Thermo Thinking

SHOW DESCRIPTION



In midsummer, the slightest dip in water temp can trigger the feeding instincts of many fish. Warm water holds less dissolved oxygen, and that makes fish sluggish. Successful anglers look for places and times when the water is cooler. This is holds true when Jeff Weakley and Capt. Bill Faulkner fish the warm waters of southwest Florida.



But the opposite holds true when fishing cooler months, when you're looking for pockets of warm water. In either case, having a temperature gauge on your boat may be your best piece of electronic equipment.

Don't miss this week's show as Florida Sportsman's Capt. George LaBonte has an exclusive interview with arguably the hottest sailfish skipper on the southeast coast, Miami's Capt Ray Rosher. George, author of Sportsmans Best: Sailfish knows just the right questions to get Capt Ray give you the inside information on how to catch Florida's most exciting billfish.



On the Conservation Front: Karl Wickstrom covers the latest red snapper court victory.
