Planned well in advance to fish a nice low tide in the late morning. We were treated to almost no wind and glassy water. Saw literally a couple hundred redfish moving lazily along the flats. Fly of the day was a small white and green clouser minnow. If the reds wanted it, they attacked with speed. Good January fishing.
With a wicked cold snap on the way, we thought we might find happy fish ahead of the front. Sure enough the flats were full of lots of eager eaters bunched together in big schools. Simon’s new hand tied fly patterns drew plenty of aggressive strikes!
Had fantastic conditions for 2015’s first charter. We were treated to warmer than expected temperatures and glassy calm water. Big schools of redfish cruised up and down the banks sometimes exposing their backs at low tide. The reds happily ate cut mullet and mud minnows fished on the bottom with circle hooks. By the end of the day, we not only had the first redfish of the year but also Michal’s biggest fish ever!
