    Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charters is releasing a just caught and fought red fish! What does this mean? It means it’s still swimming, it still growing, and it’s still eating!




    The Inshore Bite!
    Fishing inshore, especially now, the bite can be existing one minute and non-existing the next. What does this mean? When water temps are on the cold side I believe that fish only feed enough just to exist. Heck, they aren’t doing too much swimming. So therefore they are not burning a single feeding in a day or even maybe two. And if this is the case, knowing which day they are going to feed is going to be key to getting a few hits. Now the down side to this theory is if you happen to be fishing on the day that the fish aren’t feeding then I guess you could say, “Non-existence bites for sure!” However, and there is always is a however, not all fish feed at the same time so therefore there could be a few feeding when the others aren’t! No matter have you slice this cold water is true fishing at its finest!


    So what does all of this mean to the fisherman? Well, if you want to give fishing a try some of it could turn into catching. And if you don’t believe check this week’s inshore fish catching pictures!

    Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charters took this fishing team on a Hula Hoop Casting Experience. From left to right: Linda her husband Jack (Toronto) and Tom Kohler Savannah, Georgia What kind of fishing experience was this? Well, 19 or the 20 red fish that were caught while fishing in a circulator spot about the size of a regulation hula hoop. As long as the fishermen cast into this area that caught fish. Was it a waiting game? Yes, but as you can see, “it was well worth it!” The one red fish that was caught outside the hula hoop area most likely had been from the school that found this spot so interesting! What was used for bait? Cold water mud minnows

    Please meet Fred or Frederica, which ever the case may be. This pelican found Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Chartres, boat very interesting. I guess it thought was, that maybe Captain Kevin was an URB on the water. According to this report Fred or Frederica rode with them for a few moves from one fishing spot to the other. As soon as it ate a small mud minnow dropped on Captain Kevin’s gunnel it took flight. What does this mean? One minnow equals a grand take off!

    While inshore fishing with Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charters Mike Clark Ringgold, Georgia he caught this nice redfish. What was he using as bait? Mud minnow presented under Harper Super Striker Cork why the old mud minnow? Well, it’s one heck of a hardy bait when cold water situations prevail


    According to this fish, Captain Kevin said, “Fish really came to life after the tide started coming in. We saw a ton of fish on the flats that were still a bit sluggish from the cooler water temps and overcast skies!”





    While inshore fishing with Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charter Elliot Smith Tuscaloosa, Al caught this nice redfish.

    While inshore fishing with Captain Garrett Ross of Miss Judy Charters Alex Clark Panama City, Florida caught this nice red fish, which I am call the “spotless wonder!” Why? Because this red fish doesn’t have any spots Why? My theory still stands; I say it is because it hasn’t had to escape its most serious predator, which is the dolphin.

    Sheepshead plight!
    This is one fish that loves a cold water feed for sure. Heck, they migrate offshore during this time to do their wintering. So solid bites can be had for sure, but being in the know about feeding habits is certainly going to help you hooking up chances. A sheepshead feeding habits are simple ...they love anything that comes wrapped in a shell. And the easiest bait to use is going to be the purple or black back fiddler. If you can’t catch your own bait, I suggest finding someone that sales it. My rule of thumb is that it takes about 5 fiddler crabs per fish. What does this mean? You might lose at least 5 fiddlers to every fish that you catch. As the bite gets better this ratio will change, but when it lessens, it’s back to the same old darn scenario.

    It has been my thought especially when dealing with sheepshead while they are offshore that as long as they can see your bait they will eat it. I don’t think there is a non feeding time for these fish. Now stronger currents will make them work a little harder to eat, but I believe as long as the bait is there they will eat it! Sometimes if you add a claw, which puts some extra scent in the water once the sheepie takes the bait, it might just turn back. Sheepshead are basically hit and run feeders, because that is their natural. After all after they grab, crush, and eat there is absolutely nothing to turn back too. However, an added scent such as this just might make them turn back! Heck, you got nothing to lose so I suggest giving this a try! It an old school tool that you can use!


    Savannah Snapper Banks!


    Haven’t been, but I already know that there is quite a bite to be had in 90 to 100 feet of water. My suggestion is that if you do go that you not only give bottom fishing a try, but also top water fishing. I have been told all of my life that if you don’t give it try, you really won’t know!
    Gulf Stream Fishing!
    My suggestion is this if you get to go I suggest do so! This area is where the fish from the bottom to the top go during the cold times. The bottom fishing is fantastic and on the top water side these fish are always moving and you know when they move they got to eat!!
