Wehave had our first cool fronts of the season lowering the watertemperatures to the low 70’s, north winds play a big part in thewater temps dropping early in the season as cooler water from furthernorth is pushed down Florida's coast. Fishing patterns change as thewater gets colder, less baitfish in the water as most goes south forthe winter, local Lagoon game fish begin to school up, includingRedfish, Trout and Black Drum, some of these schools we find inshallow water on sunny days as the skinny water warms a little,others are bunched up in holes and off the edge of drop offs andchannels. Winter fish Sheepshead and Bluefish become more numerous asthe water gets colder giving us some different fish to catch in thecool months. The subtropical inshore game fish Tarpon, Jack Crevalleand Ladyfish have mostly already moved south, still catching a fewbut noticeably less the last couple weeks, when we have had bigschools of Jacks about 5 lbs surface striking with white watercrashes on baitfish making for great sight fishing cast lures or baitand instant hook ups. A few large Redfish make their way in to LagoonBackcountry after spawning at the inlet near the ocean in the fall,Brian from California caught one with me last week at 38” a greatbattle on my fun light tackle used in the back waters……………..
