It’s no secret that fish are tuned in to pressure changes and its very likely that the bite will turn on just before a storm. Old timer anglers will often tell you that feeding also increases right before cold fronts, and that wind can push smaller baitfish in allowing for anglers to capitalize on changing weather conditions. Rain can also help as it tends to break up vision under the surface of the water making your bait stealthier than ever.
This was also true for the Snook fishing right before Hurricane Dorian. We received multiple reports of slot fish being caught on opening day just before the threat of Dorian closed in. While we can’t wait to tell you more about Snook fishing to get you geared up for season. This week we’d like to ask the Gulfstream Family to do our part in sending relief to the Bahamas. Below is a list of local tackle shops on the east coast that have committed to being collection centers for Dorian donations so far. Feel free to reach out at Shelby.Gulfstream@gmail.com to find a tackle shop near you that is accepting donations or to be added to this list. I will be updating this list as we receive word.
