|What you can expect to catch and when
Inshore, trout and redfish are available on the flats. At night you can find snook around docks, attracted by the lights. Spanish Mackerel, bluefish and pompano are in pretty thick. We can find some early Jumbo Jack Crevalle on calm days and Spinner sharks
will be on the beaches. Amberjacks are on nearshore reefs and wrecks. The winter nighttime tarpon bite in Miami is in full swing. Febuary the Spanish Mackeral are peaking and flyfishing for sharks becomes more consistent. As always there is a good bite of trout and redfish. Cobia start showing up too. Moving into early spring, shark and jack crevalle
fishing is at its best. Cobia fishing continues to improve as does the night snook fishing.
Springtime jack crevalle and shark fishing is in full swing now. Night time snook fishing is very good and the cobia continue to bite. The kingfish start to show up with the bait closer to the beach. In May the
kingfish bite is excellent and night time snook fishing is still real good. Look for the tarpon to show up around Palm Beach and Stuart on their northerly migration towards the end of May. June is peak tarpon time from Boca Raton up to Ft. Pierce.
Daytime snook fishing improves and there is always a good trout and redfish bite on the flats. It's fly fishing time, as the bonito start showing up in early summer.
With summer comes some of the hottest fishing, the trout and redfish are strong, snook fishing is off the charts with big fish in the inlets and along the beaches from Ft. Pierce & Stuart down to Boynton Beach and Boca Raton.
Flyfishing for the offshore species is in full swing. August sees the last of the tarpon migration. Bonito and kingfish remain a good bet and with light winds, fly fishing is awesome. There is always the chance of hooking up to a sailfish while hunting kingfish and bonito.
Early September brings the mullet run and fishing can be phenomenal. Most everything that swims out there loves mullet, so if the mullet are here, tarpon, snook, trout, redfish, shark, jack crevalle, bluefish and kingfish will all have mullet on the menu.
Up and down the coast from Ft. Pierce to Boynton Beach and Palm Beach, in October, everything is munching on the mullet. Fishing for tarpon, snook, trout, redfish, shark, jack crevalle and kingfish is still hot, and night time
tarpon and snook fishing is good. As November rolls around it's the last chance to catch some of the end of the mullet run action. As the mullet move out things transition into our winter pattern. Nighttime snook fishing is still good. Pompano start to show towards the end of
the month. Snook, trout, ladyfish, jack crevalles & bluefish are available on the flats. We finish off the year with spanish mackerel, bluefish and pompano making a good showing. If nice calm conditions prevail you may be able to get some “just before Christmas” Jumbo Jacks. Early spinner sharks are also a possibility.
Amberjacks are on nearshore reefs and wrecks. The winter Tarpon nighttime bite in Miami is just getting going. Snook are on the dock lights at night.
