Default Whys it been so slow?

Idk about other places, but Navarre has been extremely slow this whole week. From alot of the reports it seems like alot of other people arent having much luck either. Is it just the time of year, or something else..?

water temps are extremly high this time of the year............makes for tough fishing on the piers.

i was on the boat sunday and pier monday. slow anywhere you go it looks until you get way out there. water temp fish finder was 84 deg. thats insane. had to go 100feet to just pull up mahi and kings. wait for a cloudy day or a day with little rain and those seem to be great on the piers.

yup water temps are too high.. the fish cannot stand it. the fish in this area are not accustomed to tropical type water temps. the pinfish seem to be thriving though if thats what you want.

with global temps and global seas continueing to rise better get used to this pattern every summer. and the temps won't start dropping till october.

fishing has been terrible up here in Alaska, too. Went on a deep sea charter, my father and I only caught two silver salmon and three rockfish.

IMO lots of rain = un-balanced salinity close to shore, coupled w/ hot water...current neap tide, moon etc…makes for tough conditions.

Went out in my boat yesterday just west of the pass for a test run and came across two pods of tarpon bee lining for the pier. Theres still fish to be caught.
