HEAVE HO

Posted By Nick Honachefsky, September 25, 2017

 The huge heave, pounding surf, and 75 degree water temperatures from the remnants of Hurricane Jose contributed to minimal surf participation this week. However, bayside anglers were able to tuck in and still pull on quality chopper blues up to 10 pounds. Blackfishing remains top notch along the backwater structure piles, bridges and piers. From all reports, it still appears that mullet are hanging in the backwaters, so hopefully we get some cooler nights and friendlier surf to push them out into the surfwash. Best bet to wrap up the month of September is the blackfishing from the backwater piers and bridge abutments. With warm temps and hurricane seas, the mullet run seems to be delayed, but as we move into October, watch for the first few real cold snap nights to really spark the mass exodus of bait out of the back and into the ocean. It’s going to happen fast, so be prepared to take the days off you need to when you see it happening.
