New Smyrna Beach, Mosquito Lagoon And Daytona Beach FL

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 from. The trout bite has been good with many 25\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" and bigger coming boat side and a lot of them have been sight fished with live shrimp. They have been chewing live mullet and soft plastics as well. The redfish and black drum bite has been just as good with several large schools of both through out the Lagoon system. The redfish have been eating anything from ...full report

Anna Maria Island Fishing Charters March 27th-April 9th 2017 Report
04/19/17 4:12 PM
Capt KT

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 a lot tougher as high pressure from the cool front dominated the area. Bait is plentiful and can be found around the grass flats near Anna Maria Island and around structure in Tampa Bay. The Snook and Trout bite has been the most consistent. We have been catching plenty of Snook in the 20\\\"-25\\\" range (Picture) and lost several keeper Snook this week that we were ...full report

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, Jacks and a few Redfish that went home for dinner for my anglers. 50 yards down the mangroves we landed some Snook, all were the 22 to 24 inch range to score my anglers with their Slam. This upcoming week we will have daily high temperatures in the upper 70’s and maybe an 80 degree day which will help the water temp rise along with the approaching Full Moon on Saturday, We ...full report

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 ft of water are holding both snappers and groupers. Vermilion snapper are a deepwater snapper that we catch by dropping a chicken rig down to the bottom. A chicken rig is a rig with 4 or 5 hooks, tied individually and each baited with a chunk of squid. The point of the rig is to catch multiple fish at the same time, or if the snappers are picking at the bait, multiple chances ...full report

Flamingo, Everglades National Park Backcountry
11/30/16 10:28 AM

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 the babies at first light, but really slows down in the afternoon due to the high water temperatures. The rain we have gotten should keep the water temps down. Sight fishing for redfish and snook in the backcountry still remains a good option. A lot of redfish mudding around on low water. The key is to find low water because once that water gets up, they scatter and are ...full report

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 and I had the Trout located in an interior lake and the plan was set. I met Von and Cindy at 5:30 at the dock and they were chomping at the bit, ready for the action that was to come. I loaded up for the short run to an interior lake close to the dock and about 3 casts later Cindy was hooked up and she jumped out to a four to nothing lead before Von got in on the action. ...full report

Get Ready For Hot Summer Action!
06/09/12 11:18 AM

Capt. Ron Schurr June 7, 2012 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 low and late afternoon low light situations. Experiencing the explosive strike of a big 8 pound gator trout is an awesome sight! The St Johns river is loaded with small shad and mullet, so it's important to "match the hatch" when selecting a sub surface lure. The Swim n Image made by Heddon and Bombers Long A lipped diver lures have been deadly for trout. The ...full report
