Fishing Amelia Island Report – Change of Seasons

It’s been a while since Captain Scott with Pipe Dream Charters has had the time to let everyone know what’s biting.

But with the change of seasons, the coming of Fall weather and cooling water temperature, has got me excited for an exciting Fall and early winter bite.

Trolling for Pelagics

Two men in boat holding a fish while Deep Sea Fishing Off Amelia Island, FL.In a few weeks the Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo will be making their way back south to escape the cold waters of the North Atlantic.

Trolling for these pelagics will get the excitement going listening to one of these fish trying to spool the reel.

Then top the day off bottom fishing the ledge for Grouper, Mutton, and Mangrove Snapper and Triggers.

Bottom fishing nearer to shore, Vermillion Snapper, Amberjack, Triggers, and Grouper make a great way to fill the box.

Inshore Fishing Adventures

For those anglers who do not want to venture so far offshore and have a shorter day, the Jetties is a great way to have some super Fall action with Bull Reds, Black Drum, and Sharks.

Recently, the Grouper bite has been great with Black and Gag Grouper within 25 miles offshore.

Mix in some Vermillion Snapper, Triggers, and Amberjack to fill the box, and then some big Barracudas for some fast action.

Summer Fishing and Beyond

Yesterday on our way in, we had one of the few Tarpons still hanging around, rocket next to the boat.

The cooling water temps will soon have these Tarpons looking for a warmer climate.
