Too Nice? ........Unseasonable January?

Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report
I'm writing this report as a week of summer like temps...."a cool summer". Since summer is never not, H-O-T.
Spring like temps have been over N.E. Florida.
(that's more like it)
And at the same time right in the middle of it all was a NEW MOON.
What's the significance? Well, we're N.E. Florida, and the tides really, really matter here. So when the tide is super HIGH, as in a foot and a half over normal, because of the moon.
Video Proof: "day of New Moon"
It's gonna be a screamer when the tide falls or floods in between the inlets jetty rocks.
In as perfect world, fisherman would call and ask when is the best time to go. Especially locals. But, as I said. That would be a perfect world.
Prior to the New Moon, before the "spring like temps", we were catching sweetheart Trout by the coolerfull. aka: 18-20" fish, and several Gator Trout, aka: 5 pounds plus.
VIDEO PROOF: (Jackets on. Hoods up)
I love the wintery conditions...because all I have to think about is the HOT, balmy conditions, when it's toursit season in the summer.
I get more serious "fisherman" during the wintery months. Maybe, just maybe because they read me preaching about how it's better fishing from October thru April.
And the other reason is, kids are in school.
Video Proof: Warm, Bluebird day, worked really hard, "too nice":
So, there ya have it. We have the rest of January, February, and some of March and April.
Before it gets really hot.
There's going to be times when it's all about Monster Gator Trout, Over-sized Redbass, Spawning Sheepshead, and Black Drum that won't fit in any cooler.
Sweethearts & Gators, a basketfull!
Spring spawner Sheepshead
Spring Gator Trout
