Mayport Basin Fishing Report 06.09.08

It looks like summer is finally here, afternoon thunder showers and temps in the 90's. Water temps are in the high 70's.The Kingbuster tournament was held this weekend and the big boats were roaring along the beach and, later in the day, crying at the fuel docks. I actually caught a few kings and some huge spanish a couple of days ago off Atlantic Beach. I don't king fish too often. Finding pogies is a hit or miss operation. Be prepared to jig up bait with sabiki rigs. Some nice size reds are...

Wrightsville Beach Fishing Report 06.03.08

Hi Folks, Spanish mackerel fishing is as hot as it gets. Undoubtedly the best spanish fishing in years is happening now. Planers with clarkspoons, bird rigs with clarkspoons and casting with jigs....all are catching nice spanish along the beach.Catching a limit is predictable, but use good sense and conserve. Inshore: The flounder bite is doing well although the fish are particular about the tide and it seems bait too. Best fishing has been on the incoming tide and the beginning of the falling...

Lake Erie (Oregon) Fishing Report 05.29.08

Well I have to tell you that the Lake Erie walleye fishing is really starting to heat up in the West Sister Island area.Fished on Saturday morning with Eyecatcher, Cornbread, Tuck, Steve, and a few others and didn't waste anytime getting down to business. After a 10 mile ride out, we stopped and started casting 3/4 oz. weapons, with #4 Colorado blades. Within minutes, I heard Eyecatcher yell "Fish on" and the "it was on." Cornbread didn't hesitate to show that he was up for...

Atlantic Ocean (FL) Fishing Report 05.27.08

Since my last report, it's been nothing but WOW fishing. Offshore the sailfish, kingfish, and bonito have kept many anglers busy. Throw in an excellent run of blackfin tuna just for good measure and the offshore angler could hardly ask for anything better. Move back inshore and the tarpon fishing has been outstanding with many many fish over the 100 pound mark. Gary Benivegna, his son, Matthew, and long time friend Rick Kapouch had a day they will long remember. We loaded the livewell with pil...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 5/17/08byCapt. Butch Rickey The wind was again not our friend this week. I lost two of my four days to the wind. I met my good friend Dr. John Hitt at his dock Tuesday morning at 0600 hrs. after we canceled Monday for wind. We had two days scheduled, and gambled on Tuesday being a better day. And, as far as the wind was concerned it was. As we rode down the river toward Picnic Island for bait, I asked John what he would like to target. John reminded m...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 5/24/08byCapt. Butch Rickey Late season cold fronts and poor tides were the dominating factors this week. My week began on Wednesday with my first trip with Daniel and Megan Stahl, of League City, Texas. This was our first trip. It was also the best tide I'd have to fish this week. Our forecast was for southwest winds gusting to 25, and it was already howling by the time we left the dock. On the flats at Picnic Island I had to back up the PowerPole wi...

Atlantic Ocean (FL) Fishing Report 05.15.08

Sailfish, kingfish, a few dolphin, bonito, and plenty of tarpon have given us steady action. The weather has run the gamut from no wind to as high as 19 knots. North current and blue water accounts for the good offshore action. The windy conditions stirred the water just enough so that the tarpon dropped their guard a little and are feeding pretty good both during the daylight hours and after dark. Lindsay Glazer and her friends Matt Rosen and Fernando Amuchastegy picked one of the more windy...

Niangua River Fishing Report 05.13.08

Below the Bennett Springs public access on the open river you can't go wrong with a colorful spoon lure. I have found (from years of practice, trial, and error) that the Kastmaster brands work really well, and pink seems to work the most consistantly... The idea is to cast the lure out perpendicular to your self in the stream and keep the line tight and the lure just off of the bottom (which is hard to do without catching your fair share of rocks)I catch and release mainly, but I have pulled...

Inshore/nearshore report Jacksonville area waters The water has warmed to 70-72 degrees now and fishing has picked up.All we need is for the wind to give us a break. Lots of jacks have moved in so the blues,which are still here, finally have some competition for your expensive baits. Large ladyfish and spanish mackerel are fairly common catches, too. I'm catching smaller spanish trolling and the larger ones on live bait when targeting other species such as trout. All these fish are great fly r...

Wrightsville Beach Fishing Report 05.08.08

Hi Folks, It has been an interesting week with various degrees of good and bad. The bad came on weather days that were much less than optimum and the good came on those rare light and variable wind days that seem to be farther and farther apart. Yesterday was absolutely the prettiest day thus far this year. Unfortunately, the rest of the week and weekend does not look very good...high winds and rainy. Now here's my report: Inshore: Fishing has been good one day and slow to stopped the next. Th...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 5/03/08byCapt. Butch Rickey This was an abbreviated work week, and a very tough one. Beside having a lot of wind to deal with again for a good part of the week, the fish have just been absolutely not interested in eating. The worst is that I, nor anyone I've talked to, has a good idea why! My week began on Wednesday with Emmett Lawler, his son, Brad, and lovely daughter-in-law Amanda, of Franklin, Tennessee. After the good fishing of the previous week...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 4/26/08byCapt. Butch Rickey It was a pretty good week of fishing, but as the tides grew weaker, so did the fishing. I managed to get in three out of four trips. First up on Monday was a trip with Bob White, of right here in Ft. Myers. It was a reschedule of a trip we canceled based on the weather forecast calling for big wind, which ultimately didn't materialize until late in that day. That happened again this week on Wednesday. This was my first trip...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 4/19/08byCapt. Butch Rickey Again this week the winds and cold from the front that passed over the last weekend kept me off the water until Thursday. My old friend Dr. John Hitt, of UCF, and I left his dock at 0630 hrs. with the air temperature in the high 40's, and soon saw the water temperature was bouncing around 61 to 62! The forecast was still for wind gusting 20 or better from the northeast. None of which makes for good fishing in southwest Flor...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 4/12/08byCapt. Butch Rickey It was supposed to be a week of five trips beginning on Sunday. But, I canceled Sunday's trip with Bob White to reschedule later based upon the best prevailing information from NOAA and NWS. The rain never materialized, and although the wind did really kick later in the morning, it turned out to be a much nicer day than forecasted. Oh, well. You have to do what you think is right. Monday, I had my first trip with Pete Miche...

