So it's November and one day it can be at least 80 degrees in the afternoon in Sunny Apalachicola. And the next can be considerably cooler. Neither I or the weatherman knows for certain what tomorrow will bring. If you want to know what to bring with you for your vacation here or most especially on your upcoming fishing trip, my advice is just to bring everything and dress in layers. Better make that outer layer waterproof!
End of November & December Forecast: Fishing is good on mild days, even with some wind. Trout & Redfish will be the staples, adding Striped & Hybrid Bass as the temperatures fall.
Be sure to head to Apalachicola for the days after Thanksgiving - at night we light up the town! Shops will stay open late and there will be entertainment in the streets.
CAPT. DAVID HEINE BIO
Capt. Dave Heinke joined us in 2005 after doing a thorough study of the Apalachicola Bay area with his friend & mentor, the late George Woods. Dave not only works part time with the FWC but he also builds his own rods, ties his own flies and can completely rig his own boat - which happens to be an 18' Hewes. Look to Dave for Redfish, Tarpon in the passes and striped bass in the winter months.
