Winter Tactics

Tslick-charters-saltwater-galmour-shothe Red Fish bite has slowed over the past few weeks on the Gulf. Recently the best bite has been early in the a.m., and in extremely shallow water.

That is typical for this time of year. As water temps drop, the window of opportunity narrows. Many of the pelagic species have migrated, and the native populations are searching the warmer waters local to our region.

Fortunately the Big Bend has an abundance of spring fed creeks and rivers that hold lots of fishes throughout the winter months. Crystal River, Homosassa, and the Withalacoochee River entrance, just to name a few.

Remember the ‘T’s: time, tide, and temperature. Expect the Spotted Sea Trout bite to improve as the upcoming spawn approaches.

Good Luck & ‘Til next time…see you on the Gulf!
