Captains Skylar’s Mad Beach Fishing Report – April 2022

Spring has kicked into high gear with March closing out with a final cooling spell and some windy days. However, the fishing was stellar with about 3 weeks now of consistent water temps. April-July spring and summer times bring some of the best fishing Tampa Bay has to offer. Our inshore species are feeding heavy… Continue Reading

Capt. Greg’s Space Coast Fishing Report – April 2022

Port Canaveral, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, and Orlando April is here and we are one month closer to June. I am starting to believe it will be June before we get calm seas.

Captains Skylar’s Mad Beach Fishing Report – March 2022

The first week of March has ranged from 70 to 76 degrees at times. There was lots of sunshine, bait, and a few negative tides. March is a transitional month; redfish and snook begin to make their way out of the backwaters and creeks heading for spawning grounds and bigger meals, in the bay and in the passes.   Continue Reading

Captain Travis – Tampa Bay Fishing Report – March 2022

Captain Travis – Tampa Bay Fishing Report – March 2022

Spring has Sprung! It’s time to get out on Tampa Bay and enjoy one of West Coast Florida’s best fisheries. Both inside and outside of the estuary, things are firing on all cylinders. For me, the inshore bite for Redfish and Snook has been as good as it gets, with the shallow water population all healthy & hungry. Continue Reading

Capt. Greg’s Space Coast Fishing Report – March 2022

Cobia is the fish on every locals mind and with fuel being so expensive and cobia fishing being close. These fish are going to get punished if they actually pop. You better be first to find them, because by the time you see it on social media, too many boats are on it and it’s over. Continue Reading

Jacinda Rose’s Nature Coast Inshore Fishing Report – February 2022

After taking some time off, I’ve finally been on the water and after those fish again! The past month has been treacherous when it comes to cold weather and chilly winds, but when I’ve been able to get out, the fishing has been no less than incredible.

Capt. Greg’s Space Coast Fishing Report – February 2022

Ughhh February! This is lining up to be one of those Februaries where cold fronts stack perfectly and keep everyone from venturing out past the shoal most of the month. If it was totally up to me, I wouldn’t venture more than a few hundred yards off the beach until we see a solid 3 days of calm seas in a row. Continue Reading
