Again, I have to have a weather conversation. I sitting in the house watching the wind howl out of the north-stiff. It’s 52 degrees and sunny now. The rain ended this morning about 8. Today is one of those days that I’m glad to be in the house keeping the wood stove stoked. The clothes you would have to wear to be comfortable in todays kind of wind chill make it difficult to fish.
I have been able to go a couple days this week and last. The results were mixed.
I have said it many times about Steinhatchee winter fishing, “it’s going to be real good or real bad”.
The fish are bunched up and success depends on finding them. Three out of four days I found them. Speckled Trout, keeper size, including some big trout we had to release on our way to a limit, is what we were catching one day. The reds we’ve caught have been small. I believe slot size reds move to more inaccessible locales like creek and river holes. We need a few days of warm weather to bring them out and stimulate a bite.
Offshore reports have been good for grouper and snapper when weather permitted.
Thanks for checking in.
GOD Bless and Good Fishing
