Nassau Sound

Nassau Sound – November Fishing Report


The fun fish have left the building! Great time for start of the backcountry fishing, many red fish will start to invade the flats as the October mullet run forces the bait to the warmer southern waters. A TBS Jig paired with the shrimp or mudminnow could be the combination to many different fish in the shallow waters. Using shrimp you can catch black drum redfish, trout, flounder, and sheepshead, and just about anything. Mud minnows, do not work as well to catch sheepshead or black drum so if you’re in an area that can produce those, think about using shrimp. The last half of the outgoing tide can produce well as the fish get pulled from hard to reach areas. Outflows & rips around oyster bars & structure is a good place to soak a TBS jig & bait combo. Use a 30 inch piece of fluorocarbon as leader. I find 15-20 lb best. Many different species can be caught like this. Flounder will still be in the mix. Fishing around structure with a jig & mud minnow or finger mullet can be a ticket. Structure towards local inlets can hold fish. If you are after trout, standard methods will still be producing. lure fishing will be good, as the water cools & the last of the bait heads south, work areas like

Edges of holes,deeper bends, &  remaining bait and mullet pods. See you next month.🐟
