As we move into the Fall here is South Florida our fishing begins to change. With Fall comes “cooler” water temperatures, which typically means fish will be more active longer. Unlike our summer months with high water temps which means smaller windows of active feeding fish. Typically this time of year I tend to fish a little deeper water than normal particularly for Bonefish. In the middle part of the tides you can look a little deeper and have good success in finding mudding fish. And when the water falls the fish are likely to tail! One thing I also stress is to slow down and fish. You see it time after time people jumping from spot to spot, and running all over the place. With the cooler temperatures, I stay longer as I don’t feel the need to “turn on the AC”. I take my time and let certain flats “develop” throughout the tide and watch/wait for things to unfold. Fishing hard and not leaving any stone un turned. The main thing I can say is to slow down, cool water paired with cooler air temps can lead to HOT fishing if done right!
