November When the Wind Blows
The changes of the season are in progress and the transition of another winter starts this month. Just as the winter fishing starts and the summer seas and hot weather fully subside, we start the late fall runs of big sea bass and grouper bite continues to the end of the month. The cooler weather brings relief, I love having fresh air back in the house cause for the first time in months the windows are open. The first trip of the month brings on the taste of fresh fried sea bass and a nice grouper for the boards.
By the end of the month the Wahoo are in full swing and so are the cold fronts, you pick a day to get out and you have to be careful, the weather will change, and most likely for the worst. When you do get out there the fishing is phenomenal and the memories will last forever.
Speaking of memories I would like to thank all of you for allowing me to spend the last 5 years serving the club as the fishing director, then Vice President and finally the last two years as President. I’ve met a great group of people who share a common passion for the Ocean where I’ve spent most of my life in one way or another. There stands a passage of tradition in wishing you all “Fair winds and Following Seas” and I’ll add one more thing, “A Great Big Grouper Tugging on the end of your line” Thank for the help everyone it takes all of you to make this the Best Fishing Club in Florida!!
Thanks and I’ll see you at the Club. Chris
