Don’t want to be caught unprepared. Come in and check out our custom swordfish baits. #broadbill #ladyfish

Last week was a good one for team Strike-Zone. Jim found himself a nice gag out of the port in 200ft along with some red snapper, Cobia and bonitos. @richter7628 was a long ways to the north on the northeast canyons but he was able to stretch the line on his @fish_shimano_north_america Talica 16II on a nice white marlin. @reid_pitten found a nice 39” linesider I’m outgoing tide at Sebastian inlet on a grub. @jordanhoffmann_2 also found a nice snook in the Sebastian area on a live finger mullet. @mtprowler was able to boat a good broadbill with the @anglers_envy_charters crew. They made four drops and caught a squid on the second and the sword on the last one. Great week guys! Let’s get through the storm and do it again!

Set your calendars for September 27th. @pompanoriggsbycouture will be giving a seminar here at Strike-Zone from 6-8pm. The fishing seminar will include tips on fishing the mullet run and targeting Pompano and other species in the surf from September to May! Talking about what color floats to use on Riggs for different water clarity’s that help Stack your odds on catching more Pompano. He will also be talking about different types of baits, both live and artificial! Choosing the proper tackle and gear to help better your surf fishing skills and demonstrating how to properly tie up your own Pompano Riggs and cure your own baits!
We will have some great raffles and giveaways as well. Big thanks to the sponsors @fishbites @tsunamitackle @mountthisfish @bimini_bay_outfitters and Ande fishing line.

Perfect timing with snook season and the mullet run to receive a Van Staal order. We got a few VR50s and they will not last long! #vanstaalreels #snook

Hogy and Spool Tek swimbaits are back in stock! #snookseason #tarponfishing

2018 snapper season comes to a close. Here is team Strike-Zone’s report for the second weekend.
Shawn caught a limit of snappers out of the Port. Had to work a little harder to find the big fish compared to last weekend. (Not pictured)

Jim left the dock in Grant at 3:00am Sunday and got back at 7:30am. They ran out to 90 foot and caught 15 snapper and two cobia. Biggest snapper was 18lb.

Eric caught the largest snapper amongst the Strike-Zone team with a 19.01lb fish. They also fished in 90’ just north of Sebastian.
Logan and Matt got a limit of snapper and then went deeper in search of swordfish. They went 1 for 3 on swords and landed a bonus pomfret.
Please come in and share your snapper season success stories!
