Cool Down Slows Flats Fishing But Not For Long

They are back, yesterday's Pompano Dinner was a treat after a few days of cold wind and abandoned Inshore Waters.

The water temps dropped 10 degrees in 24 hours, what would you do?
Right, swim for the warm Gulf of Mexico

However all is forgiven as the air and water temps are climbing and the baitfish are inshore, inviting the larger Game Fish in.

Yesterday afternoon we found Pompano, Sea Trout and a school of Mad Hungry Jack Creval's
most of the Big Jacks were over 12 lbs up to 15 and challenging the backbone of out light tackle Spin and Flyrods.

It was fun and we saw a few Barracudas and Sharks showing on the Flats also.

Tomorrow we're out to Wack the Hell out of them!

Unbelievable Weather Keeps Tarpon in the Air

All through December we have had wonderful weather, more Spring like than Winter.

While Flats fishing for Permit and Bonefish remains good and the Tarpon have been sneaking inshore, we have had limited Basin action with Pompano, Sea Trout and Barracudas.

Our first real Winter Front is showing up tomorrow bringing high winds and a temp drop all the way into the 60's

That should run off those pesky Flats Fish for a few days!

Don't you feel sorry for us?
