Fishing Reports, Latest Detailed Saltwater Fishing Reports

Fishing reports for saltwater anglers submitted by sportsmen that know their fishing. We receive detailed saltwater and freshwater fishing reports from average anglers, charter boat Captains, and experienced fishing guides. We pass these reports on to you as soon as we receive them so you can rest assured that your fishing infirmation is up-to-date and current. We know a fishing report of what an angler caught yesterday may not help you catch the same species of fish today because fish move, the bite changes, and water conditions can change dramatically. But a good detailed fishing report can give you a general idea of where the fish are biting and what lures or tackle they might be hitting.

We currently receive reports and forecasts for most saltwater cities that would include well known localities or "fishing holes" that you here about all the time. We receive Chesapeake Bay fishing reports for Maryland and Virginia, North Carolina fishing reports in the Outer Banks which includes Cape Hatteras Island, Ocracoke, Atlantic and Topsail Beach NC and that's just a small sample as we have reports from Florida's Fort Pierce to Alask'a Kenai Peninsula. So check back daily for your regions up-to-date report and remember if your region isn't posted please post your own fishing report for your home town.

 

Fishing reports for TX NC SC MD VA NJ, Chesapeake Bay fishing reports The most recent saltwater fishing reports are shown first. These are the latest fishing reports for the all categories list. We carry deep sea and saltwater sport fishing reports for all inshore and offshore coastal regions. If you do not see a report for your region it just means we don't have any reporters for that area which also means you would be the first so please feel free to post a report for your fishing region.

Fishing Report:   It\'s been awhile since I\'ve posted so I figured now would be a good time since the winds blowing and I\'m not fishing. Last trip I fished was Saterday, 4-12, the day before the front came through. The fishing was awesome! I had one guy come down that was eager to hammer on some yellow fins, and that we did! We had his limit of yellow fins in the boat, released two yellow fins and caught a few blacks to go along with them all in 2 1/2 hours of fishing! We headed in early with a full box of fish and one wore out fella! Fishing\'s great give me a call or check out the web site to book your trip now!

The fishing is the most consistent I\'ve seen it this year, now is a great time to book a trip! Contact me for trip booking and special offers today!

Fishing Report:   Fishing in Fort Lauderdale is on the upswing, as it usually is this time of year. April is a kind of starting point where our springtime fishing increases the number of fish and species we catch. Those winter months are usually Sailfish season and even though those up north had extreme winter conditions, we down here in the south experienced and unusually mild winter. With the water never reaching its lowest temperature, the fish had no reason to migrate. But they will, and soon!
We’ve seen this before, most recently just a few years ago. April came after a slow billfish season and in mid-April, we were having some of the best billfish fishing we had seen in a few years. Sailfish were migrating both directions at the same time. But it’s not just about billfish, there’s more.
We’ve already seen increases in King Mackerel, Bonito and Tuna. Mahi-Mahi have also been around though not abundant yet, that is yet to come. And with the Kings and Bonitos around? Here come the sharks as well. April is the time of year we catch most of our biggest sharks as they breed and feed through our waters. I should mention that almost ALL sharks we encounter are protected and released. Only the short finned Mako shark is kept and they are very rare to catch.
With the abundance of fish on the troll, we haven’t been Snapper fishing much but April is a good time for that as well. We’ll also be looking forward to grouper season opening back up May 1st.

Fishing Report:   Travis booked us for a half a day fishing in Ft. Lauderdale aboard Marlin My Darlin and the focus was on making it fun for his two boys Will and Parker. Will is 9 and his little brother Parker comes in @ 5 years old. Lots of junior anglers the last couple of weeks with Spring Break.
Captain Kopper at the helm today and that’s a good match as he enjoys junior sized anglers and really applies all the tricks he has gleaned out of fishing out front here for over 35 years to bend those rods. Mother Nature gave us quite a nice day today. Sunny and mild, not too hot due a slight onshore breeze to take the edge off the heat that comes with a full sun here in South Florida. Current running slowly to the north and clean water as Travis and the boys cleared the inlet on the way to the reefs. Bonito and Mackeral today to go along with that nice Amberjack in the photo, the largest fish on the charter. That Jack took a live bait that was fished right on the bottom at a shipwreck in just over 200 feet of water. Spin rod and 20 pound line, “Reef Donkeys” always a good powerful fight, especially when the anglers are young.
Tight lines

Fishing Report:   Fishing Fort Lauderdale on Happy Day Today with Capt. Zsak

Mr. Fuel and son, along with Mr. O’Shen and son, Todd, from Michigan chartered the Happy Day Today along with the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The two sons and friends were down in Fort Lauderdale on college brakes, enjoying the weather and attractions. Winds were out of the south, southeast at 12 mph, seas running 3-4 ft., blue skies, temperatures in the high 80’s.

