Ponce Inlet offshore fishing report for October 22 to 28th.
Water is still green at the 100 feet of depth but it’s clearing up. Bottom fishing has been spectacular. Red eyes, red snappers, porgy’s, sea bass and groupers are biting pretty much anything you throw down to the bottom. On the troll the king mackerel are back and hungry. The spoon color of choice is green with a red reflective tape or silver with a green reflective tape seems to yield best results. Spanish mackerel are also thick with live bait bump trolling.
Mahi can still be found between 120′ to 250′, they are few and far in between but if you troll long enough you can put a couple in the box. Sailfish are starting to show up, they are active between 100′ and 300′. Floss rigs work best for dirty water situations.
Irma’s mess is finally clearing up in our area and fishing is getting back to normal.
