    Placida redfish report

    Havent posted an inshore report in a long time but here goes. We fished the incoming tide started off sight fishing in shallow and as the tide creeped in we started fan casting in the mullet schools in 1-2 ft of water with salt and pepper bottom. We were throwing the new slayer inc sst on 1/8 slayer inc predator jigheads and sebile floating stick shad. We caught 30 reds a dozen trout and 1 small snook in about 4 hours. Most reds were between 24"-27" with a few rats and oversized fish mixed in. My buddy adam that was with me hooked a 14"-15" trout while he was reeling it in 10-15 redfish attacked it and when in got to the boat the trout was dead pretty crazy stuff. Any rate the reds are chewing pretty good get out and catch em up ....here are a few pics from the trip.

    Nice. Never heard of reds chasing trout. Must have been something to see.

    Great report, I see you have a skiff, would you consider the reds to be in shallower this time of the year? I am going to be in a 22' center console & will try to make other arrangements if I am going to be stuck in deeper water the entire week. Looks like great fishing

    I have a 22 bay boat too....I could have caught those fish out of the bay boat but would have had to make a lot longer cast. You can always bring waders and hop out of the boat.

    Skiffs are great way to work the skinny water and not spook the fish..
    thanks for the report keep them coming..

    I agree with Larry. Being able to get shallow is a good thing this time of year so If you can change your rental, might be a good Idea. Previous commentor had a good idea as well. Hop out of the boat and wade if you stick with the bayboat. I kayak and spend more time out of the boat than in this time of year.
