  2. Summer is knocking at the door here on the North Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon Florida, water temps approaching 80’F, mullet and baitfish schools here for the summer, big variety of different saltwater fish species to be caught here in the backwaters. Through the summer we will be catching Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish and always other surprise fish too. Summer patterns can be mostly scattered fish in the warm water with fish in ambush point locations, creek mouths and points with a good tidal current flow, and shadowing baitfish schools, and bait and crabs riding the tide along moving water channels. Fun surface striking fish are great for summer sight fishing activity, with open water fish like Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish and even Tarpon, but Trout and Redfish will also come to the top. Summer baits include live shrimp, pigfish, pinfish, and finger mullet, for artificials , early morning top waters, 3” shad tail jigs and twitch baits. Morning trips are the summer norm, early feeding fish and a little cooler than the heat of mid day. Ed from Astor, Florida out with a couple friends on a recent backcountry trip caught all the usual different species as well as this over slot 28” Redfish on a live shrimp and light tackle…………….. Repeat client Mike from Buffalo NY caught a good back water Black Drum …………………… Spotted Seatrout are one of our main summer target species, usually hungry on summer mornings taking live baits and artificial lures, average size “Specks” are schooling fish, with larger Seatrout usually more solitary fish, we catch them on the edge of drop offs as well as shallow water flats near bait fish schools. Kacie with one of the Trout she caught on her trip………………… Kristin and Dennis from Alaska came fly fishing with me, landing Trout, Jack Crevalle, and Ladyfish on 6 weight fly tackle with my “Savedow Special” back water flies………………… This year has been good here for Black Drum, catching good numbers during winter and spring, along the bottom on channel edges and back country holes, they mainly eat shrimp and crabs, Dan from Lakeland Florida caught a nice one……….. On a fun trip with first time solo client Thomas from Texas we caught Snook, Reds, Jacks and more, Tom snapped a pic of me with a Red I caught on a 3” white shad tail jig off the edge of a flooded oyster bar……………….. Jack Crevalle are a staple of our fun rod bending backcountry catching, they are not picky, eat most any bait or lure, sizes usually 1 to 5 lbs in the back waters……………………...

  4. Hello, What are fishing opportunities? How are they set? What is the basis for the fishing opportunities? I went through many resources like Covoco Pricing but did not find much about this. I will be greatful if you point me in the right direction. Thank you.
  5. Hello, I've had 2 fish for quite a while now and they get along great except at dinner time. I try to feed them food that is a different color so I can easily track who is eating the food. Does anybody else have this problem: one of my fish eats all the food and doesn't let the other one get any! I end up having to feed the greedy one 4-5 times before the hungry one gets one. I don't want either of them to die or anything...overfeeding is just as bad as underfeeding. Suggestions? Do I just have a gluttonous fish? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References:- http://forum.idreams.pl/viewtopic.php?f=137&t=4953 Online marketing ads Thanks
  6. Hello, I have created this topic just to see how big a hole a guy can dig for himself and if its big enough perhaps Ronnie & John can fill it full of fish. Jonathon you claim to speak for the "specimen" anglers of the Main Loch and yet in your writings on the other topic you have spoken to only TWO who have concerns? Second point, and I quote your last line from your last piece Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  7. Hello, Opened up iquarium this morning to find my fish had died. The reason given: because I hadn't fed it for a week. This is ridiculous and untrue as I had fed it every day - I use iQuarium as my "screensaver" whilst charging my iphone at work and the first thing I always do is feed "Fishy".Can't believe I've got to start all over again due to a "bug". Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References:- http://forum.idreams.pl/viewtopic.php?f=137&t=2470 Motion Graphics Intro Video Thanks
  8. Hello, I have a new 2009 Revo, and went to plug in my fishfinder (Eagle 250) and it would not turn on. My 2ND TIME USING IT!! I checked the obvious stuff, battery power and correct connections. However, there were 2 things i noticed that might be a problem.The dealer install cut a little opening for wires to go out from the battery inside the watertight container, and it looks like it was too tight, and a tiny bit of the red wire is exposed.One of the metal plug-in needles in the fish-finder was bent. I didn't notice this the 1st time, but it worked. I bent it back and plugged/unplugged the wires a few times. It does not appear to be weakened or on the verge of breaking off. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References:- https://www.hobie.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=12499&start=0 Medical marketing video Thanks
