N. Indian River Lagoon Fishing Report: August 2014

Most of you already know our local redfish population is fairly unique as these fish do not migrate to the ocean to spawn. Throughout the red drum’s entire range (Atlantic and Gulf) redfish typically leave the shallow lagoons and backwaters for the coastal ocean waters. Jul 30th, 2014

North IRL Fishing Report: July 2014

July’s heat came early this year with some days in the low 90 degree range during June’s first week. This translated into very warm waters in our region. Still, our waters in the North Indian River Lagoon remain, for the most part, clear. I’m hopeful, though not confident; the brown algae blooms of the past few summers may have run its course. While I know the brown algae isn’t completely gone from our lagoon system I’ve only seen a few isolated pockets of the dirty smelly crud so far this season. Jun 28th, 2014

While we do not yet know what May’s weather pattern will bring rest assured we will catch fish.May 1st, 2014
