With the official start of Winter just a little over a month away, we will see some major changes here in Ormond Beach, FL. This time of year can be tricky for some because it such a transition. As we are already starting to see, the winds will become prevalent throughout the day and the water temperature will slowly begin to drop. This cooling of the water will send many fish up river to their deep water haunts. The Redfish and Black Drum will begin schooling up so where there is one there's usually more. If Flounder is your passion then your in luck! This is the time of year that the Fall Flounder migration begins. Fishing finger mullet, mud minnows, and shrimp on or near the bottom is the key to success. Remember, a Flounder will only travel so far for its food, so cover lots of ground. If you'd prefer to fish artificials the 4" DOA Jerk Shad along with the CAL 3" Shad tail are very hard to beat. I personally find the glow, new penny, and the glow/goldrush colors work the best for me. Use just enough weight to keep them near the bottom. As always, I am always happy to hear your stories and input. If you haven't hooked up with me on facebook (CaptainEric Greenstein), please do so, its usually the first place I post news.
