The fishing was pretty darn good considering the low water and air temps, combined with a pretty steady blow these past few weeks. We are still working a fairly consistent winter pattern, which revolves around mid-day low tide phases. Fishing deep and slow for trout, and fairly shallow for redfish has been the key. While live bait has been working, scented plastics have done most of the damage. Throwing artificial baits this time of a year allows the angler to cover more water at different depths with different retrieves in order to entice what can be a lethargic bite during the winter. In 3 days of fishing we had excellent catches of redfish and trout. Until the weather and water temps rise, I still suggest fishing around low tide concentrating on structure such as shell, docks, and submerged timber.
