After Hurricane Irma - The water is cleaning up nicely after hurricane Irma decided to come up our coast. Lots of bait pushed back in causing other species to follow. There are lots of Spanish mackerel feeding on the schools of threadfins. Placing your baits into the sc more...

Dog Days of Summer - The dog days of summer are here! It's hot and so are the water temps which can slow the bite down a bit making some days real tough to catch a lot of fish. Fishing at night can be a great way to beat the heat and catch more fish. During the day fo more...

Redfish, Tarpon and Snook - The redfish bite has been good on high to outgoing tides. I love using pilchards and live shrimp on a float, running down the shadow line of the mangroves. Tarpon are still here. Look for the cleanest water to sight fish for these guys. Lighten more...

Be Stealthy for Snook - Late cold front dirtied up the water a bit but didn't drop the water temperature too much. The redfish bite has been consistent on the incoming to high tide and the high to outgoing. White bait and shrimp has been working under a cork along the sho more...

Bite Improving after Cold Front - Fishing after this last cold front, slowed the bite down a bit. The water temperatures dropped about 8 degrees, creating dirty water in some areas. As the water temps and clarity continues to get back to normal, look for the bite to increase! more...

Spring is Here! - Spring fishing is here and keeps getting better every week. Snook continue to push out of the rivers, creeks and back country winter areas as they get ready to move on to the beaches for their summer spawn. Their appetite has still been a little slo more...

Bait is Everywhere - Bait is everywhere water temperatures are around 70 degrees. Air temperatures are in the upper 70's - my favorite time of the year to fish. The trout bite has been good especially on the negative tides where it forces the fish to stack up into po more...

January Fishing Report - What unexpected weather we're having - warm, then cold, then warm and lots of wind. We're also seeing some dirty water which can change things in the fishing world. Using south winds to your advantage can work in you favor as it pushes more water i more...

December Fishing - Warm winter fishing it seems that some of our species still think it's fall with the water temps still around 70+ degrees. There's still shots at snook in the Gulf - though not as hungary as when they're spawning. On the beaches, you will still hav more...

Vary your Retrieve - Still some snook to get shots at before it gets too cold. Pinfish and shrimp have been my go to on outgoing tides! Also, letting the sun warm them up a little can increase the bite, especially on colder days! The redfish bite has been best on high more...
