Sight Fishing Charters
The Indian River Lagoon On The Space Coast
Thursday October 19, 2017
Sight fishing is a popular fishing method in Indian River lagoon on Florida's east coast. Movement stirring in the water, sillohuettes and shadows lurking in the grass beds or possibly tailing redfish are all signs that anglers need to watch and learn when locating fish.
Having great eyesight helps when you're looking for the tell tale signs and the presence of fish, but it's not all about keen eyes according Captain Richard of Lagooner Fishing Guides. "Sight Fishing is about training your eyes and continually looking. It helps to have great eyesight, but if you don't practice looking for signs of fish, you'll never sharpen your ability to visually find them".
What to look for when Sightfishing
Tailing Fish - Calm days make it easy to see fish swimming and tailing. Fish tail in deep and shallow water, so don't restrict your glances to only the shallows.
Movements or Stirring Water - Moving water almost always means life in the water. Learn to look for feeding fish, bait, and movements. Over time, you'll learn what's relevant and not in the waters you frequent.
The Push - The push is another form of movements in the water, but is worth a separate mention. Schools of fish push water, whether it's baitfish or gamefish, learn to look for the push from schools of fish.
The Fish - Yeah, look for the fish with a pair of polarized sunglasses on sunny days. If it's clear enough you may be able to simply see the fish lying, swimming or feeding in the water.
Remember that sightfishing is a developed skill and many believe you never master mother nature and her many curveballs she throws at you with the elements. Fish tail on windy days and they tail on glassy mornings, learn to train your eyes in all conditions and you'll be a better fisherman.

October - 2017 Fishing Report
The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.
Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.
