Over the past week or so since my last blog I have mostly been fishing for Bull Redfish with my clients but I have had the opportunity on a couple of days to do some light tackle fishing for Trout and Redfish.
Obviously the hot ticket right now is the big Reds, but the Trout fishing has been picking up steadily. We did have some big tides over the weekend that made Trout fishing a bit difficult but in spite of that we found some solid fish. One day in particular we were on a steady Trout bite around high tide and went on the fish for Reds on the last of the outgoing and caught in the neighborhood of 25 Redfish and a pile of Black Drum.
Over the next several week the Trout fishing should get better and better and our smaller reds will continue to grow and their normal rate of an inch per month. The ones that aren’t already will be drag screamers soon enough!
My buddies Scott and Rob joined me for a guide’s day off one day and we went offshore late in the morning and were greeted by some extremely calm seas. We were able to keep our lines tight all day on some Amberjack, Almaco Jacks, Porgies, Sea Bass, Snapper, and were visited by some mondo sharks.
I’ve been surprised at the number of dates that have already booked for November and the amount of call that I have received every day asking about dates to fish over the winter. If you are looking to book prime real estate like weekends and holidays over the next couple of months I suggest doing so soon.
Thanks to some iPhone issues I have had trouble answering and returning calls. If you have trouble reaching me please just email firstname.lastname@example.org or text my cell number that is on the contact page.
