Kissimmee Chain of Lakes/West Lake Toho
With most of the hydrilla topped out this time of year, your best bet to fish the edges of the hydrilla patches. Plastic baits are a good choice - Zoom trick worm, Flukes, and the Vibe are the most popular. The Summer showers are producing flow out of shingle creek. Best Bet is right at daylight. Goblins Cove has been producing very good quality fish. Most fish are hanging deep ...more
Crystal River And Homosassa Fishing Report Posted Feb 26, 2015 4:39 PM by Capt Kyle Messier
I’m happy to report that there is NO Snow here in Crystal River, FL and I for one wouldn’t know what to do if I did encounter some of that white stuff. Many of my northern customers tell me that snow is extremely beautiful and a blast to play in. I can’t help but think that this is the denial coming out for those that have not seen the sun in days and in some cases even weeks. Although the Nature Coast may not ...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 Posted Feb 26, 2015 4:38 PM by Fishing Headquarters
It’s been a great couple weeks of dolphin fishing in Ft Lauderdale. The dolphin are coming in pretty close, almost into the reefs. The best bite is happening in 200-400ft of water. Most dolphins have been schoolie sized, with quite a few gaffers mixed in. The other day, Capt. Rod caught a humongous bull dolphin, a 50 pounder. This is the season of big fish in Ft Lauderdale.
Blackfin tunas are also abundant on ...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 happen to get poked by a catfish fin, such as the dorsal or pectoral fin of a hardhead (sea catfish), you are guaranteed you some serious pain!! As soon as it happens, rub some of the slime from the fish's belly/body into your wound. And if you have any Asprin or Tylenol handy, take a couple! You will get very Numb around the wound for about an hour or so, but the slime should keep you from getting infected. The slime is a NATURAL ANTIDOTE for the bacteria. If the Dorsal or Pectoral fin has broken off in you, Stop fishing and get to a clinic or Hospital IMMEDIATELY and have it removed.
