Looks as though we are getting started on our winter time weather pattern. We have received our first cool front bringing strong winds and cooler temperatures with it. As these fronts start to frequent the area the fish will start to go into their winter time patterns as well. Usually the day off and one to two days after the front the wind blows pretty good and lays down making for some great conditions until the next passing front. As the water temps start to lower the fish tend to get really active making for a great bite.
The redfish , trout and snook have all been chewing well on both artificial and live bait. Looking for the schools of bait has been the trick. Here lately the fish have been mixed in with the bait . It looks like the windy conditions will start to subside by the end of the weekend making for some great fishing conditions.
