<p>With winter not officially starting until the 21st we already have winter conditions upon us. Within 2 weeks time we have gone from the end of fall to full blown arctic weather and typical winter conditions in Mosquito Lagoon with clear and low water, cold water temps, and very low air temps. The forcast for the begining of this week worries me with the thoughts of last season with our fish kill. In one area yesturday I found 4 gator trout between 5 and 8lbs belly up and also a dead stingray.Red fish are adapting to these conditions well as usual by holding in deeper water over night till the sun warms the flat and then feeding heavy on well placed baits and flys. Remember to down size your tackle, lighter and longer leaders, smaller baits and flys and a slower retrieve. Speckeled Trout are still closed until January 1st and catch and release is not a bad idea when the season opens if you want to catch more in the future. Be safe navigating as the water levels are dropping.
