What are yours? I am trying to decide whether winter steelhead or tropical bonefish (or both).

If there is enough common interest we can go for a group event again like we've done over the years.

Toward the end of January members of the Hooknose Society are heading to Belize, there to be savaged by 'poons, snookies, permit, bonefish, and the occasional boxfish. Really looking forward to this.

Headed over to the Snake and Rhonde around the first of November. Will put studs on car so that to me means winter.
Hardly anyone around after end of October.

How cold is it then? I am in desperate need of some steelie fishing, might not be able to wait until late winter

Temps here in early November are usually relatively moderate. That said, the bottom can fall out if a cold if a front pushes through. The good news is that the water temps are generally very condusive for floating presentations with hair wings and surface patterns. If your heart is set on swinging flies for steelhead it's a great time to fish.

Hey Juro,
Gator is right on. I usually stay until someone says snow is on the way and then I head home. All fishing on top.
