September is here and while it’s still extremely hot fishing has been decent. Reds typically steal the show this month as the big schools group up to spawn. While schools haven’t been as consistent as a few years back but there are still some good fish to be caught. Mixed in with the Reds you find some monster Jack Crevalle which make for a great fight.
Snook fishing will remain strong this month and with the first cool down will only make the bite better. Mangrove Snapper also are holding strong with smaller bait still around and don’t forget about those great fighting Gag grouper that live inside Tampa Bay year round.
As we approach the later part of the month things should start to cool down. When the cool down happens you will start to see fish shift towards the fall transition. Fish will move to the potholes,oyster bars, and cuts in the backcountry. You will also start to notice the lower tides during this time of year. This is a great time to fish the edges, and potholes just adjacent to the surrounding flats. This is a great time of year to fish. Tightlines.
