In October we generally start to see a drop in the temperatures and an uptick in the winds, as Florida transitions to its fall weather patterns. The overwhelming winds the last couple of weeks of September have kept us from fishing the beaches but as the fall migration continues we’ve seen a push of large Snook come onto the flats. The fall mullet run has been inconsistent at times due tot he weather but as the winds subside, we will see large schools of Mullet migrate down the beaches. Snook, Jack Crevalles, Lady Fish and Tarpon, will be present in the trough looking to take advantage of the large schools. The mullet run has been nothing short of entertaining with most of the action taking place around docks, seawalls and mangrove shorelines. The Trout bite has been consistent when fishing top-water along the flats in the early morning. As the sun rises, match the hatch of the mullet run with DOA Bait-busters, Hogy Paddle tails and subsurface twitch-baits. Quite frankly…its another great month to fish along the Treasure Coast.
