Getting the Redfish to Eat on Fly
Went out today around 10 Am to see if me and my buddy James Ferguson from Black Fly Outfitters could find some Redfish schooled up and ready to eat. For the first 2 hours or so we were doing more fish watching then fishing, being that we sighted around 75-80 fish some in schools some not. We found the fish but they were not feeding on any kind of flys or artificial lures..... Made many many cast on them and they just wouldn't feed but as the sun rose higher and the water got warmer found this this red around 10-15 feet in front of the boat sitting in crystal clear water, James made a cast on him and it was on, both of us saw the fish inhale the fly, Wish I had the Go Pro so I could get a video. Had some pretty good shoulders on him for a middle slot fish. And after that it was time to put the boat up and head to class.
Nice work man. I got next!
Thanks did quite a bit of poling to get the one redfish that wanted to eat a fly, poled anywhere from hannah mills almost to ft. geroge needless to say I was pretty tired after I got home.
