Early June Orlando Fishing Report

Orlando - Saltwater Fishing Report

Early June Orlando Fishing Report

If there was any doubt summer has hit central Florida, this week dispelled it. The calendar claims summer won't be here for a couple weeks, but reality says it's here now. It's blazing hot, and this is the early June Orlando Fishing Report.

Still trying to sell that EZ Loader- Details at this link- www.spottedtail.com/sale-rebuilt-aluminum-ez-loader-trailer/

Friend and neighbor Karl Dienst somehow came upon a small, cherry, 1950s aluminum boat, a Blue Star perhaps? He got this idea that he should paint it to look like Chuck Yeager's WWII P-51 Mustang. He got the job done in time to launch the very spiffy-looking boat with his friend Paul Dachoff on, appropriately, Memorial Day. I'm sharing here a couple of the pictures they took.

I had gotten a report from a reliable source that the Banana River Lagoon was not dead, that the water had cleared somewhat, and the fish were biting. On Tuesday I went to check it out. In the cleanest place I found I could barely see my feet in knee-deep water. I saw a few small black drum and caught one on a black redfish worm, and got three small reds on the same fly, all sight fished in real shallow water. While that's certainly better than "everything is dead", it was not terribly encouraging.

Wednesday Tom Van Horn and I went out of Port Canaveral. We didn't find any bait, or any fish other than little tunny. We got ten or so tunny on Sting Silvers, and a single Spanish mackerel that apparently believed in integration. Good for it! We talked to a couple of other guides at the boat ramp who had a similar day.

Thursday I went kayaking on the Mosquito Lagoon. The weather was very hot and sunny, with a light breeze until the afternoon, when it started honkin out of the east. The few fish I saw were very spooky. I managed one redfish on a black bunny leech.

Friday George Allen and I went out of the Port on a tunny hunt. We found them about three miles off the beach and got several on Sting Silvers. I pulled out a seven weight fly pole and got one on a bouncer bucktail streamer.

So fishing was not spectacular this week, and that is the early June Orlando fishing report from Spotted Tail.

There's a very high probability that I will take a bye week next week- don't expect a report.

Life is great and I love my work!

Life is short- Go Fishing!
