PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT PROSHOT CASE With the new ProShot phone cases, there’s no need to ever worr y about dropping your expensive iPhone in the water again. It’s so waterproof, you could even star t using your iPhone to take under water photos of the fish you catch. That’s the idea. It turns your iPhone into an under water camera. The ProShot Touch provides full touch screen access. Rated to 50 feet, it’s the most waterproof touch screen case ever invented. With designs to fit iPhone 6s, 7s and 8s, it is also compatible with all GoPro mounts and includes an optical grade wide angle lens. Think of the cool release photos and videos you could capture using just your phone. For those who desire to take their iPhones a lit tle deeper, divers should take a look at the new ProShot Dive. It turns your iPhone into a dive camera that’s waterproof to 130 feet. This case was designed for SC U B A divers, and it is ex tremely durable to handle the most rugged conditions. The ProShot Dive does not allow touch screen access, so the ProShot Case A pp was developed for full camera functionalit y. It, also, is compatible with GoPro mounts. If you have an iPhone, you’re already carr ying amazing photographic capabilit y in your pocket. For a small fraction of the cost of traditional under water camera equipment, you can turn your phone into a fully functional waterproof camera that’s as bombproof as phone cases come.

Fishing Report & Forecast Mayport By Capt. Kirk Waltz

The weather for the month of November felt like winter on more than one occasion. That being said I somehow believe that our weather pattern this year will lean towards cooler temps which might be a really good thing. The trauma we experienced from Hurricane Irma changed our fishing in October and November but, in a good way. The trout bite got kicked started, Virginia croakers fired early, and the flounder staged a little faster than in years past. This bonanza made for an epic fish bite that has continued and I believe will continue into December unless some really super cold front hits us. Look for the speckled and yellow-mouthed trout to continue to bite well into December from west of the Dames Point bridge to the Mayport Rocks. Float rigs, jig/shrimp combos, plugs, and soft plastics should produce well. Fish docks, rock piles, oyster beds, and grass lines from outgoing high till dead low searching for fairly clean water. I had many good bites of fish just running and gunning from shallow to deep water if I was consistently changing up tackle/bait presentation till I found one that worked. Look for the big rocks at Mayport to get really fired up on sheepshead, reds, trout, ringtails, black drum, and even margates. 2 NE FLORIDA

DECEMBER 2017

CAM_JAX_DEC2017.indd 2

Live shrimp on a jig is deadly but float rigs will produce too. Sheepshead can be finicky with shrimp so switch to fiddler crabs to get these toothy wonders to bite. Jig/fiddler combos will produce as well as ¼ of a blue crab or clams as bait. Try working tight to the rocks and move deeper if the bite is slow. Sometimes the fish on the rocks will feed high on the rocks and sometimes they are at the bottom where it meets the sand. Pogies were around in November and might still be around in December on the beach. If you can net a few run back to the rocks and work those baits for big redfish. Lots of slot reds can be caught in December with quite a few oversized ones in the mix too. If you’re looking for some black drum action try soaking a ¼ piece of blue crab in the deep water off the north or south tip of the rocks for good sized eating sized fish this time of the year. The bite in November was pretty solid and should only get better. The offshore action should begin to get better as the water quality begins to improve this month. Look for black sea bass, red snapper, ringtails, puppy sharks, and perhaps a grouper or two to bite. Try soaking some cut Boston mackerel, squid, cuttlefish, or even some huge jumbo shrimp for some fast action on the party grounds from Ponte Vedra to Rabbits Lair and beyond. Be sure to check the regs as usual for what you can or cannot keep. Good fishing to all and wishing everyone a Happy Holiday season and a Merry Christmas.

