This week has been a much better week than last week for fishing along the near coastal waters. The winds switched around and started coming out of the north and north west allowing us to get out on the beach and fish the mullet run once again.
This week’s near-coastal bite picked back up considerably compared to last weeks for captain Justin and I here at Fineline Fishing Charters. Flounder were the main edible species that we started catching inside of the pier and near structures outside of the Ports basins.
Snook, redfish, flounder, and tarpon are all possible catches along the near-coastal waters outside of Port Canaveral right now. Catching any combination of three or more of them is considered a “slam.”
The snook have been on fire at the inlets and along the beaches on our recent trips. The best bite happened in the days preceding hurricane Idalia. The fall mullet run has started and this has the snook feeding like crazy in the areas mentioned.
It’s another spectacular August for us here at Fineline Fishing charters. Tarpon action has resumed to the excellent levels that we saw last August. This is not typical for our portion of the coast, but for the last two consecutive years we’ve had the right conditions to hold these fish for extended periods in the late summertime, and the action has been fantastic.
