I’ve had to cancel nearly two dozen trips over the past month, while only managing two trips on the water. No hurricanes or flooding to be concerned with this week like weeks past. Just wind. I mean lots of wind. We are in the 5th day of small craft advisories with gusts into the mid 20mph or more. While the weather couldn’t be more perfect for a round of golf or stroll outdoors, it has made fishing next to impossible, at least a fun productive day on the water impossible. As I’ve always practiced, we don’t leave the dock unless conditions allow for a comfortable trip and the possibility of producing a good amount of fishing action. We did experience a few nice days between the weather events and were able to go wet a line and catch several nice Reds as well as a number of Sharks. With water temps still around 80 degrees, the Sharks aren’t gonna step completely aside for the Bull Reds just yet. It appears this weather pattern will hold till this weekend and then the only concern will be the aggravated moon tides that might make fishing difficult. By the start of next week, tide levels look good and hopefully with water temps cooling down, we will see an increase in the number of Bull Reds arriving in the nearshore waters. It has been truly the craziest weather I have ever experienced this time of year and hopefully its all behind us and we can get down to business. “The business of catching fish” Tight Lines Everyone!
