Well, we are all in one piece from hurricane Irma, and it’s time to get back out there. Snook season started September 1st, and the first 4 days the snook action was unbelievable in the Sebastian Inlet. They definitely felt the effects of the pressure from Irma and started feeding heavy. Also, after this major storm, and with the Mullet run happening, I'm expecting the fishing to be on fire. I spoke with my brother who is also a fishing guide in the central east region, and he said he got to run the beach a day before the storm reached us and that the mullet were stacked up all along from Ft. Pierce up to Vero Beach. With the Mullet run there will be plenty of tarpon cruising up and down the coast. If you have never tangled with a tarpon, just say the word and I will break out the heavy equipment. Moving in with the mullet we will also have schools of bull reds coming through. Late September into October and November will be prime months for red fishing inside the Sebastian Inlet. If you want to catch a 30+ pound red, simply put, there's no better time than now.
