October well known for its extreme high tides, makes for tough fishing at times. The high tides allow fish to venture far back into mangroves and structures in search of bait. The bonus to having the higher tides, strong out going tides forced most of the freshwater run off we have received in our local area out to sea.
Tarpon fishing is my favorite! The past week the tarpon went absolutely berserk. Pods off tarpon covered our local water ways crashing bait schools with a vengeance. Anglers experience phenomenal tarpon fishing from sun up to sundown, multiple hook ups made for craziness and team work to avoid break offs. The tarpon struck live baits and DOA terror eyz. Tarpon ranged in size from 10 to 80 pounds.
Snook fish was consistent targeting structures and sea walls. High water made fishing for snook tough at times. Mid out going tide offered best shots at the linesiders using live baits.
Jack crevalle schools covered beaches and much of the intercostal. Birds hovered over bait schools offered clue to the jacks location. Rapala skitter walks and live baits presented to jacks gets the drag screaming.
Well that is the fishing report for the past week, hope you all enjoyed. Remember you can’t catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines!
