Three Day Florida Fishing Mania

Three Day Florida Fishing Mania

When traveling to Florida you must experience the endless opportunities to get in the outdoors. You can spend a Three Day Florida Fishing Mania with family or friends. New Smyrna Florida offers some of the best fishing you can set your hook into. I never could have imagined the amount of memories that could be created with Captain Wayne.

Captain Wayne had the pleasure of fishing with Laura and her dad Jim. They were traveling from Chicago on vacation with no expectation to what was to come. Laura was surprising her dad on a Florida Fishing adventure of a lifetime over the course of three days.

New Smyrna Bass Fishing

The first day out was spent Lake Ashby Bass Fishing. Lake Ashby is looking beautiful this time of year. Fall is the perfect time to soak in the scenery and explore new parts of the lake. You could be highly surprised at what you can experience on a lake this size.

Laura and Jim enjoyed the partly cloudy weather conditions with temperatures in the mid 90s. While waiting on the bite, they sat back and relaxed with a nice breeze in the air.  Great weather promotes a great bite this time of year as they put over 20 largemouth bass in the boat. They caught some quality ones too with the biggest weighing 5 pounds 4 ounces.

They both shared the passion for fishing but never got a chance to key in on artificial baits. Wild caught shiners were the most effective technique to catch largemouth bass on Lake Ashby. It is also very exciting since you never know when you are going to land that fish you have been dreaming of.

New Smyrna Deep Sea Fishing

Captain Wayne adventured out to something different on their second day. New Smyrna Deep Sea Fishing for Mahi Mahi or Dolphin was something that was always fascinating to Laura and Jim. There is nothing like cruising off the shores of the beach and into an unpredictable day out in the ocean.

We had a window of great weather for most of the day with storms expected for the afternoon. The seas were at 2 to 4 foot most of the day which wasn’t a problem for catching fish.

Laura and Jim really wanted to catch this delicious fish that they haven’t gotten the chance to do before. We made it happen with a slow start catching non-keepers. Being patient is the game while you are Florida Fishing and we finally connected with the keeper we were waiting for.

It was not long after that one keeper that they got to experience something they would never forget. Two more hits and fish started a Mania that was highly unexpected. We came across a school of Mahi that rewarded us with 40 Mahi in the boat. It is always good to preserve the fishery so we only kept 14 of them and released the rest.

After an experience like that their arms were very tired and their faces were sore from the amount of laughs and smiles. They had dinner for multiple nights and they called it a day.

New Smyrna Inshore Fishing

On their final day with Captain Brad was something they wanted to check off their bucket list for a long time. Bull Redfish has always been the species that they have wanted to catch. New Smyrna is the perfect location to catch a variety of the species, especially your first Redfish or Black Drum.

It was looking like a great day again with beautiful weather for another amazing fishing trip. The mostly sunny conditions promoted excellent fishing. A mix of 25 Redfish and Black Drum were caught along with a few Snook. They were excited to catch the quality Redfish they did.

One of the many things people love about Redfish fishing is the fight they put up. You could never imagine the strength they have when they are on the end of your line. Laura and Jim thoroughly enjoyed catching their first Bull Redfish.

It was truly an honor and my pleasure to provide Jim a gift from Laura that they will never forget. I am looking forward to the next time they return to catch more of these incredible species here in Florida.

If you are looking for a memorable fishing adventure that will provide you stories for a lifetime, do not look further than the great state of Florida. We can provide all that you need to enjoy a great day out on the water with the ones that are important to you.

I know next time I am visiting Florida and New Smyrna, I will be chasing all the species I can from salt to freshwater!

OFFSHORE TROLLING OUT OF PORT CANAVERAL

Port Canaveral Offshore Trolling

Great weather for fishing. West winds are starting to stack up some weeds offshore, and they proved to be somewhat fishy this trip. NE of the weather buoy some tightly scattered weeds proved to be just what the icebox needed. We started around the perimeter first, and the results came slowly, but good. First fish in was a 15lb Mahi. Like the last few weeks of fishing these anglers had never caught a “Dolphin”, and made it the target species of the trip. No company with this catch, so lines back to work.

Client David Bunch and his friend were traveling from Oklahoma to adventure out on a Cape Canaveral Offshore Fishing Charter with iOutdoor. They were in-store for an amazing day of fishing with great fish in the boat. You never know what to expect when Port Canaveral Offshore Trolling!

 

Another half hour, and the line goes off again. It did not seem too big till the angler put some bend in the rod, then a couple hundred yards of line peeled. This fish was not a jumper, but still we waited till we seen the colors to know what we had. It took a while with our Dolphin rigs to finally work it to the boat, but the Blue stripes was a very welcome sight. Wahoo in the boat. This 50lb fish made the day for these guys, and we still had time to fish.

Port Canaveral Offshore Trolling

Another pass around the area with no results, so we decided to cut through the weed field. A little time passed, and a lot of cleaning fouled lines of weed, but another hookup. Another Mahi-Mahi was on the line, dragging weeds with it. As we got it near the boat we saw it had company. The second fish did not take the other lines, so a pitch rod went to work. It looked, it followed, but nada. Other offerings were put in front of it but it turned its nose up at all we offered, and eventually made its way off. We sent
lines back out, working the weed field some more with no more action while Port Canaveral Offshore Trolling.

Finally we headed to 8A to see if we could pick up a King or two to make a Slam. One line down, another out the back, and into slow gear we went. 20 minutes into the run, the downrigger released, and drag went out. This fish came to the surface and went airborne. A nice 20 lb bull Mahi was on the line. We worked it to the boat, and about a foot short of gaff range it decided it no longer wanted to play the game, and unhooked itself. Big smiles were on the anglers faces despite the loss of this fish. With lobster red sun burnt skin, they were ready to return to port and clean fish.
