Think like a Fish..

Many an eager fisherman's approach to fishing is to simply chuck his lure out there and hope to catch a fish, and it is thought that catching a fish or even a big one is luck. I call this "chuck & hope", and it is my belief that whilst one can get a lucky fish, it was only because unknowingly you put the right lure in the right place at the right time and in the right way. There should be a technical or scientific approach to the way you target fish.

Trout, reds, pompano, bluefish, Spanish mackerel and more in Sarasota Bay and snook around docks and bridges in the ICW and close to passes should be plentiful in October. In the coastal gulf, little tunny, Spanish mackerel, tripletail and tarpon should also be good options.