Fishing Report & Forecast Nassau Sound By Capt. Tony Bozzella

R

edfish, trout, blackdrum, sheephead, and bluefish is what we have for the remainder of the year. I will start out talking about the redfish since this is a great time of year for them. As the water clears up and cools down the micro organisms will die off, less boat traffic, and less rain will help in keeping the water clear. This makes for better sight fishing.  Fish the falling tides and target fishy areas like pinch points in creeks, flats and oyster edges can all be great spots to look. Having ideal weather conditions will help. No wind, sun up higher for visibility and behind you. Move very methodically and quiet, looking, as you see a backing or waking fish, get your presentation out in front in his path. Also you can anchor in these areas and soak bait on a TBS Jig. Mud minnows and shrimp work well, and also cast with ease. Let the bait sit still for a pickup. Lure fisherman  can use a dark or natural colored bucktail, (crab or shrimp imitation)  or if in areas of heavy oysters a weedless soft plastic. Through out and work the lure back with the current. Same if you spot fish lead him and

cross the fishes path of travel and be subtle!! Another reason for the bucktail, less movement with the action of the hair breathing, creating a very alive look, not to mention, they through the most accurate!! In  many of the trips I take, most people have trouble in accurate casting, so it helps to have a lure that does not “helicopter” and spin off coarse .Accuracy is everything. The bucktails hold water which is weight and through accurate and land soft with a crustation like appearance.  Also a good time to fish deeper bends and holes in creeks, they can load up on specked and yellowmouth trout. Bright colored plastic, bucktails, jig shrimp combos and float rigs all have there place and work well. Many fish will be smaller under the 15 inch minimum however numbers can be good. In these type areas and styles of fishing black drum and sheepheads will be in the mix. Shrimp work outstanding for the drum and fiddlers on the sheepies. Of coarse there will be an occasional flounder caught and a fair share of bluefish. Some of the areas inlets and points in the ICW with bait and current will hold most of the blues. Fun fish with lots of action. Every time of year has something to offer, get out and give it a try!!!

Fishing Report Pier and Surf By: Noel Kuhn

A

fter a crazy hurricance/ noreaster fall, things have finally settled down and the fishing is on fire! The Pompano run was late getting here and only the water temperature will drive them further south. They will stick around until the water drops below 65 degrees. So go get them now! They may not be back until March or even as late as April! The go to baits are fresh clams, live sand fleas, and Fishbites. My friend Scott frequently limits Noel Kuhn caught this nice redfish north of out on Pompano St Augustine on the beach in a large runout and all he ever uses is Fishbites! Our

two favorite scents are clam and sandflea. This is also big redfish time of the year. They are massed up around all of the inlets for their annual spawning run. My favorite bait is one half of a blue crab. That is unless there are still some mullet in the surf. You cannot go wrong with fresh mullet that matches the hatch. Today I caught a 43” Redfish at Vilano. Yesterday my friend Chip had a 44” one at South Ponte Vedra Beach. Let’s go get them before the water gets to cold and these big fish move offshore to deep water. The great tasting whiting are very abundant in the surf right now. You will never go wrong with fresh dead shrimp. Small pieces of bait and small hooks are essential for your success. I drop down in size to a #2, not a 2/0, to increase my whiting catch. Some very successful fishermen go as small as a #4! Cut your shrimp into 1/2 inch to one inch size pieces. Buy the way, the front half of a fresh whiting is very good redfish bait! Tight Lines!

Fishing Report & Forecast Flagler Inshore By Captain Chris Herrera

I

know some of you have moved to Florida to escape from the cold and snow but being that we are in north Florida we do get a bit of cold. When the temperature drops the water will clear up sparking our sight fishing season. Grab your polarized glasses a casting platform or stepladder and start looking for schooling reds on your favorite flat. Go ahead and sleep in as sight fishing doesn’t get good till late morning, if wind is not a factor, keep the sun to your back and when a school is located approach with stealth. Using a push pole or trolling motor on a low setting will get you within casting distance, when close enough to the school look for the lead fish or pick off the reds

