11/29/18 November Islamorada Fishing Report in the Everglades

Chilly morning today with our second front of the winter season! It dropped down in the mid 50s the last couple nights and water temperatures plumetted. This can some times be very good for our snook and drum fishing, though the temperature fluctuations, tide, and water quality play a big role in when and where they want to feed. Today we hit it right and had steady action all day. The snook were definitely in shock mode, we caught quite a few but they were very light bites and they didn’t make big runs like they normally do. The redfish bit pretty well and we had a variety of sizes of them. Just a handful of black drums, was thinking we’d get more of them with the cold. And plenty of sheepshead which was nice to see. We did get a nice snook for Ann at the end of the day too. All in all a fabulous cold weather fishing day here in Islamorada. Back at it tomorrow. I do have some openings next week in early December if anyone wants to get out there, should be good fishing!
