October fishing in SWFL

Trip Summary

This October stayed very warm as we finish off the month with 90 degree temperatures. Its still warm, sunny and beautiful here in Southwest Florida. This hasn’t slowed down the fish from moving into their fall patterns. My October fishing charters were consistent throughout the month. My clients caught a lot of mangrove snapper, snook, jack crevalle, trout, and spanish mackerel throughout the month. October was pretty windy throughout the month only allowing us to run offshore a few times. We were rewarded when we did make it offshore, with constant action and a big variety of fish. The triple tail are showing back up along the coast and then while fishing nearshore structure, we had no shortage of snapper and grouper to keep us busy. The king fish are showing back up on the structure as well and while looking for kingfish we even landed an African Pompano. That African Pompano was a first for me and was a very cool experience I won’t soon forget. There were also huge Barracuda patrolling the structure that were caught while trolling lures over the structure. These fish are extremely aggressive and cause huge explosions on top of the water while chasing the moving lure.