located on the outside of the school. Small soft plastics like Z-man paddlers, small spoons or Sebile stick shadd work best for schooling reds. Remember it’s always best to lead your fish by a mile rather hit the fish on the head and spook them. If redfish refuse soft plastics try downsizing or changing lure colors could make the difference. Fly fisherman will bend a rod with any small natural color fly that mimics any small shrimp pattern. A Flats Bunny, olive being one of my favorite colors is my first choice of fly followed by Merkwans. Rat reds, Black Drum and dink Trout to just keepers are still occupying the creek holes and thumping any jig and soft plastic combo. Live shrimp with a bb split shot and Daiichi 1/0 circle hook or a Slayer Inc. Jighead and shrimp combo is the live bait alternative for trout, black drum or reds if artificial is not your thing.  Sheep head are another sight fishable species located during first of incoming tides on oyster beds on the flats or around bridge and dock pilings. Best baits are fiddler crabs matched with a Daiichi 1/0 Octopus J hook hands down but shrimp will do in a pinch.

Fishing Report & Forecast St. Augustine Inshore By Capt. Tommy Derringer

W

ith water temperatures cooling down this month, look for the inshore fishing to heat up. For me, the next few months are the most exciting time of year to target reds on the flats and creeks. I’m hoping for a cold-ish winter this year, as much as I don’t like freezing my butt off, the cold temps will kill the algae in the water, resulting in clearer, sight-fishable awesomeness. Hopefully the rain will let up enough for the tannins that have our water stained right now to clear out a bit as well. It’ll be time to go to your favorite flat, put on your polarized Costa sunglasses and start looking for fish. The creek fishing will be on fire as well. The redfish will push into the shallowest areas of the creeks on the low tides to warm up and feed on small minnows and shrimp. This time of year, you’ll get to sleep in and wait for the sun to be out for a while to warm up the water. Clearer water can mean spookier fish, so downsize your baits/lures for a stealthier approach. On extreme low tides the redfish, trout and flounder will get schooled up in area creek holes. A live shrimp or mud minnow tossed into those holes using a 1/4oz Slayer Inc. jighead can’t be beat. When up on the flats, look for darker mud and oyster-laden bottom to be holding redfish, trout, and flounder. These areas will warm up faster than others on sunny days; a few degrees can really make a difference. Another benefit of dropping water temps is the redfish

will start schooling on the flats. If you know where to look you can find huge schools of tightly packed redfish this time of year. Locate these fish from a distance by looking for “muds” (discolored muddy water caused by moving fish) and/or pushing wakes made by moving fish. Redfish singles and doubles can also be found sunning themselves in the shallows, especially along side and on top of oyster bars this time of year. These fish will be lazy so make sure to present your bait in a slow and methodical manner. When I spot a stationary fish, I like to cast long of him and at least a few feet to either the left or right of the fish depending on which way he’s facing. Then work the bait slowly back to where the fish is (this will help to not spook the fish). Sometimes they will like it moving a little faster and sometimes a little slower. It’s always fun trying to find the right approach. Trout fishing should turn on as it cools down as well. The overabundance of fresh water the hurricane and subsequent rain storms dropped on us this fall should be moving out and the trout should be liking that saltier water. My favorite trout lure for this time of year is the Slayer Inc. SST paddle tail in pearl paired with a Slayer Inc. 1/4oz jighead. The tail has a ton of thump and the trout just can’t resist it. The jig, jig, pause method works best for me. Target creek mouths, ICW banks, and any type of structure with moving water and you’ll be sure to find some trout hanging out. Sheepshead fishing should really start to get good this month as well. Target area bridges, docks, and pilings with fiddler crabs to catch the tasty porgies. .

