September Best Bets

Trout Bite Remains On The Slower Side Due To Warmer Waters!

Well folks with the water staying on the warm side the Trout fishing remains slow. Although there are limits of Trout being caught you have to be in the right place at the right time to catch these fish. One thing I’ve noticed this summer out of the Econfina and Aucilla Rivers is the grass situation! The other day I scouted back towards Spring Warrior while out on a charter and on the way back I noticed that there was just about NO grass on bottom until I got back to the Aucilla side of the Econfina River. I guess with all the dark and fresh water we’ve had earlier in the year it has killed the sea grass off for this year. But on the other hand the darker water has kept the water temperatures cooler and therefore kept the Trout in shallow waters longer than normal this year. Limits of fish are still being caught in the 4.5 to 6 feet of water ranges while others have been catching limits as far out as 11 to 12 feet of water. The deeper waters are where you would expect the fish to be during this time of year since those waters are cooler on bottom.

The Red fishing has also slowed down but fishing early mornings using the top water plugs will usually produce a good mess of these tasty fish. Fishing the creek mouths using cut bait can also produce Reds if you can keep the Catfish beat off your bait! Also don’t run past those oyster bars that are off the grass line without casting in on them, sometimes the Reds seem to hang out there since there are so many folks fishing in close these days.

The mullet have seem to be scattered back out the last couple of weeks compared to the way they were the end of July and first of August. There were so many mullet it didn’t take anytime to get your limit with the cast net once you found where they were. I always preach not to leave the ramp without your cast net and you would know that’s just what I did, and when we got out on the water the mullet were everywhere. So from now on my net stays in the boat!

Best bets for the month of September will be to continue to fish the deeper waters 10 to 12 feet  for the Trout. Also for those folks fishing in shallower waters when you make your drifts and catch a couple of fish run back and make that same drift again. Sometimes it’s just a matter of making several drifts over the same area to get your limit. Fish early morning hours before the sun gets overhead for the Reds using top water plugs and also try the outer bars using the plugs and gold spoons. Remember scallop season will close this month.
