    I washed up on the shores of South Florida over forty years ago and spent all my free time in or on the water. The earliest I have never seen large schools of mullet migrating down our coast was October 15 and it normally doesn’t start till the end of the month or early November. This year fairly large schools began moving through on September 11, over a full month earlier than usual. The really large schools, ¼ mile long and 50 feet wide, containing literally millions of fish, should be right behind the initial small runs.

    On September 14 the first flocks of migrating pelicans appeared. Again, this is at least a month earlier than normal.

    The point of this post is that those two incidents might be signaling an early winter for the East Coast and I am wondering if this might be due to global warming/cooling or possibly because of the El Nino forming off the coast of Ecuador/Columbia. I have noticed in the past that an El Nino year usually causes fewer hurricanes to hit the U. S. because it displaces the Bermuda High that has steered the storms towards us for the last three years.

    Any weather analysts here that could give me a clue as to why this is happening?

    P.S. I was in the surf that first evening fishing for the predators that follow the schools…caught lots of snook, tarpon, barracuda, jacks and a couple of spinner sharks. All this on 10 pound mono, so I have had a great time.

    Hasnt been any unusual weather up here around the Great Lakes..

    a slightly cooler than normal August and early September, but not out of the "normal range"..
    been highs in the mid to high 70's the last month or so...fairly normal.

    I think I read that we have an El Nino this year, so it's quite possible. I did read that we are supposed to have a slightly colder winter, but that doesn't mean that any particular month or region between you and me and between September and Winter is going to be colder than normal. Hey, they revised their hurrican forecast downward!

    I hope we have a good winter this year...lots of snow!! But I'm not ready for it YET. We are having warm days, cool nites...its nice. And it rained tons (I guess a summer's worth of rain all in a week or so)...so my rain barrel is full plus all the other containers. Miss Leah Wilkerson is throwing two new pitchers.

    So...C'MON SNOW! (Just not 'til mid-late November...). AND I hope the price of natural gas falls like the gasoline has so I can actually heat my house this year.

    I think we're experiencing global cooling... alert the media.
