Weather and Dress...Florida's weather conditions are unpredictable.
The weather (May through September) is typically 75-95 degrees. Normal dress for most anglers under these conditions would be undershirt, pullover shirt, and light windbreaker, jeans with shorts or swimsuit underneath, and soft-soled shoes.
The weather (October through April) is not typical. Early morning temperatures may be in the 30's with afternoon temperatures 50 to 80 degrees. Your apparel should consist of layers of clothing that may be shed during the day.
