This will be a VERY informative report today. Great advice for targeting redfish during the last few day’s weather patterns.
With very, very high winds yesterday, I chose to postpone yesterday’s Redfish University trip until next week. Today looked better and ends a very long string of Redfish University trips in a row. I think we fished every day available for 17 days straight. Thats busy!! Today, I guided Keith Jones and Cullum Miller for some of the same fantastic redfish and trout action from Tuesday. Now, Tuesday was very different with high winds from the south, falling pressure and great water movement. Today, we had north winds, rising pressure and very little water movement. In fact, it’s a neap tide. We didn’t target the banks or ends of docks like we did so successfully on Tuesday. Instead, knowing the same fish would move out and over sand holes in water between 4-8′ in depth, we rolled 1/4oz. Johnson Gold Spoons and Gulp! 5″ Jerkshads over large flats with said bottom. They were definitely there, both nice trout and medium redfish were very happy to take our baits. We scaled down to 12# Stren Tinted fluoro in Gunsmoke and really concentrated on slowing down and fishing these sand spots thoroughly. Got lots of trout and some decent redfish. All fish released. Taking a short vacation out of town for the next few three days and then back to a full slate of trips at Redfish University next week and beyond. Brought camera, battery dead, so we got a few shots with Cullum’s iPhone. E Holstman
