November 2019 Fishing Report

Inshore- Mullet run has thinned out slightly this week. Fishing still remains strong. Live lining mullet around structure will produce plenty of snook, jacks, ladyfish, trout, redfish, & flounder. Fish open water with larger mullet for large tarpon. heavy leader & large circle hooks on heavy tackle is suggested. Flounder fishing has been excellent this week. fish a fish finder rig on the bottom with finger mullet or shrimp for a few doormats for the dinner table. Sea Trout fishing has been steady up by the st lucie power plant fishing 2-5′ of water drifting grass flats.
Offshore- Trolling this week has been steady for Black fin tuna, mahi, & a few sails. Plenty of bonita mixed in so rig a few dozen ballyhoo if your planing to troll dead bait. 90-130′ has been pretty good area with condition and bait. Everyday is different so be prepared to fish shallower or deeper based on where the best looking water condition is. Bottom fishing is hot on the 6 & 8 mile reef for snapper. Lanes, Muttons, & mangrove snappers are plentiful. Chicken rigs or long leader rigs will produce the desired species. 6-10 oz lead based on current for the day. Throw a live or dead sardine out, free lined on wire for added kingfish when on anchor or drifting while bottom fishing.

September 2019 Fishing update

Inshore- Snook season is off to a strong start this month. Mullet run has made finding bait very easy. Fishing live mullet around bridges, docks, & mangroves will get plenty of action from snook, jacks, bluefish, redfish, & sea trout. Tarpon fishing is good around deeper channel edges fishing larger live or dead mullet. Heavy tackle recommended. Night fishing around the bridges has been excellent this week for snook & tarpon. 

Offshore-This week should be excellent when the weather lays down enough for us to get offshore. Mahi fishing will be excellent. Find a good weed line or hard edge & set out a troll or drift live baits for good pelagic action.  If your looking to bottom fish, mutton snapper fishing should be excellent following storms. 6 & 8 mile reef along with Loran tower ledge are great areas to catch snapper & grouper this time of year. Long leaders & large live baits will weed out smaller unwanted bottom dwellers. Kingfish are around in 70- 90’ depths. Trolling or drifting live baits or ballyhoo on planers will get plenty of strikes.

April 2019 Fishing Report

Inshore- Snook & Jack Crevalles are around in full force this week. Fishing live white baitfish is your ticket to success this week. Fishing around structure will provide as many bites as you have baits in your livewell. We have also been catching a few larger sea trout this week as by catch when targeting snook & jack crevalles.

Offshore- Fishing offshore this week has been stellar for snapper & cobia. Mixed in are tons of rudderfish & amberjacks. Mahi are being caught live baiting along weed lines in 180-220′. If live bait isnt an option trolling has been somewhat producutive along weedlines in this same depth. Find a good condition an skirt the outside of it with dead ballyhoos for bites from Sailfish, tuna, mahi, bonita, kingfish, & cobia.
