Week 1 Report - October 2011
This week offshore, the bite picked up and the fish moved in closer with better size. Heading out to the north, Kings and ocasional wahoo were found in 80-150 feet. Trolling in 200-400 produced nice size dorado, wahoo and blackfin tuna.

On the wrecks and reefs, yellowtail snapper in the column and grouper off the bottom on cut bait or live pilchards.

Near shore snook, pompano, spanish and cero makerel, snapper, blue runners, bluefish and plenty of bait. Mullet are keeping the inhabitants happy. Sharks are biting too. Cut or live bait, swim bait and gotcha's are producing well.

Inshore, snook are around the inlets, bridges and docks on incoming and outgoing tides. Live and artificial shrimp on popping corks or spoons all are getting bites. 

In freshwater, slightly cooler weather has bass moving into deeper pockets and into the grass and pads. Top water and swim baits are producing good results.

Tight Lines and Screaming Drags!

Stay Salty my Friends!
