Mid - Late October fishing report <)))<
October has brought a mixed bag of weather and fishing,I have seen the best surface action in years and also some down right great sight fishing in near record heat and a 8 lb bluefish after scraping ice from the poling platform and casting deck, there has been some windy days and some glassy evening sessions. After all its mid October now in the northern range and what fish you find day to day- enjoy- the colors on the island are beautiful and you pretty much have the water to yourself I did 6 guide trips in a row without seeing a single angler at any point during the trip, just how I like it!!! Overall you have to be on there spot they are no longer spread out and are in full on schooled up mode and on the move, the fish we found sight fishing where ultra skittish and swimming very tight head to tail, dark backed and when they decided to eat the group would jump in on it as a team effort- aka mini blitz,  there is plenty of bait and water temps are reasonable  to keep fish around but as we all know our population up here is not that big and when they feel it time to leave our
season becomes day to day and thats where we are at.. enjoy the search!!!
