A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING FORECAST EVERY TUESDAY
Peyton’s 11th birthday started with a BANG when he caught this +40lb DINOSAUR in the surf with his dad. Way to go, Peyton!
Yeah, it’s cold and windy out there, but with much of the nation bracing for record low temperatures, it’s times like these that we’re most thankful to be Floridians. Word on the street is the northern Midwest could feel like minus 30 to 40 below zero with the wind chill, BRRRR! Unfortunately, we will feel some of the effects from this massive cold front sweeping the nation. It’s going to be another windy week with high temperatures between the high 50’s and high 70’s, a true Florida winter.
There won’t likely be any ideal fishing conditions this week, and it’s probably safe to go ahead and put any offshore trips indefinitely on hold. The winds may allow the surf to be just barely fishable, so if you’re hankering to get out there, it may be worth a shot. Otherwise, the lagoons and inlet are a decent bet. The black drum bite remains consistent, just be sure to plan on positioning yourself somewhere that offers a little cover from the wind.
Snook season opens on February 1st. Hopefully next week’s weather will offer everybody a decent opportunity to take advantage.
