🎣 Sebastian Inlet District Week of August 31 🐟 T-minus 14 hours and Counting Until Snook Season Opens 🐟 "At 12:01 a.m., Snook season officially reopens in Atlantic waters and a lot of anglers have been counting down… Always remember to follow Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rules and regs. The Snook are around, Tommy tells us, and fishing overall has been GOOD! Snook will hit on a variety of baits and lures, but live shrimp is your best bet. Mullet that anglers can use for cut bait are starting to show up, and try bucktail and your top water lures. Mangrove Snapper are still around everywhere and in abundance. So try out the different fishing spots throughout the Park to target these guys. Live shrimp should do the trick. Red Drum are biting too, throughout the inlet. Try live shrimp or minnows, but they’ll hit on a variety of plugs and jigs too. Anglers have been bringing in Spanish Mackerel, mainly on the jetties. Little spoons, jigs and Gotcha lures will help you target the Spanish Mackerel. There have also been reports of a few nice Flounder every day. West of the bridge is your best bet so try fishing from the T-dock."
🎣 White's Tackle Fishing Report 9-2-2020 🐟 Stuart Florida "Surf fishing has been pretty good with the calmer conditions we’ve had for the last several days. Snook, Tarpon, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, and others have all made appearances, with bait ranging from glass minnows, greenies, to some early appearances of mullet. Clean water and no sea weed has made fishing very pleasant. Offshore, the best bet has been Mangrove Snapper in fairly close, 25′ of water or so, and live greenies or Pilchards have worked best. Snook fishing the inlets has been good with live bait, but the clear water and full moon have made artificials a tougher proposition. Inshore, Redfish are still prevalent in the shallows, and the morning trout bite remains good, but mid day is tough. Snook and baby Tarpon continue to patrol the mangroves and docks, taking soft plastics and suspending twitch baits. Beat the heat, get out early, and have fun!"
🎣 South Florida Weekly Fishing Report 🐟 Palm Beach Post Sept. 3, 2020 "Like areas to the north, the snook action is hot in Palm Beach County right now. Lots of slot fish were caught from the area inlets and bridges when the season kicked off just after midnight on Sept. 1. Though there are still snook at the inlets, they have really started moving farther back inshore. Look for the bridges closest to the inlets to produce the best bites this week. Swim baits and Flare Hawk Jigs fished during the outgoing tide have been working well. Live and artificial shrimp have also been getting the job done. There have also been a good numbers of tarpon feeding at the bridges at night, mostly around the incoming tide. Though they are hitting small, three-inch soft plastics like the HyperPlastics DartSpin or a LiveTarget SlowRoll Shiner, they are also eating freelined pilchards and sardines. Use a light fluorocarbon leader as tarpon can be tricky to fool. A few schools of nice-sized jack crevalle have been reported inshore this week around the Intracoastal Waterway and backwaters of West Palm Beach."
🎣 Daytona Beach Fishing Report 🐟 Flounder invading all waters as snook season opens Summer angling season coming to an end "Flounder is the primary catch right now. And this quick reminder -- snook season opened on Tuesday. In order to bring home a keeper (28 to 32 inches), you must get a $10.50 snook permit from the state. SURF, PIERS: Capt. Mike Vickers Jr. (hammockbaitandtackle.com) said the beaches are producing whiting, pompano, jacks and a good number of sharks. “The Hammock Beach (Flagler) surf to Marineland is producing a good red, drum, trout, and snook bite around the rocks,” he said. “These fish are best targeted at low tide and with river tackle so you can work around and tight along the rocks.”
🎣 St Augustine FISHING REPORT 🐟 Crustacean Nation's circling the wagons"The croaker bite up around Green Cove Springs is full on now as well. One gentleman brought in an ice chest with 52 in it. These were caught in the channel north of the Shands Bridge, but anywhere along that drop ought to work for you. The channel is easy to follow because of the marker buoys. The St. Augustine Inlet has been a good bet when the winds lay down. Spanish mackerel are making forays into and out of the inlet, along with flounder, jacks, bluefish, mangrove snapper and black drum."
🎣 Juno Bait Labor Day Weekend Fishing Outlook 🐟 (9/4-9/7/2020) "SURF/PIER- Little bit of east wind should help stir the surf up just a little bit and get the fish biting! It''s a bit early, but a east wind like this could (if it doesn't blow in too much seaweed) could trigger a little pompano bite. Snook are still along the beach, and after this full moon will be largely done spewing and ready to eat! Still no solid numbers yet, but expect to start seeing some mullet pods coming down the beach very soon. When the early mullet show...the tarpon and snook won't be far behind. The Juno Beach Pier has been producing a nice number of snook since the start of season. A live croaker or sand perch will be top bait for them. Snapper have also been biting pretty good at the pier as well. Live shrimp or chunks of sardine seem to be good bait choices for the snapper. Lots of blue runners around the pier for those looking for fast action."
🎣 Jacksonville Fishing Report 🐟 Labor Day plans should include flounder and reds "Here’s a little good news we all could use right now: We’ve got good weather and a hot bite on deck for the long weekend. There could be a window to run offshore if the current forecast holds, although the full moon could make for some ripping currents out there. If you can’t make it to deep water, consider a flounder or redfish trip in the river as opposed to hitting the nearshore reefs, which have been inconsistent as of late. A trip to the beach could be fun as well, thanks to a consistent presence of mullet in the surf. The wind between the beach and the break shouldn’t break 10 knots until we get back to work, although there should be a three-to-four foot groundswell rolling in the ocean past 20 nautical miles, according to the NOAA forecast. Saturday is the exception, with the forecast calling for three-foot swell at nine seconds."
