Its that time of year again and the fishing is nothing short of outstanding!
The night bite in North Brevard has been on fire for the last few weeks, both North Indian River and South Mosquito Lagoon have been producing a lot of quality fish. The weather is changing and the fish are on the move, becoming very active throughout the night. Big schools of redfish, with some black drum mixed in, have been surrounding and feeding on large schools of bait, pushing them against islands and into bays. Target the outside of the bait schools with live, dead, cut, soft plastics, topwater… a wide variety of baits are working. Juvenile to slot-sized snook and trout can be found under dock lights that hold bait and have good current flow. I have been offering them Grandslam Baits shrimp tails and eels with a 1/16 oz. twistlock hook and they have been very receptive. Juve tarpon are rolling in backwater creeks chasing the straggler mullet that fall behind their pod.
In short, fishing is phenomenal right now. Just go.
