Our Monthly Recap!


We had another great week here at Fineline Fishing Charters. Captain Justin and I have been on the water multiple days and have had some really good redfish catches while fishing in the Banana River lagoon and near-shore waters around Cocoa Beach. As we’ve mentioned in our last few fishing reports, this time of year can be absolutely fantastic for big bull redfish outside of Port Canaveral near Cocoa Beach. When we are able to find a good sized school of these giants you can expect fast-paced, drag-screaming action with double or even triple hookups at times.  Unlike most of the lagoon fish at this time of the year the majority of these “bull” redfish are over 40-inches in length.  We expect this action to continue for at least another 3 to 4-weeks based on our current water temperatures and bait that is holding in this area.

Banana River Lagoon Action

Water quality in most of the middle and northern portions of the Banana River Lagoon is pretty green right now.  Algae blooms caused by nitrogen (lawn fertilizers) introduced by storm water drains all summer long have fueled these blooms.  It is making for very tough sight fishing in most of this area, but cut baits are working surprisingly well and we are catching multiple slot sized and smaller redfish in this portion of the lagoon on most days.  The bite in the northern portion of the Indian River seems to be very “scent” oriented as well.  Cut baits are working better than live baits or lures in this section of the lagoon near Titusville as well.

New Species along the Space Coast

As we transition into our early winter period the waters along the space coast will drop into the middle and lower 70 degree range.  When this happens Captain Justin and I will be able to add to the redfish, trout, and snook, with some new species that we haven’t been able to catch over the summer months.  Pompano, whiting, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, flounder, and tripletail and others will begin to show up in better numbers in the waters between Titusville and Sebastian Inlet.  Most of these “new” species are pretty good to eat so if your into that sort of thing you are definitely in luck!
