Indian River Lagoon Coast Fishing Forecast, July 2020

Summer has officially arrived on the Indian River Lagoon coast, as the mid summer doldrums are currently upon us.  It is also the time of year when tropical weather systems and offshore water temperatures are as predictable as Wall Street.   Just when you think you have got things figured out, a summer squall will blow in and kick up the seas, or the cold-water Labrador Current will move in and shut down the seaward bite.  Setting all these possibilities aside, many opportunities for angling adventures exist for us both inshore and offshore of the lagoon coast in July.

As I set down to write my April  fishing forecast, I like many of you am landlocked by these troubling times.  Dreaming about fishing is currently the extent of my fishing adventures, dreaming of the day I return to the sea with friends and family.  Until then, I will share my forecast with you  so we can travel together into our imaginations to a place where  the fish are happy, hungry and stupid.  I’m thankful to all of  you, my friend, family and past clients who have shared time on the water with me over the past 20 years.    I will also share in my gallery some of the fish caught in April aboard Three Quarter Time.  Until our next adventure, stay safe.

Orlando Area Fishing Forecast, March 2020

For number of reasons, I always look forward to the glorious bloom of my azaleas. Their magnificent colors are not only pleasing to the eye, but they also signal the end of winter and the beginning of the spring bait migration. As the days grow longer and the ocean begins its gradual warming phase, 68 to 72-degree range, the spring fishing bonanza on the Indian Lagoon Coast  of Florida kicks in. As usual, weather will serve as the determining factor in establishing the magnitude and progression of the bite, and forecasting Florida weather is left only to fools. Also, like the bloom of the delicate azaleas, the bite will sometimes pass quickly before you have a chance to really experience it.

February Orlando Area Fishing Forecast

Mosquito Coast Fishing Charters

Nothing has been routine about the weather so far this winter. Warmer and breezier conditions have only provided us with a few decent weather days in January, and the long-range forecast for the beginning of February is not looking too favorable. Also, there is still the chance of freezing conditions returning this year, but your guess is as good as mine. I’m not complaining, just stating the facts, because even with the worst weather we are still blessed to be fishing and catching here in Central Florida.

September Fishing Forecast

Muller Madness

September marks the beginning of the fall bait migration, primarily silver mullet on Florida’s east coast, with their numbers increasing as we progress into October and November. It is hard to predict precisely when or how strong the mullet run will be, but along with the arrival of the bait, comes the predatory species we love so much.
