Ten Thousand Islands - Saltwater Fishing Report
The fall migration is in effect, creating balls of bait up and down the coast.
Along the beaches or back in the mangroves fishing has been really good.
First light off the beaches, tarpon have been decimating the schools of mullet. Cartwheeling out of the water, hurling themselves in the air feeding on the tightly packed schools.
In the back along the mangroves at the last half of the outgoing tide, has provided some great sight fishing for red fish and snook.The reds are in good numbers ranging from 20-30 inches.
Snook have been pretty aggressive under the lights with double digit outings.
Catch the Fall bite before we swing into winter.Fish are feeding well fattening up for winter.
Ten Thousand Islands Fishing Forecast:
With cooler days water will start to clear, and the bait will keep pushing through our area before the serious fronts start to roll through.
red fish, snook, or anything else that eats the fly.
