Fishing in Biscayne BaySeptember 07, 2016
It's been a couple weeks since my last post but not much has changed except snook season is now open and we can take one home for dinner, as long as he is in the 28-32 inch slot range. The snook bite is still red hot and we are having no problem finding fish and catching them. But in the next month or so that will change as our water temps start to drop and a lot of the snook will push for deeper waters and will be harder to find and catch. The tarpon bite is picking back up as the annual mullet run is starting to get under way. The mullet are starting to move south down the beaches and not to far behind are hungry tarpon and spinner sharks. The last trip we had we caught 2 tarpon and lost one more. Right now most of the fish are in the 20-50lb range but once the water temps drop and the shrimp start running the big boys will show up again to play. We are also starting to see the return of the pilchards to Biscayne bay which means the fishing will be heating up during the day real soon. We have been catching some snappers and jacks during the day but most have been average size with some nice ones mixed in. By the end of September/ beginning of October the bigger jacks and snappers should show up and the fun will begin with non stop action all day. September and October in my opinion are the two best months out of the year to fish so if you have been thinking about booking a fishing trip now is a great time to do it. There are still plenty of dates available so don't wait BOOK YOUR TRIP TODAY!!!!!
