Winter is in full swing, but not to worry here in the south. When the weather was warm in December the fish were acting a bit funky. With a ton of bait around and the dolphin not giving the reds a hard time, it seemed as though the reds were coming off the grass early and staying a bit deep until the tide was at the bottom.. Well a couple of cold snaps and fleeing bait has put an end to that nonsense !! The dolphin have become very interested in eating reds now that the bait has pulled out, and the fishing has been really good as long as the weather is on our side. There has also been good numbers of Albies sitting off the coast, with a number of good reports coming in. Couple of buddies have been finding them in the 5 to 10 mile range and crushing them on fly and spin. I wish I had a bit bigger boat to go have fun chasing them. When the weather is good for my boat I know the reds will be going off and it’s hard to take that chance looking.
