*** Redfish ****

May 19, 2015 by Matt Hodges

Trip Info


Its’ one thing to sight catch redfish in 10”-15” of water each day.  And with the water being gin clear here lately, its is great to do some sight fishing in the northern lagoon system (more so NSB south lagoon).  Then, for those that can’t or don’t want to get up early, the inlet bite is going great (as long as you know the pattern) for the much bigger bull reds.  Today-  lost 3 fish at boat side, but boated 3 Big Bull Reds over slot (over 30” long) all in a 30-45 minute period of time.  Bending the Shimano Trevala rods over catching these fun fish! 

Book your charter with me and you can have your pick -  get up early and sight fish, and/or go for an afternoon inlet bite for the big bull reds… 

Pictures soon to come!
