The summer pattern of calm winds and afternoon shore breezes has finally yeilded to the first real weather of the season. Winds are galloping out of the east, night temperatures have dipped into the sixties and the water temperature is cooling; Bill and I found water today as cool as sixty eight degrees. October always brings an increase in redfish activity and this season is no exception, we’ve had some memorable days chasing reds on the flats down south but snook have been scarce, until today anyway. With the arrival of the cool weather Bill Blanton and I went on recon this morning looking for snook. We covered a lot of miles, checked a lot of places and we did find a few nice fish, I was lucky to have the foredeck when this one came by.
