Quite a variety of species this week at Redfish University. Earlier in the week, we performed some instructional and fishing catching trips in the bay system. Finding lots of redfish and speckled trout in shallow water resulting in some excellent topwater and sight fishing opportunities for our new and local Redfish University clients. Relatively calm winds and ideal tide conditions have made finding tailing redfish quite easy in the early morning hours. Bongos, Gulp! Jerkshads and Johnson 1/4oz. Gold Spoons are all a great choice. The coming front will make things a little interesting in the coming days but with the amount of fish, we shouldn’t have a problem producing big numbers of both redfish and trout.
This afternoon, we tried a little bay grouper fishing. With the front approaching, good tides and a better bite in the afternoon from the full moon, I thought we may be able find some hungry grouper. Large live pinfish and 20z. white bucktails tipped with bonita strips produced a few nice grouper between 25-27″. Not hot and heavy like it was the other day but not bad for a few hours of fishing. Many more trips to come and sorry for the shortage of photos. I will charge my camera. Thanks, E Holstman
