Excited about the prospect of 70 degree day, Austin and John booked me the night before. No need to leave before noon until the water and the redfish came out of the grass. Found the same tightly bunched schools we had seen all winter. Cut mullet on the bottom was the go to choice as the redfish were way too spooky for artificial lures. Austin had the fish of the day with this 27″ beauty!
Having picked out a perfect morning low tide months ago, Keith and Jill were ready for some serious sight fishing. With light winds and glassy waters, the big schools of redfish were easy to see. The fish were happy this morning busting small mullet and flashing in the sunshine. Most importantly, they ate whatever was put in front of them: blue crab, cut mullet and artificials. At times, we could barely keep one rod in the water as the bite was so hot. Jill had the last word with her 14 pound trophy!
Spent a full day charter with members of the Bohan clan as they competed to see who could catch the biggest redfish. We were fishing the day right in front of a storm system and I hoped the bite would be on. Boy, was it ever! Redfish would just flat out crush blue crab. Matt got on the board early with a nice twelve pounder only to be topped by Joe’s fourteen pounder later in the afternoon. Colby, the birthday boy, slammed the lid shut when he boated a whopping 16lb. red!
