Catching Big Redfish in Cold Weather

Catching Big Redfish in Cold Weather picture

The extreme cold and strong wind did not stop Brian and Cody from landing five huge redfish within a few hours on a cold February weekend. When they paddled their kayaks out into a north Florida marshland at dawn the wind chill was around 19 F and the wind was blowing around 10-15 mph making it rough on the open water. Many fishermen believe that the fishing isn't good when the weather isn't good, but that simply isn't true. I have heard someone say that there is no point in fishing in the winter, but nice fish can be caught in bad weather.

Brian used fresh dead shrimp to catch the big redfish in the photos below. It seems likely that strong smelling organic baits would do better in extreme cold when the fish are slow moving and less likely to chase fast baits. Please share your knowledge and experience with fishing in rough weather in the comment box at the bottom.
