September fishing report

Welcome to the September coastal angler fishing forecast for West Palm Beach, Singer Island, Palm Beach Shores and Juno Beach, Florida . The Wahoo bite was hot in August and it will still be good in September. The second week with the coming of the full moon

should be the best time to hi-speed troll. Your best bet is to get out early . The crack of dawn is the best time, and dragging a split tail mullet on a red and black skirt will prove to be successful . Some of the best Wahoo fishing is from the breaker to the end of the condos in water 100' to 250' .

For the reef junkies the bottom bite will be on from lost Tree Village to the Juno pier. If your a guy that like to put fish in the cooler try fishing a chicken rig. This is a two hook rig with small hooks when tipped with squid chunks will catch everything that swims on the reef. If you don't know how to make a rig yourself , check out UTube for the answer. Sometimes fishing the reef you will see "File Fish "swimming up to the boat. These fish make great table fare but are challenging to hook. When you get one hooked get in the boat fast, they are very good at jumping off the hook. Good luck!

For the inshore anglers the mullet run will start this month with hungry Predators in tow. Tarpon, large Jacks and even Spinner sharks will be crashing schools cruising along the beach. When heading out to fish don't forget your cast net. You will get your best bite on the outside of the school or below. Light tackle is the way to fish, Light leaders and small hooks should produce the best bites.

Well, good luck and remember " You can't catch them from the couch" - Capt Weston Russell /
