Spring Redfish Action

Spring fishing is here.  The grasses have grown high enough to filter the water and the slot fish are happily swimming around, some singles, some doubles, and some in schools of 10 or more.  Spring fishing is a different game then big fish.  Fly presentation is much more difficult when you have to compete with the grass but luckily also with spring the shots per day generally increase as long as the weather is decent.  Here are some catches from recent trips.  Although we see plenty of Gar we usually don’t shoot at them unless its a good one (15+lbs), then we take the shot.  Here is a 17 lber that did not hesitate to bite.  Also here is a good example of why you should never forget to put sunscreen on your feet when wearing flip flops.   He couldn’t even stand up to fish it hurt so bad.
