Fishing Changes With The Seasons

Fall is here, at least the South Florida version of it. In Fort Lauderdale fall means shorter days, fewer afternoon thunderstorms, slightly cooler and dryer air and a change in fishing patterns.

As we move through October fishing becomes better and better. Trolling offshore will produce more consistent catches of bonito, mahi, kingfish and wahoo. October is when the cold fronts start moving through South Florida and is usually the start of sailfish season.

Bottom fishing also picks up. Our local wrecks and reefs will begin to produce better catches of vermillion snapper, bararcuda, amber jack’s and sharks.

Yesterday was a good example. Anglers fishing offshore of Fort Lauderdale with me aboard the Reel Work yesterday had fun catching blackfin tuna and spanish mackerel. Later we stopped on a wreck and caught some nice vermillion snapper.
