Pine Island Fishing After The Cold Front
I woke up on Monday morning to find my SUV's windshield covered in frost. Bad news. The water temp at the boat ramp was 52 degrees at 8AM, a 20 degree drop in 48 hours. Even worse news. So yes, the fishing has been more then tough the last two days. But the good new is that things are warming up quickly and I found water in the mid-60's again this afternoon. My anglers also found a few willing fish, including the 21 inch trout in the photo above, but we had to work for it. We've got great tides this week so things will get back to normal quickly.