As a a lot t people where is this comin than a The from going societ “Wh wartim knows


What does Heroes on the Water mean? By Tim Stouder

W

e are Heroes on the Water”, seems to be the phrase for the year. Many of our readers are unaware of what and who we are. As we are putting the final pieces in place for our Veterans Day Event this November 11 we are simple folks trying to help some “Heroes”. Many times we meet new people at our events. These people are special in one way or another and they are true HEROES. We have manned booths at boat shows, attended club meetings and provided literature, and just talked to folks at the boat ramps where we have our events. At these types of events/places it is just amazing the number of people that have no idea who we are and what we do.

As a member of the Northeast Florida HOW leadership team it takes a lot to plan and organize our monthly events. It is the smiles and new people that we meet each month that keeps us going. HOW is a place where veterans of all armed services come together and not feel alone. It is this feeling that they have someone they can relate to that keeps them coming back. Many times we hear that these events are more therapeutic than an office or class visit. The following excerpts are from a letter we received anonymously from one of our Veterans. This truly depicts what many veterans are going through and the struggles they have finding their place back in society. “Whether a veteran of the United States Armed Forces served in wartime or peacetime, overseas, or solely in the United States, one never knows by looking at her what she’s been through.”

“For decades after leaving the military I continued to be timid. I let people walk all over me. I was always worried, scared to trust anyone or to share my own opinions or feelings. I was insecure about every decision I made. I was frightened of my own shadow.” “I have grown stronger, more confident, less critical of myself, and better able to form lasting relationships where I’m able to express my feelings without fear.” “How in the world does paddling the water and catching fish in a kayak do all of that for a person? I don’t really know for sure, but I am pretty sure it’s not JUST the kayak, the water, the fishing gear, and the fish. I have never been part of something as profound as HOW, and the people who volunteer their times to this great organization” Read the full article at http://heroesonthewater.org/thank-youheroes-on-the-water-you-have-changed-my-soul/ The beginning of this article I stated, “We are Heroes on the Water”. This word ‘Heroes’ means something a little different to everyone. There is no doubt in my mind that anyone who has ever served or is serving now is truly a hero. On the flip side there every day ordinary people who are also heroes. Every person has someone out there that will always be their hero. We have volunteers who are “heroes” just for showing up each month and helping our Veterans out. So to each person that comes to our event, or volunteer just trying to do their part, Heroes on the Water means something to everyone. It is this special meaning that allows us to keep going and giving back. About Heroes on the Water Heroes on The Water is a non-profit organization that helps injured service members with their physical and mental recovery using the therapeutic qualities of fishing from kayaks. Every HOW event across the country brings together wounded military personnel for guided kayak fishing excursions. Founded in 2007, HOW has served more than 25,000 Veterans. The service is provided to the Veterans for free. HOW is a non-profit organization under IRS Code Chapter 501(c)(3). Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Visit www. HeroesOnTheWater.org If you are a Veteran, know of one that would like to participate, or if you are interested in volunteering or any other questions please contact Coordinator Tim Stouder at NortheastFlorida@ HeroesOnTheWater.org . If you would like to follow us on Facebook or make a donation to Heroes on the Water, you can do so at www.facebook.com/ HeroesOnTheWaterNortheastFloridaChapter.

December’s “Best Bet”

Whether You Are on the Water or in the Woods, You Will Be “in the Zone” This Month with a Wide Variety of Excellent Fishing and Hunting Options! By Terry Newsome

