Capt. Jonathan Earhart predicts fishing trends from Wabasso Beach to Boca Raton, including Vero Beach, Ft. Pierce, Stuart, West Palm Beach and Lake Worth
September 24 - 26
It's that time of year again! Mullet run mayhem is in full force! Tarpon, snook, jacks, redfish, sharks, seatrout are all around feeding on mullet as of late. Beach action has been great in the right spots early mornings and late afternoons. Inshore has been stellar at first light, sunset and at night. Midday fishing will be a tad slower so be prepared to soak a bait 15-20 minutes in between bites.
Live chumming always helps if you have plenty of live bait to chum with to start a feeding frenzy. If you like to fish artificial baits, topwater plugs work wonders this time of year. Find a school of mullet and cast plugs or swim baits around edges of bait schools for steady action.
Mahi fishing has been on fire! Find a nice weedline outside 90' or all the way out to 1500' of water and troll or drift live baits for good action. Expect a few sailfish mixed in along with the occasional wahoo. Depths vary day by day, so your best bet is to look for ideal conditions with bait, weedlines, water edges running into one another, color changes, large floating debris, etc. These conditions will be favorable to your targeted pelagics. On the reef, bottom fishing has been steady for snapper, grouper, kingfish and stray cobia.
