September Fishing Report

Updated: Sep 14, 2020

The Fall season has finally started and so has the fall mullet run. The mullet are up north near Cape Canaveral right now but will soon be in Sebastian. There are big schools in the lagoon showing up from Turkey Creek to Grant, FL as well. The mullet run is so much fun. It brings all the predators out which produces a lot of action for us anglers.

The inshore bite has been really good the last few weeks. We're catching lots of smaller snook and slot redfish fishing along the mangrove shorelines. We've also been fishing some docks and underwater ledges loading up with some nice medium size mangrove snapper when trying to get a bag of fillets. Most of the time I have my customers throw live bait and cut bait depending on their level of casting skill. You can easily lose a lot of lures fishing the mangroves if you don't know how to skip a bait. The lures I love to use this time of year are Slayer Inc. paddle tails with a 1/4oz jig head or the go to DOA shrimp. For top water I like to throw a Mirrolure Top Pup in the early mornings when it's glass flat.
