Flexibility is key to success in winter fishing

January 5, 2022

Fishing in the winter is all about timing. When we have nice warm sunny days fishing can be more like spring time, but when cold front come through we are forced to switch gears and use different techniques. Sudden drops in water temperature can cause tropical species such as Snook and Redfish to become dormant therefore difficult to target. Sometimes the failure to recognize this can make for a long/boring day of fishing. If you are able change your game plan and target deeper water fish such as sheepshead and snapper your luck can be much better. The key is to keep an open mind, stay flexible, and pay attention to the water temperature.