W

hen it comes to the best month of the year to enjoy the great outdoors in Northeast Florida, nothing can compare to the month of December; and for good reason. Whether you are on the water or in the woods, the month of December offers a wide variety of excellent fishing and hunting options that will put you “in the zone” all month long! That’s why I love living here in sportsman’s paradise! Within 50 miles of downtown Jacksonville (in any direction,) we have perhaps the most diverse fishing and hunting opportunities found anywhere in the world. You can grab your bow and slip into your favorite deer stand before first light and still have the afternoon to limit out on your favorite gamefish! With so many excellent fishing and hunting options in December, many of us who love the great outdoors make time to do both! In fact, I received a call (and photos) from Danny Patrick (owner and editor of Coastal Angler Magazine NE FL edition) who caught 50 speckled trout at Ft. George Inlet and harvested an impressive nine-point trophy white-tailed deer (from his 200-acre “farm”) all within a 24-hour period! Danny was definitely “in the zone!” YOUR BEST BET FOR DECEMBER Look for big schools of redfish, speckled trout, yellowmouth trout, black drum and sheepshead to aggressively feed throughout December as local gamefish transition into their aggressive “early winter” feeding patterns. (A few “resident” flounder to 4 pounds will also be caught this month as well.) However, your best bet for consistently catching quality fish this month is to target spotted seatrout (referred to locally as “specked trout.”) Over the past few weeks, speckled trout fishing in the

lower St. Johns River and area inlets has been fast and furious! Danny Patrick reports that his group has been catching 30 to 50 trout per trip (near the A1A Bridge at Ft. George Inlet) ranging from 17” to 20” in length with several outsized fish in the 5-pound class. Here are a few areas that hold good numbers of speckled trout in December: • Ft George Inlet A1A Bridge south pilings near the rocks at the old Camp Alimacanti Fish Camp basin (last of incoming tide.) • Mouth of Sister’s Creek area and the rock basin at the Southwest corner of Joe Carlucci Park (low to mid-incoming tide is best.) • The mouth of Fort George (Haul-over) Creek and along the Huguenot Park river bank (last of outgoing; first of incoming tides.) • Clapboard Creek near the boat channel pilings and bridge structure (first of outgoing tide is best; “outside” of channel pilings.) • Creek bends and deep holes in Robinson Creek, Casa Cola Creek, Stokes Creek and Pine Island (north of St. Augustine inlet.) • The ocean side and river side of the Mayport south jetties midway and out to the tips (slow moving tides; first and last of outgoing tides) RICK STINSON; A WORLD-CLASS ARCHERY EXPERT Another extremely-talented outdoorsman from Northeast Florida is Rick Stinson; an avid coastal angler and perhaps the most accomplished big-game archery hunter in the entire region. Rick has earned an impeccable reputation as a world-class archery expert. He has an impressive background having represented some of the top archery manufacturers in the world. In fact, he was a PSE Archery manufacturer’s representative for the state of Florida for 15 years! He is a “technical pro” with a pedigree of high-level archery equipment

certifications. (Early in his career he designed and engineered a revolutionary new sight for compound bows that was a breakthrough for archers.) Rick’s technical expertise is matched only by his experience in the field as a seasoned and highly-accomplished biggame hunter. What makes him such a well-respected expert is that he personally field tests hunting equipment and his innovative strategies. That’s why you will find Rick Stinson’s name in the record books! He holds several big-game archery and cross-bow records verified by Pope & Young (deer/antelope,) Safari Club International (wild boar/ alligator) and even harvested an American Bison (buffalo) with a bow from the famous Dee Dot Ranch! Rick has countless hours of archery hunting experience that he is eager to share with others. HUNTING DEPARTMENT AT STRIKE-ZONE FISHING If you are an avid coastal angler or outdoor enthusiast living in Northeast Florida, I am sure you have visited the impressive Strike-Zone Fishing store founded in 2003 by “fishing legend” Dave Workman, Jr. (located on Beach Blvd. just east of 9A/E295.) I absolutely LOVE this place and will find any excuse to shop there on a regular basis! They have an extremely knowledgeable staff and offer the BEST selection of inshore, offshore, and freshwater fishing related products found anywhere (including kayaks and accessories for your next paddling adventure.) What you may not know, is that StrikeZone Fishing also has a premiere, full-service hunting department that is managed by Rick Stinson. “I have been with Strike-Zone and Dave Workman Jr. for 10 years,” Rick proudly declared during a recent interview “and I have always had tremendous respect for Dave both personally and professionally. That’s why I jumped at the chance to work with him at Strike-Zone over a decade ago.” Strike-Zone’s hunting department offers a wide variety of hunting gear and supplies such as archery equipment, arrows, guns,

