Fishing Report for Ponce Inlet, FL
Mid August brings some of the hottest weather of the year to our hemisphere but it also brings some incredible fishing. Both inshore and nearshore fishing in the Ponce Inlet area is entering one of its peak seasons.
Big bull redfish will soon be arriving in large numbers and joining the resident fish for their fall run. These fish arrive hungry and ready to fight. The can provide anglers an incredible opportunity that is beyond the outstanding experience this area has to offer year round.
Snook fishing has been a lot of fun lately as well with some really big fish as large as 36-38” being landed.
Tarpon fishing is also good this time of year, but it’s either hero or zero type fishing that usually compliments fishing for the big redfish. If the food sources and conditions are right, the tarpon are quite catchable and usually put on an awesome spectacle. If things don’t line up, we can have attempts where we don’t see any fish. But as the saying goes “You don’t know if you don’t go”!
Another great summer week has passed with some really fun days with clients. We have had good weather with very little rain to push us off the water. The usual suspects were around and gave us a great bite.
Inshore around Ponce Inlet, we have had some great fishing for bull redfish, snook and a few tarpon. Inshore fishing is only getting better as we head into the fall months.
Nearshore off Ponce Inlet, we have had fun opportunities at tarpon, false albacore tuna, and a few big jack crevalle. We had an upwelling recently but that should end shortly and being better fishing with it.
Flats fishing in Mosquito Lagoon just to the south of Ponce Inlet for fly and spin clients has also be productive with fishable water clarity and some good fish activity. We are seeing some good sea grass growth as well this year.
