March 2 Weekend Fishing Forecast

It wasn't that long ago, I was writing this report and the inshore waters were freezing.  Buddies of mine were talking dead or stunned fish South of Beach Blvd off the ICW.  Dead or stunned fish in the Lake in Queens Harbor neighborhood.  And I marked a river temp of 48 degrees on the surface, on a 20-25 knot morning.  We lasted only 2 hours out on the river in Mayport, that day.

February 23 Weekend Fishing Forecast

With Winter and the cold weather behind us here in the Northeast Florida region, expect the water temperatures to climb and the fishing to get red hot. The Redfish bite has been extremely good. Target creeks with deeper water adjacent to a flat, look for fish pushing in the shallow water and around oyster beds. Redfish are still running in schools, so the opportunity to boat several fish is a definite possibility.

January 26 Weekend Fishing Forecast

It may be a little cool…  but there are fish to catch!

The wind has really been hindering the offshore fishing the past couple of weeks.  We had a small window though, last week, where we were able to make it offshore.  We decided to take advantage of the great weather and stretch out to 60 miles.

December 1 Weekend Fishing Forecast

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  As the holiday season approaches, the temperatures are still dropping and the water is cooling down.  Fishing, this time of year, in the Northeast Florida area, is very good.  The Sheepshead bite has turned on in the region.  As the colder weather rolls in, the water temps will drop, and the bite will really turn on.

November 17 Weekend Fishing Forecast

The first weekend of Red snapper Season 2017 started out pretty rough regarding weather, and it ended worse on the second weekend with a nor'easter completely closing off the ocean due to high seas.  We were able to run the first 3 days Nov 3, 4, 5 but Sunday (5th) was very rough, causing us to cancel all afternoon trips.  Of the trips we did run, both boats limited out each trip with some red snapper nearing 20lbs.

September 29 Weekend Fishing Forecast

Thanks to Hurricane Irma's passing, not exactly what "land-lubbers" would call a wonderful thing but to local anglers it was just what we needed!  Yes, Tropical storms, Hurricanes the great "re-newer". After a hot summer, all the rain and wind is a giant FLUSH and Something Mother Nature does, with a pretty awesome outcome, for Anglers!

September 22 Weekend Fishing Forecast

With the mullet run in full swing, this weekend’s bite should be red hot! Flounder will be one of the target species to pursue and there are several different ways to catch them. When fishing the Intracoastal waterway grass line and creek mouths on the high outgoing tide, use live mullet on a fish finder rig or mud minnow on a jig head. Work the outside current edges of creek mouths and fish the grass lines slow and methodically for best results.

September 8th Weekend Fishing Forecast

This week we have seen a weather change, giving us signs that Fall is approaching. With the change of the season upon us we start looking to change channels with our fishing. Although there are still some kingfish around, the numbers are not what they were in previous weeks so we are starting to do more bottom fishing. Inside 25 miles red snapper are still in full force with only a few grouper around.
