The inshore fishing for Red fish is excellent right now. The fall months produce the best Bull Red fishing all year. If your into catching big reds on top water then this is the time of year to go. Over Labor Day weekend they hit just about anything you threw at them. We were tripling and quading up with four anglers on board. October has a another name down here in Venice and it is called Red October, for good reason, and that being the amount of red fish that are caught every year.
Speckled Trout and Flounder Fishing
The speckled-trout and flounder fishing are making a showing as they usually do in late summer/early fall. September and October are the two best months of the year for flounder fishing in this area so they will be plentiful usually up until the first real cold-front. However, that same cold-front will push the specks into the canals and ditches that branch off of the Mississippi River making for some incredible fishing. If you like numbers, September and October are the months to go.
