September is always a tough month for trolling. Water temperatures are extremely high this year. If you insist on trolling, go slower and use natural baits and dredges. This is the time of year to enjoy the calm water, cut the engines, drift and break out the spinning rods. Best bait is squid, tuna belly strips, and barracuda chunks. Nothing more satisfying and fun as sitting in a quiet cockpit with friends and family reeling in bottom fish. Be prepared with the fry daddy and peanut oil to cook up a huge plate of mutton snappers, strawberry groupers, and yellow tail snappers. Does not get any better than that.

Catch ‘em up!
