Schools of Redfish are now showing up in big numbers on the flats in all 3 Lagoons along with some big Trout that are laid up in potholes soaking up the mid day sun. Water clarity is finally nice and clear like it should be this time of year which makes sight fishing top notch! These fish are also really spooky so scaling down your lures and flies can make a difference. Also slowing down your presentation can give you better results. Most fish that we’ve been catching are on D.O.A. Shadtail Cals on a 1/4 jighead in natural colors, for flies we would have most success on Clousers or Redfish Sliders.
Today, I had Chad and Kirk from Missouri aboard. This was their first time flats fishing which they did really well at. They had huge schools of fish surrounding the boat landing about 6 and lost a few as well. Chad ended up catching this overslot fish which is the biggest fish he ever caught in his life!
