Wow. This weather! I am going to be completely honest and state that Iʼm not a fan.
With the overnight lows dropping into the teens more than once this week and the day  temps well below average, itʼs easy to stomach the fact that I didnʼt get on the water once. For those of you that did, you deserve an award. My hats off to you. I find myself eating well, doing chores, and dreaming of warm weather on weeks like this. Lets just hope that our speckled trout did somewhat the same and survived. I have not heard of any trout kills yet but will look further into it. For those that arenʼt familiar with what Iʼm talking about, our trout are one of the few fish that stick around our inshore waters year  round. When the temps get as low as they did this week some trout just donʼt make it, hence the term “trout kill”. A good thing to do this time of year is clean that tackle bag out! Take the time to clean your gear, take inventory of tackle, and get it all ready for the weather to break. The usual suspects are still lurking our waters, with the big three being trout, drum, and striper. Looks like there will be some fishable days ahead of us this week. Get out there and catch some fish, and remember, be safe.
