November is Fishing Month

November's Inshore Fishing Is Special

The Mosquito Lagoon & Sebastian Inlet Showing Their Colors

I've never considered myself a pompano expert by any means, but this year's run of these tasty little beach runners have dominated parts of the inshore and nearshore waters of Brevard and Indian River Counties. 
Sandfleas and "goofy jigs" are a favorite to use when looking for these delicacies from the the salty waters of the Indian River and Beaches.  I've had several days were double-digit numbers have been the norm and then, well other days I've felt like I have a long way to go to be a pompano expert.

Everyone likes a good fight when it's on the end of a fishing rod. The ladyfish have been a favorite for those wanting to tussle with an anxious and fighter that's often called the "Poor Man's Tarpon".  Jumping is their specialty and there's always a smile when you bring one into the boat for a photo.  Ladyfish are often used for cut bait for other gamefish and redfish prefer ladyfish chunks above all else.

Don't count on the snook every November, but if warm weather and the fall mullet run to continue, you'll find plenty of lineside action on the lagoon, in Port Canaveral and Sebastian Inlet.  Snook are an inshore favorite and are great eating too.  The four-inch slot limit is demanding, but the fish is a worthy opponent indeed.

Sea Trout and Redish are staging into their inshore holes and grassflat areas of the Mosquito Lagoon north of Cocoa Beach and east of Orlando, Florida. Take advantage of the fall and winter months for these gamefish.

Red Dawn on the Mosquito Lagoon

Early mornings have been the trick to getting redfish on the shallow water grass flats.  Tailing schools of all sizes have been making their appearances almost anywhere you stop and concentrate.

Most anglers practice catch and release but some choose to keep a couple for the dinner table.  

The key to summertime fishing in Florida is go early and be the first one on the spot.


Both artificial and natural bait are productive but generally the bigger fish like natural baits as the seem more educated.

Spring Snook at Sebastian

Spring and Early Summer Snook Bite

Inshore and Inlet fishing for Sebastian and Indian River Snook is about as good as it gets when the tides and winds cooperate.  You can expect a mixed bag of redfish, gator trout and some mighty nice sized snook both in the inshore waters of the Indian River Lagoon and the tidal areas inside Sebastian Inlet.

Fishing Forecast

December - 2017 Fishing Forecast

The month of Christmas welcomes in the winter months and ushers in some of the best fishing on the Banana River Lagoon. Colder temperatures will make fishing better as it concentrates the fish into winter holes where they find cooler stable waters to sit out the fronts in. After each cold front you'll find fish adjacent to the deeper holes on the flats where they'll be laid up sunning and feeding on what ever comes their way. Most of December is great fishing on the lagoon with the exception of the Christmas holidays when it get crowded as vacationers come home and have time off to go for a winter-time fish before going back north and back to work. Savvy anglers will fish before and after the Christmas Holidays.
