Although the short term saltwater forecast for our region looks pretty grim, I have no doubt that in the future fishing in the Gulf of Mexico will be as good as it ever was. It may take awhile, but everything happens for a reason, and I believe it’s all just a part of the “master plan”.
Meanwhile we need to adapt to these adverse conditions. Best bet for the near future is to target Redfish or Trout in the skinny water. Recently I had a report of a huge school of Reds near “Eleven Prong” in about 12” of water.
Unfortunately, they would not bite.
Areas like these are going to be the place to be, but your gonna need an airboat or kayak to get there.
Several of my saltwater clients are now going Bass fishing. That’s one way of adapting and fortunately the Bass have been on.
Trout season re-opened on March 1, and hopefully the weather will turn around. The first day of spring is just around the corner.
Remember, God Loves A Fisherman
