We have had record, or near record heat, for closing in on a week. Yesterday, the Gulf of Mexico was a rocking 91 degrees! And the skinny water up inside the Harbor is even hotter. Hell things cook at 112! Yes, the flats have heated up – literally.
The fishing pundits say the fish have all moved out to deep water, and that anglers must do the same. They might be right. The fishing on the flats has been dismay.
Saw a few fish yesterday, including a pompano, and a school of reds on the first of the incoming. So all is not lost. Today I caught a runt red and a small snook. Maybe if we get a heavy rain at night, the flats may cool a bit. Can’t wait for fall.
