Well folks we have made it through another year and looking back the fishing was excellent this past year. The first of last year brought us plenty of rain and along with that came the darker waters all the way until May and June but the fishing remained good. The fish seemed to stay on the flats a lot longer last year and I suppose it had to do with those darker waters and water temperatures not heating up as quickly as normal. During the month of December the trout bite has been pretty darn good in the shallower water along the point and creek mouths. The trout have been hitting the suspended plugs like crazy on the point and creek mouths when you get on them.

The redfish seem to be a little scattered but when you find them they too are hitting those same suspended plugs. They also seem to be hanging on the points and deeper creeks.

During the month of January I would suggest continuing to fish the points and creek mouths for trout using suspended and sinking plugs. Fish the deeper holes and creeks using sinking plugs for the redfish and also don’t forget to try the live shrimp in those deeper holes for the reds. And if the temperatures drop far enough remember to try the river on your way out since those fish will stack up in there if it gets cold enough. Also please remember this is the time of year to take plenty of warm clothing with you and make sure to watch the tides since they can leave you stranded in a minute out of the rivers especially if you get any wind. Remember to make sure to include the children in all your outdoor activities.
