The Tomoka Basin has been producing some outstanding fishing for the past few weeks for us. Since the influx of Menhaden a few weeks ago, the fish have been on a feeding frenzy. The Tarpon bite continues to heat up in the Shallows of the Basin. Find the bait and you will find fish. Live mullet has been the key to our success. The Redfish action has also been very good. Again, natural bait has been out catching the plastic 5-1. Heading up the Tomoka River, the Snook and Tarpon are growing in size. The water clarity is much better up that way, so artificials have been the key for covering ground. If I had to pick just one lure this year, it would have to be the 3" Glow/Coppercrush DOA Shrimp. It catches everything, anytime, day or night! If you can find live shrimp, the Black Drum and Mangrove Snapper have also been a reliable catch around structure. I hope this helps you guys/gals get a few fish on the line this week. Remember to practice catch and release whenever possible.
