St George Island / Carrabelle / Alligator Point Fishing Report: Oct 2013


[dropcap]T[/dropcap]ime to get the smoker going and get ready to make some fresh mullet dip. Then break out the crackers and enjoy! There are plenty of nice mullet moving in, and you can find them in Alligator Bay and around the beach. Bring a cast net, some ice and a cooler.

Also, the Red drum have been showing up more and more lately. It don’t get no better than catching a strong fighting redfish with light tackle and light pound test. Trout are not too shy right now either. Even a few Gator trout can be caught.

Offshore (close and deep), the cobia are not as thick as last year, but are definitely still hanging around. Spanish and kings love big gold spoons and even free lined live bait. Offshore, there are still grouper not too far, though they are very picky eaters right now. Bring a variety of different baits; some days, butterflyed LYs, live pinfish, cut ruby lips, or chunks of mullet are preferred. Sometimes, triggering a feeding frenzy with squid or small pieces of cut bait and catching ruby lips and sea bass will draw larger game fish in and increase your fish box. Plus, sea bass and ruby lips are excellent fried on a sandwich with tomatoes, lettuce and cheese! Give us a call anytime to book your Alligator Point fishing trip! Tight lines, be safe and have some good times out there!
