Late December Redfish
We've had two weeks of exceptional weather for the end of the year and the fishing can't be better. The big reds have been all over Matlacha Pass and if you can drop a live shrimp or well tied crab fly in front of them you should get a quick eat. This will probably change before the weekend with morning temps dropping into the low 50's with an oncoming cold front. You'll still be able to find these fish after the temps drop but they'll be more active later in the day. Sleep in a bit next week and go fishing after lunch time. The late incoming tide will be your friend in Matlacha Pass starting this weekend.
