Summertime fishing is here!

Snook fishing has been the best bet in the Banana River and port Canaveral for the month of July. In between cold water upwellings tarpon, kingfish, and sharks have been the ticket for beach fishing. Scattered tripletail are still holding on the buoy line, but not in the numbers earlier in the year. The fishing in the No motor zone in the northern banana river lagoon has been exceptional. Schools of redfish anywhere from 15 inches to over 40 have been moving around in less than two feet of water on healthy grass flats. Mixed with the redfish are gator trout up to 30 inches, snook and a few tarpon. These fish are even willing to take a topwater plug when presented correctly.  The no motor zone kayak fishing is your best bet for an inshore slam this time of year.
