First Cold Front Coming

Posted on by Captain John

The first cold front of the 2020 fall season is upon us. This means the fish will be moving back into the 2nd or 3rd bays. I actually cant wait as this means predictable activity.

This past week has been very good fishing at the right tides. It seems that the falling tide has been best but there are fish to be caught all day. Snook, Redfish and Sea Trout have been active and willing to bite our offerings.

For the snook we have been using free lined live shrimp and also soft plastics like the Zman Dark and Stormy 4 inch jerk bait. It seems the shrimp work best when tide flow is slower but as the tide picks up throwing the Zman right at the mangrove roots it the ticket. The first cold front coming in today may slow things for a day but quickly recover by Wednesday.

Redfish and seatrout have been getting more active and with this first cold front they will enjoy the cooler water temps. After we get past this full moon the turbidity of the big tides will subside. We will have some great action. Right now for the redfish and sea trout we have been using Gulp Shrimp in New Penny color. Also you cant beat a brown bucktail 1/8 oz tipped with a small piece of carefully place shrimp.

I am now booking for the 2021 season and January has been very active. If you want to fish on a true backwater fishing trip contact me. Please be patient when you call. I am on the water everyday so I usually return calls after 4pm.
