EPIC Fishing Forecast for September and October

Welcome to the EPIC Fishing Forecast for September and October.

Over the past few months we have had excellent and consistent fishing for yellowfin tuna there have been almost every day catches for over a year.  Our billfish numbers have been a bit low and spotty since May but there have been a few sailfish and some Marlin around.

We have had good inshore fishing for roosterfish, snappers and amberjack’s, though the deep dropping for grouper and silky snapper has been a bit slower than last year.

September and October is often the start of the arrival of large numbers of mahi-mahi / dorado in this area which tend to be peak in October and November and taper off after that.

Yellowfin tuna should remain very common, and it is often one of the best times a year to see larger yellowfin tuna over 100 pounds and even possibly over 200.


Sailfish numbers will likely remain low until they start showing up in better numbers in November, but we expect a good run of blue and striped marlin starting sometime around September and continuing into December.

Inshore fishing will remain good for roosterfish, snappers, mackerel, jacks and more, which are available year round
