Mother Nature’s Effect on Fishing

When it comes to advice, fishing is one of those topics where everyone is ready and willing to provide an exhaustive amount of advice. Whether it’s what you should be wearing, where the best spots to fish are, information regarding fishing is aplenty. For this blog, we’re going to take a closer look at the weather.

Let’s use something like the wind, for instance. The wind will push water and surface food away from the shore, depending on the strength. Certain fish types like baitfish will swim along with the movement of the food, which means it may be harder to catch the fish due to the windy conditions and the bait not staying “staying still”.

Fish are highly sensitive to the smallest changes in the weather. You may notice them feeding voraciously a few hours prior to the arrival of a cold front. The feeding will in most cases slow down once a storm has come and gone. After a cold front, fish activity may be low.

The idea of getting drenched may not sound appealing but fishing during the rain can reap great rewards. The rain assists with breaking up the view that the fish have through the surface of the water, which means potentially greater odds of a catch.

Fishing Law Aims to Protect Sharks


Fun fact: Did you know that there are over 500 different species of shark around the world? A number of these species have laws in place intended to protect them, which means anyone fishing for them is required to release them back into the ocean if caught. Here in Florida, the state is also looking to ramp up its efforts to protect these sea dwellers with a recent law implemented last month.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) must grant shore anglers a special permit, which includes becoming familiar with the shark’s habits and learning more about it via an online shark-fishing education course. The law is intended as much to protect the sharks as it is to protect humans. It prohibits anglers from bringing the sharks near the shore, requiring them to release the shark immediately after catching.
Though the FWC shark law is aimed largely at shore fishing, it also includes restrictions for those planning on fishing from bridges, piers, or jetties. Young anglers below the age of sixteen do not have to receive a permit, but they are still required to take the education course or be accompanied by an adult who already has the shore-based license.
