We have made it to spring, and the time of year that fishing everywhere begins to take off. Creeks, lakes, ponds, the river, the Intracoastal Waterway, the jetties, and the beach will all almost simultaneously start firing up with some red hot fishing in celebration to the end of winter.

It is pretty easy to say that the winter months of North Florida are usually the “crappiest” time of year to fish here. Or should that be “Crappie” time of year?

Just like birds and people, many species of fish head south for the winter. Also, just like birds and people, these many species of fish make Florida their final winter destination. And finally, just like birds and people, the further south these fish decide to travel, the more crowded their final destination becomes.

We are approaching the time of year where if you are not out fishing, you just might be out holiday shopping instead. If you do happen to find yourself in that predicament, fishing tackle and gear make great gift ideas for anyone who fishes or wants to learn to fish. Tackle boxes, and what goes in them, are a good place to start.

As the days get shorter and temperatures begin to decline, the annual southward migration of baitfish goes into full swing. One of the many varieties of fish taking part in this migration is mullet. Both fingerlings and adult mullet will congregate along the Atlantic coastline, forming schools that can seemingly last for miles, steadily pushing south till their winter destination is reached. Timing for this bait run can never be certain as weather can often speed up or slow down this event. Frequent checking at the beach this time of year should eventually reveal schooling mullet in the surf, and when the run is actually taking place.
