid chunks work well, as do sardines ...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
Always use a well balanced outfit. This means the rod, reel, line and lure should be made for each other. Do not load a light outfit with a heavy line. Conversely, do not throw a huge lure with a light outfit.
