Happy Thanksgiving to you all.It’s been awhile since I’ve posted because I took some time to enjoy the woods for a change. I went to the North Country to enjoy your hospitality and explore that part of our beautiful country. Farm country is a lot different than South West Florida and we are much warmer. I had some adjustment to the colder temps and even saw some snow. It was fun and educational but now it’s back to work.
Right now the winds are racking my house so I’m not rushing out on the water. From my fishing friends I’m told all was well and I think it will settle down a a couple of days and be fine; INSIDE. It will take some time to settle the Gulf waves are at ten feet right now!
Redfish and trout should be better now that waters have chilled some. Whitebait will not be dependable but pinfish, shrimp, and lures will be fine. Snook are going to move to protected waters but we still have a shot. We had some flounder around before this storm and I expect to see more soon.
Everything will be fine and I excited to be back home in Venice and Englewood, I’m ready to fish. Will be out with a trip Saturday afternoon and see what’s going on for myself Friday. It’s hard to guess what’s going to happen when the Gulf does settle it mainly depends on how long it calms down between fronts. It’s off to a rough start but extreme has been the norm recently. Thank you. Let’s go fishin’ before it really gets cold. Now I do understand why Northerners feel our Winter cold is a chill to them.
