Trip Summary

Well I have been talking about it in the past few reports and it has finally happened. The bait has made its return to the bay and the fishing is Red Hot!!! We are having no problem filling the 40 gallon live well with plenty of bait and then finding fish to feed them to. The Mutton snapper bite is picking up and should only get better as we get further into October. We have been catching plenty of fish in the 8-10lb range and on light tackle they are a ton of fun to catch. The Mangrove snapper bite has also been very good as well and we are catching some nice fish in the 15-20 inch range. The other stars of the show have been the Yellow jacks that come through in swarms eating anything in their path. They have been in the 5-12lb range and on light tackle they provide plenty of drag screaming action. October is one of the best months of the year to fish so don't miss out on the fun and BOOK YOUR TRIP TODAY!!!!! Capt. Alex Geneteau

This time of the year the fishing and weather are at there best and lately it has not disappointed. The weather has been almost perfect for this time of the year and we are not even breaking a sweat while we are out on the water. The best bite has been during the day in Biscayne Bay. The bait is still around and plentiful and we are having no problem finding it and then filling the livewell with more then we need. Lately the snappers have been the stars of the show and have not disappointed. We have been catching some really nice Mangrove snapper up to 5lbs and on light tackle they are a blast. We have also been catching out fair share of Mutton snappers but most have been just a little to small to keep but we have caught some big ones as well. If you are looking for non stop action from some toothy critters the Barracudas are making there move into the bay and we have had some exciting action from them. In my opinion the Barracuda is the most understated game fish that we have, they are aggressive, pull drag, have teeth, and are a blast to catch. In my opinion you couldn't ask for anything more from a fish. The Yellowjacks have also been around lately and when you can get them fired up they are like a pack of piranhas eating everything that swims and it is a lot of fun to watch them chase down and eat your bait off the surface of the water. If Tarpon is something you are looking to target then the wait is almost over. Any time now the shrimp should start running at night and the Tarpon will not be far behind. It is primarily a night time bite this time of the year and you get to see the glitz and glam of Miami from the water at night while doing battle with the mighty silver king. What else could you ask for. The fishing is good so don't miss out and BOOK YOUR TRIP TODAY!!!!
