Trolling The Atlantic Ocean Waters
Excursions And Trips On Florida's East Coast
Saturday October 21, 2017
During the right time of year, trolling for saltwater fish off Florida's coastline can be an enjoyable and productive technique for species like Dorado, sailfish, barracuda and loads of other game fish. Trolling has it's appeal in the ease of putting a spread of lures or an assortment of fresh baits both live or dead behind the boat, sitting back and waiting for the action to begin.
Most knowledgeable anglers know that trolling is only as effective as the location, season and presentation for the species they're trying to pursue. Off Port Canaveral in the spring and early summer, Dorado or mahi-mahi are relatively abundant in the cobalt blue waters adjacent to the gulf stream almost 30 miles offshore. But winters can be challenging and the dead summer doldrums are often not as productive for these highly migratory fish. You might consider chasing other species during those seasons or simply trying different methods or techniques.
Remember that presentation is key to success when trolling. A well rigged ballyhoo or strip bait will run true and fool the fish, while a poorly deployed one will rarely get the strike. Keep in mind that you need to test your trolled bait before you deploy to make sure it looks realistic. Fresh well brined baits will last longer, look better and smell attractive to game-fish too.

October - 2017 Fishing Report
The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.
Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.
