2020 SeaView Fishing Pier
Catching some Pompano and Blues today! A couple spot here and there too.
The winds of change are upon us since it looks like we are going to get our first good NE blow which will get the cooler water moving down the coast and maybe get some fish migrating. Lots of Tarpon and bait fishes are seen daily heading south and I would think that this NE blow could get more bait moving and some bottom fish biting. This past week mostly kept were flounders and Ribbon Fish with a few Blue Fish , Spanish and Sea Mullet.
The signs of summer fading into fall are starting to appear. The yellow butterflies have made their showing and the bait fishes have started their migration to the south. Small pods of finger mullet with a few pods of cob mullet have been swimming down the coast past the pier daily. Tarpon have been seen moving down the coast. Soon the plugging and jigging for Blue and Spanish will get good with some King Mackerel action and then as the water keeps cooling the bottom fishing could get very good as we get into the spot runs.
Mostly in the coolers have been Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum and a few Trout and Sea Mullet. Slow plugging and jigging for Spanish and Blues in the greenish sandy water.
Fishing still a bit on the slow side but some Black Drum, Trout and Blue Fish have been caught on bottom rigs. Some small Sea Mullet, Croaker and Spot have also been caught. Slow plugging and Jigging for Blues and Spanish in the sandy water. Seeing schools has Menhaden moving down the beach which might have been flushed out of the sounds from the rains when the Hurricane passed through.
We are still in the summer time fishing pattern where those fishing live baits are doing better then those fishing cut baits. Today with the stronger winds the cut bait fishing has picked up some but still on the slow side. A few Sea Mullet, Croaker, Blue Fish and Trout have been caught on bottom rigs. Not many trying plugs or jigs in the sandy brownish green water. Water will stay sandy and sired up until the storm passes Mon/Tuesday.
Some nice sized Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel have been caught this week of the King Rigs. Speckled Trout are being caught on Live Shrimp fished under a float rig. Big Sheepshead are seen feeding around the pilings. A bit on the slow side for those fishing cut baits. Here is Eric with a 6.6 pound Spanish Mackerel caught on the King Rig.
A couple of large Spanish and a 28.2 pound King Mackerel caught off the King Rigs today. Bottom fishing has picked up some but still on the slow side. It may keep picking up since the next few days will be having stronger winds. Sea Mullet, Spot, Trout, Sheepshead, Black Drum and Blue fish have been caught.
We are in the dog days of summer with hot day and some of the warmest water of the year. Today there was not much wind blowing so the fishing was on the slow side. Only one Large Spanish Mackerel caught off the King Rigs with bait being hard to catch. There were a couple limits of Speckled Trout and a few other picked up one or two fishing Live Shrimp under a float rig. Plugging and Jigging for Spanish and Blues were on the slow side as was fishing with cut bait on the bottom. The last few days were SW winds but that has changed and the next few days the winds will be from the East so the fishing should pick up some.
Several large Spanish Mackerel caught off the King Rigs with an 18 Pound King Mackerel. Some Spanish Mackerel and Blue Fish caught on Got-Cha plugs and Diamond jigs. A few Trout caught on Live Shrimp fished under a float rig. Some Spot and Sea Mullet caught on cut bait fished on the bottom.
A limit of Trout and a few other Trout and a couple of Blue Fish have been caught on live Shrimp fished under a float rig. Slow for those plugging and jigging for Blue Fish and Spanish Mackerel with a few being caught. Slow for those fishing cut baits on the bottom. Yesterday they decked about half dozen large Spanish using live bait on the King Rigs with no luck today so far. Tarpon are swimming past the end of the pier with no takers. July is the slowest month of fishing with the no wind/hot days.
Decent day fishing live baits off the King Rigs where 7 large Spanish up to 5 pounds have been decked off live shad. No luck with those fishing live Shrimp for Trout but they did catch a few Blue Fish. Slow plugging/jigging for Blues and Spanish. It was slow for those fishing cuts baits on the bottom with the better bite in the evenings after the heat of the day has passed.
