We fished Saturday morning and afternoon, with warm water up front we decided to go long. I heard some reports of fish between 300 & 400 fow. We decided with the flat seas to go a bit further and explore. We dropped in at 375 fow and had our first hit / fish at 425 fow. We then kept heading east until we hit our next fish at 540, we hit another at 550. We then turned in a figure 8 pattern 3 times getting hit on each pass as we hit our waypoint. We ground it out and ended up at 7 for 10, throwing back a couple smalls. It was about a hit an hour but with the great conditions it was an awesome day out on the water.... We had all rainbows with the exception of one coho. The two patterns that took almost every fish were 80 down on riggers and 10 color off boards, we tried cranks, J plugs and F/F combos with zero results, a 100% spoon bite for us. Good luck to all.

Went out today with some friends and family,  lost 2 and got one in the boat! All I can say is that it was a beautiful day out there,  and my 8 year old grandson is already wanting to do it again!

Fished the gap (the area just outside the mouth of the break walls) yesterday from 6PM to 8PM using spoons on lead core and j-plugs behind dipsy divers. Marked lots of fish, but no bites. Beautiful night to be out fishing even if the bite wasn't on. Quite a few boats out there, but I only saw two fish come in to the cleaning station. 61° water temp at the surface.

Looked like there was a fish dragging around a broken off planer board a couple hundred yards southeast of the gap.

Also saw some idiot fly out of the gap in a tiny raft with no lights long after dark. Sounded like maybe he was drunk, hooting and hollering. Coast Guard came out, detained him, and towed his boat to the Deland ramp.

I did see a guy on shore catch probably a 10 lbs fish by the 8th street bridge two days ago.

Tight lines, guys.

Got out Saturday evening in the fog. Got out late, around 7 pm. On my own, so only 3 lines out.

Colder water (surface only) was actually in close, bot as low as 56 at 80-120'. I should have paid attention and dropped lines there.

Went out to 180 and set lines, fished out to 250'. Rigger went a couple time but nothing there when I got to the rods. Not 100% sure they were fish.

Temps went back up to the low 60's and got warmer the deeper I went. 66 at the warmest. On the plus side, no fog out there.

Did not mark much until I got out to 225', still not consistent there. 

Beautiful night, full moon, so I just chilled and stayed out til 1 am. Could not resist being out alone on a full moon. Air temps were in the 80's our farther. Did not cool down til I hit the cold water and fog on the way back in.

Went out 8/26 4am-11:30am,

Worked 80-150FOW, 1-1 with a 12# king on a dipsy 67LOC #3 setting with a moonshine blue jeans.Wife caught the fish it was her first time out, Caught it within first 20min of fishing never had another bump again.

Ran 10 rods:

Dipsy's-67LOC and 103LOC

Boards-100feet back orange pro kings did nothing for us

Riggers- 80,60,50,40. Ran spoons and plugs for the most part had F/F's on for about 2 hours before we pulled them.

Everyone we talked to at the docks had either 0 or 1 fish, except one group who had 5(3 bows & 2 lakers). Saw guys fishing extremely shallow and guys probably close to 300FOW. Didn't mark any bait balls but ill be honest I was teaching a buddy in his boat how I run my spread so not sure, but all the fish we marked were either top 35feet or bottom 20ft, nothing between. Next trip not scheduled for 2 weeks but I hope this cooler water stays around.

Huh? ^


Waves are fine this afternoon, the further out you get the closer they get to two feet.  


Anyway as expected 95' down in 180' of water gives you your fIrst temperature break to high fifties.


One ten pound rainbow so far in the first thirty minutes 95 down on a rigger spoon.

With N/W winds at 8 mph?  Is this an old report?  National Weather service shows 1 foot waves.  Please confirm this information someone.

With a beach advisory for the last 2 days the waves are wicked.  Had a trip cancelled this morning with Slammin Salmon Two.  Water is really churned up.  Will try again in three weeks.  Strong NW wind is bad news!
