Cool KLO weather watch - Bring on the cold weather Mother Nature!

Yup....that's what we need around here....a few shots of cold weather to drop the ocean temperature a few degrees and change the fish mix.

Yup....we need it in advance of the Key Largo Open, but of course not during the KLO weekend.

Fingers crossed!

Here is this morning's forecast. Some cool stuff coming!

Forecast

Today: mostly sunny. Highs in the lower 80s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight: mostly clear. Cooler. Lows in the mid 50s. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.

Tuesday: mostly sunny. Cooler. Highs around 70. Northwest winds 15 mph.

Tuesday Night: mostly clear. Cooler. Near record lows around 50. North winds 10 to 15 mph. Lowest wind chill readings 43 to 48.

Wednesday: partly sunny. Highs in the mid 70s. North winds 10 to 15 mph. Lowest wind chill readings 43 to 48 early.

Wednesday Night: partly cloudy. Not as cool. Lows in the upper 50s.

Thursday: partly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s.

Thursday Night Through Sunday: partly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of showers. Lows in the upper 60s. Highs in the lower 80s.

Wink Re: KLO weather watch - Bring on the cold weather Mother Nature!

Yup... the temp dropped alright.

Now my fishing expert friends say we could use a little help from a swell to move the fish off the bottom and travelling around.

Re: KLO weather watch - Bring on the cold weather Mother Nature!

the 25-30kt winds i woke up to are not making me happy.

although i have some inshore patches that i can probably suffer through....assuming vis is more than 5ft.....since my gun is over 7ft long

Thumbs up Re: KLO weather watch - Bring on the cold weather Mother Nature!

Good news!

The water temperature is dropping which should help bring in the fish.

Check out the water temperature trend at the Ft. Pierce buoy over the past 24 hours:

http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=41114

It has dropped from almost 77 to 75 degrees in the past 12 hours.

That is a good trend for fishing around there.

Let's hope water temp falls elsewhere too.

The water temp keeps on its steady decline which is great for the fishing!

At the Ft. Pierce buoy I am checking, it dropped from 75.0 to 74.3 degrees in the past 12 hours. That temp is measured at the surface I believe, so I'm thinking it is somewhat cooler down below.

Another great sign is that the mackerel are showing up near Palm Beach Inlet according to my commercial buddies.

Good! Maybe your fish won't shrivel up.

And, you Keys guys and Girls will bring in some biggies.
