Fishing Reports

Orlando area cold water temps make for a hot drum bite!

By January 12, 2018 No Comments

It’s that time of the year again gang.  The winter temperatures are cooling our lagoon waters down into the mid 50-degree range.  This has the redfish and black drum firing off on their feeding sprees during the mid day periods.  The Speckled trout are right there as well on some days.  We are using live shrimp and Saltwater Assassin 4-icnh shrimp cocktail lures with bang scent on them to get the reds and drum to bite.  The sight fishing on the flats of the Mosquito Lagoon located north of Cocoa Beach and south of Daytona Beach seems to be producing the best numbers of fish on days with a light to medium chop on the water surface.  When the winds blow harder the protected canals of the Indian and Banana River lagoons east of Orlando are the place to be.  Anglers can expect catches into the double range on these fish.  some days we get as many as 50 or 60, but the average day is 15 to 30 fish.  It’s a great time to get out and go “catching” here in the Orlando and Cocoa Beach area, so make sure to book your trip so that you don’t miss your chance to get out here and have some fun.


Until next time….Catch a memory!!!
