August 2021 Inshore Update
Hey everyone! Just wanted to drop a quick update on the inshore fishing the last few weeks. Like the temperature, the fishing has been hot most days. The topwater bite has been really good on early morning high tides. We have had a couple days where we found schools of several hundred Reds in less than a foot of water! Other days, we've been able to locate singles along the bays and creeks.
Low tide Redfish has been pretty good some days too. As hot as its been, mid-day is not a great time to target low tide fish, but an early morning or evening low tide can be quite productive. We've had a some days that were a grind, but most were pretty good. On a couple trips, we had to fish live or cut bait to get the mid day bite, but most days we could get the bite on artificials or fly.
We've done some exploring and found a couple great new fishing spots. Not just for Reds, but for Speckled Trout too.
We have endured a lot of rain in August which has really muddied and stained the water. That doesn't affect conventional anglers or tailing tides, but it can make it a struggle bus for sight-casting on fly. Fortunately, the water has been really clearing up the last few days, and we've had some locations with crystal clear sightfishing.
If the water is dirty, we've been able to throw some flashy flies to get their attention.
Most days, it's much more about the presentation than the fly, but some days we've been able to cure a tough bite by digging through the fly selection.
Love the slick calm topwater bite!
Had a few very special mornings with some fly anglers over the last few weeks.
When it's good, it's real good...I'll leave it at that.
Love that blue on copper!
Popper fly for the win...
I love fishing topwater flies when we are trying to locate fish or are unable to sightcast to them.
Thanks for visiting...catch you later.
Enough rambling...enjoy the pics and let me know if I can help you in anyway. Thanks!!!
