Fishing Report - 01/12/2011
The fishing this week has been hit and miss with some tough conditions here the last few days. I fished yesterday before the arrival of our next cold front with David Shotwell from Michigan. The wind direction had shifted to the south east and blew a steady 10-15 making many of our back bays pretty dirty. We did find a couple lees with some nice reds but no good shots - it happens. We were on top of many of the fish before we saw them due to the visibility. There are some nice fish around but the wind and visibility definitely make them a challenge. The upcoming forecast is for a few days of cold temps with steady warming towards next week. This will help a bunch and the fish should be hungry after the cold blast.
It seems the whole country is under a deep freeze this week. CNN reported that there is snow on the ground in 49 of the 50 states. Florida is the only state without the white stuff - so far!
Grab a cup of coffee, tie some flies, check the equipment and stay warm.
We will keep you posted,
