Very quick but awesome trip at Redfish University-May 28, 2010

Guided Mr. Trevor Thomas this morning for a quick trip before I left for Atlanta. Trevor was interested in the learning about the recent topwater action and where to target these redfish and trout. Started at first light again and started getting huge strikes and caught nice fish immediately. The redfish and trout pounded the surface baits until 830am and then we switched to Gulp! Jerkshads. Fished four or five very productive areas and was back at the ramp by 1000am to beat the heat. Ended with 15-20 trout including some 4-5# fish as well as 10+ redfish between 23-26″. A short but very fun day. Headed to ATL for the weekend and then another packed schedule at Redfish U. next Monday-Friday. See everyone soon. No photos today as I forgot my camera and my cell phone camera is...

It’s Time at Redfish University-October 17, 2009

Redfish University welcomes the first significant cold-front of the Fall. Redfish U. has been waiting for a week like next week all year. As the water temperature drops and the water levels fall  to extremes, the redfishing will become more predictable and 15-25 redfish days will be very common. Less water means less places to hide and the redfish will begin to concentrate in groups in shallow and relatively warmer water. Water clarity is also a huge plus this time of year as the rainy days become less numerous as the cooler temperatures arrive. Looking forward to showing all my clients some very aggressive redfish in the coming months!! See ya soon, Eric Holstman Click on this photo of a quality redfish on warm mud taken by Pete...

Redfishing heating up-Sept. 7, 2009

Guided a great client from Atlanta this morning in East Bay and south Escambia Bay. Hit some very nice trout early and then blasted off to get some redfish in the shallows. Again, poling and elevation allowed us to have many more quality opportunities at sitting, tailing and cruising fish. Ended up with 8 fish between 25-29″ and quite a few under 22″. Lots of fish, lots of action and hopefully, lots of knowledge gained. See ya soon, E...
