    Sensational September Songbirds

    by Bev Hansen

    While there are many species of birds that live in Florida’s Adventure Coast all year around, September is the best month to look for songbirds that are migrating in the fall. These birds have spent the summer nesting and raising their chicks in the northern states and Canada, and are now passing through the county as they fly to their wintering grounds in southern Florida, Mexico, Central America, or even South America.

    September Adventure Coast Scalloping & Fishing Report

    Fishing is picking up in the back country waters. Red fish are gathering in schools along the outside points and shore lines. Live bait is producing the best action; green backs are my favorite bait of choice with pin fish second. I like to rig up with 25 pound fluorocarbon leaders and 1/0 to 2/0 circle hooks. Last of the incoming and first of the outgoing tide seem to be the best action. Most of the reds are ranging from 18 to 25 inches with a few over slots mixed in.
