Cold air could improve fishing

-A A +A

Happy holidays to all - small and big. Meet us here in Cedar Key so we can celebrate and do a jig.
Ok, now that I have that out of my system, let’s talk cold front fishing. This is what we have been asking for in the last few weeks. Our fishing has been scattered but good.
A shot of cold air will drop the water temps and school up our fish. It will move them into deeper holes and pockets of water. This is a very good thing if you know where some good holes are.
It doesn’t matter what species you wanna catch, this is their pattern this weekend. I’m ready cause it should - more than any species - bunch the redfish into my winter spots. And more than that, maybe lay the bugs back into the woods for a few days, that’s a necessity.
But our speckled trout bite is holding up darn good, as of now. I expect that this will continue as the winter passes. This weather pattern really works well with the trouts comfortablity factor.
Listen everyone, have a great and happy New Year’s weekend, celebrate that our country has made another year without flopping over and goin’  belly up. But make sure while on land and water - play it safe. See y’all on the salt!
