Cooler weather is on the way to anglers on the Treasure Coast. Weekly cold fronts will be arriving now and that means the water temperatures will continue to drop. Lots of migratory fish are arriving for the winter and anglers will be out to catch them. Work your lures slowly as the fish become lethargic and won't move quickly to bite. They still have to eat, but using the slow approach will increase your chances at getting a hook up. Enjoy the cooler weather and get out fishing!
The Treasure Coast Casters had their December fishing tournament recently. I had Colt and Michael on the boat that morning. Winds were strong, but the boys love fishing and we went on our way to enjoy the day. Colt had the hot hand that morning. He ended up with two keeper sheepshead and a nice croaker along with lots of other fish to keep him busy. Michael also caught a lot of fish, but finally got a keeper sheepshead near the end of the tournament. Colt came in second place Middle School with his catch. We all had a great day on the water.
The best bite has been sheepshead and croakers lately. There are nice flounder in the river now. Kaitlyn took biggest fish and third place Middle School in the tournament with her big flounder that was nearly 6 pounds. Congratulations goes out to Andrew Evans, who won first place in the High School division and Nicholas Rosario, who took first place in the Middle School division. I always enjoy volunteering for the Treasure Coast Casters. If you have children or grandchildren in school who like to fish....Call Cammie Ward at 772-201-5773 for more information on getting your kids involved or volunteering. It's a great organization with super benefits for the kids. Good fishing this month!
Remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
