Abaco Inshore Fishing Report & Forecast: September 2014

South Abaco-web

[dropcap]H[/dropcap]ello Anglers, August was very hot so we are looking forward to September! During the next few months the water temperatures will start to cool down and we will begin to see a lot larger schools of bonefish and permits on the flats. There will also be our friend, the Barry (the barracuda) along with the other usual suspects lemon, nurse and reef sharks. We may find a tarpon or permit and the yellowtail snappers are reappearing.

South Abaco Adventures team will target bonefish with 6- to10-pound spinning gear and 8- or 9-weight fly rods. The spinning rods we will tip with small pieces of conch meat or shrimp. The barracuda, with its sharp teeth, will be targeted with 15-pound spinning gear tipped with light green lures.
Inshore waters will be trolled for cubera snapper, amberjack and yellow jacks in 10 to 15 feet of water. We will troll with 30-pound conventional gear using red and black skirts.

I hope that you will take the time to come visit us in Sandy Point, Abaco to enjoy what we have to offer during 2014. Complete packages can be offered ranging from ground transportation to accommodations to meals during your South Abaco stay.
