Monday May 29, 2017
Sight is one of our five senses but you won't hear a whisper about the best places to sight fish from local anglers as they keep their lips tight about their secret locations to anyone. East of Orlando, Florida lies the beautiful saltwater lagoons that are strung around Florida's coastline like a like a charm necklace. Each charm on Florida's necklace has names like The "Mosquito Lagoon" & "Indian River Lagoon". Central Florida's east coast has several charms that are gems for the fishing enthusiast. In less than one hundred miles of coastline in Brevard County, there are no less than three ins.hore saltwater bodies of water and two inlets to keep anglers busy.
World Famous for the combination of clear water and redfish populations, the Mosquito Lagoon boast great sight fishing for fly and spinning enthusiast. Generally speaking the further north towards New Smyrna Inlet the clearer the water, but if the conditions are good, the south end of the lagoon will host some great visibility too.
The extreme north end of the Indian River Lagoon near Scottsmore and Titusville near Turnbull Creek is a sightfishing paradise. Tailing schools of large breeding fish are often found feeding in the shallow grass flats.
Famous for it's No Motor Zone or NMZ the Banana River can have the best sight fishing on the east coast and possibly the entire continent. Large schools of redfish, massive gator trout, black drum and even snook can be seen in the Banana River Lagoon.
Hailed as one of the most productive snook fishing inlets, the inshore side of the inlet and it's Indian River areas can be a productive sightfishing area for the knowledgeable angler.
New Smyrna Inlet
While not known for sight fishing the inshore waterways around the inlet can produce great fishing for redfish, sharks and black drum. Look offshore for cobia and large schools of redfish.
Sight fishing for ocean pelagics like cobia can be as good as it gets at various times of the year. Look to the warmer months for sightfishing cobia, redfish and other ocean going fish like Jacks and Tarpon.

May - 2017 Fishing Report
May - 2017 Fishing Forecast
May in Central Florida is the beginning of great things for people looking toward an ocean fishing trip looking for fast action. King Mackerel, Cobia and even a few tarpon start to make a showing as May develops into a more summer like pattern. Inshore the fishing can be productive for early morning and evening anglers as the sun warms the gin clear waters of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Banana Rivers. Both Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout will be a popular gamefish that even the youngest anglers will appreciate and enjoy. Bring plenty of sunscreen, some polarized sunglasses and broadbill hat as the Florida sunshine will penetrate the most protected boating endeavors. May is the beginning of the summer in Florida as far as the temperatures are concerned, but there's often an afternoon shower, so be prepared to fish early and get off the water before the afternoon storms roll in. So remember, inshore fishing and offshore fishing are an equal opportunity in May in Central Florida.
