Captain Scott Blanford's Fishing Reports

Halifax-Tomoka River

With the upcoming full moon keeping the fish up all night feeding, expect the morning bite to be a little slow. If you can and weather allows, schedule a night or afternoon trip.

Halifax - Dock fishing continues to be excellent. Use multiple types of bait to help you catch multiple species. Redfish, flounder, blackdrum, sheepshead, trout, and snapper are just some. Last week we caught a baby goliath grouper. That was a first for me while cork fishing for redfish.

Pictures are from last Wednesday of Byron Marlowe and Justin Marshall of Lexington, KY while fishing the Tomoka River with artificials. The snook was 30 inches (released) and the flounder was 18"

Tomoka - Rains continue to wreck havoc on the upper Tomoka. Even downstream at the mouth and in the basin the salinity is getting too low. A few snook still patrol the banks, but bites will be few and far in between. If it dries out for a week or so, I'd expect it to pickup again.
