FISHING REPORT AS OF JANUARY 18TH
“A combination of early spring-like weather, light winds and waning full moon tides produced some outstanding shallow water action this past holiday weekend,” says Capt. Dave Lear of Tallahassee. “With the water temperatures back into the mid- to upper 60s the trout and reds are prowling the shorelines and tidal creeks aggressively looking for food. The lower stretches of the coastal rivers were producing too. Any number of offerings, including light swim baits, shrimp jigs, topwater plugs and live shrimp triggered hard strikes and spirited battles for those hitting the water. Multiple trout tallies, including fish up to several pounds, were recorded and there were enough redfish around to add to the mix. With Old Man Winter on hiatus for the near future, the prospects next week look good as well.”
This weekend may be another one for boat and tackle maintenance, however. With very little tidal movement due to the ‘tweener moon’ phase and the forecast calling for strong winds and thunderstorms it may be more prudent to stay on the hill. Go through the tackle boxes to check for rust, replace and sharpen hooks, re-spool reels, check rod guides and get everything ready for the prime season.
Now is also the ideal time to get your boat and/or motor into the shop for annual service or to repair any nagging problems. Activities at the marina are slower right now and the turnaround time is much quicker than it will be later this spring. Give Gil, our service manager, a call. (925-6158, Extension 2) and get on the schedule.
