Cooler temperatures are knocking on the door as we head into the latter part of fall, bringing another change in the seasonal fishing patterns. Warmer water species hunker down while new species arrive from the north.
In the Ponce Inlet area, redfish and big black drum will be the mainstays of the early winter season. These species tolerate cooler temperatures well and give us great targets even on the cooler days. Snook are still around, but become considerably less active as the days get colder.
Mosquito Lagoon looks good and is already getting clearer from the mild algae blooms we had in some areas with the first couple fronts past us. We should have a great winter sight fishing season this year. Big schools of black drum will be arriving in the coming weeks, giving us some great flats fishing opportunities.
As with the others seasons, east central Florida has great fishing at all times of the year. Don’t miss out on the opportunities at hand!
