White Marlin Don’t Know Its October

White Marlin Don’t Know Its October

It was hard to believe that today was the first day of October for several reasons.  One, it was 80 some degrees, two, there were a bunch of boats drifting the east channel, and three, the white marlin fishing was insane.  Several boats fishing down in the Washington canyon had double digit looks at white marlin and there were lots of fish caught.  Throw in that it was another awesome day of mahi fishing and you’ve got a great start to my favorite month of the year.

Captain Joe Drosey of Rhonda’s Osprey had another terrific day in the canyons today fishing on flat calm seas.  Captain Joe put his crew on nine white marlin releases and some really nice mahi on today’s trip.

Ocean bottom fishing was pretty insane as well today with two reports of boat limits from the ocean going party boat fleet.  Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star and Captain Chris Mizurak of the Angler both reported boat limits of sea bass for their clients.  Captain Chris also had flounder, bluefish, triggerfish, at least one nice mahi and another balloon for Blume’s Balloon Round Up.

 

Flounder fishing in the back bay has been good the past few days on the top of the high tide.  Anglers using live mullet and bunker are having the best luck, but there are plenty of fish being caught on minnows, shiners and Gulp.  Captain Drew Zerbe and Captain Mike of the Tortuga have been using hard to come by shiners and squid to get the job done.
