  • Good fishing in winter weather

     Most outdoorsmen are putting their coveralls on to go sit in the deer stand or duck blind. Here along our coast you will still see plenty of boats cruising up and down the waterway chasing after some good wintertime fishing. The weather has been mild so far this year, making for more pleasurable fishing conditions. This week is looking chilly with the north winds blowing steadily. Our water temperatures are hovering just a little bit above average, but this next cold front should get us around the 50-degree mark.

  • Cold brings on the bite

     The boat had nearly an eighth of an inch of frost on its surface, creating an ice-skating rink. The north winds were blowing just hard enough to make your face feel as if someone was throwing needles at you. The air temperature was in the low 30s, making things a bit uncomfortable. However, the water temperature was still hovering just above the 50-degree mark, which is perfectly comfortable for speckled trout, black drum and redfish.
