‘Fish need to eat in the winter’

-A A +A
By Danny Allen

Hey everybody, hope all is well. Fishing is the same off and on with the fronts. Seems, of course, that catching warm days after the cold is good. That’s why I choose my days on the water best I can around life.
If you can slip out when its been warming up from a cold snap around the third day after - that’s the day they should chew best.
This weekend I’m going on another learn and earn trip (that’s where I beat up my tower boat and spend lots of gas and time learning new areas) up to the north a bit. We will be fishing an aproaching cold front all weekend. I will fish Thursday afternoon, Friday, Saturday and maybe Sunday morning. Sunday is, as of now, the coldest day at 33 as a low. So I can’t wait to see what we can figure out, and of course learn.
I honeslty am going with very high expectations based on it’s warm now and has been. This front should trigger something special. But it will be a lures-only trip so you never can tell. We’re gonna give it the ol’ college try. I’m gonna predict some big boss hog trout - just a prediction.
Some folks have spoke of a good trout bite this week - lots of shorts with a keeper here and there. And I saw some sheepshead being lifted from the pier this week. So, it’s winter, but fish still have to eat.
That’s all I got this week. See Ya’ll here next week. Go Sharks!!!
