Default Re: Chasing Reds

Cold slows their metabolism, slows down the appearance and movement of prey items, and can vary a lot between an inshore marsh and water of the same depth a bit further out. In short Reds still eat, but a lot less as water cools and they move less. I've just spent a couple months not seeing fish in close here where water temps have been ranging from 60-65 degrees but a short bit away where the water temps are closer to that magic number of 70 Reds are being caught.
