Fishing Report:   Roller Coaster Fishing!

I am beginning to feel like Iím on a roller coaster with the fishing. Good one day not the next. The ups and downs are most closely related to finding bait and the weather. The nearshore scene has gone from gobs of tarpon to none and from gobs of Kingfish to none. Thatís the way it seems to be going.

The river bite has also been up and down but almost always with a few fish including one slam of a snook, redfish, and a spotted sea trout.

About a week ago my good friend Capt. Chris Myers gave me a clinic on tarpon. He jumped 11 and got one to the boat for a photo op. I jumped one but got him to the boat so the only thing I could really brag on was my percentage of 100 %. The bait of the day was the DOA Baitbuster. The photo below is 1 second after I pulled my tarpon from the water for a quick picture and he decide to give one more wiggle and jumped free from my hands.

The kingfish depended on the bait. Those who found pogies found kings and many anglers where limiting out. On the day I took my grandson looking for his first kingfish the pogies were not to be found. The previous day they were as easy as pie. With no live bait we trolled frozen Spanish sardines and still managed to catch him his first king. When you are trolling dead bait you can pick up the speed a little and they can be productive too.

One trip in the river produced a slam of snook, redfish, and sea trout. Carol and Lloyd were visiting the Space Coast from Kansas and took a little time out for a fishing excursion. As sometimes happens with the lucky ladies, Carol caught the slam while Lloyd was left only with a mangrove snapper. The slam came on live shrimp suspended below a popping cork.

Another trip to the Banana River found Ann and her seventeen year old son Matt on Pathfinder. Matt is an avid fisherman and was already talking about doing some surf fishing as soon as our trip was over. Ann was actually the first to hook up with a jumping ladyfish and then a slot-sized trout. Matt wasnít too far behind with a 20 inch trout and later he caught the biggest fish of the day in a 5 pound sail cat. By the end of the day the Ann and Matt from New Jersey had boated over 30 fish that include seven different species.

As always, you can visit my website at to view pictures of the fish we catch in the Cocoa Beach area. Thatís what itís all about. Good fishiní.
