Nearshore, the mangrove snapper fishing will remain strong close to shore as the fish wind down their summer spawn. As the water cools with an abundance of rain fall,we will see large groups of Spanish mackerel and Bonita within a stone's throw from the beach. The bait muds will hold spinner sharks, king fish, and the late migrating tarpon. And the boys will begin to be set in the beginning of October for stone crab season, which affords us great sight fishing opportunities for cobia and triple tail. There truly is not a better time to be fishing in South West Florida!
