Fall Bass Bite Is Looking Good

September 26, 2011

Recent rainfall, along with cooler temps, have the Largemouths biting. Over the past 3 weeks we’ve had a noticeable improvement in the numbers, as well as the size of Bass caught. Saturday, 9/24, we caught and released several “keeper” Largemouths, including a 5 1/2 and 7 pounder. Typically the best time of day to fish Central Florida’s Ocklawaha River is early in the morning, although anytime is a good time to go fishing. I expect the bite, as well as the size and number of fish, to improve as the days get shorter. We’re looking forward to another good spawn on […]

Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report

September 21, 2011

You can find nice speckled trout all over the flats, near almost any grassy bottom and along cuts and islands using Cajun Thunder corks, live shrimp or Gulp (root-beer color). If you use a live pinfish you’ll catch larger trout, maybe not as many, but more quality. I have heard to reports of cobia’s caught last week as well, around the markers, #7 thru #1. Redfish have been plentifull too, the water temp is slowly dropping, and that means either inshore or offshore the fish are gonna lite up. Till next time, tight lines and safe boating Capt. John blouse Hooked up […]

A Late Summer Steinhatchee Fishing Report

September 17, 2011

Greetings from Steinhatchee. It’s still summer here, folks are out trying to get one or two more bags of Scallop meat for the freezer before the extended season closes Sunday the 25th of September. This hot weather makes scalloping very refreshing and a great way to top off a box of fish. As the days are becoming shorter and we have some cooler(not as hot) days fish will begin to bite better, especially in shallow water. I have seen subtle changes already. Saturday, my party and I caught 10 nice Speckled Trout, including one over 20″s, and two over 18″s […]

Late Summer Months Remain The Toughest

September 6, 2011

Here in Central Florida we catch fish 12 months our of the year, although the late summer months remain to be the toughest to do so. As water temps soar into the 90’s, the window of opportunity keeps getting shorter. This equates to getting up very early to catch a 2 hour bite window for Redfish and Trout, or running 40 miles off shore to catch and release Grouper. On the other hand, if you are not picky about what you catch, and don’t mind being out in the heat (like most of our younger clients), then summertime fishing might […]
