record-setting cold



Millions and millions

20 Jan 10 - "Fish in every part of the state were hammered by this month's record-setting cold snap," says this article in the Miami Herald. "Millions and millions of pilchards, threadfin herring, mullet. Ladyfish took it really bad. Whitewater Bay is just a graveyard," said Pete Frezza, an ecologist for Audubon of Florida and an expert flats fisherman.  

Water temperatures in Florida Bay hovered in the low 50s for days, and at one point dipped to a record 47.8 degrees.

"I haven't see a swimming snook in 10 days,'' said veteran Everglades fishing guide Benny Blanco, after returning from a charter trip to the Glades. "All I have seen is floating snook.''

Even the deep-sea dwellers - bonefish, grunt, snapper, pilchards, moray eel - succumbed to the cold, said Jerry Ault, professor of marine biology and fisheries at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School.
