A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING FORECAST EVERY TUESDAY
A beautiful spotted seatrout caught in the lagoon this week with Capt. Alex Hughey.
The wind has been relentless lately, but that hasn’t stopped anglers from having some big days on the water. Don’t bet on this week’s frigid temperatures stopping them, either! Find out what our pro and recreational contributors are projecting for the bite ahead in this week’s forecast…
IN THIS WEEK’S FORECAST…
SPACE B.O.I. FORECAST
- black drum
WEATHER OVERVIEW: Hot, cold, hot, cold — that seems to be the theme the past couple of weeks. Last week we experienced high temperatures in the mid 80s making it feel like late spring. This week will start off the complete opposite. With our most recent cold front upon us, we can expect lower temps through Thursday. Friday, the wind will shift of out of the south bringing our high temperatures up to the mid 70s but that will be short-lived as the next cold front will move in Saturday bringing temperatures back down to the mid 60s through the weekend. Offshore will be tough this week but keep an eye on Saturday-Monday. Currently, the weather shows the winds being out of the WNW & NW at roughly 12 mph. We all know how quickly this can change but, if this forecast holds, it could create some decent surf, nearshore and inlet fishing opportunities.
