November Kayak Fishing Forecast

November will be the start of the Winter species push. Look for pompano, Spanish mackerel and bluefish to start to show up along the beach with our first few cold fronts. Fish for pompano along channel edges of your favorite inlet. Pompano jigs, DOA Lures 2.75” shrimp and a good ole bucktail jig are a few of my favorite lures.  

November has been good to me with wahoo and mahi mahi. We typically get good numbers more than size this time of year on the mahi. If you can still find mullet around I love using them for mahi drifting 180-300 foot of water. I like to bump up my bait size for the wahoo and slow troll goggle eyes and blue runners 90-250 foot of water. Try trolling one bait up top on the surface and one 40-80 feet below the surface using a downrigger of rubber band and egg weight attached to your line. The egg weight will break away when bait it struck and you are free to fight the fish.

Peacock Bass and Clown Knifefish will be chewing this month. Prop baits will work well for peacock along shallow edges. Try twenty-pound leader and a 2/0 circle hook casting in and around structure and weed lines to get onto a few Clowns with finger mullet and shiners. Look to fish mid water column and below by adding a pinch weight to your leader and get that bait in their face.
