Short Titusville Fishing Report

Titusville - Saltwater Fishing Report

Short Titusville Fishing Report

Thank you for reading this short Titusville Fishing Report. Still not a great deal to report, unfortunately. Lots of rain and lightning this week!

Took a short stroll down memory lane this week. Jeff Weakley sent me a Florida Sportsman, November 1987. In that issue was the first article I ever had published.

I keep a basket of magazines in the bathroom because the laptop is not very convenient. Picked out an old Tide magazine, November-December 1997. Son Maxx was the cover boy.

Monday- Launched the kayak in the Mosquito Lagoon armed with a six-weight. Went looking for redfish. The water was high and dirty and such fish as there were, were hard to see. I had one primo shot at a fish cruising along the shoreline and did not make the cast. Poocher!

Wednesday- Launched the kayak in the Indian River Lagoon armed with a six-weight and a spin rod. Found a few baby tarpon rolling. Tossed the chartreuse sparkle three-inch shad a few times and jumped one maybe seven, eight pounds. Got it close before it threw the hook.

Tried the fly rod with a black bunny leech. Threw it a few times and hooked another maybe five pounds.

I turned around and there was a squall line about a mile away, coming fast. I raced it back to my car, not coming close to beating it. No lightning, though.

As another bit of life, spent quite a bit of time watching concerts on youtube this week- Howling Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, Memphis Slim, Muddy Waters, Nina Simone, Little Milton, BB King, Savoy Brown, Robin Trower, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Dizzy Gillespie, Arturo Sandoval- probably made my tinnitus 10 percent worse. It was all great. The heck with the tinnitus!

"The solution to any problem- work, love, money, whatever- is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be." - John Gierach

Life is great and I love my work!

Every day is a blessing. Don't waste it- Go Fishing!
