[dropcap]S[/dropcap]eptember is here and the days are getting shorter and the water will be getting cooler. While Bimini is certainly known for its bonefishing, there is another prize that you may want to target – permit. September will bring great permit action for the angler looking for something a little different. The fish at this time of the year will typically be in the 30-pound range with some even larger. Go get some!
Cooling waters will bring more bones onto the flats during the day for longer periods of time. There will still be some hanging in the channels and areas of “moving water”. You will find more “singles” and “doubles” cruising out onto the flats and more “tailing” and “mudding”. Besides bones and permit, don’t forget about tarpon, ‘cuda and jack that can all bend a rod. Nearshore reef action will include the typical variety of mutton fish, yellowtail, grouper, triggers and more. Come and get in on the action and all that Bimini has to offer.
