The fall fishery has carried through our winter season so far because we have not had the cold weather come in yet. The bonefish have been more abundant since the freeze we had a few years ago which is nice to see. We caught a few decent sized bonefish recently even with the heavy winds this month using live shrimp. On the edge of the Gulf its red hot, we are catching bluefish, Spanish mackerel, snapper, seatrout, triple tail, cobia, blackdrum and large sharks.
In Everglades National Park we are finding large schools of seatrout, jacks and ladyfish in these large muds created by mullet with soft plastics. Under the mangroves with live bait we are catching decent sized snook. Sight fishing for redfish has been challenging due to the wind, but we have caught a few in the past month that were found sunbathing by the shoreline edges.
