Well, some things have changed around here. Here is the last photo before old man winter showed up on our doorstep. We are doing everything we can to make this last week of the year memorable.
As our fishing reports have shown for the last three or so months, the cobia fishing has been one for the record books. We were averaging 8-10 fish per half day trip.
That is going to be over for a little while until we can get some decent weather.
With our temperatures now averaging in the low 40s. Water temperatures in the 50s we are definitely going to be switching gears. When are now in full winter swing. We definitely got the best of the fall and pre-winter.
This week we are doubled up every day. With shrimp being on the table for Bait for the next few months. We might have a few warm up days and a few cherry pick days where we will be able to sneak offshore and play with some more cobia, Kingfish, Bonita, Gag Grouper, jewfish, sharks and Tripletail.
With the shrimp being the bait of choice. Also of course our species are going to change. Sheephead , mangrove snapper, trout, redfish, and black drum will be the species around mid February.
Also, some slow played artificial’s coming to play this time of year. We will be using a different variety of jigs tipped with shrimp just to try to cover some more of the water column. These work very well with a slow, retrieve and bounce on the bottom with the water being so cold.
This is a very difficult time of year for us to fish. Ironically also everyone and their mother is here. We know everyone looks at our social medias and wants to cherry pick their favorite fish like they’re ordering it off the menu. With this being said. Please try to have some patience with us in these winter months.
We want to deliver the best memories we can to you and your family. Please just remember this is not the type of fishing we do all year! If you come prepared, dress warm, you and your family will still have a fantastic day on the water!
Merry Christmas and happy holidays from the Bedell Captains.