  9. Water temperatures are finally back to normal for April after a back and forth winter / spring pattern with cold January, warm February, and back to cold March. Fish patterns were confused with an early start to the coastal migrations, then the cold March halted the spring movements, to continue again during April. Good news so far on water quality in my area, clear to normal water conditions with continuing help by our close location to Ponce Inlet and daily tidal influx of sea water. As well as schooling near coastal fish moving in to the Intracoastal Waterway being the Indian River here at New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater, and the north Mosquito Lagoon. We had a good Black Drum season all through the winter and spring with back water fish of 5 lbs down to little ones, they were along the channels and sloughs as well in in holes. Shrimp being my usual daily natural bait, which the Drum are happy to eat. On my mixed bag variety backcountry trips we also usually catch many different species on every trip, which can include Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Drum, Sheepshead, Whiting, Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and always some surprise catches. Young Parker was the winner of big fish on a trip with his family and friends.....................… Repeat client Dr Leonard from Canada did a couple fly fishing trips with me, catching a bunch of Trout and Ladyfish, including a 23" Speckled Trout on a "Savedow Special" fly which I tie, on a sink tip fly line for fishing the drop offs and channels in the back country...................... For a break, tossing a few shrimp on light tackle spin, in between fly casting, Dr. L caught some of the other usual species too, Jacks, Blues and a nice Snook out of some Mangrove Roots...............… First time client Cameron from Tennessee out on an afternoon trip also caught a good Black Drum…………………. A group of friends from Salt Lake City came out on a spring time afternoon trip and Gabby got big fish with a nice Black Drum…………….. Another repeat client, Gerry from Kentucky came with his family again this year, out on a fun backcountry trip, including some good Seatrout…………….. Caleb was all smiles with his Black Drum on light tackle after a good battle……………. Spring is always full of many good Jack Crevalle for rod bending fun, Greyson out again with family and friends on another trip with me…………………..

  10. Got the itch,weather needs to break and lines need to be in the water.
  11. March 2018 has brought winter back to East Central Florida, nights in the 40’s and upper 30’s most of the month, water temperatures dropping back to 58’ to 60’ after a warm February had water temp up to 68’ to 72’, so a confused pattern of a spring like February then back to a March winter pattern has made for interesting but good fishing and catching here at Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River Backcountry. Early spring migration had already started with schooling Bluefish, Pompano, Jack Crevalle and oversize Ladyfish coming north to our area with the early warming water temps, Black Drum and Seatrout becoming more widespread through the backcountry after spending the winter in the deep holes and channels, and small schools of Redfish in the shallows sunning on the chilly days. With the cold water back again I have been fishing a mix of my winter and spring patterns and fishing holes, dropping live shrimp and 3” swim tail jigs into the holes also trying the spring pattern channels and drop offs. This has been a great season for Black Drum here in the back waters, young Logan from Orlando with the best Drum on a trip with his dad and friends, with several caught this day…………….. Rusty from Indianapolis was out with me on a 2 boat Mosquito Lagoon charter with my friend Capt Tony and his boat, we got on a school of Redfish at a shallow flat and sight fished a couple Reds……………….. We were catching a bunch of smaller “runt” Redfish on the edge of a Lagoon drop off when Rusty hooked a good fish being a nice Black Drum………………. Spring is known for Jack Crevalle here in the backcountry after spending the winter in south Florida, they move back north as the water warms, and can be here in big schools making for lots of fun catch and release action on these hard pulling game fish, Griffin with a good one…………… Shovelnose Hammerhead Sharks are also on the spring menu, we usually catch quite a few through March and April, long time client from Canada Al with a fun Shark…………….. Paige from Orlando with another good size drag pulling Jack Crevalle………………. With the cold water holding on late this year, Sheepshead have been an every trip catch as they are a winter fish liking the chilly water, young Andrew from Houston with a fun one……………….

