If you live in one of the Southern and warmer states, it’s still cold and windy as Jonas plows its way through the upper East Coast. That said, if you still need to catch your fishing itch, check out the calmer and warmer shelters of residential canals. Depending on where you live, some of you may find a very pleasant surprise. The residential canals offer protection from the cold north winds, and the dock structures create a great place for game fish to hide and ambush prey. Look for canals with a firm sandy or dark mud bottom – they can produce the best place for fish to hang out, especially if the tide is moving. The offshore bites should pick up again as the winds die down and the surface air warms. If you plan to save your catch for a few nice meals – we suggest having a Taco Marine adjustable filet table. The table fits into any rod holder and the mount locks at any angle. This FDA approved table conveniently folds flat for storage. Stay warm and catch lots of fish!
