FINALLY....IT'S HERE! 

WELL, IT'S MONDAY MORNING THE 8TH OF OCTOBER AND IT'S BLOWING HARD OUT ON THE LOCAL WATERS. AND WILL, ALL WEEK LONG ACCORDING TO THE NWS.

WHICH MEANS, OCTOBER IS FINALLY HERE.....HURRAY!!  

I CALL IT "DAVE TIME". (BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME TOO, IF YOU'RE A FANATICAL INSHORE SPORT FISHERMAN)

WHY DOES WINDS TO 25 KNOTS, AND IT BEING OCTOBER, EXCITE ME. YOU ASK?

BECAUSE I'M JUST PLAIN TIRED OF HOT 85 DEGREE WATER, SUMMER CONDITIONS.  AND I'M READY FOR EVERYTHING FROM BIG WHITING, BLACK DRUM, BULL REDFISH, EASIER SPECKLED TROUT FISHING, SHEEPSHEAD, AND FLOUNDER.  AND I LOVE THE EASE OF CATCHING ALL THE MULLET FOR BAIT, ANYONE WOULD EVER NEED WITH THE FALL MULLET RUN, IN FULL BORE. 

AND SIMPLE WEATHER CHANGES CAN BRING ON LOWER WATER TEMPS AND EASE US INTO FALL LIKE WEATHER. (I'M NOT A METEOROLOGIST, OR PLAY ONE ON TV, JUST A DIE HARD WEATHER OBSERVER) 

IT'S A TRANSITIONAL TIME, AND EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW THAT.  UNLESS, YOU'RE NEW TO N.E. FLORIDA.

LATELY, MY FAVORITE "DRUM",  THE BLACK DRUM. HAVE BEEN DOING PRETTY GOOD AT THE MAYPORT JETTIES. GET A FEW LIKE THIS IN THE BOX AND YOU'LL SOON FORGET ABOUT ALL THOSE NON-KEEPER REDFISH OUT THERE, AT THE INLET.

(CAUGHT SEVERAL SATURDAY 10/6 ABOARD THE JETTYWOLF)

K.I.S.S. FISHING, WITH DEAD SHRIMP IN SOME KEY PLACES ALONG THE ROCKS AT THE RIGHT TIDE CAN YIELD A BOX OF NICE BLACK DRUM LIKE THIS THROUGH THE REST OF THE FALL, STRAIGHT INTO THE DEEPER WINTER MONTHS. 

SIMPLY STATED, "IT'S GO TIME" FOR ALL INSHORE ANGLERS!

(TIP: making the most proven inshore bottom fishing rig ever. My product of 10 years of trial and error. Don't skimp, make it right! And it'll work like a dream in the river & inlet.  It's all I use and it works perfectly on my charter boat, day in, day out, for bottom fishing all kinds of baits:
