Coastal Angler Brevard N Indian River Lagoon Forecast May 2016

Typically spring and fall are my favorite seasons for fishing my home waters near Titusville. Central Florida’s April, May & June time frame is normally characterized by great weather conditions. Cold weather is well behind us and our truly hot weather is in our future. Favorable weather patterns with near perfect water temperatures promote quickly growing baitfish and the predatory fish which rely on their abundance. Our water is currently cloudy like summer water; though not so cloudy that we can’t sight-fish many locations. High winds have stirred up some areas and help to clear others. Spend a little time looking for the clearest/cleanest waters if sight-fishing is important to you. In lieu of sight-fishing, simply covering lots of ground by blind casting is working for us. We’ve been having decent luck with Z-Man Minnowz swim baits in the three-inch length. Pearl White and Sexy Mullet have been out best color choices in the cloudy waters. Better still, the bite using cut mullet or ladyfish is quite active once locating a population of redfish. Use a 3/0 circle hook; tossing chunks of these oily and smelly morsels into clean sand spots should give fine results.
