Lower Keys Offshore Fishing Report: June 16th-24th

Fishing in the Key’s never disappoints especially offshore. With barely a south wind the seas were less than a foot all week. Fishing around weed patches brings all the schoolies to the party. Throw out a handful of cut bait and watch them come running. Using light tackle spinning rods the Mahi will keep everyone on the boat occupied for hours. Legal limit is 20′ to the fork 10 per person.

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.

Inshore Fishing Report: April 1st – April 8th

With consistent water temperatures on the rise the inshore fishing is gaining momentum. Although the water is still a bit murky it’s important to fish it while it’s moving. The desired species rely on sight to catch their dinner and the lure of choice should be one that makes noise and wakes up their sense of smell. Gulp Live with a spinner bait seems to do the trick. The forecast is calling for warmer temperatures, we just need some clearer water. Capt. Nick Searok Charters

Central Florida Manatee Airboat Tours

As professional guides and anglers it is our responsibility to promote and practice conservation. In the winter the manatee seek refuge in warmer waters of Florida’s natural springs. To see them from shore is one thing but to float up next to them in an airboat is another. Book your sight seeing tour while these sea cows are congregating in the crystal clear waters of central Florida.

Cedar Key Fishing Report: November 20th-26th

Cedar Key Fishing Report: November 20th-26th Fishing in unfamiliar territory is always intimidating due to the lack of knowledge of the area. With a little help from local fisherman and bait shops we managed to put together a decent weekend. Ran out in the Gulf between 14 and 22 miles at 40 foot of depth and looked for live bottom on our machine. The sea bass where literally everywhere. Every single drop we caught at least one. In the mix were short gag groupers, red groupers and mackerels. Groupers seemed to like cigar minnows and the bass loved the squid.

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report 11-5 to 11-12

Fishing report for 11-5 to 11-12.   Mother nature decided not to let us go offshore this week especially because it was the second weekend of snapper season which we haven’t had in 3 years. Word on the street is the NOAA is going to give us a make up weekend. That has yet to be announced, Lets hope for smooth seas and hungry fish. I recently did an interview with FOX 35 Orlando regarding artificial reefs and how it affects fishing. This week a tugboat will be sunk as part of the artificial reef.   View the story and

Ponce Inlet Fishing Report: Oct 26th – Nov 2nd

Ponce Inlet fishing report for October 26th to November 2nd Took the Costa del Mar Italian sunglasses frame manufacturing team fishing for some offshore action. We wanted to show them different species of fish available in Florida. Started the day with some bottom fishing at the Party Grounds. Much like last week the bottom fishing was non stop action. We caught trigger fish, red eyes, red snappers, sea bass and sharks. Needless to say they were exhausted from the constant reeling 1/2 way through the day. My mate and I decided to show them how trolling works.. Ran a couple

St. Augustine Fishing Report: Oct 15th – 21st

The water is still extremely dirty in the St. Augustine area and the water levels are at their highest in many years. The fishing is tough due to the lack of water clarity. For best results soaking live shrimp on the bottom will yield some redfish bites on the outgoing tide. The snook are hungry for live mullet if you can get them to see it. Try a popping cork with either live shrimp or live mullet with a 2 foot leader if you find cleaner water. Book your offshore or deep sea fishing trip with Searok Charters!
