Happy November everyone. It’s the kickoff month for all the family holiday gatherings and some pretty cool fishing.
And when I say cool fishing I mean it in more ways than one.
As the water cools down toward cold temperatures as the month progresses, the fish will move into different areas and be caught different ways.
So, while you have been targeting the same species all summer you finally get a change of pace so to speak.
I really enjoy this time of year because I love the oh-so-skinny water in backcountry. I have a boat at home I only really use three months a year, and late November is part of that time frame. It will run in a true blue four inches of water and jump over lots less. That is were these fish will settle on low tides as we enter December.
As for now, fishing for reds and trout in the inshore regions is about the only thing to be found. As the Spanish macs and blues, all the sharks and stuff will shift off somewhere else. And until the sheepshead show it will be reds and trout. That’s fine by me but sheepshead are a pain to clean.
This past weekend’s weather kinda stopped fishing for most folks, but not for ol’ Capt. Danny.
I had a family of young girls that absolutely love fishing. And we had been getting bad weather on their charter days for five trips. I was canceling them all due to bad winds.
They weren’t too very happy last weekend ‘bout it, so I loaded ‘em up, pulled ‘em into Suwannee and stayed in the salt marsh all afternoon. We boated 20 reds, some trout, a flounder and two sheepshead. All the while it blew an impressive 25 knots.
They were happy and I was shocked I haven’t fished up there since like, late January, so I really wasn’t sure what to expect. But the Camma kids weren’t staying home again.
Folks that’s does it for me C Y’all on the Salt!
