Cold Snap Damages Florida Fish Stocks

The recent cold snap appears to have damaged fish stocks throughout the sunshine state. Massive fish kills from Jacksonville all the way to the Florida Keys are being reported. Snook seem to be one of the hardest hit by this natural though destructive phenomenon. Snook rarely reach our area, I have however caught several of these tasty and hard fighting species in the inter-coastal waterway and in a cast net when catching bait.

Warmer water temperatures should usher in the Largemouth bass spawning season and excellent catches of bass should be available in our local lakes, ponds and tidal creeks. Whiting catches should improve as the surf approaches 55 degree water temperatures.

More information about the fish stock can be obtained from:

    Jim it is not often I find articles on drum fishing where the writer knows what he's talking about. So many guides and writers say that the big drum are not fit to eat but that could be a good thing when it comes to locating bait when drum are biting. Thanks and keep up the good drum articles.
