About all that can be said about fishing is that we are going through the January doldrums. Conditions are typical of January and appear to continue well into this week.

Jim Comstock had a recommendation for January fishing and that is to fish around the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) as it moves through upper West Bay. Comstock prefers wade fishing in the cold water near the shorelines on both sides of the canal. Reds in particular have been caught in good numbers in the area of the ICW between North Deer Island and Carancahua Lake.
