Mid August Fishing Report
Date: August 19, 2020
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 Daytona Beach, Ponce Inlet, New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon area are entering their peak seasons.
Big bull redfish are 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. Catching as many as 10 trophy sized fish or more per trip has been the recent trend and will continue in the foreseeable future.
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”!