  12. As the busy early spring charter season has begun, I am doing many Mosquito Lagoon guided back country trips, water temperatures are rising from winter mid 50’ F range to the upper 60’ to low 70’s F’s now, starting the spring migration of game and bait fish coming back north after their spending the winter down south, Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Pompano and others are returning, adding to the many different species we catch here in the coastal saltwater backcountry, joining our resident fish which stay here year round including Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Black Drum, Sheepshead and Snapper. With the clear water from winter still around, the sight fishing for Redfish on the flats is a fun challenging hunt to find the schools and get a bait or lure in position for a strike. Back water mixed bag fishing is prime in spring, recent trips have been lots of fun with good catching, most trips with multiple mini slams of Seatrout, Redfish, and Snooklets, quite a few Black Drum, and catching the first several Jack Crevalle and Ladyfish of the warming season. First time clients from Miami and Seattle out last week had a great fun time, catching lots of different back water species on our light spinning tackle, Pedro got the biggest a nice Black Drum……………. Not to be outdone Doug shows off his best Black Drum of the many Drum landed this morning………………. Pedro also got a very nice Spotted Seatrout on a free line live shrimp……………. Young Lucas and family from Canada had a fun time out on a backcountry catching trip, including a nice Redfish………. Jody from New York caught her first ever Redfish among all the other saltwater species landed………… Fun Friendly Light Tackle Fishing Adventures Closest Saltwater Fishing to Orlando at New Smyrna Beach Calm Water Indian River Backcountry CHILDREN ALWAYS WELCOME – FAIR PRICES CALL OR TEXT ME ANYTIME 386-689-3781 http://EdgewaterRiverGuide.com/orlando-fishing-guide Capt.

  13. Hi Folks, I found the two attached maps detailing offshore drilling zones as of February 2017 via www.api.org, which is a members consortium for companies seeking drilling access using an intermediate to the US government. Has anyone seen them? I looks like a great deal of offshore drilling was extended from Florida up to North Carolina and organizations are trying to get access waters up to New England. Appreciate if you've found more information on where the proposed platforms will be and any current ones. Also any guidance on where to find more information on the sites. Thank you
  14. Winter has arrived in East Central Florida, our first freezing temperatures after several warm winters in a row, water temperatures dropping in to the 40’s F, driving fish into the deep holes, and the shallow water schooling fish back on the flats to feel the sunshine during the day. More winter fish biting in the backwaters like Sheepshead and Bluefish, local resident species Redfish, Seatrout, and Black Drum bite all through the winter as they are more cold tolerant than sub tropical fish which are here also such as Snook and Tarpon which can be at risk when the water gets cold enough in shallower water spots were they cannot get to the bottom in deep enough water to avoid the colder surface temperatures. Schooling Redfish on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon is always a winter target, a fun sight fishing challenge, poling the boat to find the school, getting into position to be able to get baits to the fish. Canadian clients Claudia and Chris had a great backcountry trip with me , catching many different species dropping shrimp baits into the deeper holes, then after the sun was up enough we hit some flats finding a school of Redfish warming them selves in an oyster bar lined bay, they landed 5 Reds on our light spin tackle, Claudia did catch the largest one………………….. …………….but Chris caught more of them…………………… Repeat local client Rob from Orlando came on a back country trip again with a group of friends, fishing the holes and drop offs, catching Trout, Reds, Snook, Sheepshead, Snapper and Tim got the big one an 8 lb. Black Drum…………... I even got out a few times with some friends scouting and fishing, looking for new fishing spots to take clients on other days, we fish with artifical lures for search fishing moving along to see as much as possible on our hunt, even get to catch a few fish, had schooling Reds and Trout on a sun warmed flat on Mosquito Lagoon……………… Repeat client Steve from Canada came out with me with his friends catching a bunch of different species including the ever present backcountry Seatrout………………….. Another Redfish from another fun scouting trip, as late winter and spring arrives the guide business picks up with lots of charter trips so no need for scouting when out most days of the week with my fun clients………….

