It has been a “Florida winter” so far as of early 2019, plenty of chilly nights in the 40’s with a few down to the upper 30’s, throw in several days from 75’ to 80’ and it’s a nice cool to mild winter pattern. Water temperatures have ranged from mid 50’s after the chilly spells and up to the mid 60’s after a few warmer days. Clear water is the normal in winter, more clear when cold, cloudy up just a little with warmer temps, schooling fish is the winter pattern, Seatrout schools are common along the drop offs and sloughs in the backcountry and lagoon, a paddle tail jig or live shrimp are a sure thing hook up on the schooling trout. Find the right spot in winter and the fish are bunched up together, not unusual to catch Trout, Reds, and Snook in the same spot, Black Drum and Sheepshead can be there too. On a sunny day schooling Redfish go shallow for a little sun warmed water, slow and stealthy is the way to get close enough for a cast to reach them with a live shrimp or small soft plastic lure, Seatrout can be right in there with the Reds on a winter flat, here I am with a nice winter Seatrout off a 2 feet deep flat with an artificial lure……………………

Black Drum are one of our main target fish in the backcountry and usually catch a few or more most trips among the variety of all the different species we regularly catch, Dan from California with another average size Drum……………….

Our Snook population has been coming back again after a winter freeze a year ago which lowered the local numbers with some Snook not able to survive very cold water temps, we are regularly catching a few on most trips into the backwaters, Bob from Orlando with a fun size linesider from a recent trip………………….
