Capt. Ken Chambers 's Tip of the Week

Consider the afternoon falling tide this week. With the new moon coming on Wednesday, the morning tides will be super low and with the recent winds, we may see muddy water until it gets higher.

5-Day Outlook as of 11/21/22

Strong tides and warming weather. Super low morning tides and solid outgoing water in the afternoon.

Techniques & Tips as of 11/21/22

Mullet are schooling up and these massive groups are a good place to predators. It often seems like snook and redfish follow the schools and let the mullet disturb other bait which becomes prey for the gamefish.

Current Conditions as of 11/21/22

Breezy but warming back up to above average temps. Dodge a few showers for some good fishing over the holiday weekend.
