    December is a great month here as long as the wind does not blow your day. Inshore and offshore are very good this time of year. Offshore there will be decent dolphin,good sailfish and wahoo, and cobia around the wrecks and reefs. Inshore, trout are starting to school up tighter in the deeper areas. There are increased numbers of pompano and flounder. Redfish are here too, more so around Sebastian inlet and Mosquito Lagoon. Spanish Mackeral, bluefish,reds ,and to a lesser degree,snook should also be around the inlets. As long as we don't get really cold temps, its a great month.

    Great fishin in the winter, less boats more fish, only problem is getting the right day weather wise, a nice warmup with little wind is a great day,,,but they never fall on the weekend. :wink
