We got our first cold front this week and it was about time. As summer ends and fall arrives the fishing is going to really get better. Not that it’s not good during the summer months, but generally the fishing is better in the spring, fall and winter than the dog days of summer (or maybe I can’t take the heat).
It takes a few cold fronts to affect the fish and drop the water temperature, so even though it’s a little cooler out, my fishing style really doesn't change much until we've had around 4-5 cold fronts.
Some major things that affect the style of fishing I do and where I fish are tidal flow, if it’s cloudy out or blue skies, and lastly whether the water quality is muddy or clear depending on how much rain have we gotten. This week the wind is going to blow 15 - 20 the next 3 days and then be back to normal. I'll be out one of those days to check a few areas out to see how they do. No one likes fishing in high winds, but fishing in tough conditions makes you a better fisherman.
I've been out a few times the past few days on both mornings and night trips. The water quality is not the best, but it’s getting better. We've had a lot of rain last month so the next few weeks with no rain will be a blessing.
Thanks for stopping by.
