November/December is a transition time for Florida fishing on the central Atlantic coast. With the changing season fish such as flounder, Spanish mackerel and black drum will start moving down the beaches from the north looking for an easy meal. With the unseasonably warm weather we have had during the last few weeks snook are still hanging around and feeding. Redfish will remain in the area moving around looking for bait on shallow flats, heading to deeper water during cold water snaps. Schools of jack crevalle, Spanish mackerel and bluefish can be found almost anywhere right now. As the weather cools down sea trout will become a main target species. Most trout will be caught with soft plastics and topwater plugs, which makes for exciting aggressive strikes. Great eating flounder will become another fish I like to target often during the colder months with them invading our inlets. Port Canaveral can be a great place to escape the windy fronts coming from the north this time of year and put a few flounder fillets in the cooler for a great meal. With more sunshine and milder temperatures its a great time to wet a line in Florida!