20 NE FLORIDA

CAM_JAX_DEC2017.indd 20

ammunition and much more. “We offer quality hunting products and feature several premium archery brands including Mathews, PSE, Bow Tech and Bear” adds Rick “and we also carry a good selection of firearms including pistols and hunting rifles. We belong to a huge buying group that allows us to buy our ammunition direct, so we have no limitations supplying ammo for our customers.” Rick and the company’s friendly staff are dedicated to providing the level of service that Strike-Zone Customers have come to know and trust over the years. “Unlike most of the big-box stores that provide limited customized services, we make sure that our customers get set-up properly” says Rick “and we custom tune each bow with precision by paying close attention to details. We have a 30-yard indoor archery tuning-range and also offer instructional training for new archers.” Having been in the outdoor industry for over 25 years and visited countless outdoor “mega stores” throughout the US, I can tell you with absolute certainty that Rick Stinson and the dedicated staff at StrikeZone Fishing will provide you with a customer experience you will never forget. Whether you are on the water or in the woods, we hope you stay “in the zone” throughout the month of December! - With over 25 years of corporate experience as a writer, director and producer, Terry Newsome has personally filmed and produced over 100 outdoor television shows and instructional fishing videos internationally. He is an avid coastal angler and is a former co-owner of Pine Island Fish Camp on the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Augustine, Florida.

Fishing Report & Forecast St. Augustine Offshore By Capt. Robert Johnson

Last call for Grouper This month is the last chance of the year to catch a Grouper for dinner, luckily for anglers December is one of the best months to accomplish this task. Grouper are actively feeding to store up energy for the upcoming spawning season. In the 80 to 100ft depths Gag Grouper are king. This is heavy tackle time with 100# leaders and 80# mainline. Larger live baits such as grunts or

pinfish are the best bait when targeting Gag Grouper. The fall Cobia run should be happening in the same depths. It always pays to have a jig rod ready. The same large live baits used for grouper will work for Cobia as well. Cooling water temperatures will also turn on the big Sea Bass. The standard double hook rig with cut bait should produce for anglers who enjoy theses tasty fish. In 21 to 29 fathoms you can add Scamp and the occasional Red Grouper to the mix. Smaller live baits usually work better for Scamp with a live sardine being at the top of the list. Large vermillion snapper and Red porgy will be chewing as well. On the trolling scene it will be the start of Wahoo and Tuna time. Sailfish will also still be around for anglers who make the run to the shelf edge. On a happy note, we had a limited Red Snapper season, Nov. 3-5; 10-12. Fishing was great and it felt good to actually keep a Red Snapper for the table. With these shorter openings being the new normal, anglers will need to adjust their fishing methods to cut down on discards. When targeting larger Red Snapper, obviously bigger baits is the way to go. My personal preference is a live grunt or pig fish. Big bait. Big fish. On a somber note, it is disconcerting when I read stories of local captains releasing upwards of 100 fish to obtain a one-fish-perperson limit, the question has to be ‘why’? The goal is to have longer seasons in the future! The BEST way to achieve this goal is to minimize discards! When the one-fishper-person limit is reached, change technique, move to another location, do whatever it takes to minimize interacting with that species. I know sometimes this can be extremely difficult, BUT, if we want to continue to have access to the resource, we need to be more responsible and learn to fish smarter..

Note the Boston Mackerel at bottom of photo which cut into 2 haves is deadly for large Grouper as these 2 anglers can attest…...

