Labor Day weekend fishing report

Capt. Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard's Marina gives the latest fishing forecast for the Bay Area for the upcoming Labor Day weekend and the days that follow.

Redfish biting inshore along the mangrove lines

It’s pretty active inshore, especially with the redfish. We’re coming up to that time of year where we see more schools of redfish in the back bay areas, says Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina.

Fishing Report: Aug. 5, 2022

Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard's Marina says the full moon later this week means more moving water, and there should be more fish and bait moving around inshore.

Fishing Report: July 29, 2022

Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says the new moon means we have strong currents. Water is flushing out of the bays, which means more bait inshore.

New moon will change inshore fish movement

Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says he is looking forward to the upcoming new moon, which mean more moving water. It will concentrate the inshore bite during the day since they won’t have the natural light to feed at night. At night though, you’ll find a concentration of fish near those dock and bridge lights.

Redfish, snook action is hot inshore

There’s still a lot of moving water on the back end of the full moon, meaning it is refreshing the bay and getting inshore fish actively feeding. As we move through the week, the bite will get tougher, especially during the day, says Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina.

Fishing Report: Full moon phase means more moving water

Around mid-week, a full moon will be coming through. That means more moving water, which leads to more oxygen and cooler temperature. That’s all you need to motivate slow-moving fish to feed more actively, says Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina.

2022 Fourth of July fishing forecast

It will be busy out in the bay and Gulf this holiday weekend. Capt. Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina dives into how to properly handle fish and taking care of them in the best way possible. Release mortality could be very high when handling certain types of fish, specifically inshore.

New moon, Florida heat influencing fish movement

Fish are congregating in deeper waters or shade to find some cooler areas. That also means they are more active at night, Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina. The new moon will also move that water around more to refresh the back bay.

Inshore is ‘loaded with snook’

Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says the onshore wind is impacting inshore fish like the tarpon, moving them off the beach. ‘Fish do move with the wind flows,’ he says. Speaking of inshore, the snook bite is hot right now.

Fishing opportunity arrives after tropical system passes

Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina says it’s a great time to do a little maintenance on the boat this weekend as a tropical system passes over Florida. After, once it calms down, those fish are hungry because they were hunkered down for the storm.

New moon means anglers should target areas with artificial lights

Monday’s new moon means there will be less moonlight, giving fish inshore less opportunities to feed through the nighttime, unless they find that artificial lights. Snook, redfish, trout, tarpon and sometimes tripletail, will likely be feeding in those areas, says Captain Dylan Hubbard of Hubbard’s Marina.
