Orlando Area and Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Forecast, June 2016

Calm conditions across the water will allow for those with smaller boats to venture further out into the deep blue sea in search for ocean predators, and facilitate a smoother and faster ride for those with larger vessels.

Mosquito Lagoon and Orlando Area Fishing Report, May 12, 2016

As our summer doldrums begin to settle in on Florida’s east central coast, site fishing opportunities have improved. Slick calm weather conditions and clear blue skies are making it easier to see pushing and tailing schools of redfish and black drum on the Mosquito Lagoon flats.  Water levels remain high, so access to flats is easier for shallow draft boats.

Mosquito Lagoon Black Drum Fishing Report, May 9, 2016

Although the weather was very fine this week, I only fished one charter on the Mosquito Lagoon.  The rest of my time was spent celebrating my 35 year wedding anniversary with my lovely bride Sandi at the Hammock Beach Resort in Flagler Beach.  She’s been my partner and friend for over half of my life, and I’m blessed to have her by my side.

East Central Florida Fishing Forecast, May 2016

May’s Fishing Forecast

As the breezes of April give way to the summer doldrums, warmer and calmer ocean waters set the stage for some of the best near-shore fishing experienced all year, especially for the folks running smaller boats. The baitfish have already arrived in good numbers and the strong easterly fetch which set up during the end of April will push in clean water, flotsam and fish inshore.

Indian River Lagoon Coast Fishing Report, April 25, 2016

Fishing on the Indian River Lagoon Coast of Florida this past week continued to be good with large black drum and redfish being the mainstay.  When contacted by John from Boston, he expressed his desire to put his 12 year old son Danny on a big fish and my first thoughts were to target tarpon and sharks out of Port Canaveral, but as breezy conditions and elevated seas materialized making Plan B was our next option.  Here on a short vacation, John, Danny and Kyle only had one day to fish, so we opted to target big black drum in the Indian River Lagoon, and we managed to put Danny on his all time largest fish which he caught all on his own.

Indian River Lagoon Coast Fishing Forecast, April 2016

April’s Fishing Outlook

As many of you have heard by now, a brown alga bloom in the inland waters of the Indian River Lagoon system has resulted in a major fish kill in all reaches of the Banana River Lagoon and portions of the Central Indian River Lagoon.  This is sad news for some parts of our east coast estuaries, but if there is a bright side to this story, this event has open the eyes of many who prefer to look the other way when it comes to the health and preservation of our fragile resources.  Another positive note is the fish kill is currently isolated to the central IRL and has not occurred in the portions of the Lagoon system north of SR 405 (NASA Causeway) and the Mosquito Lagoon.  This forecast is based on my past experiences fishing in a healthy lagoon system, so I may be off a little on my predictions this month.

St Johns River Fishing Report, March 22, 2016

As usual, the blustery breezes of March kicked in last week, but we still managed to catch some very respectable largemouth bass on the St Johns River near Orlando.  This morning we watched the full set at first light, and found some very respectable bucket mouths feeding on menhaden in some of the deeper bends in the river.  The bite was slow at first and the full moon combined with bluebird skies (high pressure) moved the bait fish into deeper water.  We started the morning at 54 degrees air temperature, and as the day warmed up we found a pattern that worked.  Our success can as we started fishing with 4-inch DOA Shad Tails on Daiichi Copperhead Hooks casting them cross current and letting them drift into the deeper bends.  This bite should continue through April and is best during low light periods.  Be sure ti check our the Gallery for more photos from this week.
