Spring + bad weather = put up the fly rod and grab the plugs

With the right conditions it’s hard to beat spring sight fishing for redfish…  That being said the weather is not always conducive to what you want to do. Lucky for us when the skies cloud up and the wind picks up, this makes for a perfect topwater situation.  Although you can’t see the fish before you cast you will certainly see the fish eat your lure which will still get your heart pumping.  It’s common to catch a multitude of trout in the 3-5 lb range and also redfish in the 6-12 lb range.  Topwater fishing can turn a bad weather day into a successful day on the water, you just have to be willing to try.

Spring Redfish on Fly in Full Swing

It’s that time of year again when the water warms and the grasses start growing, filtering the water. The interior marsh goes from a milky mess to a sight fisherman’s paradise within only a couple weeks.  The season starts around March with a few pockets here and there clearing up. As the grasses continues to grow more and more areas get filtered out opening up new areas to fish. These new areas are where you find the most willing fish to eat. Because they have been living in dirtier water they have experienced little to no pressure. By April we have seemingly endless area to fish. Because of the mild spring  temperatures this fishery stays consistent through Mid to late June with fish being active throughout the day. This is a great time of year to get a multitude of opportunities at redfish from the 6-12 lb range. Spring is also the best time to see fish either tailing and backing on shorelines or just floating just inches under the surface. Also with the warmer temps expect to get a couple opportunities at large Aligator gar cruising the flats….
