Default fish on warm winter days?

I have been struggling to catch fish on warmer winter days. The techniques and locations I fish when it is cold, dont work. Trying to get some pointers or maybe some links. I've been doing searches but have only found vaugue info.

Do I fish deep or focus on the shallows.

I didn't have any luck new years eve when it was warm on bull reds, but seen some sheephead being caught and picked up one myself. Not sure what fish your after but didn't seem like the sheep were slowing down much.

I tried fishing under the OBA bridge today, we couldn't buy a bite.

I'm convinced that the heat messes up the bite

If you are after sheepies, take a square shovel and scrape the pilings. If they are down there, temp won't matter. We take a hammer and cutting board out and smash oysters to bits and toss 'em over. The difference between before we do that and after is ridiculous.
If it's reds or trout, I am of no help. I have trouble with those in the winter.

for redfish fish shallow water in the middle of a hot day, the fish like the heat too...... There's a million other variables like the tide, wind and water movement but winter time is awsome for catching red on topwater in the sun. Look for tails...

Default Fish on Warm Days

Look for the mud flats. The fish like to hang on a mud bottom on warm days to soak up some heat. C2
