We had an outstanding fall with lots of blue sky, low humidity, and clear water. With water temperatures warmer than average, our summer species were slow to depart. Flycasters caught jack crevalle, pompano, Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, bluefish, redfish, and black drum. Big schools of bull redfish finally hit the surface Thanksgiving week, and continued to provide explosive top-water action throughout the season. Check out the photos below for the three 2005 boat records landed in the fall. For other examples of the year's action, see our Photo Gallery for Winter 2005, our Photo Gallery for Spring 2005, or our Photo Gallery for Summer 2005. Click here to return to the 2006 gallery.
