Kayak Fishing: Sept. 2021

Inshore: Snook should start to push back into the rivers and lagoon this month. Look to fish bridges along their path as the snook will use them as stopping points. I like to use topwater plugs like a Heddon Spook early in the day and then try a D.O.A. TerrorEyz later on. The mullet run should kick off mid-month. Working those same lures along the edges of the schools should get you a bite. Pods of bait will be on the beach as well as getting pushed into the rivers and lagoon.

OFFshore: Kingfish and sailfish will be the most common catches for September. Live bait like goggle eyes and blue runners will work well. Slow troll these baits from 80 to 180 feet using a standard wire kingfish rig or 6/0 circle hook. There may be a few tunas around if you are looking to vertical jig. Keep moving to different depths to find which one seems to be holding them. Start in 200 feet and do not be afraid to search to 500 feet.
