8/6 Tailing Redfish

Hoping to get back on the fish Rocky and I saw two days ago I let Skip know early we were going to be taking a ride.  After the 45 min boat ride we pull up to the flat and immediately start seeing movement. As we pushed closer we started seeing tails, big tails. Taking it slow and waiting for the right shot, Skip placed a perfect cast right in front of the school and bam hooked up.  This fish was angry too making big runs and getting all the way down to the backing.  This 13lber on the fly was a great start.  As the day went on we caught more fish with even some school trout under the birds mixed in.  We covered a lot of ground today and even found some monster drum in the 30-40lb range but unfortunately they wouldn’t eat.  Great summer day!
