Yesterday we went out to catch some HUGE Redfish on the reefs near St. Simons Island. We got there are found that the Sea Bass were extremely thick and they were eating anything we dropped down. We even tied on a piece of a rag and they would bite it and hang on to it all the way to the boat.
At the end of our first drift, on the last cast, we hooked up on a nice Bull Red on a small jerk bait. When she finally came to the surface and we could see her copper color we got her into the boat for a couple of pictures. The pictures of this Redfish didn’t even come close to how she looked in the water.
We made a few more drifts, stopping the boat with the trolling motor along the way when we got a solid bite and caught quite a few Redfish. They were all caught on a mixture of soft plastics and chunk bait.
