Fishing Report

The fall Tarpon fishing has been some of the best we have had in years and
the bite continues to be strong. It started with the mullet run and as the
mullet slowed down, the glass minnows were thick off the beach. With the
glass minnows, we had huge numbers of jacks, Little tunny, Mackeral and more
tarpon. As of late, we haven’t been able to get out due to the winds, but
the inlet bite has been very good and should continue till January or
February depending on the cold fronts.

The nearshore bite was also good up until the winds started with plenty of
big Flounder caught on a regular basis. As the cold fronts gain strength and
the water cools off, we should get more Flounder in the inlet ready to eat
some jigs and live finger mullet or mud minnows. The colder water will also
move some of the bigger mangrove snapper and some grouper into the inlet.

The snook bite in the inlet has been great as well as slot and over slot
reds. As we get later into the fall, the bite is better at night than it is
in the daytime. The inshore bite has been pretty good with some good trout
from Grant to Very as well as scattered reds and snook along the mangrove
shorelines. The inshore Flounder bite has been ok so far but should get
better as they move into the inlet.

I have a new boat ordered and should be ready right after Thanksgiving. It’s
a new 2014 Shoalwater 23′ Tunnel hull with a tower and a 150hp Evinrude
E-TEC. Between getting sick for a week and waiting on the new boat, my water
time has been limited the last several weeks. That will change come the 1st
week of December. Looking to getting the new ride wet and providing some
good reports.
