October has been a decent month so far with good catches of fly caught snook in and around Boca Grande. Early morning topwater gurglers are doing the trick and then switching to baitfish patterns later in the morning. Redfish have been sparse but we are getting decent shots at some backwater reds. Trout fishing is good with dailycatches of 10 to 20 fish.
There are still tarpon lingering about the harbor.
The False Albacore are on the beachbut show sporadically throughout the day, they are a blast on fly and we have had good success this last week. Water temps are falling from 88 degrees to around 80 and the fish seem to move better as does the bait. There is plenty of bait here in the Harbor and on the beach...Pelicans and Terns are dialed into a constant buffet of anchovies, herring and pilchards. Month should get better as water temps fall and rain slackens.
Good time to fish
