Boatless fishing Forecast

Well August is a hot one and fishing is best early morning and evening, we are only a month from the start of the bait and mullet migrations. From here out on those times when storms come close the snapper will move in and fishing will pick up for sure after the storms.

King Mackerel, Cobia, Bonita , Spanish and CeroMackerel will be in better Numbers to the north of the county on our northern piers. Southeren piers will see more Snapper, Yellow jacks, and we will see a few kings and Bonita, the Spanish Mackerel will not be thick but we should see them starting to show up. Mangroves have been thick under the piers and should continue through this month. This month can also be a good month for Barracuda, Tarpon. Permit from the beaches and the southern piers will be the special treat of this month.

By the end of August our resident mullet will start to move and stack around the inlets and Jacks, Tarpon and any other predators will be in and around these mullet for a free dinner, my favorite inlet is Port everglades and now that the south jetty is open in John Lloyd park this will be a great place, but do not forget about the north side it is a walk because parking is not easy but well worth the walk.

Sardines should be around the northern end and pilchard, greenies and some resident mullet should be moving to the south.
