Early October Fishing Report
Date: October 8, 2020
Fall fishing is wide open here in the Daytona Beach, Ponce Inlet and New Smyrna Beach area. Cooler temperatures, lower humidity and lower chances for rain make being on the water very comfortable this time of year. It’s not too hot, it’s not too cold, and the fishing is just right.
Big redfish are here is large numbers well above the year round residential population and the fishing has been great on pretty much every trip. It’s hard to beat that level of fishing quality!
The mullet run has started and with it come aggressive jack crevalle that are a mullets worst nightmare. From pitching live mullet to throwing topwater plugs and even fly, they provide some serious excitement for anglers of all skill levels.
Tarpon are still present but will begin migrating south as cooler days approach. Waves of fish moving south from the Carolinas and Georgia make pit stops at places like Ponce Inlet to feed, and if you’re lucky enough to be out there on the right day, the feeding events can be extraordinary.
This time of year for the next 6 weeks is the Goldilocks zone of temperature and fishing, don’t miss out!
