The only way to tell fall has arrived in Florida is the color change in the lilly pads, a few leaves falling from less than half of the trees, and nights that have become bearable. The good news is that has started the waters cooling off slightly, but just enough to get the bass to start schooling up. I noticed it on this last moon just before I was ready to call it a day around 11:00 am. It is still too hot during the day to stay much longer than that, but I had to cast into them for a bit. The sad thing is I didn't have anything in the boat that day that they really seemed that interested in. Oh, we caught a few on swim baits and a few on live shiners, but nothing to brag about, so I won't.
After we get some substantial fronts through to cool the waters even more, get your small bait gear ready for some chunking and winding into hoards of schoolies.
