Today's Notes:

Not many reports from yesterday, way too windy and cold for most of us. However some anglers did brave the elements in order to fish the incoming front, and some fish were caught. Back waters of the bay, creek mouths, canals etc. If you try you can usually find a somewhat protected area to work. Looks like by Sunday the wind lets up and with the water temps dropping fish should be moving into these locations.
