October Fishing Report

Posted by Capt. Josh on September 24, 2020 at 5:45 PM

October fishing report I'm doing a little early just because I'm booked out on charters time is very limited for me. So here it goes October is grouper time we target these heavey hitters in shallow waters 7-12 feet and deep water 20-40 feet. The shallow water grouper fishing is what most people do with me just because we can chum them up on the surface with free lining live bait and using plugs ripping across the rocks. The Rapala FMAG 18 plugs are killer for gags in 15 feet and less. Live p...

Insane April Fishing Action

Posted by Capt. Josh on March 31, 2020 at 4:25 PM

April is a great month for inshore fishing along the Nature Coast of Florida. Big schools of red fish will be roaming the outer islands searching for bait fish to eat, look for hard bottom such as oysters, lime stone and rocks red fish love hard bottom. Live pilchards and pin fish are my go to baits for reds i like to fish the mid incoming tide and first hour or two of the outgoing tide. Snook will be holding in the same areas as red fish and the same baits are the way to go.

March Madness

Posted by Capt. Josh on March 6, 2020 at 11:40 PM

March is a very good moth for both inshore and offshore fishing. I will start inshore, Rredfish are roaming the outer points and islands look for mullet schools as they are a good key that red fish are close by. I like a mid incoming or high outgoing tide for targeting redfish, live pilchards or pinfish are my baits of choice. Snook are working there way out of the winter haunts to the oyster bars and points, look for deeper holes and a good current flow snook love to ambush there pray. Live ...

Mangrove snappers are chewing good on a 1/8-1/4...
