Pine Island Sound - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing report for the week ending 1/10/10 With back to back to back cold fronts we can"t seem to catch a break, as I am writing this report the ait temp is 34 the wind is north 15 plus feel like temp is 24 WOW!I am guessing water temp at 55 or below. I have lived in South West Florida for over thirty years and have seen a hand full of weeks like this and its never good. One good thing for the fish this came on gradually giving the more sensitive snook a chance to get into deeper water, when this kind of cold comes on to quickly it can be devistating to especially snook. Fishing on tuesday fighting 40 degree temps with north wind around 20 we had to hide in the canals and fish docks and mangrove shoreline for sheepshead and small redfish. A cut in half shrimp on a 1/0 hook with a split shot tricked a few fish into feeding. Wednesday with warmer weather and sunny skies was about the same but a slow bite, many of the spots that were producing nice seatrout the week before found that they had moved into deeper water. This was unusual because these fish were in what was there winter spots meaning the water temps drove them out. Another strange observation I had was while coming out of the canals in Cape Coral, some of which are 20 ft. deep there were hundreds of cownose rays that had a half dozen small bull sharks following them. I could only attribute this to water temps that none of these creatures were used to. Fear not warmer weather is on the way by wednesday thank god. Tight Lines.
