Melbourne Beach Fishing Reports

Fishing reports from Melbourne Beach, Florida, Early December 2022

Fishing report from Rio S. in Melbourne Beach, Florida. Book a trip with Captain Rio here.

    Surf fishing has been slow but productive unless you're after the toothy critters! We've been getting into whiting, and bluefish mostly but there are reports of pompano being caught here and there. Shark fishing has been as good as it gets for our area. The Trout family joined me for a night of shark fishing and they met their match with this Blacktip shark estimated around 70-80 pounds. Tight lines and good fishing!

    We’ve been seeing windows of good surf fishing conditions over the last few weeks. In those select opportunities, we are catching quality whiting and big bluefish for our area. Until the water cleans up for us, Pompano will be few and far between, however if you are feeling lucky like Jason was, you may get to catch a slot-sized Redfish out of the surf, which isn’t a very common catch for my area. Tight lines and good fishing.

    Fishing is hot right now on the Central Florida coast! We are seeing waves of Pompano migrating through with the schools of Mackerel and Bluefish. The seaweed has subsided for the most part, this is the best it's been all year for surf fishing. Find yourself some clean water, a good sandbar and you'll be on your way for some quality fishing. My go-to lure for Bluefish and Mackerel and Big Jacks in the surf. 1oz Gunslinger Jig by Beach Bum Lures. Pompano Rig: Pompano Rich "Pompano Catchers" Surfari Series- Color coordinate your floats to the water conditions. Bait of Choice: Live sandfleas or shrimp cut into small pieces tipped with FishGum. Tight Lines and Good fishing!
