Well, we had a nice little break from all the fishing the few weeks and returned just in time for some very nice Fall weather. This can be a tricky time of year for anglers and inexperienced guides with small cold fronts, irratic pressure and windy mornings. It’s important to remember that although the temperatures are a bit cooler right now, the water temperature hasn’t dropped yet. With a morning north wind, blue-bird skies and rising pressure, it’s extremely important to be around large numbers of redfish/speckled trout and demonstrate the correct and most productive techniques and baits. This is yet another obvious reason to choose the proven instruction at Redfish University for your inshore guiding services. Normally in the Fall, a slow-walked Sebile Bonga will produce some strikes and this held true both mornings. I wouldn’t say they were overly aggressive but our anglers seem to always want to start with the Bongas. After our first pass, we turned around and tripled our catch with Stickshadds and Gulp! Jerkshads. Both mornings we covered 12-15 areas and caught fish in every spot. Both mornings yielded 30-35 trout and a handful of redfish in all sizes. Transitional weather can be a difficult and frustrating period for anglers especially in the Fall. It’s always a fantastic idea to book an instructional/fish catching lesson with the Professor at Redfish University. One class is all it takes! Cheers, E Holstman
