Fall and Winter Bay Fishing Patterns!
This isnít your normal Fall Bay fishing patterns article, because this Fall is no ordinary Fall. Letís start off by saying that my last trip I was fishing the flats in a twin engine offshore boat, No Joke! The past summer I have fished places that I havenít ventured into in over 6 years and the fish were there! It is October 8th, 2008 and I am still using and catching fish with piggy perch (unfortunately because they are expensive)! Today was my first day trying shrimp under a popping cork along with the Piggies, Piggies won by a long shot!
There is no doubt our fall transition will occur soon, with the bite dropping off dramatically for a week or two. Usually the transition will be proceed by a really good feeding, everyone will talk about their catches then the following week the late anglers will come in to get some action only to find out they are too late! You neednít worry the Fall and Winter fishing happens to be some of the best fishing of the year, outside of my favorite ďThe SpringĒ! I like having the water to myself this time of year; it makes for peaceful and successful days! Iím waiting for the first strong cold front to run the Pin Perch off the flats then the popping cork action will turn on, that is if you would rather cast and be active instead of throwing a chunk of dead bait and sitting on your laurels!
Hey but sometimes we canít all have what we want, give the fish what they will eat!