Fishing Report & Forecast Fernandina / Amelia Island By Terry D. Lacoss

O

ffshore bottom fishing at a multitude of Amelia Island offshore fish havens will produce nice catches of black sea bass and gag grouper during the month of December. Some of the more productive offshore live bottoms, wrecks and lime rock ledges are located fairly close to shore as well where small boats can access this winter fishery. Included are KBY, FA, FC, FB and Schultz’s Market, all located within 12 nautical miles from either the Nassau or St. Mary’s inlets. Fishing dead on the bottom with fresh squid, or cut bait is the preferred angling technique. Also deep jigging with a fiveounce bucktail jig in the white color pattern and tipped with a small piece of squid is an excellent winter bottom fishing tactic for black sea bass that can weigh up to four-pounds. Offshore fishing during the month of December also produces excellent kingfish action at Northeast Florida’s “Elton Bottom” where deep water live bottoms hold plenty of kingfish bait fish including large blue runners. Be sure and bring along plenty of bait catcher rigs while deep jigging live blue runners, Spanish sardines and cigar minnows while enjoying a holiday kingfish bite! Nassau Sound and St. Mary’s inlet and beach fishermen will be targeting black drum and excellent eating whiting while fishing dead on the bottom with ultra fresh shrimp. Tides are critical with the last of the in-coming and the first of the out-going tides producing the best action. Also if a flood tide arrives during the afternoon when water temperatures are warmest, look for the best black drum and whiting fishing action to come. Redfish weighing to 10-pounds will be schooling on warming mud flats during the afternoon as well. Look for large bays that have a mud bottom where crabs and shrimp are plentiful and also key to locating a nice winter redfish bite. Look for the best action to come during a low afternoon tide as well when water temperatures are warmest. Fish slow along the bottom with a ¼ ounce led head rigged with a Berkley Gulp shrimp in the “New Penny” or white with a chartreuse tail color patterns. December sea trout action is also excellent, particularly in the deep turns of tidal rivers and the Intra Coastal waterway. Once again a ¼ 24 NE FLORIDA

CAM_JAX_DEC2017.indd 24

DECEMBER 2017

ounce led head jig rigged with chartreuse, or white curly plastic tail is key when fished deep and slow for winter specks. Once the tide begins to fall, drift large live shrimp under a trout float in 5-15 feet of water close to boat docks, creek mouths and large oyster laden flats. During high water tides a black and silver mullet pattern count down Rapala worked slowly down the deep edge of intra-coastal ledges is a deadly technique for “Gator” size sea trout. One of the very best big trout drops includes the deep intra-coastal ledges located just north of the historic town of Fernandina Beach. Sheepshead weighing to 10-pounds will be taking fiddler crabs fished close to barnacle clad jetty rocks and dock pilings. There is also an excellent winter sheepshead bite at KBY reef where old concrete rubble is covered with barnacles as well. Finally largemouth bass will be fattening up for the coming spawn during late December in the many tidal brackish rivers including Lofton and Boggy creeks. Fishing in the deep turns of these rivers where a shallow shelf is located adjacent to deep waters is key. Wild shiners fished under a small float is always a sure bet for hooking into winter bass that can weigh up to 12-pounds!.

The War On Coyotes Rages By Nick Carter

F

or decades experts held that coyotes in the Southeast were nothing more than an unfortunate nuisance. However, several studies over the last few years have raised concerns that predation by coyotes is likely impacting whitetail deer populations more significantly than scientists previously thought. For many deer hunters, the song dog has become public enemy No. 1. Historically, the predators of the Southeast were red wolves, cougars, bobcats, black bears and foxes. With the human removal of wolves and cougars from the equation, humans have been the only significant predator of whitetail deer for more than 100 years. Following the sportsman-led reintroduction of whitetails across the region, use of hunters as a deer-management tool has been successful in maintaining healthy whitetail populations for much of the region. The arrival of coyotes about 30 years ago has thrown a new variable into the equation. Houndsmen are widely blamed for the introduction of coyotes in the

