Fall Fishing throughout St. Joseph Sound

As the cooler months approach, many inshore gamefish will move into the shallow grassflats throughout the St. Joseph Sound. Speckled Trout and Redfish will lay up in skinny water to hunt baitfish, shrimp and other crustaceans that are the major part of their Winter diet. The water along oyster bars and shallow docks will be filled with a buffet of food and become prime staging grounds for these predatory fish to lay in ambush. The southern facing edges will also hold heat better on cooler mornings and allow for some great sightfishing opportunities. Live select shrimp, Pumpkin Jig Slammrs and MirrOlure MirrOdines are great baits for targeting these species. The spoil islands along the intracoastal waterway are key target areas on lower winter tides , as 100’s of fish will stack up to feed on moving tides. It is a great time of year to get family and friends out and enjoy the Florida weather along our Gulf Coast.
