November brought in the beautiful and refreshing fall weather and dropping water temps. to around the 65-75 degree range putting the Reds and Sea Trout on the bite! The bait was on the move steering things up making things happen. The bigger Sea Trout starting showing up more which normally occurs as the water temps. drop and the waters become more clear. If you after some big Trout now is the time. Sight fishing for Reds was slow on some of the trips around low tide due to the higher water levels caused by the consistant northeast winds. On the other hand blind casting was very effective if you knew where the Redfish holes were to get you catches. In some cases we did see some Redfish actually charge our Sher-Red fly like it was there last meal and typically fought harder as they do in the fall! The big Sea trout bite is expected to only get better in December and through the winter months along with sight fishing for Redfish also improving as the water typically clears. The wintertime generally means less bait which means more opportunities the catch a trophy fish on fly. There not much else for them to eat. Another welcomed and exciting change coming around the end of December is the American Shad Run down in the lower St. Johns River. One of my favorite times of the year! Until next month tight loops and fly lines!
Happy November Clients wit there 1st Redfish's and Sea Trout
