Well it's October here in St. Augustine Florida and I just want to say on behalf of Drop Down Sport Fish Charters that I'm sorry for not doing any offshore fishing charter reports but Since hurricane Irma i have been rebuilding my house and getting life back together. Now for the Fishing!! I had just had an 8hr bottom trip and it was good. The vermillion snappers we chewing and the red snapper were on fire. A mixed bag of other snapper also- mangos, yellow tail, lanes, muttons. A couple nice amberjack fish and a few fat trigger fish made the box plenty full of meat. Wahoos can be taken this time of year early in the morning. Look for a color change along the gulfstream and always keep an eye out for flyers. Wahoo can also school up offshore so if you catch one circle back around for a couple more passes. My favorite rig trolling is a horse ballyhoo on the planner rod. If you want go catch some quality offshore fish this month, October can be as good as any. Give us a call here in the nations oldest city St. Augustine Florida and let's go fishing on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters.
