Hit the sound this morning with brothers, Bryan and Chad. They wanted to learn about catching redfish in the shallows and on artificials. Caught the early morning trout bite with Gulp Shrimp under popping corks, and once the sun got up, we went looking for redfish. Very few mullet in some of my good areas and the redfish were pretty thin and spread out. Found the fish to be very uncooperative and unwilling to eat a moving bait. Found a very nice concentration of fish and used 4″ Gulp Shrimp rigged weedless to produce our bites. Actually had to deadstick baits for at least a few minutes for them to pick it up. Worked hard and finally figured them out. Not always easy. Great for the clients to learn the techniques and patterns that work.Ended up with 15 trout and some very nice 24-27″ redfish. All fish released.
