This Yankee Town, Florida Fishing Report is from Yankeetown Florida Fishing Guide GLOBAL WARMING? It is almost November and the water temps in the Gulf of Mexico off of Inglis are still in the 80’s. The Redfish bite has been good around the Withalacoochee River entrance recently, but as usual the tide and time of day is everything. Best bet is to fish on the morning when the high tide peeks before noon, and preferably near or on the new or full moon. The more extreme the tide the better. I recommend using the Florida Sportsman Fishing Planner to keep track […]

Captain Nick’s Advise, Seek And You Shall Find!

October 27, 2009

This Ocklawaha Fishing Report From Ocklawaha Fishing Guide Captain Nick “SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND” Although the Bass bite has slowed over the past couple of weeks, we were able to find a few nice ones on our last trip, Sunday(10/25). Marlin Shelton, a former player for Ole Miss, and myself headed down river on the Ocklawaha River to a spot I hadn’t fished in some time. Kinda like one of those shot in the dark deals, but we got lucky and found several Largemouths in the two to five pound range. On the way back, we tried a spot […]

A Quick Change

October 22, 2009

This Steinhatchee Fishing Report is from Steinhatchee Fishing Guide Captain Steve Kroll We went from summer to winter overnight. Surface water temp dropped 20 degrees in 4 days. It has been interesting hunting fish. I found Trout the last couple days in potholes, yes the water was cold, but I really think they were there because of no water on the flats. Negative low tides with a Northeast wind means very low tide. We caught Reds also and as I think I mentioned last week, we caught some Sandtrout. Some of the last few days have been tough conditions, but […]

The Tackle Boxes Fishing Report

October 20, 2009

10-20-09 The strongest cold front of the fall season probably brought big changes to the fresh and salt water fishing landscape in North Florida . We say “probably” since the wind that accompanied the chill was sufficiently strong to keep most would-be anglers at home—greatly reducing the weekend reports that could have confirmed our speculation. We do have one “before” and “after” catch comparison from a small area lake. But, since each was fairly impressive, we can’t yet say that the cold really changed things—at least for speckled perch fans. Friday, just ahead of the front, George Dekle and Larry […]

Summertime In October

October 14, 2009

An Indian Summer Well I’ve heard it called Indian summer. Summertime weather in October. What ever it is, it’s hot. After the little cool down we had two weeks ago, water temps are back up in the low 80’s. We should be experiencing a strong shallow water bite by now. Instead we are Trout fishing in 6-9 foot deep flats. We do have sandtrout though. Reds are scattered and unpredictable, but can be found. In the picture you will see Meacy Morton from the Atlanta area with, what I call, a bonus fish. She hooked the small Tarpon while we […]
