The winter we have been experiencing in the Tampa Bay area has been rather mild. Cold fronts seem to be on a 2 week schedule and the water temperatures have been around the 65-70 degree range. Redfishing has been exquisite this winter and it will only continue for the next couple months. Spotted Sea Trout are an excellent fish to target through the next couple months because of their willingness to eat a topwater and artificial baits.
