10.17.14 Fishing Report

This weekend’s marine forecast looks very fishy and the weather is beyond beautiful! The Southeast Atlantic Ocean should have some chop to get the fish fired up and ready to get hooked!

OFFSHORE-
Fishing for Dolphin is still very sizeable and consistent from 6-15 miles offshore and with the east winds pushing them in closer; they have been hooked trolling with ballyhoo, bonita strips or squid which are all good bets for Dolphin bites. Keep a few small feathers out as well for a chance to hook up a small blackfin tuna. The blackfin tuna reports have been around the size of a football. Sailing season has started and the sailfish may show up this weekend too!
Bottom fishing for snapper keeps things interesting with scattered mutton snappers, nice yellowtails, and a few mangrove snappers.
Along the edge, keep an eye out for any mullet schools because they could be holding good numbers of dolphin, sails and kingfish with occasional wahoo, which are very easy targets at the point!


INSHORE/SURF/PIER-
Outgoing Tide at dusk in all inlets of the Southeast of Florida is the single best time of year for tarpon fishing at the inlets in October! Now is the time to hook up some tarpon during the evenings, casting with live mullet out around the mouths of the inlets looking for the mullet schools. Snook fishing remains very good at night around the bridge areas and our winter species are showing back up around the grassy flats, such as the flats in Hobe Sound and Munyon Island, which are now holding some fish, local anglers recommend going after some sea trout! Pompano fishing is doing well around the piers as the weather cools.

Time to go Fishing!!!
