King mackerel fishing is always good in October. The really big ones are heading back south via the Panhandle. Grouper is in as well as amberjack. October is redfish month, and they are thick. Flounder are starting to get plentiful as they move out of the bays and around the artificial reefs close to shore. Captain Tom Adams caught a dozen big mahi mahi around buoy 2 just last week.
