Even with winds cranking over 20mph, Keith stuck to his guns that he only wanted to throw artificials today. Well, it paid off! Found shelter from the bruising gusts and starting catching trout at mid and high tide. Once the water came down, the redfish bite turned on. Highlight of the day was this nice double!
Three weeks of sunny weather have kept both fish and anglers busier than usual. Like most winters, the bite is best on bait fished on the bottom whether around structure or on the flats. A steady rotation of cut mullet, mud minnows and shrimp are producing well enough to keep the rods bent. Good times on the water!
Unseasonably warm weather has helped fishing in 2017 start off strong! With temperatures routinely reaching the 70s, the redfish are happy and a little more active than usual. The focus is fishing at low tide to the huge schools of redfish on the flats. Cut mullet has been working best with mud minnows producing as well. Make sure to take advantage of this awesome sunshine!
