BRADENTON -- The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will be hosting two webinars in December to gather public input on the potential creation of salwater game fish and sport fish designations. The commission will meet on Dec. 5-6 to discuss topics which include: two boating related topics; gag grouper; and flounder and oysters in Apalachicola Bay. Tripletail should remain a good option in the coastal gulf when conditions are good. Anglers can find trout, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, flounder and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay. With water now in the mid 60s, shallow water fishing for reds should also be good. Look for them in potholes and on the edges of bars when the tide is low or higher on shallow grass flats at the top of the tide.
Easterly flow below headline criteria will continue across the marine zones of the eastern Gulf of Mexico through Friday morning. The local gradient is expected to then weaken further by later Friday and into the upcoming weekend. This weak gradient will keep winds and seas low. Winds will then increase out of the south early next week ahead of an approaching cold front.
