Decided to take advantage of low tides early in the afternoon and look for some reds with the fly rods. The fishing was tough even though Rob and I saw over 100 redfish, several snook, and found a pocket holding some very large trout. Clean water was at a premium. The outgoing tide made the water off color which made it tough to sight the fish until we were on top of them. We managed a few fish by blind casting some deeper holes on the low tide. Fish were caught using crab and shrimp patterns on 7 and 8 wt. gear. I tried out the 5 wt. but did not get any takers. The Ankona ShadowCast got us exactly where we needed to be....in about 5 inches....where the reds were rooting through the grass.
