Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report

Just because red snapper is out of harvest season doesn’t mean you can’t catch them. They are great fighters, great for pictures and when vented correctly they have a high percent ¬†recovery rate. We have caught these guys anywhere from 3 miles from shore all the way to over 200′ of water. We’ve caught them on just about any lure or bait. We’ve even caught them on a fly rod. Now if we would just have a longer season than 5 days would be even better.¬†

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report

Great weekend of fishing out of Ponce. The water clarity and temperature are ideal for both bottom fishing as well as trolling.  King mackerel and  bonitas are plenty at almost any depth.  However if you want dinner there’s nothing better than bottom fishing.  We have been doing great on trigger fish, red eye snapper, mangrove snapper and groupers. The deeper you are the better you’ll do, just have enough weight on your sinkers to hold bottom. Capt. Nick

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report by Capt. Nick

Ponce Inlet fishing has been excellent this season. We’ve had a large variety of species biting on the bottom. We caught record size trigger fish, mangrove snapper, red eyes and of course red snapper. Trolling has been a hit and miss but when they do bite its non stop. Mahi are still around and king mackerel have been consistent. Throw in a barracuda and bonita to the mix and your day has become full bending rods.  Capt. Nick

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report

First week of September is always good for some kingfish action. Water is still warm, calm and the clarity is decent for bottom fishing. Don’t have to go out far to find decent fish. Within 15 miles from the inlet you can troll for bonita, king and Spanish mackerel with the occasional barracuda and even sometimes you get lucky and a wahoo or dolphin are passing through.   Capt.

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report: June 9th-17th

Mahi are still hanging around between 150 – 350 foot range. Water is getting warm, using a planer with a spoon or a diver lure will get them to come up to investigate your spread. If you don’t see weeds floating and want to blind troll try running a dredge with pink or blue lures. Lets hope they stick around for a few more weeks. Capt. Nick

Ponce Inlet Fishing Report: May 5th-13th

The offshore bite has officially begun. Mahi are showing up in the 150 to 300 foot range. Look for color change and troll the temperature break at the edge. You will also find black fin tuna and sailfish mixed in. Sea witch rigged ballyhoo and green spoons seem to get the most bites. Amber jacks are starting to migrate over structure. Speed jigs and live pin fish work best. Also, Grouper season opened up May 1st.   Capt. Nick www.searokcharters.com
