A Cold Winter Offshore

As it starts getting warmer, the first places to warm up will be the shallowest spots. Grassflats, mudflats, sandflats—pretty much any flats with 1-3 feet of water. Every morning it will probably be chilly, but as the sun rises up into the sky, that shallow water is gonna heat up and those fish know it. They’ll come out of the colder deeper water and move up shallow. And boy are they gonna be hungry. Reds and trout especially. These predators probably can’t wait to dig their dentures into some shallow-dwelling food such as shrimp, baby fish and little mud crabs.
