The weather will be the key factor here. Cool fronts will chill down the water. This will move many of the fish deep in the backwaters. The most common species to target during this time are trout, redfish, sheepshead, ladyfish and black drum. If the water warms up a little you can also see a few snook show up on the end of your line.
With the water warming up, so will the fishing. You will have opportunities to catch some of the biggest fish of the year. The fish that were in the backwaters will start to transition to the outer points. The most targeted species are snook, redfish, tripletail and tarpon. Pompano and trout are also very active during this period as well.
This time of year fishing early or late in the day gets you the best results. Snook and mangrove snapper around the docks and mangrove points work well during this time of year. It is also a good time to try your luck at a big shark or a Goliath grouper. For those of you that like to throw lures, this is a great time for topwater fishing on the beach as well.
October and November prove to be a good time for redfish. Some of the bigger bull redfish show during their fall migration. Along with redfish, a few tripletails and tarpon will be moving through as well. If the water stays relatively warm the snook bite can be good as well during this period.;
Captain Larry Birt's fishing buddy, nine-year-old Cobh Coogan, caught his first-ever snook using artificial bait (Gulp Shrimp). The snook measured at 39 inches and 18 pounds. Coogan also caught a 37-inch, 15-pound snook on the same day. He reeled in both at Cape Romano on Memorial Day.