Southeast. They were brought here so fox hunters could run them with hounds. After only a few decades, coyotes are now widespread across the region and appear to have stepped easily into the large-predator niche that was previously vacant. The overall predator/prey relationship between coyotes and deer in the Southeast and the long-term effects are still not completely understood, but it is apparent that ’yotes are a variable to be accounted for in management of Southeastern deer populations. A study conducted at western South Carolina’s Savannah River Site threw coyote predation of whitetails into the spotlight. In that study, coyotes were responsible for close to 90 percent of a 77 percent mortality rate for fawns. In a similar study at southeast Alabama’s Fort Rucker, more than 40 percent of the overall mortality rate was due to coyote predation. These studies led researchers to unearth an old term, “predator pit.” On both properties, the rate of predation was so high that whitetail populations were unable to rebound through

reproduction. It is worth noting that hunter harvest, particularly high doe harvest, was a primary factor that brought population levels so low to begin with. A study in southwest Georgia and another one in northeast Alabama both found that removing predators, bobcats and coyotes, leads to increases in fawn recruitment. But controlling predator populations through hunting alone is difficult. Extended trapping programs are the most useful tool. In the light of such findings, Southeastern states have begun management moves to account for coyotes. Regulations for hunting, night hunting and trapping coyotes have been loosened. South Carolina, which has experienced a 30 percent decline in deer population, launched a publicity campaign promoting the hunting of coyotes. Georgia has reinstituted regulations that allow the killing of does only on certain days.

This buck loses battle and his life with coyotes

As is evidenced in other regions where coyotes are present, the species adapts so well that they are impossible to eradicate. Among deer and small-game hunters, the war on coyotes rages. But at least in South Carolina, the state seems to have accepted that coyotes are now a permanent part of the equation that will stabilize over time, “allowing deer, turkey and small game to still exist in healthy numbers.”

EXPERT ADVICE

Gifts for Anglers Choosing Sunglasses As A Gift DAVID MANEY, FOWLER’S SUNGLASSES

C

hoosing a pair of sunglasses as a gift for someone else can be a tricky endeavor. On the one hand you have your opinion of what you think they will like and then there’s the issue of the fit and their face shape that can make all the difference in the world in their overall happiness with the pair that you’ve selected. Obviously, the best way to ensure your selection is exactly what they’re looking for is to have them help you. Go to your favorite sunglass seller, and let your friend try numerous pairs on. Then, once you know their favorite, the task is easy and foolproof. But if you’re not able to put that together prior to a purchase, the next best alternative is to make sure the company you’re buying the sunglasses from has an honest, no-loophole return policy. Yes, save your receipt. I also recommend including a small note with the sunglasses saying: I hope these fit, and are what you wanted. The store name here said you can exchange them if you like. At Fowler’s, we make sure our customers have an easy and helpful exchange process. The right pair of sunglasses can be a gift that is appreciated for many, many years, and we make giving the perfect gift a little bit easier.

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT XTRATUF LEGACY 2.0 Engineered to withstand the world’s toughest conditions, the Legacy 2.0 is a hardcore fishing boot 50 years in the making. The latest addition to XTRATUF’s iconic legacy collection features an advanced new outsole that surpasses the SRC slip resistance rating, a textured heel for easy on/off that won’t get caught in gill nets, and a contoured topline binding so it does not rub harshly against calves. Acid- and chemical-resistant uppers along with shin and bib guards keep fishermen protected while a Polyurethane insole ensures comfort for long days on deck. All boots within the Legacy collection are 100 percent waterproof with unique performance features. Each boot is made with XTRATUF’s signature triple dipping technique, which creates a seamless barrier that is highly resistant to many organic and inorganic acids, chemicals and contaminants. The latex neoprene is ozone resistant and is softer, lighter and far more pliable than ordinary rubber. Cushioned insoles with arch support help fight fatigue and stress on the legs and back. All XTRATUF Legacy boots come with a non-marking, slip-resistant Chevron outsole that provides unparalleled traction on any surface in the most extreme conditions.
