A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING FORECAST EVERY TUESDAY
Christmas Day marks the unofficial kick-off of Shad season on the St Johns River.
Even with the wind, there’s some great fishing opportunities this week over the holidays, most notably, the unofficial kickoff to American Shad season on the St Johns River. Contributor Paul MacInnis has a great write up on the subject, which is featured in this week’s forecast. Otherwise, we at Spacefish wish everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday break!
IN THIS WEEK’S FORECAST…
SPACE B.O.I. FORECAST
- black drum
WEATHER OVERVIEW: It looks like we are in for more wind this week. It starts to die down Friday, but if you are wanting to get offshore, then Saturday and Sunday look like your best shot. However, we all know how quickly this can change, so keep a close eye on the weather. After the little cool front on Tuesday, high temperatures in the mid 70s look pretty consistent throughout the remainder of the week.
