Capt. Richard Stanczyk Sr. got out with friends Ron Modra and MB Roberts the other night. More good fishing was had and they landed several bonefish and got a couple permit as well! The evening falling tide late afternoon in Islamorada gave them some good conditions. Stake up fishing is where it’s at especially as the water temperatures cool. If you just want to catch one this is the way to go… don’t have to worry about the pressure of casting to a fish you may only get one or two shots at. Leave that to the seasoned anglers 🙂 October bonefish fishing in Islamorada has been good. We are getting some cold weather this week which could make the stake up fishing even better, especially before the front. Right afterwards sometimes the water is a little too cold, but it shouldn’t be dropping too much during these fronts. And that usually means the bonefish are scourging around feeding!
Capt. Richard Stanczyk Sr. has been on the bonefish as of late. They caught 8 the other night with his friend Vinny Bob. Soaking shrimp on the flats of Islamorada was the ticket. A beatiful evening on the water! Fall is a great time for bonefish fishing as the water levels get extra high and the fish push far up on to the flats. This past year the bonefishing has gotten a lot better, we are seeing more numbers than we have in probably close to 10 years! A few nights before that with Stephen Byrd, Richard Sr. put Stephen on a 35 lb permit as well as as bonefish. What a special fish the permit was! Again dead bait fishing was the trick. October bonefish action can be great in the early morning or later afternoon/evening. If you are looking to give it a try give me a shout. I myself don’t do many bonefish charters but I can refer you to some guides who specialize in it.
