While the water temperatures have not broke into the 60's yet, we've had some fantastic days of near record warmth into the low 80's. That's not to say, like our friends in the northeast, that we haven't had our share of winter either. Yesterday we saw 82 degrees and tomorrow morning we have frost warnings! The fish haven't seemed to mind either way and have bit very well most days. We've been fortunate to have a full schedule the last two weeks where anglers had several double digit days on hard fighting redfish. The winter pattern has held, with the best bites centering around mid-day low tides. Working both live and artificial baits slowly along the bottom has triggered most of the action. The speckled trout bite is steady, and the amount of quality trout has been very good with many trout over 20". As temperatures rise, look for both trout and red fish to leave some of their deep creek winter haunts, and start feeding over shell and grass in open water. We've had a few large flounder show early, and I have a feeling this is only the beginning of what may be one of the best flounder runs we've seen in a while. We've had quite a few calls for the triple tail run which we will begin in a few short weeks, so be sure to book your triple tail
trip soon for some of the best sight fishing on the East Coast!
