Anyone been out with success lately? Oak hill, Edgewater, NSB Areas? Is the clarity coming back at all yet? Seen any grass coming back? Trout bite heating up? Any snook still around? 

This forum is dead and people used to post on here weekly, not so much anymore. Just trying to spark some interest and see if anyone has been getting after it. I've been busy as hell with work and football season not getting out as much as I should.

    Last time I was out was probably a month ago, got into some small snook on topwater around sunrise and some slot reds around noonish. But haven't been out since

    I haven't been out in a while - last trip was nothing but small trout.

    No idea about water clarity - too lazy to walk down to the dock when I go over to visit the folks, roughly weekly.  Hoping the fishing comes back.  Not in a hurry to go right now.

    I visited my mom's grave at the Cape Canaveral Veterans Cemetery in Mims and checked out the scottsmoor boat ramp. The channel coming out of the ramp into the lagoon is almost dry  12" wide at low tide. You'd have to pushpole in order to get out and in and still you'd struggle. But the water looked pretty good. Decent clarity, no sea grass as far as I could see. Maybe some other type of grass but not what used to be there.

    Went to Indian river week before Christmas, drifted shallow from Peacocks pocket north a few miles, only Small black Drum all over, hooked one on fly but came loose. Just before giving up, found a black muddy creak that had some Trout to save the day.

    Super D, How was the water quality around Peacocks? Any seagrass?

    Blue, mostly just sand, with very cloudy water.

    I can say that things are no better mid lagoon or South. The water is nowhere near typical "January clear". Honestly, I found cleaner water around River Breeze back in mid-Dec 
    I hope the colder temps turn things around shortly.

    Remo would know.  forums are dead because of haters, bashers, just rude people.  Remo got railroaded by someone (that I dont need to point out he does it ALL the time) on here for taking pics of fish out of water and sharing his passion on a social media outlet that allot of members enjoy. well they did enjoy but as you mentioned no more fun.  way too many posting negativity from a keyboard in their underwear.  prob because they are mad at the world they created for themselves, and we pay the price. a BIG part of WHY THIS FORUM IS DEAD.  happens on all the forums these deadbeats troll so no more fun for YOU!   thanks for trying to keep it going for those who do enjoy sharing on here rather than FB world.

    Good points. It also becomes a bit of a self-fulfilling snowball. I never personally caught any grief over any posts, but used to report most of my trips. I only stopped because everybody else seemed to stop. I like y'all, but why share everything I'm doing if I'm not getting any useful info from here.

    Yeah I remember that thread of that dude trying to bash remo, I jumped in on his side(Remos) lol. But I agree its unfortunate people have to be so negative and salty all the time. And I hate social media and do not have a facebook so Id come here just trying to read some reports and get some intel from people who actually know what they're talking about. I dont get out as much as I would like living in Orlando since 2020, I am not a lake guy so I always tow up to NSB to scratch that salt itch. I'm from Jax Beach and cut my teeth in St. Aug and the territory up there compared to central fl is so different. For the past year and a half I've just been trying to figure the area out. I have had some great days but I would like to be more consistent with snook, preferably slots bc the majority of the snook i catch in nsb/lagoon are like small 15"-23". Not many of them up in NEFL, I would get a straggler like once or twice a year in st aug when fishing for reds. Seems like the dudes from south FL want to catch reds and everyone from North FL wants snook lol
