Had regular client Dan Davis this weekend as well as my buddy Will from Yeti Coolers. The wind blew like crazy all weekend, but the fish were still eager to eat. The redfish are really zeroed-in on shrimp right now, so a DOA shrimp makes a great bait for sight-fishing. We found several schools of fish in clear water and a properly placed DOA would get an easy bite. The fishing should stay dynamite through November – it will get really good if we get some calm weather.
Had another great day with George and Ethel. They fished with me earlier in the month and came back this weekend for their anniversary. The redfish bite was red-hot and the fish seem to be gathering in their fall schools. We saw several small schools of 5-15 fish. The big breeder reds have also made their way into the inlet – this is a great opportunity to cacth a 30+ inch fish in shallow water. Make sure to spend plenty of time reviving these fish as they are the future of our estuaries.
