Guided Mr. Paul Murphy for Day 2 of our redfish adventure at Redfish University. Started at first light and threw topwater baits in very shallow water where there were plenty of mullet and bait. It wasn’t long before we drew explosions from hungry redfish and a few very nice speckled trout. A few redfish actually porpoised completely out of the water to pounce our topwaters. Made for a very exciting morning of fishing! More blowups than hookups but that’s topwater fishing for legal redfish. Around 830am, we took off for some 3-5′ deep, very clear flats where there have been plenty of legal and over-sized redfish. Found a school of 30-40 fish and began hooking fish. Sight fishing and blindcasting were as equally as successful with Gulp! 5″ Jerkshads in camo. Even got a few Spanish mackeral in the mix. All fish released and at it again tomorrow morning with a 3 Day booking for redfish and speckled trout. More reports to follow. E Holstman
