Shark fishing has continued to provide some awesome action and excitement. We have seen a big influx of the offshore sandbar sharks lately. These species of shark are normally the annoying large sharks that are known to eat ½ your kingfish many times while offshore. I’m not sure as to why there are so many so close to the beach. Possibly breeding? And when I say close to the beach, I am talking ...full report

Warning: Convicts on the loose
That’s right, it’s that time of year to look for the Convict fish AKA “sheepshead”. With the colder waters these fish can be found anywhere there is structure. Look around the rock piles, docks and channel markers. On a recent charter, I anchored on a near by rock area. I used a #1 hook with a small weight and a piece of shrimp along with cut up shrimp ...full report

New Smyrna Beach,Mosquito Lagoon and Daytona Beach Fishing Report
If you can manage to get out on the water in between cold fronts then the fish are there to be caught. It just seems as though the cold fronts have not stopped hitting us since the beginning of winter. The creeks of New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater area have had good numbers of redfish,black drum and trout along with flounder in the ...full report

Happy Holidays. Thanksgiving already came and went and here comes the New Year.
The last few weeks have been awesome fishing; dare I say some of the best we had in a long time. Kingfish, mahi, sails and a few hoo on the offshore side while the tarpon, bull reds and snook have been nonstop on the beach. It amazes me how good it’s been. This month should continue for a great offshore run of kings ...full report

Had a day off from work on Wednesday and it was only 1-2 ft seas. We started seeing sail fish busting bait at about 150 foot so we set out a four pole spread trolling 7 knots. We had one deep chugger with ballyhoo, one on the down rigger with an islander, port was a naked ballyhoo on a mid range on the out rigger and the starboard was the short ballyhoo on a chugger. First to go off was the deep chugger. ...full report

Well the seas have been bad off shore for the last few weeks so most of my fishing has been inland. There have been bass O Pleanty on the two lakes I fish in Orlando. However the size has been on the 1lb. to 3lb. side. For the drop offs we have been fishing a 3 inch size diving rapala 5-6ft. Hugging the top of the grass that grows from the bottom of the lake the bass have been ambushing the heck out ...full report
|35 Miles Out Of Port Canaveral|

Well, took the boys offshore even with the 50% chance of rain. Drug ballyhoo with skirts on two outriggers, set one deep on a chugger and another down deep about 60 feet on a weighted islander. First rig to go off was the downrigger and low and behold it was a shark but a good one for shark steaks for the grill; so into the fish box it went. Next up was a the deep back and it was a short hit that left ...full report

On Saturday 8/11, we fished from the pier from about 12-3. We caught lots of pinfish, but also one non-keeper mangrove snapper and one beautiful triggerfish, about 8 inches long. We caught these fishing on the left side of the pier (casting into the channel) near the end, but not at the end using dead shrimp. Using only a tiny piece of shrimp (the size of a man's ring finger nail) on a small hook ...full report
