Santa is being very generous with the fishing lately, the fish are biting and the coolers are filling. Some of my customers might be having fish for Christmas dinner instead of turkey this year.
We've had some cold fronts come in which has chilled the water down a bit in the lagoon and the ocean but it hasn't stopped the fish from biting.
The lagoon is producing decent amounts of slot reds as well as some smaller snook fishing the mangrove shorelines and not to mention numerous amounts of spotted seatrout.
Sebastian Inlet has been pretty hot lately, the big reds are hanging around for the holidays and slot to over slot snook are being caught pretty consistently. Flounder season is open now and I've seen some decent size doormats and a bunch of medium size flounder being caught. Spanish macks and bluefish are also stacked up in and around the inlet.
Offshore has had a fabulous snapper bite this week. Some of the lane snapper we've caught are the biggest I've ever seen. There are also quite a few other species hanging around like big mangrove snapper, cobia and kingfish. I've talked to some other captains that have been catching mahi out around 150ft while trolling. We usually don't do many offshore trips during the winter due to the rough seas though.
There are a few days still open for December but January is wide open for bookings. Give us a call and let's get y'all hooked up. Due note: the rental house is booked up from February 1st to April 30th.
