From Florida to New York, Atlantic anglers had one of the strangest fishing seasons on record this past summer thanks to the cold water upwelling phenomenon. Where water temperatures are commonly in the 80s in mid-July, this season they measured in the 60s. And yes, fishing suffered-and prospered. Although anglers hunting pelagics such as tuna and wahoo went for days on end without a hookup, those that recognized the changes in the weather and took advantage of it filled their coolers. Fish that like cooler waters thrived; species such as sea bass and mako shark, which normally thin out when water rises into the upper 70s, kept up a steady summertime run. These tips will help you learn to work with the weather instead of against it.
