Rollover Pass Report, Nov-23 thru Nov-29, 2015

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
Last week’s angling made the scale from top to bottom on the fishing action, and with this coming week’s cold front chilling Rollover waters, it’s on the fence as to what effect it will have on the fishery. One thing for sure though, THE CRABS ARE HERE with one 9 inch from point to point claw coming in. Redfish and drum of the LARGE VARIETY are keeping gulf side anglers busy with plenty of rod bending action for everyone. We are STILL expecting the major run of female flounder to come through but they are still holding until the chill of this front can wrestle them off the flats. This has been a KRAZY year with all the freshwater and warming trends we’ve experienced, but fishing and crabbing is still good here at Rollover Pass.