Wrightsville Reservoir Fishing Report 04.10.08

Hi Folks, Everybody knows March went out like a lion and as yet it hasn't stopped roaring very much. High winds have hampered fishing effort and fish catching. The good news is it is still early and it looks like we are about to have a pretty good stretch of weather. Now here's my report: Inshore: Puppy drum and a few small flounder are biting on the low tide around the inlets, ICW and creeks. I haven't seen a black drum as yet, but they will surely show up soon....maybe on today's trip...

Southeast Florida Canals Fishing Report 04.08.08

This is a spot that is all brackish and silt so never fished. A recent vehicle breakdown led me to walk and investigate. First day I got 20 Mangrove Snapper and one 10-=13lb Redfish in 1 hour. saw 1000,'s of snook there but would not bite live bait. Next day and I got a 42" Snook at 34lb's with a tiny spinner bait with small treble hooks. Everyday they are there along with 5 manatees and I throw 4 different baits until I find what they want. They are all smalll or giant as I saw one that...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 4/05/08byCapt. Butch Rickey I took the first two days of this week off to take care of some personal business, and scheduled trips the rest of the week. But, as usual! The weather got in the way. My first trip was on Wednesday, and it was my first trip with Dave Irwin, who is a teacher and football coach over in Lake Placid, Florida. Dave is a rabid fisherman, and has spent a lot of time fishing these waters during his life. Like me, he is a native Fl...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 3/29/08byCapt. Butch Rickey Winter, spring. Winter, spring! Winter, spring. Winter, summer! I don't even know where to start with this report. The weather has been so goofy and the tides so poor, and the result is that it has been hard to catch anything this week. If it weren't for lots of great customers, this would have been a truly trying week. Before I get to the report for this week, I have some unfinished business from the last week. I failed to...

Atlantic Ocean (FL) Fishing Report 04.02.08

Since my last report, we've seen the north current off Miami continue to be strong and then die off to little or no current. While we had to good north current, the fishing was very good to outstanding. When the current died, the action has been had to come by and persistence has paid off with getting the fish to strike. Sailfish are available to be caught almost everyday. Finding them on no current days amounts to covering plenty of ground and getting lucky. Cobia are making their appearance...

Columbia River Fishing Report 04.02.08

Fishing: The spring chinook fishery got off to a fast start March 16, with boat anglers averaging a fish for every 5.5 rods on the lower Columbia River between the Hayden Island west power lines and Bonneville Dam. The turnout was good, too. In all, 368 boats and 170 bank anglers were counted on both sides of the river during an aerial survey opening day. The highest concentration of boats - 110 - was near the Portland Airport, although 35 boats were counted between the Interstate 5 Bridge and...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 3/22/08byCapt. Butch Rickey It was another week of windy days. I did manage to fish the last two days, after some juggling. After moving Jeff Howe and his father, Gary, of Polk City, Iowa, from Wednesday to Thursday to avoid the big wind in front of the approaching cold front, we still had weather and wind to deal with Thursday morning. The front had slowed down and not yet passed, and there was a long line of squalls due in around 9 AM. We had no mor...

FLORIDA FISHING REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING 3/15/08byCapt. Butch Rickey I got to run four out of five trips I had on the books this week. The first part of the week we saw big winds out of the north after the big front that passed on Saturday. Dr. John Hitt and I decided it was best to stay in port on Sunday, as the winds blew, and the fish were surely lockjawed. So, the week began on Monday with Joe Moyle and his crew, who had braved the elements the previous Friday as the front blew in. Monda...

Atlantic Ocean (FL) Fishing Report 03.19.08

Spring is in the air. Sailfishing continues to be outstanding in the 100 - 130 foot range. Kingfish are starting to make their appearance after a very disappointing winter and are being found in 100 - 115 feet. Dolphin are coming through in the 200 - 400 foot range. Finally the blackfin tuna in various sizes have made a showing in depths of 140 - 400 feet. As for tarpon, they are in an inconsistent mode as I write this report. One evening they are easy to find and the next they are hiding. Man...

Hi everyone, Spring is just around the corner and the fishing is set up to come with it. Make sure all your gear is in order and ready to go. Here's what is happening now: Inshore: Large schools of specks are around but a bit sluggish when it comes to biting. A few more degrees of water temperature and they will be chomping. Red drum are patrolling the beaches and you can sight cast to them on a sunny day when the water is clear. Nearshore: Some bottom fishing and the ever present dogfish...

NE Florida inshore/nearshore report March, the transition month, is here and we'll be steadily moving from our winter patterns into spring as the water warms. In fact, a customer caught a jack crevalle and a spanish mackerel a couple days ago in St. Augustine, which is a sure sign fish are moving north. There continue to be large numbers of bluefish throughout our area. Sometimes they can be a nuisance when you are targeting other species. Sheephead are biting very well right now at area jetti...
