A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING REPORT EVERY TUESDAY
Capt. Alex Hughey took a day off from guiding clients on the flats to score some tripletail offshore.
TIME TO FREEZE
Be thankful that we’re coming straight out of America’s most food-centric holiday — consuming all those extra calories may be crucial for your ability to successfully hibernate through the frigid days of cold ahead this week. With temperatures projected to dip down into the 40’s on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, hibernation is certainly an attractive option, but probably unrealistic for many of us with jobs and other, worldly responsibilities. Now is a great time to bust the long johns out of storage and brace yourself for the icy grasp of winter, and also, to have a laugh at a sampling of the corniest cold weather puns ever uttered, courtesy of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s performance as “Mr. Freeze” in the comedically bad 1997 film, Batman and Robin.
Like Mr. Freeze, Winter is not sympathetic to Florida’s cold weather sensitivities.
If you can’t stand cold weather, don’t stress. This is Florida. We’ll be back to sweating through our shirts by the weekend.
As this front moves in, it will bring with it winter winds that will blow strong until mid-week. With winds subsiding on Thursday and Friday, these days both present a good opportunity to venture offshore. Hopefully, the WNW/NW winds through the week will also help clear out weeds from the beach and setup for some nice surf fishing conditions; if not, the inlets and lagoons will remain a great option. Cold or not, it’s time to kick some ice out there fishing!
IN THIS WEEK’S REPORT…
Caleb Couture of Pompano Riggs by Couture and Tradewinds Surf Fishing Charters will be the guest speaker at the Florida Sport Fishing Association’s North Chapter meeting on Tuesday, November 27 at 7:00pm. The pompano are running in the surf this time of year and Caleb is going to talk all about the art of catching these delicious specimens. Check it out if you can!
Learn how to catch Pompano with the best of them — by the best of them — at the FSFA’s Tuesday night meeting in Port Canaveral, featuring Caleb Couture.
Mr. Freeze thinks FSFA Club meetings are pretty cool, and so will you!
