Very windy conditions forced us to seek shelter in the creeks making docks our only option and it was……..awesome! Huge redfish were smoking cut mullet on the bottom. With our drags tightened all the way down, it was all we could do to turn these fish. We even broke out the shark rods towards the end. Battled many, landed some with the heaviest at 16 pounds and the longest at 33″.
Left Shem Creek and heavy winds quickly ushered us into the ICW. Caught trout with popping corks and mud minnows as the tide fell. Best fishing of the day was on the docks at low tide. Reds bent the rods over as they smoked cut mullet. Great family fun!
For her birthday, Robyn wanted to go on a fishing charter. We had a special treat right out of the gate when Robyn and her son landed two 23″ redfish at the same time! Continued to catch a mix of reds, flounder and black drum for the duration of the charter. Cut mullet fished around docks was the ticket.
Redfish, black drum and flounder all fell prey to mud minnows on yesterday’s full day charter. Most of the fish were caught fishing minnows on an 1/8oz. jighead. Steve did a great job horsing this sweet twelve pounder out from under the docks!
Lots of bait in the water! Warmed up redfish heartily eating mud minnnows on jigheads and cut mullet on the bottom. Had good success as the reds came out of the grass and then congregated around docks at low tide. Shorts and T-shirt weather to top it off!
First trout of the year! Mud minnows paired with popping corks were the ticket. As the tide fell, the trout stacked up in front of creek mouths waiting to pick off bait. Great action until the water slowed then we moved to docks and worked on redfish. Redfish ate cut mullet as well as mud minows. Spring is here!