Another very good day for those fishing live baits off the King Rigs off the end of the pier. They ended up catching 26 Spanish Mackerel up to ~7 pounds and a 30.3 pound King Mackerel. So between yesterday and today they put 50 large Spanish on the deck and two kings. It was slow for those fishing live shrimp under a float rig for Trout but those fishing cut baits on the bottom caught some Spot, Sea Mullet and Croaker. The Spanish bite slowed down since the wind were blowing over 20 knots and the water got sandy. The wind forecast is for a couple of day of strong SW winds which will be lighter winds towards the weekend.
The last couple of days there have been Trout and Blue Fish
caught on live Shrimp fished under a float rig. A few Spanish and some Blue
Fish caught on Diamong Jigs and Got-cha plugs. Those
fishing cuts baits have been catching Spot, Sea Mullet and croakers. The winds
are forecasted to be light from the SW and S so that should get some fish
A few Blue Fish, Spot, Sea Mullet and Trout and been caught
today by those fishing cut baits on the bottom. A few Blue Fish have been
caught on Diamond jig and Got-cha plugs.
Strong winds blowing from the South has got the water all
stirred up and dirty. This morning a few Spanish Mackerel
and Blue Fish were jigged up on diamond jigs and Got-Cha plugs. Those fishing
cut baits on the bottom put some Sea Mullet, Spot and Blue Fish in their
As the wind slowed down so did the bottom fishing bite. I guess you could say 'Slow winds slow bite and fast
winds fast bite'. Although slow there were some Spot, Sea Mullet, Pig Fish,
Croaker, Blue Fish and Trout put in some coolers for those fishing cut baits on
the bottom. Those working the Diamond Jig and Got-Cha plug in the greenish
clean water put some Blue Fish and Spanish Mackerel in
their coolers. With the forecast this week of light winds and calm seas we
would except the water to clear up a bit more and possibly a good
/decent bite for Blue Fish and Spanish Mackerel. This week should also be a
good week to fish live Shrimp under a float rig for Speckled Trout. If you were
thinking of fishing your King Rig this would be a week of clean green water.
The wind forecast is for winds to pick up this weekend and that should get
those bottom fish biting good/decent again. Good luck!
Today a good mix of fish have been
caught. There were some limits of Speckled Trout for those fishing live Shrimp
under a float rig. Those fishing cut baits on the bottom put some Spot, Sea
Mullet, Blue Fish, Black Drum, Croaker and Trout in their coolers. There were
even a decent amount of Blue Fish caught on Diamond
Jig and Got-Cha plugs with a few Spanish Mixed in. I would think we should have the same action tomrrow sine the winds will be doing the same as today.
Today is a windy day at the coast with dirty water. There
have been some Sea Mullet, Spot, Red Drum, Black Drum, Trout, Croaker and Blue
Fish that have been caught.

Fishing being caught today using cut shrimp fished on the bottom in the muddy water have been Spot, Sea Mullet, Black Drum, Trout and Blue Fish. They have caught some Spanish Mackerel and Blue Fish on Got-Cha lures and Diamond jig.
Some big Blues were caught today along with scattered catches of Spanish Mackerel. Mullets and some Pompano were also caught. Off the end a large Tarpon was caught and released.
Dirty water with some Sea Mullet and Black Drum being caught. Slow for Blue Fish and Spanish. There is a building ground swell so that should keep the Mullet , Black Drum, Red Drum and Trout biting.
Multiple Kings were decked today with a good amount of Blue Fish and Spanish Mackerel caught. Bottom fishing was on the slow side today.
As the winds shifted so did the current which brought in the
warmer water which also brought in the fish. Lots of bait swimming around and
by the pier. Limits of Blue Fish and Spanish were caught for those using
Got-Cha plugs and Diamond Jigs. A bit on the slow side for those
bottom fishing with cut baits but some Sea Mullet, Blue Fish, Trout and
Black Drum were caught. The wind forecast for the rest of the week looks good
so we expect the bite for Blue Fish and Spanish to be good to decent fishing throughout this weekend.
The day was cold and windy but the water was nice and clear. Big Blues up to 3 pounds and nice sized Spanish Mackerel were being caught mostly around the high tide. Gotcha plugs of almost any color and diamond jigs were being used.
