Weekly fishing Forecast by LocalLinesCharters.com for May 18th, 2015

    Weekly fishing Forecast by Local Lines charters for May 18th, 2015..  Covering Merritt Island Refuge, The Lagoons, Cocoa Beach, Port Canaveral, and the Space Coast's offshore waters. Well; first I apologize!  I got so wrapped up in NoFill NoKill, my B-day, and non-stop charters.  That I neglected the Local Lines forecast last week.  For those that did hit the water; it was windy as you know.  The bite has been steady and solid fish are frequent visitors on my daily trips.  The topwater bite has been spectacular, and that’s always a good time.  Lots of stuff rolling on the conservation front; Interview’s, Articles, “Meetings” with port managers, and prepping for a rally/protest!  Please be aware of the port’s plan and find ways to help at this link No Fill No Kill.


This week’s forecast:   

In-shore   Get out those topwater plugs folks..  Fish them early and later when the sun is low.  Walking-the-dog is the way to go.  Sure chug bugs and other inline plugs work, but to really call them in you need to get that side-to-side.  Tons of plugs do it!  Some easier than others!  Lighter winds and an uptick in moisture as we head into the weekend could get those tarpon poppin, so check your favorite backwater “flow” area.  A bit of wind is forecasted over the holiday weekend, but don’t shy away from those windy shores.  The turbulent water can put fish on the bite for sure.  

Near-Shore  Well the winds have made it tough, but a few days of reprieve are upon us.  The wind and seas are looking good with an uptick in both for Sunday and Memorial Day.  Friday has the potential to be epic Near-Shore kayak conditions (hint: I’m open) with grass floating in.  Tripletail and tarpon should be good bets; along with mixed bag fishing in the bait pods.  If you haven’t had a chance to get on the Mahi fishing then this weekend should be good.  Go for the far run to get away from the crowds. North will typically get less pressure than south.  It’s going to be busy at the ramps with the “official” start of summer so be prepared and just go with it.  Everyone’s there for the same reason; some just get to do it more often.  Offer help, but don’t impose if needed.  It can be done tactfully! 
Everyone have a fun and safe Memorial weekend.  Be sure to get your summer trip booked.
Tight Lines! 



Open Dates this week:  5-22(Fri.), 5-23(Sat.) Plus have plenty of evening openings, and that bite has been spectacular.

       Weekly fishing Forecast by Local Lines Charters.com for May 4th, 2015.. Last week was an interesting one.  I did a little traveling for family, did a bit of protesting (Port Cargo Rail earthen causeway), and managed to crank out some great charters.  The bait is super thick so we spent a lot of time with live mullet in the water.  Lots of smaller trout, and a few missed solid ones. Plenty of aggressive reds to fill the time though! The front that pushed through late week made for a bit later of a bite on sat.


This week’s forecast:   

In-shore   Every lagoon predator is going bonkers for the bait right now, so fish accordingly.  Topwaters, Slayer Inc. SST’s, and mullet imitating hard baits will get you the hits.  Live mullet freelined are also paying well for anglers willing to sit in a “fishy” location.  A 3/0 circle hook in the tail of your mullet will usher it to swim away.  The night trout bite on topwater will be epic as we are on the days just past the full moon.  They should have spawned hard even with the funky little front we had this weekend and be very hungry.  I like to practice catch and release on all trout over 20 inches year round, but highly recommend it during the spawning months.  Let them big girls make more.  The redfish will get really aggressive when large amounts of bait are present.  Though it looks to be windy in the beginning of the week the weekend seems to subside. That moon will be big at night through the weekend.

Near-Shore
Wind, wind, wind..   as soon as the sea’s cooperate the tripletail show be chewing.  This weekend looks to be your best bet.  Look for fish on the buoys, floatsam, and weeds.  Though we didn't have much of a cobia season this year you never know when one will pop up.  Some solid tarpon action was just beginning to heat up before the blow, so they should be ready for us too!  Check out the Kayak Shark Fishing Video we put out HERE.


Open Dates this week:  5-06(Wed.), 5-9(Sat.) Plus have plenty of evening openings.
