Florida’s Adventure Coast Fishing Reports

March 2019 Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Spring is finally here on Florida’s Adventure Coast. Game fish are on the hunt for food and ready to eat what you present. Live white bait is the best bait of choice right now. Red fish are schooled up on the outer points and islands. Fish a moving tide for them. Most of the reds … Continue reading March 2019 Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

February 2019 Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Old man winter is here on Florida’s Adventure Coast and the fishing is great. Fish we target this time of year are speckled sea trout, red fish and sheepshead. Sea trout are holding in very shallow water – only one to two feet deep – on hard limestone bottom. Fish these guys on an incoming, and … Continue reading February 2019 Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

January Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Old man winter is here in Florida. Even though our temperatures are up and down the fish are in their winter patterns. Trout are holding in shallow water and keeping to inside creeks. Soft plastic flukes and little Jon’s rugged weedless or a light 1/8 ounce jig head are great for trout. Red fish are … Continue reading January Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

December Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Gag grouper fishing is as HOT as you will find it. In December we get the BIG BOYS coming in to the shallow rocks just off our coast. There are a few different ways to target shallow water grouper; you can bait them up with dead or live bait, or – my favorite way – … Continue reading December Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

November Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

November is a transition month for a lot of our game fish and fishing is very good. Speckled trout are moving from the four-to-six-foot depth range to the shallow grass flats in one-to-three feet of water. Fish the tide; moving water is what will deliver a good trout bite. Target potholes and kelp grass on … Continue reading November Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

October Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Fall is here, and the nights are cooling down, making the Gulf waters cooler as well. This cool down is what pushes the game fish toward a feeding frenzy. We have an abundant amount of bait all over our waters, from 2-3 feet to depths over 12 feet. Also, stone crab traps are going out … Continue reading October Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

August Fishing & Scalloping on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Fishing is good if you start early. With daytime heating, the best fishing is early morning with a good moving tide. I like to fish the morning incoming tide along the mangroves and oyster bars for red fish and snook. Use live pin fish or green backs rigged under a cork or free-lined with a … Continue reading August Fishing & Scalloping on Florida’s Adventure Coast

July Fishing & Scalloping on Florida’s Adventure Coast

July is here and that means one thing: the start of scallop season on Florida’s Adventure Coast. Scalloping is a fun, exciting time for family and friends. We all enjoy the beautiful crystal clear Gulf waters and snorkeling for some tasty bay scallops. We scallop dive in four to seven feet of water, depending on the … Continue reading July Fishing & Scalloping on Florida’s Adventure Coast

June Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Inshore fishing action is good. Start early with a good incoming or high outgoing tide for red fish action. With all the fresh water pumping out from recent rains, the reds are found more in the cleaner water like the outside points and islands. Look for mullet schools as a key sign that red fish … Continue reading June Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

May Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

May is TARPON TIME on Florida’s Adventure Coast. The migrating tarpon are here and will remain through mid-July. Tarpon can be found in water from two to eight feet deep anywhere inside of the last markers of the channels. Tarpon fishing is a patient man’s game as it may take countless hours and days to … Continue reading May Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

April Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

April fishing is on fire! We have a wide variety of game fish to target right now. Cobia are here prowling the flats and nearshore wrecks. When targeting cobia on the flats, look for sting rays in two to six foot depth. Cobia like to hang around the rays and feed on small bait fish. … Continue reading April Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

March Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Spring is in the air and the fish are getting very active. With the Gulf waters heating up, we will soon see the migration of Spanish mackerel and cobia showing up. Bait pods are here already and the game fish are ready to eat. Redfish are roaming the outside points, islands and creek mouths. Target them … Continue reading March Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

February Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Sheepshead are the big talk right now among Adventure Coast anglers. Our sheepshead fishing is very good right now on our nearshore and offshore rock piles. “Sheepies” are fun to target. It’s a lot like grouper fishing; anchor the boat up-current of the rocks, casting a distance away. What I like to do is chum … Continue reading February Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

January Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Happy New Year to all. Old Man Winter is here and the inshore game fish are holding in their winter areas. Red fish can be found in the creeks and back bays, as well as near warm springs. Live select shrimp rigged with a 1/0 or 2/0 circle hook and light 20-pound leader is all … Continue reading January Fishing on Florida’s Adventure Coast

September Fishing & Scalloping on Florida’s Adventure Coast

Inshore fishing action is great. We are catching a lot of red fish and snook right now. Red fish are schooling up along the outer points and islands. Look for mullet schools; the reds are mixed in with them. Red fish are holding in schools of 10 to 20 per school and will be more … Continue reading September Fishing & Scalloping on Florida’s Adventure Coast
