Native Sons Fishing Guides, Central Florida & Indian River Lagoon Fishing Charters

Apr. 15, 2009 – Fishing Heating Up

The fishing over the past week has been warming along with the weather. We still had to contend with the lingering blustery winds of early spring and a freak cold front on Easter weekend but conditions have improved overall … and so has the fishing.

Our lead report stars young Scott Martin and his dad Gary, both of Satellite Beach. Scott is quite a fishing fanatic and was anxious to catch his first snook during a Ft. Pierce adventure with Capt. Rocky. Despite the early start time and strong winds Scott succeeded on his mission with a 31 inch beast. He also caught a 31 inch trout during the charter to join the elite 30/30 fraternity.

A day later, Capt. Roland took Greg Mihalak from Michigan to the same area and had a pair of great guide trips on half day charters. He caught a bunch of fish including snook and large trout.

The Mulla family from Palm Bay, Florida are featured in our next report. Chartering with Capt. Roland, parents John and Marjorie along with daughters Sarah and Rebecca, fished the Melbourne Beach and Grant stretch of the Indian River. The crew caught a number of good fish and had a grand time on a picture-perfect day. It was tiny Rebecca with the biggest fish, a 32 inch, 8.5 lb gator trout.

Another recent Capt. Roland chartered starred the Georgiades family from New Jersey. Fishing on a freak cold spring day (temps in the low 40s), this hale and hardy crew found protected waters in the Melbourne Beach area. They caught 15 to 20 fish including redfish, trout, ladyfish and jacks. George’s two sons, Mikey and Andreas are pictured below holding a redfish and jack.

Finally, Charles and Anna from the UK chartered Capt. Rocky on a half-day guide trip to stalk redfish in the Titusville section of the Indian River Lagoon system. Among the trophies caught on the day was this 32 inch brute which took Charles on quite a wild ride before being subdued.
