How To PREDICT Redfish & Speckled Trout Migration


If you want to catch more fish, there’s one thing you need to know…

How fish react to various weather patterns.

For instance, do you know what fish do when a cold front passes through?

What do they do when it’s really hot out?

In this video, I’ll give you tips to catch fish in cold weather, where they go in warm weather, and tips on how to log your catches like the pros.

Good stuff on predicting inshore fish migration, huh?

Below, I’ll break down the different seasons along with a few other tips.


Cold Weather Fishing

Fish cannot moderate their body temperatures, so when the water is cold they have one thing on their mind: find warmer water.

Here are two areas that typically hold warmer water:

  1. Shallow water with a muddy bottom. Muddy bottom attracts and holds heat better than rock or sand.
  2. Wind protected shorelines. The cold wind cools off the water, so the wind protected shorelines are typically warmer than exposed shorelines.

So if you’re fishing in the winter, wind protected shorelines with shallow, muddy bottom are going to be your ticket to finding feeding fish.

Warm Weather Fishing

In warm weather, the important thing to know is that warm water has less dissolved oxygen (DO2) than cold water.

So when it’s hot out, fish are looking for areas with lots of oxygen in the water.

Two areas stand out here:

  1. Seagrass beds. Seagrass adds oxygen to the water.
  2. Passes and inlets. More oxygen can pass through a fish’s gills when there’s current, and inlets and passes have lots of it!

How To Log Your Catches Like The Pros

Another thing that separates the people who catch fish from the people who don’t is logging your results.

Taking note of your catches and the conditions can help you spot trends in what the fish are doing.

Some important things to record include:

  • Season
  • Weather
  • Tide
  • Water Clarity
  • Where you’re seeing fish
  • Which species
  • What they’re biting

Catching fish all comes down to spotting the trends.

In cooler weather, fish want warmth.

They can be found in shallow water with a mud bottom near a wind protected shoreline.

In warmer weather, fish need oxygen.

They can be found near passes, inlets and grass flats.

And if you want to hone in on these patterns even more, you need to record your results.

Now, recording your results can take a long time for you to gather enough data to spot patterns.

If you want to speed that process up and use data from thousands of other anglers, check out our SUPER-Community.

We have people from Texas to Virginia posting their results so you can see exactly where people are catching fish and what they’re using in your area (every pin in the image above is a fishing report).