🎣 September 4 fishing report from Byron Stout 🐟 "The fishin’s good, the breezy weather is getting better, and here comes a long weekend. It’s time to wet a line. September sometimes finds snook on the lethargic side, after spawning chores, but the bite remains good in the bays. In fact, the bite has been grand-slam good for some anglers who also are finding good numbers of redfish and juvenile tarpon, plus a few big trout."

🎣 Florida Fishing Reports 🐟 Week of 8-24-2020 😎👍
🎣 Sebastian Inlet District Week of August 24: Mangrove Snapper and Snook Season Countdown 🐟 "Mangrove Snapper are around to be had all day long. They’ll hit on live shrimp and you’ll find them throughout the inlet system so try your hand at fishing from different spots. There have been some Jacks and Spanish Mackerel coming over the rails on the jetties. Jacks will hit on live shrimp and spoons, and break out your little spoons, jigs and Gotcha lures to target the Spanish Mackerel. We hear it seems to be better on the outgoing tide and Tommy recommends trying earlier or later in the day as your best bet"
🎣 White's Tackle Fishing Report 8-24-2020 🐟 Stuart Florida "Offshore over the weekend the dolphin bite was good with a few fish around in 80 to 100ft with a few scattered sails mixed in live bait produced the best. The kingfish bite was steady on the reef with a few nice fish in the 30lb range with a few scattered wahoo around on the reef to. The next few days looks like the wind will stick around hopefully it will calm down near the end of the week. Inshore the redfish bite has been good the to the north live mullet and top waters have produced well. The snook bite has been good around the bridges and the inlet with jigs and live bait remember its catch and release till September 1st. It should be a good season. The trout bite has been steady with a few fish around the powerplant soft baits have produce well."
🎣 White's Tackle Fishing Report 8-26-2020 🐟 Stuart Florida "Conditions are improving, with diminishing winds and wave heights soon to make surf and offshore fishing more productive. Prior to the wind and waves offshore fishing was pretty solid, with good numbers of Kingfish caught in 80′ of water, with some Wahoo, Sailfish, and Dolphin thrown in as well, all in close at 80′ . The surf is still pretty dirty, with some sea weed thrown in for good measure, but calmer conditions to come should clean it up quickly. Before the winds there were good numbers of Snook, Tarpon, Spanish Mackerel, and other species were up and down the beaches, which should show up again, especially if the much anticipated mullet run begins. The inlets continue to produce Snook, but live bait has been more productive, and Mangrove Snapper have been caught on Pilchards in the Fort Pierce Inlet and nearby bridges as well. The Indian River is still fairly dirty overall, but decent numbers of Seatrout are being caught in some of the cleaner areas closer to the inlets on soft plastics, and Snook and baby Tarpon fishing in the early AM has still been productive as well."
🎣 Juno Bait Weekend Fishing Outlook 🐟 (8/28-8/30/2020) "SURF/PIER- Rougher weather earlier in the week had the Juno Beach Pier fishing fired up pretty good. With the conditions right snook were biting jigs and swimbaits in the surf good. The Spanish Mackerel have also been around in good numbers at the pier. Crappie Jigs and small swimming plugs are a great choice for the macs. Heard some good reports this week of croakers showing back up around the pier. Snook season is right around the corner...as usual the pier will be a good spot to start the search for a keeper. Scattered reports of some mullet schools north of Jupiter...won't be long now before we start seeing some good numbers of mullet on the beach. A few scattered pompano reports this week. A little early for the pompano, but a east wind always seems to push a few in."
🎣 Daytona Beach Fishing Report 🐟 Burly bull redfish take over inlet waters "Anglers are catching burly redfish around the inlets, plus legal-sized snook here and there. Snook season opens Monday. Surf Piers Gene Lytwyn at The Fishin’ Hole said surf fishing has picked up dramatically over the last week. “Surf and pier fishing has remained good with nice catches of whiting,” he said. “Tarpon, sharks and jacks have been seen chasing bait in the surf. A few sea trout, black drum and redfish have been caught on the piers.” Capt. Mike Vickers Jr. (hammockbaitandtackle.com) had this to add about fishing in Flagler. “The Flagler Beach Pier was hot until the wind and current picked up over the weekend,” he said. “The bite was whiting, pompano and black drum. As the winds die down this pattern should continue. The surf in Flagler County is still producing a strong whiting bite even with the wind, and the sharks do not mind it at all with several over 5-feet being caught. The surf rounds out with reds, drum, pompano, flounder, tarpon, and a few sheepshead around the rocks in the Hammock Beach area thru Marineland.”
🎣 FLORIDA TODAY fishing 🐟 Snook season opens Sept. 1 "The Space Coast should see good weather for all types of fishing. Snook are everywhere, but will probably hard to find Sept. 1 when harvest opens."
🎣 August 28 fishing report from Byron Stout 🐟 "Fishing activity has been pretty quiet, especially offshore, given the threat of hurricanes. But back bay anglers who have gone out have been coming home with some pretty big smiles. Redfish have been coming out of the woodwork, and snook are biting in double-digit numbers, and poundage. Looking for fish fry fixin’s? Think about rounding up some bluegill, or even a couple of peacock bass. It can’t get too hot for peacocks to bite. LAKE OKEECHOBEE: Roland Martin Marina and Resort manager Ramon Iglesias reports bass biting really well along Observation Shoal and on the “walls” outside Clewiston. The largemouths are hunkered inside the grass lines, where a Big EZ or Speed Worm in junebug or black-and-blue , or a white frog or Spook is the ticket early. A 6-inch stick worm like a Gambler Fat Ace or Senko in the same dark colors, including watermelon red, is the way to go the rest of the day. For those fish fry fixin’s, there’s the possibility of a limit of bluegills, or unlimited exotic cichlids for anglers working the Shoal with Beetlespins, crickets or red worms."
