Guided Mr. Billy Thigpen of Flowery Branch, Ga. this morning over in Orange Beach. Billy is usually an offshore angler and a bass fisherman and was a ton of fun to fish with! The weather cooperated so we entered Mobile Bay at daylight and covered some very productive areas and found plenty of great concentrations of redfish. Very little water movement and cold temperatures meant very slow presentation. All fish were caught on Gulp! 3″ Shrimp in New Penny rigged on an 1/8oz. Marsh Works Bull Red jighead. Encountered groups of 100+ fish which were pretty difficult at times but we figured out the bait and the presentation to boat over 20 quality redfish. In an area that is usually productive with spinnerbaits and corks, we gave them the subtle approach and it proved deadly. All redfish released.
