All is well here in East Central Florida after Hurricane Irma, the water is high, but is pretty clear following the big east wind pushed in ocean water to the Indian River backcountry and Mosquito Lagoon, the fall mullet run is going on with lots of bait fish schools, inshore game fish moving in on their migration towards the south, Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, Ladyfish, Tarpon in addition to our resident Seatrout, Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, Snook, and more. Fun fishing charters continue, both before and now after the storm, just a couple days before Irma’s arrival, was out on the flats of Mosquito Lagoon with regular client Vic from Orlando on his annual September trip with me, hunting Redfish, poling the grass flats, and catching some Seatrout on live baits off the edges on drop offs, Family friend Angel caught a 25” Red along a scenic old Florida palm tree lined shoreline……………….

New clients from Indiana and The Villages in Florida came out a few days after the hurricane past through, we started out in the backwaters, light tackle free line fishing, catching a little slower than would be usual with the flood level water and all after the storm, but still catching a bunch of Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and Snappers, by late morning we switched tactics to the flats hunting Redfish catching a few spot tails, Denise got a nice Red with an extra spot……………………
