September 2020 update
September 2020 has finally arrived. Summer flew by and here we are encroaching on early fall. The past 2 weeks have been challenging to say the least. The next several days continue on with this pattern. We have definitely made up for any lack of rainfall as of late, and the strong east-northeast winds will continue for a few more days. We are forecasted for a slight cool down over the next couple of weeks, so I’d expect inshore and bull red fishing to begin to really heat up.
This past week we saw a solid mullet run and plenty of hungry predators taking advantage. Tarpon, jacks, speckled trout, redfish, and stout flounder have all been feasting on these mullet whenever conditions allow us to safely get out on the water. Flood tides are up the next couple of days, so hopefully we can sneak out a few times and catch some tailing redfish and blast a few marsh hens. Next week as the big tides (and hopefully weather) subsides it will be time for solid inshore fishing and bull reds as well. Hopefully we also have a few more tarpon to harass as well.
Capt. Aaron’s September 2020 fishing report
We still have some hot days to go in September, but the mornings are getting a little cooler. Getting out early for the morning low tides targeting schooled up creek reds is still doing well and is only going to get better from here on out. This week coming up is all about the flood tides! We have some really big tides coming our way, and those reds are going to be all over the flats in search of fiddler crabs and the occasional fly that may happen to get tossed in front of them. The past few months I have seen many many happy redfish tailing on the floods, and I’m expecting this set to be just as good if not better. All summer has been pretty much all late evening high tides, however this month will be the morning/mid day highs that I prefer.
Our kids and family fishing trips have still been rocking. Sharks of various sizes and species as well as stingrays are always plentiful! Whiting are also picking up with the cooling water temperatures. It’s getting about that time for the bull reds to start showing their face in the golden isles also. They are always a nice treat to catch when out bottom fishing. Fall is coming soon along with cooler weather and the fishing is going to be great!
