January 2016 Indian River Lagoon Coast Fishing Forecast

As we welcome the New Year, it is once again time to reflect back on the events and accomplishments of 2015, and to count our many blessings. We are truly blessed to live in Central Florida where angling and spending time on the water are year round endeavors. I am also very thankful for another great year of fishing with my clients and friends on the esteemed waters of the Indian River Lagoon estuary and our central Florida lakes and rivers. Thank you all for a year filled with adventure on the water, and many great memories.

The Confession of a Passionate Angler

Reflecting back on over six decade of fishing in Central Florida, I must confess I’ve been blessed by the countless passions driving my life.   Our passions propel us through life like the prop on a boat, pushing us faster and harder in the realization of our goals and accomplishments.  Like the distant shoreline and our anticipation of reaching our favorite fishy flat, passion drives our desires, excites us, quenches our thirst and sooths our souls.  Compelled by a love beyond explanation, the passions within can please us, or in some cases break our hearts. My passions in life are many, and as I get older and a little wiser, I’ve grown to realize my passions are often driver and shared by others who feel the same and care alike.

Fish Heaven

It’s a cold, post-frontal January morning in east Central Florida. While launching my skiff in predawn darkness, I can barely see the end of my trailer as a heavy fog bank has settled in.

Heavy fog of this nature is uncommon on the Saint John River basin, requiring a precise mixture of warm river water, cold winter air and dead-calm conditions to occur.

As the tropical storm seasons wanes on Florida’s east central coast, passing summer squalls and higher water levels have impacted the seasonal fishing conditions we traditionally experience in October. Combined with last week’s super moon and a steady northeasterly fetch, the lagoon water levels are the highest I’ve seen in years. These conditions are so intense this year the St Johns River was flowing in the wrong direction last week causing stalled out water levels above flood stage south of Lake George in the Aster area.

This Week’s Fishing Report

Complements of Mosquito Creek Outdoors, Apopka, FL

As I sit down to write this report, a quick review of this weekend’s weather reveals a monsoonal flow of moisture working its way into the Florida from the Gulf of Mexico. Starting tomorrow, (Friday) through Sunday, 8 to 10 inches of rain is predicted. Currently, the summertime doldrums exist producing excellent fishing conditions both inshore in the lagoons and offshore in the Atlantic, but it’s hard to predict how 8 inches of rain will affect the fishing, so all I can say is if you go fishing this weekend, be safe on the water and keep an eye on the radar.
