Orlando Fishing fall report for Orlando Florida and Central Florida. Orlando Florida fishing in the fall means Redfish and Sea Trout with an occasional Black Drum mixed in. The weather is finally changing here in Central Florida and that brings on all fishing on the flats. The redfish and sea trout move up on to the flats forging for shrimp and small crabs. When they come up on to the flats looking for crustaceans being bottom feeders their prey sits under the grass in sand. When a red fish finds a crab he instantly buries his nose down into the sand scurrying around trying to pin down the food and eat it. When this happens you have to remember that it’s only about 10 to 12 in of water up on top of the flat so when the red fish goes to find that crab as he starts to bury his nose rummaging for the shrimp or crab his tail inadvertently pops up out of the water and basically waves at us from afar. We refer to this as tailing redfish. Not only does it call you in telling you its location but enlightens the soul as you see the fish from a distance which intern gets the heart racing and starts to create the adventure. As you close in on the fish you make a perfect cast debate lens effortlessly next to the red fish and Kabam fish on.
Fall fishing for redfish is by far my favorite. Not only do you get tailing redfish all over the flats but you get some of the most amazing weather central Florida has to offer this time of year. Being that it is our dry season it’s rare to get rain and along with that dry weather comes lower temperatures. Humidity is low very low during this time frame. With the lower humidity in the lower temperatures not only did the fish get happy and so do my clients. Most people are coming from the great North so having a temperature change of say 17 degrees Fahrenheit back home with two feet of snow on the ground versus 75 degree weather with no snow on the ground plenty of sunshine you do the math. The end of November can be very busy because of the holiday. We get vacationers from all over the country down here visiting Disney for Thanksgiving. Disney puts on an amazing Christmas display at all of their parks and it starts a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving so therefore Disney looks like a winter wonderland and this attracts a lot of people. It also attracts a lot of people to call me and go fishing so if you’re looking to try to get out in the flats and get ahold of some of this awesome tailing action it is advised that you call as soon as possible so that we can save a spot for you. I look forward to fishing with you soon give me a call and I’ll look forward to hearing from you. Click here to book a trip