Of course, the only thing young college fellows want is to tangle with a Shark, so after leaving the dock at Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale, FL, 20 minutes later we were in 350 ft. of water off of the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, FL in our Shark grounds. I put out one kite with two live Goggle Eyes from the kite and our Shark baits consisted of a bottom, midrange and surface baits. Our first strike was an 8 lb. Mahi Mahi off the kite.

As the boys were sipping their beers and waiting for the dorsal fin to break the surface, the bottom bait rod bent over. We knew it was a Shark but the question was which type? One of the boys jumped into the fighting chair to do battle; thirty-five minutes later a Dusky Shark appeared by the side of the boat, as Mark, our mate, grabbed the leader; pictures were taken and the Shark was released to fight again. We set up again and waited and waited and waited – with no time left, it was time to bring in the lines. With two

Fishing Report:   Spring is a great time for backcountry fishing here in the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon Florida. Seatrout is the main target species while fishing the creeks and drop offs here in the “old channel” at Edgewater, Oak Hill, and New Smyrna Beach. The water temperature has warmed to the 70’ mark now in mid April, so the baitfish have begun to return to the area signaling the return to warm water patterns, mullet and glass minnows the main spring baitfish species for the backwaters. Along with Seatrout we are having fast fun light tackle action with lots of Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and always more species also on my backcountry charters. Live shrimp can be the most productive bait for this mixed bag type of catching, but Allison here visiting from Atlanta and her husband did a fun charter with me and caught this quality Seatrout on a shad tail jig .........

Regular clients Bobbi and Newt from South Carolina did 3 afternoon charters with me while here on their Central Florida vacation, catching all the different species that my backwaters have to offer, Newt caught and released the best Trout of the trip on a Gulp shrimp jig.......

Fishing Report:   We had the pleasure of having the Elliott family aboard the Marlin My Darlin for two ½ day Ft. Lauderdale fishing trips this week. These folks weren’t experienced locals heading out for their umpteenth time. This was a first time offshore trip for them and something they had always wanted to experience. I spoke with Mrs. E several times in the days leading up to the charter and on that first day.
A decent day waited for us offshore the first morning, but not a perfect one. A south wind had a chop on the ocean and while very fishable (as local anglers say) there was a bounce to it. Nice clean water again on the reefs and a partly cloudy sky. Just less than a knot of north current in 120 feet of water. Good fishing conditions.
Our second charter with the Elliotts had an essentially sunny sky and the wind had dropped out a bit, but still we were able to launch our kites later in the charter after trolling back and forth across the reef line and over and around a couple of wrecks. Water again clean but a bit bluer and once again the north running current. Close to a Postcard Perfect day. Good fishing and good fun for the Elliotts on their trips. Three Sails, Kings, Bonito, and Tuna. Almost all action was inside of 300 feet of water depth with the best action inside 150 feet.

Fishing Report:   Monday morning, 3/31, it was a hard call on whether to fish offshore or inshore for the Frantz family--Mike and Sue, daughter Kim, and grandson Kevin. After many days of wind and high seas, predictions were for calmer conditions, with two-to three foot seas, but winds were still blowing pretty strong. The family had already fished one trip in the backwaters with me a few weeks ago and wanted to experience some gulf fishing. Another consideration was the low tide conditions in the bay. So we decided on the near-shore reefs. Even there, at three miles and six miles off the beach, conditions were sloppy in the early hours, and fishing was tough. It was the first time I had seen so many sail-cats at the reefs, perhaps because of the influx of fresh water with all the recent rain. The group caught and released several of those, along with some grunts, mangrove snapper shorts, and sheepshead to 12 inches.

