Typically, I don’t make predictions. Most of my fishing partners would agree it’s bad “juju”.
On this occasion, I will make an exception (with conditions). In my opinion, if these cold fronts we are now experiencing continue, and we get a cooler than average winter, as predicted by the wether Pro’s, I think we are looking at a terrific fall/winter season for both salt and freshwater fishing.
Water temps in the southern Big Bend area have fallen from the lower 80’s a few weeks ago, to the middle 60’s just off the Levy/Citrus County Coasts today.
The rivers and lakes of the Ocala National Forest have also seen a radical drop in temperature.
In both regions, this means one thing: GOOD FISHING.
Both salt and freshwater fish alike will be spawning soon, and the pre-spawn bite is hard to beat.
