September 2009

September is here and so is snook season. The snook fishing should be great for the next couple of months. With rain storms on us everyday, and the fall mullet run about to kick off we should see some explosive action on the flats this month. Fishing the Indian River Lagoon will be our main target for snook. Anglers can look forward to early morning top fishing water to produce good results. The night fishing will be just as productive for anglers seeking the big snook on the lighted docks and bridges.

The smaller tarpon in the 20-40 pound range are starting to get a little thicker in the creeks and rivers around the Sebastian area on the Indian River Lagoon. Fishing for them has been best at first light with live finger mullet, or a sinking plug like a rattle trap. Soon we will be able to find them roaming the open flats chasing the schools of finger mullet, and pinfish.

Redfish in the Mosquito Lagoon are still grouped up in big numbers and in full spawn.The trick these past couple of weeks was finding the baits pods on the shallow flats and casting small top water plugs around the bait pods. As the sun starts to rise the sight fishing is the main ticket to targeting big redfish on the gin clear flats. We were lucky enough to dodge two major storms. Let's hope our luck holds out for the rest of the season.