Tuesday, 4/1, seas were calmer than they had been in a good while, and I got out 28 miles that April Fools’ Day with Ron Musick, Eddie Alfonso, and friend Wayne, along with Wayne’s son, Ryan. We had steady action all day, and the group caught a big yellowtail snapper at 17 inches, a 13-inch mangrove snapper, three keeper lane snapper, twenty porgies to 14 inches, and a 22-inch Spanish mackerel, all on shrimp. We could have caught more yellowtails, had it not been for the greedy goliath grouper that invaded our fishing hole! We used a blue runner for bait to catch

Fishing Report:   4-10-14 PM Trip
We left the Marina with John H and his son John D Sweet from Cary, NC. Now, on the AM trip before we left to come back the bite had just shut down. But, knowing the fish were there earlier that morning and seeing that by the time I got back to the area the tide would have made a change, I headed back to the same area.
To say that the fish were biting would be a discredit to the evening bite. It was nothing short of amazing!!! John was the only one fishing as his dad was taking pictures and videoing the event. John said he would send me the video. I was going to do some video myself, but I didn\'t have time. John would actually drop to the bottom, count to three and crank up for the most part two Black Bass at a time and this went on for several hours. Again, I truly do believe the PRO-CURE Squid Gel was the triggering factor for the evening bite. The more I used it the more they bit and we were actually having small schools of Bass follow the others all the way to the top trying to get at the baits with the Gel on them!!! I\'m telling you, this PRO-CURE BAIT SCENTS WORKS!!!!!!
John caught all he could stand to catch and an hour early into the trip said he couldn\'t catch any more he was give out. So, with sore arms and their limit of nice black Bass in the box we headed to South Harbour Marina to get the fished cleaned and then get the boat cleaned for two 1/2 day trips tomorrow. Got a call from a friend this evening telling me there was

Fishing Report:   Fun Ft. Lauderdale fishing trip today with Todd and his three boys. Todd and the three sons Chase, a 10 year old, Connor at 8, and Blake rounding out the crew @ 7 were onboard by 8 Am and we headed offshore.
Really nice day today with a good amount of sun and sea conditions starting out at 2 to 3 feet and then decreasing to about two feet by 10 AM. Slight north current and the water was clear and clean in 100 feet.
1st mate Brian set the first line twenty minutes after leaving the dock in 90 feet of water and we were fishing. Quick bite on the center rigger for Connor, first fish honors, and the catch was a Bonito A.K.A. Little Tunny. We worked the reef line (120 feet) out to 300 feet and captured more Bonito, three fat fully grown ones, along with some smaller ones. Full grown and slightly smaller was O.K. today with the kids aboard.
We worked the edge and then I heard of a Hammerhead Shark sighted in 140 feet of water to the south. There was interest (the boys of course) in a shark so we headed due south to the area of the sighting of the Shark, a Hammerhead, swimming slowly to the south into that north current. I worked that area for quite a while hoping to see and possibly bait the shark, but no luck there. Visibility was good and that is why I pursued him as he would be very visible on the surface swimming south in the full sun, but I couldn’t find him despite moving further up current and repeatedly searching the area, and he

Fishing Report:   Most fishing trips that have family and friends involve the hope of catching some fish to eat. Dave, his daughter Betsy or Boo as he called her and the rest of the group were looking to barbecue something later that day. Most on board had done some fishing here and as we talked trying to decide on a plan of action, I had mentioned live bait. There have been a few Sailfish around and most the decent Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi) we’ve been catching had been on livies… A Sail would be cool so we ordered a ½ dozen live baits.
Our trip out was uneventful as it was a fairly calm day with just enough wind for the kites. Only a slight chop on the water and clear skies was the forecast. Absolutely perfect! We began trolling but the response from the fish was poor on this and just a few small Tuna were caught. Always fun kidding those big, strong boys as they land a 3 pound Tuna…
So we opted to try the kites, we had actually trolled waiting for a little more wind to come up as it usually does in the afternoons here. As had been predicted, a decent Dolphin made an appearance, was landed and put in the box. Dinner will be served…
With the kites back up and loaded, our next bite was Betsy’s turn, everyone but Dave had caught a fish. And here comes Mr. Sailfish! Textbook bite and the game was on with Boo hearing everyone tell her how to fight this Sail, her first.
There is one great thing about women anglers, they listen and do what they’re told. They don’t try to
