Thanks Fooshman and Jagg for the replies!
Jagg: Your friend is right on the money. I have also been catching some very nice adult Longear this winter. The Longear are hanging around at the ends of currents also. I guess it has not been cold enough for long periods of time to put the fish in deeper pockets of water.
It has been about three days of cold weather followed up by five to ten days of warm weather!
If the winter stays on the mild side this up coming Rio season should be a GREAT one!
Side Note: In the past I have always taken advantage of the warm spells during the winter and it has paid off all the time!
