Today started off chasing small pods of 10-15 in a marsh pond, and the sw winds and shallowness of the pond was making it tough to control our noise. So after missing a few shots at the pods we moved onto to some bigger back lakes, concentrating on the north banks of the lakes. We found several fish on each stretch of shoreline, but none were willing to eat. They either spooked as soon as we cast, or never flinched as the Buggs hit them on the nose. Around 10am the wind slicked off and we started to concentrate around drains coming out of the back marsh. There were a few fish in each gut, and I was waiting for the word to wrap it up. Then we hit our last drain, and the mother load. Literally hundreds of redfish using this gut. Just like last week we sat power poled down for hours. But, unlike the reds last week these were being stubborn. It was probably 1 in 8 that would strike. Nobody wanted to leave as wave after wave came by. I guess you never know unless you stay. It ended up to be a productive trip, and these repeat customers had a ball. Come on down and try your hand at sight casting or wading artificial, I have dates available for August and September.
