September 2015 Space Coast Fishing Report

Welcome to this months fishing report for the Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River Lagoon, and Banana River Lagoon. Water conditions in all 3 Lagoons are high and dirty due to all the recent downpours. The fish have been pushed way in the back country which is where I prefer to fish anyways to get away. Clean water has been hard to come by but with a trained eye and a good pair of Amber polarized sunglasses, you should be able to get some sight fishing in.

The mullet have started their Fall migration up and down the beach and in the Lagoons around the Space Coast which has made fishing really good this month. Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Jacks, Sharks, Bluefish and Spanish Macks have been following the bait off the beach.

Inshore, the redfish have been fired up and plentiful, juvenile tarpon are still lingering around, sea trout are starting to lay around in the sand, and some snook can be seen cruising along tight to the mangroves. Conditions for sight fishing is excellent if the sun is out. Fish have been aggressive and happy to eat if you can put a fly or lure in front of one.

David and his father Jim from Louisiana got into some good redfish action on topwater lures.

Jack from South Carolina got into some good tarpon action this day. Watching them smash surface flies was so much fun. We also got to witness a spectacular rocket launch from the ramp that morning.

Fall is here which means cooler weather and excellent fishing! One of my favorite seasons to target big redfish.
