All hope is not lost after all. While the record low water temps and daily gusty winds have limited everyone’s fishing capabilities this entire month, we have managed to produce some tasty lemonade this past week from the lemons given us this year. While the Bull Red fishing has been a bust, we have been able to catch a number of fun sized Sharks over the past week as well as plenty of miscellaneous fish on ultra-light sponge-bob tackle. I defer back to the lemonade statement. While we did manage a few nice Reds that exceeded the 25lb mark a couple of weeks back, these fish just haven’t moved inshore into some of the areas that we would normally see them at this time of year. They just seem to be staying out of arms reach a few miles off the beach. If it wasn’t so windy day in day out, we could have an opportunity at em, but the risk (seasickness and roughness) aint worth the reward. Lots of rain here over the past 24hrs and extreme wind over the next couple of days gives way to what looks like a beautiful weather forecast. Warming temps and light wind are called for thru next weekend and beyond so I’m optimistic that the fishing action is gonna get better. Could Winter finally be coming to an end? Not gonna bet on it, but at least there is light at the end of the tunnel.
