October – Boatless Fishing Forecast



Pompano-Pompano-Pompano will be here all Month the better days will be a NE wind at about 15 to 18 with a 3 to 5 foot seas, a little murky color to the water does not hurt. Bluefish should be in and out
most days, Spanish mackerel will also be along our coast, 2012 the best days for the Spanish Mackerel were the 3rd, 4th and 5th of November and it was an incredible run I wish we would see the same but I think that would be unrealistic because I have not seen something like that in many years, but who knows a storm can make all the difference and that is what it was last year.

We should also see a good snapper bite after any and all storms and rough water, the inlets and piers should all do well if we see the right conditions, just remember when it lays down is normally a good time to be fishing snapper.

King Mackerel, Cobia, Black tip Sharks are some of the larger species that will be cruising close to the coast.

Along the beach should be croakers, whitting, sand perch, margates, a chicken rig using #1 circle hooks and baited with pieces of shrimp should get plenty and this is a type of fishing the kids can do from the beach and a great way to spend a morning with the family and its not expensive. Keep in mind if you do decide to go to the beach to fish that a person over the age of 16 is required to have a shorebound fishing license.

What bait is around I would think it would be scarce as for Pilchard, Sardines, etc. Goggle eyes will be hanging out at the piers though and some of the last small schools of mullet should be heading south the first part of November.
