Fishing Banana/Indian Rivers 5/26-5/27. How's the grass looking?


Recommended Posts

Coming over from Tampa and being joined by my adult son.  Launching from Eau Gallie ramp and heading north the first day and then south the second.  Fished this area 40 years ago (ouch - 40?).  I'm going to assume, it's changed a bit (and not necessarily for the better.

Any suggestions on general areas to work?  

I appreciate

Not 100% sure of the grass situation where youre going to be fishing, but assume its about the same as 10-20 miles south. But to the south the grass has been dead or very short. The droughts help bring it back some. I would concentrate on other structures like oysters, docks, or islands. They hold fish around the Sebastian area atleast.

I'm going to be fishing due North and then due South of Patrick AFB.  I'm worried that it's going to be a mud bowl and like you suggested hit the oysters, docks and such.  It's called FISHING, not CATCHING - so we'll have a blast either way!

Thanks

DI,

These are my home waters, but I have not fished this area in over a year. The water "looks" pretty good at this time. If the rains come that will change...

There is very little of the "right kind" of grass that I can see, or have heard about. 

That said people are catching some fish, and last time I went we caught a bunch of dink trout that made for a fun day.

Docks, points, and depth changes, are what I would concentrate on.

I much prefer to launch at Ballard Park vs. Eau Gallie Causeway. It's always calm, can be fresh water, and there can be some good fishing in the EG River.

Good Luck!

Mike

Update!  We've decided to fish the main creeks/rivers on the West side of Indian River.

Fishing Crane Creek

Turkey Creek

And finally Eau Gallie River.

It matches our fishing style over here in Tampa Bay.  Hitting the mangroves, shorelines, docks, obstructions, etc.

I'm excited to hit the water and bend a few poles.

Thanks everyone for all the assistance and help!  I'll post "monster" fish images when we get back.
