Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report for July 16th – 18th

Offshore fishing report July 16th: Trolling bite was a little slow but we can always rely on the barracudas for a fun fight. These guys come 5 feet out of the water trying to throw the hook. Very acrobatic and they like to fight all the way to the boat.   Offshore fishing report July 18th: The King and Spanish Mackerel’s are back. Trolling over structure and ledges will get them fired up with live bait or bright colored spoons. Using wire to the spoon will prevent break offs from their razor sharp teeth. Not much beats a bowl of

Ponce Inlet Offshore Fishing Report for July 9th – 11th

Offshore fishing report July 9th: Tons of weeds moved closer to shore which brought the pelagic bite into the 80 to 150 foot of water. Although it’s a chore to clear all the baits as you troll through the miles and miles of sargassum it usually yields good results. Naked ballyhoo got the most bites.   Offshore fishing report July11th: We ran a little different trip this time. Stayed close to shore and fished for bonita on light spinning rods. Using vertical speed jigs we cast into the school of bonita and it didn’t take long to get a bite.

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 Offshore Fishing Report: June 16th-24th

It’s prime time fishing offshore out of Ponce Inlet. The bottom fishing has been busy, Amber Jacks are finally showing up regularly. Most fun way to catch them is with a speed jig on a spinning reel. Inshore you’ll find a healthy population of mutton and red eye snapper with the occasional trigger fish mixed in. If you like fishing live bait the grouper bite has been strong once you get away from all those pesky snapper. Capt. Nick

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
