It seems lately the fishing has been good for a few days then it turns slow for a few more days, but we are catching fish. On the inshore bite, the Speckle trout bite is slowing up, but the Gray trout has picked up. There is still a lot of Red Drum around as well. Striped Bass season started October 1 in the sound with most fish being caught on eels or live bait. Around the inlet, Bluefish are still the best bet with a few Spanish Mackerel hanging around. Offshore the billfish bite is pretty much over. The Yellowfin tuna bite should be getting better since water temps are coming down, Last Sunday’s offshore trip yielded no Yellowfin, but all the Blackfin tuna we wanted. The only problem with the Blackfins is the were on the small size. My client kept enough to eat and the rest went back in the ocean, but what fun catching them on light tackle. Two and three anglers at a time were hooked up on the Blackfin, as fast as you could pull them in and reset, you were hooked again. The Dolphin bite has been steady with a few Wahoo mixed in. The bottom fishing for Tilefish and Sea Bass has been good too. The fall King Mackerel bite should start any time. Last year, the bite started in November, so it won’t be long. As I watch the weather out west and see snow falling, I hope we have a colder winter this year so the Striped Bass, AKA Rockfish will some up in numbers. It’s been several years since we have had a good run and we are past due for that. Give me a call or shot me an email if your ready to go fishing.
