September was an interesting month for us this year. The swarms of Mahi that are usually here to be able to count on have not shown up yet. Without a good Mahi bite, we have to resort to what’s left. I think last year was such a good Mahi season because they had closed a lot of the commercial Mahi fishery, perhaps leaving more for the recreational fishermen? That’s our best guess anyway.
The king fishing remained decent most of the month. Slow trolling live goggle eyes seemed to get the action on most days with fish up to 35 pounds. The tuna bite remained very good with football sized blackfins in the mix while we trolled small lures, and feathers such as Black Bart Micros. Bonito stayed plentiful and were a blessing on a lot of days the fishing was slow.
Moving Inshore the mullet have shown up and have been a lot of fun. Castnet a bunch of live mullet and cast and slow troll them around the outer edges of the schools provided good action from bluefish, Spanish mackerel, snook, jacks and tarpon.
Our KDW Tournament season wrapped up in September also, on a good note too. With 2 minutes left of fishing time we hooked and landed a 48# wahoo that took 1st place. We ended up fishing 5 tournaments, winning 1st place in three, 5th in one and 7th in the other, so, overall… not a bad season!
