Warm Weather Keeps the Fish Biting in Southwest Florida

So far November has remained a month with mild weather, a few slight cool fronts but nothing more. With no reason for baitfish or predators to head for warmer water good fishing continues around southwest Florida.

Its Thanksgiving week and we are still fishing in shorts and t shirts, you can’t beat that!

Catch and release snook fishing continues to give us fun with the hard fighting linesides. They are always a pleasant surprise when our main target is redfish.

On some days locating redfish has been pretty easy and on others it’s taken some moving around. Sand potholes on the low water and hard bottom along mangrove shorelines over the higher tide stages have given the best results.

Season is closed on sea trout, but we are catch and releasing plenty. Large fish up to twenty-four inches are feeding over the same bottom as redfish and snook. It’s possible to catch an inshore slam (snook, redfish & trout) without moving the boat.
Now that the Thanksgiving Holiday is here and gone it’s the kick off to the crazy shopping season. I never have and never will understand how people can actually tolerate the shopping mayhem and enjoy it. What I do understand, with all crowds on the roads and shopping at the stores, it’s a great time for a peaceful day of fishing. Especially if this beautiful weather in sunny southwest Florida continues.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving Holiday.
