Rollover Pass Report, Sept-27 thru Oct-4, 2015

By Ed Snyder/Outdoors
With cooling weather patterns moving in, Rollover fishing conditions will only improve with every day. As of now, the redfish run is on which will merge with the golden croaker run. Then, as the bay temp chills further, the birds will start their feeding sprees over the shrimp and trout that are migrating to the gulf. Meanwhile the flounder will start their journey as spawning urges them to the gulf. This fishery will take us well into the winter months of December-January where it will all recycle over again for next year’s fishing season. The best of this years fishing is about to happen folks- Don’t miss out!!
