As predicted the Sea Trout bite picked up for my clients with some nice fish being caught up to 4-5 lb. range. By blind casting into deeper 7-10 ft. holes in smaller creeks during the middle of the out going tide. Mostly happening in Jacksonville's Timucaun Preserve. The rigging recipe was using a 15' clear sink-tip fly line with my black and white HD Clouser fly. The end of the month brought in some unusually warm weather with Christmas day hitting 80 degrees along with extreme low tides making it easy to find active schooled up Redfish as far back in the creeks that you can go. The winter time will be one of your best times to catch a big Redfish on fly during these extreme low tide that we typically get during the winter months. As usaual the Sea Trout bit will get better as the water clears up during the winter. The American Shad fly fishing is up next starting by Mid-January to early March. Tight loops and lines all and Happy Fishy New Years!
