Indian River Lagoon Coast Fishing Report June 25, 2015

This Week's Fishing Report

The heat is on along the Indian River Lagoon coast of Florida and the summer doldrums have arrived, so be sure to get an early start if you can and hydrate and cover up as much as possible while out on the water.

On the inshore flats this past week, the conditions are as pretty as they get at first light, and my anglers have yielded some quality catches. The bite has not been on fire, but it has been consistent. The water levels have been up in the north IRL making it possible to fish the very edge of the shoreline where the snook have been hanging out. For us on the northern reaches of the Indian River Lagoon, snook fishing can be challenging as we are on the northern range of their habitat, but due to the warm winters we have experienced these past few years, our snook bite has become more consistent. The snook and small tarpon have been holding along the shoreline, so push in close and see what you can find.

As mentioned earlier in this report, the summer doldrums have arrived and the near-shore bite is firing up. The pogies are starting to show up along the beach and the waters are loaded with bay anchovies (glass minnows). With all of this bait in the water, the predators are showing up in good numbers. This past week, anglers aboard Three Quarter Time jumped a number of 100 pound plus tarpon as well as the typical jacks, sharks and bonito. When speaking about bonito, there is tons of schooling fish busting glass minnows, so it is time for the ultimate fly fishing experience, catching these speedsters, or should I say knuckle busters, on fly.

Lastly, as the full moon approaches, it is time for the spawning kingfish to move into the shallow water along the beach, so break out your stinger rigs and get you some smoker kings and silver kings

As always, if you have questions on need more information, please contact me.

Good luck and good fishing,