  15. Winter fishing is coming to central Florida, now still on the warm side with water temperatures in the upper 60’s, so a late fall pattern continues so far, Seatrout are widespread through the backcountry on Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River here in the New Smyrna Beach area. Still catching lots of different species with 10 to 15 varieties on most back water trips, in addition the Trout, we are landing Redfish, Snook, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, and more. Live shrimp still the best all around bait, as all the different species love them, as the water has been clearing with dropping water temps, sight fishing for flats Redfish with select size shrimp and live finger mullet are always a winter technique. With cooling water more Sheepshead and Drum come to the boat, this fall Pompano and Whiting have been in the backwaters here from their usual surf areas making for good light tackle fun on these species. Kelly caught a good Black Drum out of a deeper backcountry hole on a variety trip with lots of all the usual species also landed……………… Bill and Bruce here visiting from New Jersey out on a fun mixed bag backwaters trip, Bill with one of the better Seatrout caught……………… ……..and also several good Pompano landed on this mornings outing…………………. Repeat client Kevin from Savannah here for a Thanksgiving visit came out with his friends for a flats hunting trip for Redfish, landing just 3 Reds before a cold front arriving thunderstorm shortened our trip, Matt with one of the Reds……………. Sheepshead are a winter/spring staple here, Ken with a nice one from a recent trip………… The backcountry here has many different fun hard fighting game fish species which school in good numbers, including Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, and Ladyfish……………..

  16. Fall fishing patterns have arrived here in Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River at New Smyrna Beach, big schools of finger mullet cover the waters surface at first light with Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and more busting them with white water crashes, casting lures or bait in the mix for a fast hook up. The water level is still high but pretty clear in the backcountry, the first couple seasonal cold fronts arriving to East Central Florida this week, with north winds, night time temps in the 50’s, beginning the process of lowering our water temps as we move towards winter. Cool water patterns emerging in the backcountry like schools of Seatrout bunching up in holes and on drop off edges, also schools of small Redfish beginning to group together, and bigger lagoon Reds will start to school up as water temps drop. Catching here in the backcountry is always a variety of species, lately catches on my trips in addition to the fish already mentioned have included Snook, Snapper, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Flounder, Whiting and Pompano. As always we are also doing some flats fishing, hunting Reds and Trout on the grass flats of Mosquito Lagoon, regular local client Robert was along with me again recently, poling the shallows for sight fishing, always more of a fun but challenging type of fishing, this morning landing several Redfish …… First time client sisters Barbara and Eleanor came on a cool, windy afternoon backcountry charter, we fished holes protected from the breeze catching the usual different species, Barbara with the best fish of the trip a nice Snook…………… John from Nashville set up a trip for him and his friends when they visited the area recently, choosing mixed bag variety fishing for the lots of catching, the fish cooperated well with many different species, including a nice Flounder caught by Reed…………… …...Reed also got the best Trout of the many specks caught…………………. Repeat clients also from Tennessee out on another trip had multiple backcountry slams of smaller size Redfish, Snook, and Seatrout, along with lots of fun Jacks and Ladyfish, dad Randy also caught a couple nice size Black Drum………………. As the last few years have gone on, Snook have been a daily catch here again after the big freeze years back in the early 2010’s was very hard on our central Florida Snook population as Sean found out……………….
