  1. Last week
  2. 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……….

  4. Hello, I’ve been fishing out of a pelican castaway 116 that I bought for $150. Now I want to upgrade to a kayak with more space and something I can stand up in. Max price I’ll go is $600. What is a good stable fishing kayak around that price? I like the ascend T10. Thanks ! I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

  5. 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
  6. 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………….

  7. 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……………..

  8. 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……………….

  15. 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………………..

  16. Good luck Dave!! Ocean city tournament in 2 weeks can't wait!
  17. Sorry - I had to create a new thread because the original thread was having issues. Please repost.
  18. 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 😁
  19. I just got a text from someone who just had a big drum in the wash and the line broke. OUCH!
  20. 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.
  21. Has anyone been fishing the surf lately? Those Stripers on steroids (Red Drum) should be here any day!
