It’s been a very busy holiday and new year so far! The weather is finally starting to cool off, with cool fronts becoming more and more regular. Most mornings start out a bit chilly, and heat up after a few hours to become quite pleasant. Over the last few weeks, anglers have been fishing with live sardines, as well as live shrimp, and are catching quite a variety of fish species. Fishing mangrove shorelines and channel edges with sardines has been producing snook, jack crevalle, bluefish, ladyfish, grouper, and a few redfish. On the days when water is a little colder, using either half of a shrimp on a hook, or a small piece of shrimp on a bucktail jig has been producing trout, mangrove snapper, sheepshead, and pompano.
