  2. 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……………….

  3. My days off consisted of a 3 day noreaster which only got me four 7 ft sandtigers. Not what I wanted lol. 35 mph northeast winds made for brutal fishing

  9. All is well here in East Central Florida after Hurricane Irma, the water is high, but is pretty clear following the big east wind pushed in ocean water to the Indian River backcountry and Mosquito Lagoon, the fall mullet run is going on with lots of bait fish schools, inshore game fish moving in on their migration towards the south, Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, Ladyfish, Tarpon in addition to our resident Seatrout, Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, Snook, and more. Fun fishing charters continue, both before and now after the storm, just a couple days before Irma’s arrival, was out on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon with regular client Vic from Orlando on his annual September trip with me, hunting Redfish, poling the grass flats, and catching some Seatrout on live baits off the edges on drop offs, Family friend Angel caught a 25” Red along a scenic old Florida palm tree lined shoreline………………. Vic was quite happy catching Redfish this morning also……………… Son Mikey caught the best Trout of the morning……………… New clients from Indiana and The Villages in Florida came out a few days after the hurricane past through, we started out in the backwaters, light tackle free line fishing, catching a little slower than would be usual with the flood level water and all after the storm, but still catching a bunch of Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and Snappers, by late morning we switched tactics to the flats hunting Redfish catching a few spot tails, Denise got a nice Red with an extra spot…………………… Always some surprise catches in the back country, this one a 5.5 lb. Sheepshead caught by Larry, usually a winter catch, this one a summer Sheepy………………..

  10. Good luck Dave!! Ocean city tournament in 2 weeks can't wait!
  11. Sorry - I had to create a new thread because the original thread was having issues. Please repost.
  12. They are starting to show up just not in any big numbers yet. I've been out trying and will be in the red drum tournament starting Thursday 😁
  13. I just got a text from someone who just had a big drum in the wash and the line broke. OUCH!
  14. They don't usually bother me, even if they are biting. I have noticed over the past few months they have been getting much bigger and I am feeling the bite more. Those things and Bull sharks are going to take over the world! Gotta love evolution.
  15. Has anyone been fishing the surf lately? Those Stripers on steroids (Red Drum) should be here any day!
  16. September is upon us and most of us know it's the beginning of the fall season of fishing. In my opinion the best time of year to surf fish our local waters. Red drum should be arriving soon, shark starting to leave, mullet should soon be on the move bringing in lots of fish to the surf, flounder starting to move offshore. But with September fishing comes the peak of Hurricane season. Makes things difficult to get out at times. For those interested, the 16th annual Red Drum Tournament is coming up around the 20th. 18 or so people entered so far, if you need more info look up keepers of the beach website,, for additional info. Cut off date to enter is the September 8th and last day entry is usually permitted at the AMSA building next to Eagles Nest Golf course off Rt. 611. Post your reports let us know how you do. I'll be in the tournament hope to see you all out there.
  17. Those darn mosquitos! I'll be buying a few Maxi Deets as well.
  18. Yup, that's a pretty cool video. Sharks will always be awesome to me.
  19. Man, that is awesome! Great boat! (Or vehicle)
