Crazy Winter Weather

Capt. Bob Chase
January 22, 2013
Amelia Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

This month has seen some pretty drastic weather conditions, from near record high temperatures to chilly mornings in the upper 30's two days later. It's no wonder that fishing in Northeast Florida at this time of year is a game of highs and lows. But knowing how to capitalize on the sunny weather can make for some productive fishing days.

A good place to start is near the mud flats adjacent to deeper water. On an outgoing tide, we have been finding redfish and trout cruising close to the ditches that drain the flats back into the creek channels. Another area worth investigating is the outside edges of the oyster beds located on the edges of the flats closer to deep water. As the tide bottoms out and starts to flood the flats, look for fish to follow the tide back into the oyster beds and spartina grass.

Warm sunny days will make the water temeratures rise a bit as the water filters back through the shallow mud flats. Look for the warmer water in conjunction with structure such as oyster beds, rock piles and feeder creek channel edges. A difference of just a few degrees in temperature can definitely turn this fish on at this time of year.

Favorite baits include live shrimp or mud minnows fished either on a lead head jig or under a popping cork, and plastic shrimp or baitfish imitations in natural colors.
