Many charters have been calling me and asking if the fishing is any good this time of year. My answer is, the fishing is about as good as it gets right now. The only thing we are dealing with is the winds. When the weather allows and we can manage to get offshore the king fishing is great. Use your standard stinger rigs and frozen minnows. If you find live bait that’s great too.

Welcome to the Native Fly Charters fishing report for Oct./Nov. 2015. Water conditions remain murky except for a handful of areas which are clean enough for great sight fishing opportunities. With the warm temperatures still lingering around, the tarpon and occasional snook have been cruising around the flats along with redfish, sea trout, and black drum. Millions of bait »
Canaveral has finally been picking up. The pogies and mullet are in full swing and theres many species following the bait. We are still seeing some tarpon mixed in with snook, bull reds and plenty of sharks. You can find the mullet much closer to the beach and the pogies will be just offshore of that. Look for them flipping on the surface as well as the mudd balls.

What can we expect to see in September? That’s a really darn good question. If its anything like the last several months its basically unpredictable!
I have only been charter fishing out of Canaveral for about 10 years now and I still have so much to learn. This year has been completely odd/off to say the least. Lets start with bait. Pogies »
The month of April really felt like June with nice calm westerly winds in the morning and a easterly sea breeze in the afternoon. Seasonal fish seem to think the same, like Tarpon for instance. They have been showing up a little early this year in some areas in the back country where they don’t normally show until early Summer. These are the smaller fish ranging anywhere »
Hope everyone had fun cobia fishing last month. Continue to look around the 50/60 foot range for the rays and leatherbacks holding fish. Free swimmers will be abundant continuing through this month as well. If you find some type of color change, weed line or temp break, 70 degrees, in that depth your gold. Buck tails and live bait will do the trick. If they won’t fire on the buck tail »
Shark fishing has continued to provide some awesome action and excitement. We have seen a big influx of the offshore sandbar sharks lately. These species of shark are normally the annoying large sharks that are known to eat ½ your kingfish many times while offshore.
I’m not sure as to why there are so many so close to the beach. Possibly breeding? And when I say close to the beach, »
Fishing has continued to be as good as it gets! We have gotten so many phone calls lately where the customers ask, I know its winter and I’m sure fishing is slow, but can we go and do something? LOL I tell them it’s Florida not NY our winters are still warm and the water is the same. Obviously the weather is the only issue that we normally deal with more so now then during the summer. »
Shark fishing in Cocoa beach has been on fire lately. Talk about a lot of fun too. When it’s blowing 20+ as it has for days and days lately, your only chance to get out to do anything is sharkin. The winds are definitely a major factor. If its 20 from the east, no go. You gotta have some west to it.
Many ask, what direction does a west wind mean? When the wind blows FROM the west, this »
Happy New Year friends! I’d like to thank all of my customers, supporters, and readers for a fantastic year last year. I really appreciate everyone’s kind words about my photography, and the way I run my company. With that said, I plan on upgrading my camera equipment this year to give you even better images for future posts, publications, and “hero shots”. Ok, enough with »
