Rollover Pass Report, Oct-19 thru Oct-25, 2015

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
Buffeting changes in our weather definitely put the summer fishing patterns behind us, especially with Mexico’s Hurricane Patricia topping our weekend. But predictions of stabilizing cooler weather patterns arriving this coming Tuesday, visiting anglers will be testing Rollover waters for the flatfish run. BUT come Sunday, November 1st, the flounder limit will drop from five to two per day with only a two flounder possession limit. Hopefully sand trout, drum, and croaker will help to fill those fish fry boxes or you’ll be serving hot dogs with your flounder. YUCK!! That don’t even sound good!!
