Fall Fishing Kicking Into High Gear

1 post in this topic

Fall fishing is definitely kicking into high gear. There are loads of finger mullet in the Bay, at the Inlets, and along the beach. Tarpon and bluefish are finding it very easy to keep their belly’s full. Meanwhile, offshore dolphin are making their Fall push through the area. There have been weed lines in the 500 – 650 foot area along with lots of floating debris. The fish range in size from schoolies to gaffers. Closer in, there have been some good catches of sailfish.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Jan Maizler got in on some bluefish action on the flats inside of Haulover Inlet. The fish were busting schools of finger mullet that were flooding into the Bay with the incoming tide. We worked several more Bay spots where we saw plenty of exploding action with bait fish schools, however, we had no takers on our offerings. The next move was to Government Cut. Out went two finger mullet that we slow trolled. Within a few minutes, we had a nice size tarpon pop at one of our baits and miss. I turned around and moved back over the same area and we got our reward in the form of a screaming drag on the Penn Conquer 8000 spinning reel. The fish gave us several jumps, long runs, and surging rolls. Jan countered each move of the tarpon and kept up the steady pressure. Eventually the pressure began to take its toll on the fish. The leader came into the rod guides and back out several times before the tarpon finally calmed down enough for me to grab the leader and have some control of the fish. We took numerous in water pictures of the 50# tarpon before sending it on its way. The tarpon thanked me by kicking off with a slap of its tail and splashing me.<o:p></o:p>
