New Smyrna Beach, Mosquito Lagoon And Daytona Beach FL Posted Apr 19, 2017 4:11 PM by patrick rood
It seems as though the winds are starting to give us a little break and with clear water that adds up to a good day of sight fishing here on Mosquito Lagoon. We have started to get a good number of bait pods showing up on the flats and in the creeks of New Smyrna Beach. We have also had a pretty good shrimp run flowing out of the creeks as well the last couple of weeks so needless to say the fish have had a lot to choose ...more

April winds bring May flowers...
During the first week of April we seen strong winds all week, starting out of the south at 20-25 knots then ending the week with a strong 20-25 knot winds out of the north as a cool front passed over our area. During the first part of the week fishing was steady with the South wind and the cool front approaching. The end of the week, when the front finally passed over, left the biting ...more

Reel Till U Feel Charters fishing report for Tampa Bay.

Ft Lauderdale Posted Nov 30, 2016 10:29 AM by Fishing Headquarters
We\\\'re doing a lot of deep drop fishing off Ft Lauderdale this week. We\\\'re catching some pretty cool stuff. With the surface water temperatures being so hot, it\\\'s sometimes good to go deep this time of year. Snappers and groupers are the main bottom fish that everyone knows. They are biting good on the deep wrecks, any wreck in 200+ feet of water should be holding some fish. Our wrecks in 200-400 ...more
Flamingo, Everglades National Park Backcountry Posted Nov 30, 2016 10:28 AM by RisingTideCharters
We have definitely received our fair share of rain in the Everglades over the last week or so. With having so much rain, in my opinion, keeps the tarpon around. There has been some tarpon when the tides are favorable on the Gulf Coast and also some fish in the interior of the Glades. With a huge amount of rain fall over the last few days, the baby tarpon fishing should really take off. It has been pretty good for ...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
Seeing is believing on Tampa Bay’s inshore waters and flats. Observe most any Professional Charter Captain and you will see they all have one thing in common. They are all wearing a quality pair of polarized sunglasses. We may argue about which brand is best, what lens tint work best but we all agree seeing is a must.
I am amazed by how many charter clients I have that can’t see our target just feet from the boat! Imagine if your Captain couldn’t see Snook moving along the mangroves, Redfish schools on oyster bars, birds diving on Mackerel, Kingfish and Bonito. Fishing can be tuff enough let alone fishing areas void of fish.
Cutting the glare is another very important factor when searching shallow water species and keeping headaches away. Scanning the water hour after hour chasing beach Tarpon is a prime example to have quality sunglasses. Imagine missing a school of Tarpon only to see another angler hook up while you miss out.
Personally I have Maui Jim, Costa Del Mar and Kaenon sunglasses on board. There are numerous color lens tint for low light and bright sunlight conditions. Pick a pair that works best for your application or get several as I do. It’s also very important while fishing or day to day activities to have UVA, UVB and UVC protection. Protecting your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays in critical.
A quality pair of sun classes is an investment so protect them. Invest in a micro fiber lens cloth. I have learned the hard and expensive way that using paper towels, fishing shirts will scratch lens. A leash is also important as to not drop your glasses or loss them while on the water. Trust me I have seen client’s expensive designer glasses slip off their face in the hot sun then spend time trying to retrieve them vs. enjoying the day.
If you need prescription sunglasses like I do, have no fear as many quality glasses are available in RX.
