October Florida Report by Stan Lupo

.

.

October is a tough month to fish south Florida.  It's still summer fishing with lots of rain and high water.  The fish were few and far between.

.

I caught a nice pompano at Sea Grape Drive (Rt. 41 Tamiami Trail), and jumped a 4-5 ft tarpon (both at the riffles by the bridge).  I caught 7 small (male) snook under the bridge no. 77.  Then, I caught a nice snook (about 24-25 inches) up on Turner River Road.  I had seen her splash across the river under the mangroves and cast to her.  I watched her follow my fly and grab it -- truly a pleasurable catch.

.

I also fished the bridges in the Keys (Islamorada and Marathon), where I hooked a Jack that was immediately swallowed by a large tarpon.  I jumped him before he broke me off.  I also caught blue runners and pinfish, there.

.

In addition, I fished the beach at Ft. Lauderdale (down from the fishing pier) and caught butterfish, yellowtail and needlefish, and cast to some large snook.

28Oct07 - It's hard to believe October is nearly finished and I have yet to hit the water.  It's all good though as I've been tying many salmon and steelhead patterns.  Reports are that steelhead fishing in Pulaski, NY should pickup due to the recent rains.  Next month...striper fishing!

07Oct07 - Tipulides (craneflies) have been busily mating the last two weeks.  If you've gone running for your life because a giant mosiquito was chasing you, it probably was one of these.  There're not so bad and trout like them too..
