This Weeks Fishing Report
Fall is one of my favorite times of year to fish on the Indian River Lagoon Coast of Florida. We have and will experience some gorgeous fall weather over the next few weeks. Cooler temperatures, light winds and dry conditions set the stage for some excellent fishing. As the full moon approaches the mullet run should be reaching its peak, and predator species will begin to change their forage from fin fish to crabs and shrimp. Our first October cold front passed through our area last Tuesday bring cool dry air and northwest winds with it, and the fishing is picking up accordingly.
On my charter on Friday, anglers Cindy and Paul Turek from Orlando caught three respectable redfish and several dozen sea trout and ladyfish in 5 hours with the two largest reds measuring in at 31 and 34-in
Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the day on the water with clients Carol and Barry Holiday from Sanford, catching three redfish up to 36-inches along with about 25 sea trout.
