10.24.14 Fishing Report
The ocean forecast is in the midst of changing seasons, it has been a little wet and windy out there. The fish are used to being wet so it doesn’t affect them, but the north winds should help them get a little feisty for dinner!
The Dolphin bite has been around in fair numbers all year and is being found closer in about 600-800 feet, which is about 5 miles offshore in the Southeast Region of Florida. As normal, always look for floating debris and around the weed lines for these colorful predators. Trolling with artificial lures and ballyhoos are the best ways lately and may also spark the interest of a blackfin tuna too! While the Blackfin tuna are not around in large amounts, an occasional wahoo could be hanging around in the blue waters. Sailfish action has improved and Captain Jimbo Thomas mentioned, those anglers that are targeting them have been starting to see them regularly, a couple sails a day. Snapper fishing still remains fair with some fair muttons and nice size yellowtail snappers.
The mullet run is officially starting to dwindle down as the seasons change into Fall/Winer. Now, the snook are actively feeding even more now, as they know the mullets are migrating. This is a dynamite time to go nighttime snook fishing, since they don’t have much bait to choose from. Flats fishing has improved with spotted sea trout showing back up. Jacks, Ladyfish, and a few pompano are still keeping the inshore fishing steady. As for the Surf and the Pier, action has been really great! Spanish Mackeral have been around in big numbers, catching one after another! Plenty of keeper pompano on the beaches too!
Good Luck & Hang on to your lines!
