The Catch
Jack Crevalle
Snapper (Mangrove)

Fall is officially here, although not much has changed with the weather or the fishing. We continue to get out as early as possible to beat the heat, and find many hungry fish ready to eat. Redfish, snook, mangrove snapper, jack crevalle, and juvenile tarpon are all being caught on nearly every trip! Snook are still one of the more common catches, as they are for most of the warmer months, anglers can expect to catch 10-20 snook in a morning trip. Our average snook is around 20 inches long, with the occasional large fish at 30+ inches. Redfish continue to impress anglers on a daily basis. As the numbers of redfish in the area at their highest this time of year, and they aren’t small! The smallest fish caught in the last month was around 22 inches, and most of the others are 25-33 inches long.
